Best Foundation Makeup for Oily Skin

FOR A SMOOTH, SHINE-FREE FINISH

Hey, oily-skinned beauties! Let's start with the good news: Those with extra built-in lubrication are blessed with smoother skin that's less prone to wrinkling and often has more natural sun protection. Plus—dewiness is in! So, yay! There's that.


But, on the flip side, those with oily skin know that, unless you choose your products wisely, The Slide is real, and keeping makeup fresh and melt-free is a struggle. Foundation is especially prone to getting patchy and sliding off—and with that base layer goes your carefully-applied everything else. Frustrating!


That's why it's extra-important if you have oily skin to choose products designed specifically for your skin type. If you've struggled with The Shine but never tried products geared towards it, trust us. It's a total game changer. Here are our recommendations:

Surprisingly, a mattifying foundation primer is a great product for oily skin. It's just an extra layer of power for your face! Used under foundation, Fit Me Matte + Poreless Mattifying Primer makes pores invisible, cuts shine and helps makeup last longer.


If you've got oily skin then you most likely already have powder in your beauty arsenal—it's the ultimate instant shine fix. But! Not all are created equal. Pressed powders—and even some loose powders—are often loaded with oils. While they might provide a quick-fix for greasiness, they could actually be contributing to your makeup meltdown. Our pick? Dusted over makeup and throughout the day, Shine-Free Oil Control Loose Powder keeps skin fresh, clean, and shine-free for hours and is, as the name suggests, 100% oil free.
