Having oily skin can be tricky but once you find products that work for your skin, you will always have good makeup days!
Oily skin can really be a pain (I would know). It’s hard to find products that work for your skin, and it can be even more difficult to find foundations that work with your skin, stay on, and still look good after hours of wear. Over the years I have tried and tested a number of different foundations, and have finally found the four best foundations for oily skin!
I couldn’t write a list of the best foundations for oily skin without adding this product. The Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation is a cult classic and it’s definitely worth the hype. It’s a product that I have used for a number of years and I am obsessed with how well it works on my skin. Firstly, this foundation applies like a dream. It has a medium to full coverage, so it covers up all of my imperfections, magically lasts hours on my skin and still looks good at the end of the day. This foundation does have a matte finish so if that’s not your favourite look you might want to skip this one. The longevity of this foundation is truly amazing, I can apply this product in the morning and will only need to touch up with a bit of powder just once. By the end of the day my skin still looks pretty great.
If you have tried the legendary Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray, then you will definitely love this foundation. It’s actually one of the best-selling foundations of all time, which is one of the reasons I had to add it to this list. I have used this foundation a number of times and it’s one of my absolute favourites. The best thing about this foundation is the gel-based formula that glides onto the skin so easily and create a flawless base. Whenever I wear this foundation, I know I’m going to have a good makeup day! This is also a foundation I wear if I’m going on a night out and I know I need my makeup to last hours in a hot environment. If you are someone who’s out all day and night then make sure that this foundation doesn’t move an inch with the All Nighter Setting Spray!
When I first tried this foundation, I had no idea how much I would love it. It is so affordable at only £5, but it works just as well as the more expensive options on this list. This product works perfectly at covering all of my imperfections because of its medium to full coverage, and is buildable if you want full coverage. Another reason why I love this product is that it has a lovely velvety matte finish that doesn’t look too cakey on the skin, even if you do layer it up. For a foundation that is so affordable it performs very well and is another product that lasts a really long time on the skin without wearing away. It also doesn’t make my skin look too oily. All I have to do is blot my skin maybe once or twice throughout the day, but my skin still looks like I’ve only just applied my makeup.
Another affordable option for people prone to oily skin is the Sleek MakeUp Lifeproof Foundation. This foundation is a little different to the others on this list because it is very buildable. One layer would be a nice natural base but you can build it up for more coverage. This product is also oil free, so it’s perfect for people with oily skin because it creates a shield on the skin to protect it against everyday life. It is very lightweight, so it doesn’t feel like you have anything on your face, making it really comfortable to wear. I wore this foundation for a full workday in the summer and my skin still looked amazing by the end of the day. If you’re looking for a new affordable foundation I would 100% recommend this one.
