When you have naturally shiny skin it becomes difficult to choose the perfect foundation that controls excess oil production and lasts long as well. One of the most common problem that people with oily skin face while wearing makeup is it’s meltdown. If you choose the wrong formula which is not suitable according to your skin type then these issue might come up. Today in this blog post I’ll be sharing with you all my tried and tested favourite foundations for oily skin.
Maybelline Fit Me! Matte+ Pore less Foundation
This foundation from maybelline has a very smooth and creamy formula. The consistency of this one is a little thick but the best part is it doesn’t feel heavy on the skin. Though this is not a full coverage foundation still you can manage to get the perfect coverage by applying two layers of it. It gives a velvet Matte finish to the skin. It doesn’t look Cakey at all. This one very nicely controls oil build up on the face and is absolutely the perfect match for oily skin. I find this foundation completely worth the price. This foundation is available in a tube as well as glass bottle packaging. If you see someone who prefers using foundation on a daily or regular basis then the glass bottle is the perfect pick for you but, if you prefer using foundation less then the I’d suggest you to go with the tube.
L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation
The L’oreal infallible foundation has a creamy, light weight texture and provides excellent coverage. If you are looking for a foundation with full coverage and don’t want that patchy white cast on your face then this is the perfect match for you. It gives an amazing coverage and doesn’t let your skin look oily. It perfectly covers up blemishes and dark circles and believe me you won’t even need any concealer while using it at night time. It dries up real quick so you’ll need to be fast with the application or else you might end up getting a patchy look. This one lasts for around 6-7 hrs which is a decent staying power.
M.A.C Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation
If you have oily skin and you are looking forward to investing in a good foundation or say a holy grail then M.A.C studio fix powder plus foundation is made for you. This one has a very velvety soft texture and absorbs into the skin like magic. This one gives the most perfect matte finish to the skin. This lasts for around 8-9 hrs which is undoubtedly a long stay. If you are going out for an important event then you can apply it over your foundation for the perfect finish. If you have to go for quick, unplanned events then just apply your regular moisturiser, primer, finish with this one and you are all set to go. This one comes on the expensive side but is worth every penny.
NYX Stay Matte But Not Flat Powder Foundation
This powder foundation from NYX is nothing but flawless. The best thing about this foundation is that the texture of this one isn’t powdery at all. Believe me when i say this, just one swipe and you are all set. The coverage of this one is absolutely to die for. I’ve always been in love with foundations that look natural and are light weight and this one is a blend of both the things. It gives a very natural finish matte and feels so light on the skin. This one is sweat & water resistant which makes it completely perfect for oily skin type. Lasts for around 5-6 hrs.
Lakme 9 To 5 Flawless Matte Complexion
If you are looking for a compact powder to control the extra shine on your face then this one from lakme is the perfect pick for you. This one is easily available online as well as offline and isn’t too expensive to try. It has a soft, satiny finish and is very light on the skin and evens out complexion to a very nice extent. The lasting period isn’t too long as it lasts for around 3-4 hrs after which you’ll have to give it a touch up. It doesn’t leave any white cast on the face which is another plus point about this one. The price that it comes in completely justifies the job it does. This one is available in three different shades.
