Best foundation for oily skin

People with oily skin have to be very careful when getting a foundation for themselves as getting one that does not help to control the oil on the face will ruin your makeup before you go half of your day. I for one have a very oily face and my nose seems to produce a whole lot of oil and in no time, its all ruined. So I suffered a lot before I finally got myself what works best for me. Am here to help you too.

The foundation is a fundamental tool in creating a makeup look and using the perfect one for your skin goes a long way to make sure that your makeup is not falling down your cheek before its mid day.

A secondary factor which is usually neglected is the kind of makeup brush people use to apply their foundation and how. You can check out this post on makeup brushes and how they are used.

I understand that most people with oily skin finds it very difficult to get an oil free foundation for their face. So, here are the best foundations for oily skin.

This is another of my favorite foundation products. This is a foundation for flawless coverage, matte so keeps the skin dry through the day while hydrating it so the skin doesn’t dry out. The foundation gives off a natural, non-greasy look. This works perfect if you have large pores or oily skin.

Revlon ColorStay Foundation| N3,800

Here is another foundation that lasts long on oily skin and has sun protection. I haven’t used this particular product before but from my research and the reviews I have read, I know it is a nice one. The lightweight formula it features stay on for up to 24 hours! It is waterproof so it keeps your makeup on for the better part of the day. It’s great for oily and combination skin as it glides on smoothly and matte.


**Bonus tips

In other to further help your foundation last longer on your face, use oil free primers. Primers help to lock in the moisture and helps your makeup stay put the whole day.

When applying primers, concentrate on the areas of your face that is prone to produce more oil. Areas like your nose, forehead, and chin.
