Best Foundations for Oily Skin!

Having oily skin is incredibly frustrating. You catch a glimpse of your reflection in the mirror halfway through the day and you don’t even recognize the hot mess that’s staring back at you.

But there’s good news! Out of all the skin types, oily skin tends to age the best. So you don’t have to worry about those fine lines creeping up on you anytime soon.

So which foundation is best for oily skin? With an oily complexion, it’s best to go with powder formulas because they help absorb excess oil. But if you’re looking for more coverage, here are the top liquid foundations for oily skin!

1. MAYBELLINE Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation

There’s a lot of hype about Maybelline’s Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation ($8). So the question here is, does it deserve all the hype? Absolutely. 

This foundation performs just as well (if not better) as most high-end foundations! It’s got a decent shade range, but if you can’t find your exact match you could always mix two different shades together. Even if you grab two bottles, it’s only going to cost a fraction of the price as one bottle of a high-end foundation!

What’s the verdict? This is the best go-to foundation for everyday wear. It’s affordable, blends well, and you get buildable coverage.

2. URBAN DECAY Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup

Not a fan of the sticky, heavy feeling you get from liquid foundation? Well, with Urban Decay’s Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition foundation ($49), you don’t have to worry about any of that.

As its name suggests, the formula is weightless and it barely feels like you’re wearing any foundation. With buildable coverage from sheer to medium, the lightweight formula creates an airbrushed effect on your skin.

What’s the verdict? This is the best foundation for a sheer, barely-there type of feeling. It’s incredibly lightweight, controls shine, and blends seamlessly into your skin!

3. ESTÉE LAUDER Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup

Estée Lauder’s Double Wear foundation ($42) does a phenomenal job when it comes to controlling oil throughout the day. Although it gives you full coverage, you still don’t get that heavy mask-like feeling. With super buildable coverage from medium to full, it does a great job at hiding imperfections without concealer!

What’s the verdict? This is the best foundation to go with if you want your makeup to stay put! It’s perfect for covering imperfections or blemishes and keeps shine to a minimum even after an incredibly long day.
