What Is The Best Foundation For Oily Skin?

This is a question I get asked all the time so I wanted to help all those who feel they struggle when it comes to choosing the right foundation.

I’ve narrowed the search down for you. This is a list of foundations I feel are best for oily skin – this is from personal experience and lots of research. (This list won’t include brands on the BDS list)

As always, I recommend trying foundations out first (plus remember to check the colour in daylight as opposed to under the department store lights) or if you can, try obtaining a sample. It gives you a chance to try before you buy especially with more expensive foundations. The last thing you want is to fork out all that cash and find it isn’t the right product for you. 

I’ve got a mixture of high street and high-end products – whatever works for your budget. 

1. Rimmel – Stay Matte Foundation


👍 Oil Free 👍Lightweight 👍Shine Control.

👎 Poor colour selection 

2. No. 7 – Beautifully Matte


👍 Oil Free 👍 SPF15 👍 Good Coverage 👍 Estée Lauder Double Wear Dupe

👎 Poor shade range for darker skin tones

3. Benefit – Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation


👍SPF 25 👍 Oil Free

👎 Poor colour selection for darker skin tones 

4. Bare Minerals – Matte Foundation


👍 Oil/Talc Free 👍 Mineral Based 👍 SPF15 👍 Good Colour Selection 

5. Makeup Forever – Mat Velvet + Foundation


👍 Good shade range 👍Oil Free

👍 Natural Finish

6. Stila – Stay All Day Foundation


👍 Oil Free 👍 Fragrance Free 

👎 Poor colour selection for lighter skin tones

7. NARS – All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation


👍 Long Lasting 👍 Good Shade Range 👍 Lightweight

It’s always difficult looking for the right foundation so I hope this list helps in making things a tad bit easier. 

For all the dry skin ladies – I haven’t left you out. I will be posting a foundation list very soon! 

Happy shopping ! 💋
