What kind of make up, particularly foundation should I use for oily skin?
Go to Walmart. For $6 you can purchase a "Clean & Clear" product that stops your face from being oily for 8 hours. After three days of wearing the product while I slept, my face didn't have as many pimples and you could actually see me. Typically, powdered foundation helps keep your skin less oily. When using the liquid or paste-like products, they make my face more oily.
This is my kind of question because I don't know anyone who has oilier skin than me. Smashbox and MAC are the best. Expensive yes, but they last for hours and worth every penny.
There are cheaper versions of course. Just go for anything that's water based and if you see the word "moisturize", do NOT get it. Remember, you don't need the moisture.
Foundations are not good for the skin. A dermatologist told me 38 years ago all the skin needs is water and drying with a good rough towel.
Probably mineral makeup - no matter your skintone. Liquid foundations should probably be avoided. Though, if you have lighter skin, I'd recommend a BB Cream, such as Skin79. Avoid American brands - they're oily!
If you can avoid using liquid foundation you should do so because it tends to make skin more oily. Use a simple powder foundation because the powder helps absorb excess oil throughout the day. Also, choose makeup that clearly states "oil free" on the label. There is a good line of products from Neutrogena that are "shine control" products that help control oily skin. They are not as expensive as some products out there.
