What is the best foundation for oily skin?
I have very oily skin so finding the right foundation has been an on and off journey because everything I've found has either made my face break out or just feel even more oily. Are there any other options out there that are better for people with really oily skin?
First is brand: Mark. Matte chance lotion. It keeps your face from getting shiny. This is the only one i ever found that contols it a long time. I have used youngevity brand minerals powder foundation. Miss america wears this brand. If you want a link to either, i can share that.
I also struggle with oily skin so I'm always searching for cosmetic products that will help control the oil (or at least not make it worse!) One of my favorite cosmetic brands is Neutrogena. They have a specific line of products for "shine control" that I really love. It helps control oil and prevent that shiny look that you may tend to get throughout the day. They have a shine control primer, shine control powder, and a shine control liquid foundation. I also like that these products are pretty affordable.
Some other tips that I can give you based on my personal experiences is to steer clear of any foundations with spf in them. Anything with spf seems to exacerbate my oily skin (and also causes my skin to breakout). Go for foundations and makeups that clearly state "oil free" because if you don't you're just adding extra oil to your skin that you probably don't need. Also, if you don't need to use liquid foundation try using only powder. The powder foundations help to absorb some of the oil while liquid foundations usually make it worse or harder to control. I wrote an informative Hub on some natural remedies for oily skin, you can check it out here...http://alisharenee.hubpages.com/hub/Oily-Skin-Home-Remedies.
Best of luck!
I have oily skin and prefer a powder based foundation. I use Bare mineral matte formula. It works for my skin.
Bare Minerals Matte foundation. It is the only thing that doesn't break out my skin and it keeps the t-zone oil at bay all day. It's amazing.
