Best foundations for oily skin

So long, shine!

Like everything else in this world, oily skin also has its pros and cons. You might be surprised to know that girls with oily skin have the biggest advantage in the world i.e. fewer wrinkles! Isn’t that amazing girls? However, the disadvantage is that in hot and humid weather, you can have foundation dripping off your face halfway through the day. What a horror!

However, advances in makeup technology is taking away the horrors of oily skin girls, making it easier than ever to find foundations that won’t leave you looking like a greasy ball by the end of the day.

Beauty expert, Tanisha diwan, lists things to keep in mind before picking up a foundation-

  • ·      Look for products without shimmer as they can make you look super-shiny and give the illusion of more oil on your skin.
  • ·      Stick to liquid or cream formulas. Powders can sometimes cake up on the skin.


5 of our favorite foundations for the oily skin are:

1) Maybelline Fit Me Matte Poreless Foundation

 With an incredible coverage, this foundation leaves you skin looking flawless and so fresh. This light weight foundation, containing micro-powders which absorb the excess oil for a matte finish.
