It’s mid-day, having your break and doing touch-ups but then, when glancing on the mirror, your t-zone, sides of your face, and chin are becoming reflective surfaces.
This concern is not uncommon among many women, men as well, with oily skin.
Don’t fuss; today, we've rounded up 6 foundations that are formula specifically suited to last for hours while making your face oil-free and flawless. (Not in any particular order)
1. CoverGirl Clean Oil Control Liquid Makeup
You can’t beat the price and performance of this drugstore foundation. It absorbs and controls oil without over-drying the skin.
Meanwhile, the lightweight liquid formula delivers what pretty much anyone wants from their foundation: a clean, fresh-looking face, matte finish.
And like all of the foundations on this list, it won’t clog pores or trigger breakouts.
2. Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra 24H Foundation
Matte foundations tend to be on the thick side.
But not with Lancôme’s Teint Idole Ultra 24H Foundation.
It’s saturated with water molecules that makes it light and fluid in texture without compromising on coverage.
It glides over the skin, reduces shine and hides pores for good 18 hours. HELL YEAH BABY!
3. Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Even Finish Compact Foundation
For those who prefer powder, this travel-friendly foundation offers a matte finish, mops up excess oil in its path and creates a barrier against heat and humidity for 12 hours of wear. Hasta la vista baby!
The sponge also makes application fuss-free, no matter when or where. Cookie points!
4. Laura Mercier Silk Crème Oil Free Photo Edition
This matte finish foundation is luxuriously creamy and goes on extremely easily.
But as it is a fuller coverage foundation, use a brush instead of your finger for the best blending results.
Apply over a good primer, and you’re left with a glowy feel that won’t slip. There are also 12 shades to choose from. No discrimination !
5. Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation
A fantastic option for people with oily, acne-prone skin, this oil control that won't make your skin dehydrated and dry, (which is seriously the worse, isn't it?) your best option is Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation. It has a fluid-like consistency and a buildable coverage you can work with.
Although it has oil-absorbers, it will still leave your skin looking healthy. I'm down with that!
6. Clinique Stay-Matte Oil-Free Makeup
Clinique foundation is another crowd favourite.
It’s not over the top, it’s not too thick and, importantly, it feels light on the skin thanks to its gel-like formula!
With a matte finish, any excess oil over the T-zone is put to rest.
It’s also excellent for covering dark circles and with 17 shades, there’s one for every skin color. 😉
With these effective foundations created to mask imperfections and confidence-damaging blemishes, whilst also attacking oily patches, you will barely make touch-ups all day, and of course, a shiny face will be the least of your worries.
