Top 5 Favourite Foundations For Oily Skin

Hi guys, one thing you will find loads of in my make up stash is foundations. I have tried so many different ones over the years to try and get the right foundation to suit my skin so i thought I would share with you my favourite ones. My skin is quite oily in the t-zone area and is also prone to breakouts so most of these foundations will apply to that.

1. Inglot HD Cover Up Foundation

This is quite a new one in my collection, I have been using this everyday in work for the past few weeks and I absolutely love it. It is a medium to full coverage foundation. I set this with my Vichy dermablend powder which is a translucent setting powder and i find this great with my oily skin.

2. Mac Studio Fix Foundation

This was a firm favourite of mine for months before i started using the Inglot HD foundation. This is a great everyday foundation as it was perfect for my oily skin and I did not need to top up my foundation at all during the day. I really don't find the shade ranges great for me personally in this foundation as NW15 is quite orange for my skin and NW13 (which i use) is okay but quite pale in comparison to my other foundations. I set this with mac studio fix powder in NW15.

3. Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation

You cannot go wrong with double wear if you love full coverage or have oily skin. I love wearing this on a night out mainly for its coverage and stays on perfectly all night. The only downside with this foundation is the ghost face it gives in pictures, because it has SPF in it, it can sometimes make your face look pale in photos. I often put a little bit of tan on my face before applying the foundation.

4. L'Oreal Infallible 24hr Matte Foundation

I originally bought this when it first came out last summer, and used it religiously every day and loved it. It is medium to full coverage foundation and gives the most amazing coverage for a drugstore foundation. I wouldn't recommend this for dry skin as it would be quite drying on the skin. There is another version of this foundation for dry skin.

5. Vichy Dermablend Corrective Foundation

I love the coverage with this camouflage foundation but i do find it gets quite oily on my t zone, but i have heard from other people with oily skin that it works for them. It covers absolutely everything and there is no need for concealer with this foundation. Another good thing about the foundation it it widely available in Pharmacies.

What are your favourite foundations?

  1. i swear by the infallible foundation, it works so well on my skin!

  2. This is especially important if a product is marked as 'suitable for all skin types', instead of 'oily skin care product'. 'oily skin care treament ' is also dependent on the degree of oiliness, Try this
