Best Foundations and Concealers for Oily Skin
Greeshu says Hi, “I m from Ahmedabad. I came across your blog recently and love your DIY’s n makeup reviews. I need a favor from you. I almost have facial complexion same as yours. Also i have a very oily and acne prone skin. Can you do a review on best suited concealer and foundation. I tried Lakme absolute concealer and foundation but m not satisfied with the concealer, and the foundation that comes like a ball shape is still good. I get really bad sweaty and it looks too oily and i need to do touchups every now and then. And my snaps too looks oily. Really in need of help.
1. Mac Match Master Foundation:
The shade for you is 4.0. It works well on my oily skin. Looks natural and safe to use during the day. But a little expensive. Price in India Rs.2100.
2. Revlon Colorstay Foundation for Oily Skin:
3. Mac Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation:
It gives a matte finish with medium to heavy coverage. You can always touch up easily using the applicator that comes with it on a go. The best part is it never looks cakey or made up.
4. L’Oreal Paris Matte Morphose Foundation:
Its a mousse foundation with a super matte finish. Being matte you would think it would crack or accentuate dry patches but noooo it never does that! And it just stays on and on without melting or budging.
And now its time to talk of the concealers that work on my oily skin. Its better to use stick concealers since creamy and liquid concealers suit oily dry skin more.
Its one of the best drugstore concealers. Works well for spot and under-eye concealing both. Gives medium coverage and comes in 3 shades. Follow the link to see how it looks on me.
Not the best concealer but very inexpensive. It gives super matte finish and I use it as an eye and lip primer too! Follow the link for my review and swatches.
Well so it doesn’t stay for 16hrs but it does stay good upto 10hrs or so. The coverage is pretty good and you get matte finish. For shade recommendation and how it looks on me just follow the link.
4. Revlon Photo Ready concealer:
I’ve not used it myself but heard some good things about it. It brightens up the under eye area and gives matte finish and medium coverage.
Other than that use blotting tissues to take off the extra oil very few hours. I recommend The Body Shop Oil Blotting Sheets. People if you have any suggestions than let us know in the comments below!
