Dealing with oily skin isn’t always ideal. Especially when it comes to foundation. Finding the right kind foundation that doesn’t clog pores or leave your nose shiny by the end of the day is a challenge for sure. I’ve decided  to help you all out, as a fellow oily skin girl who better?

Here are my top 5 foundations for oily skin! In no particular order.

Giorgi Armani Luminous Silk Foundation 

For all the girls who still want a more dewy look without that oily finish. This foundation leaves a beautiful silky finish as the name suggests without making your skin overly oily. It’s super long wearing and stays all day no matter what!

Makeup Forever Ultra HD Foundation

I am in love with this foundation! It is amazing for oily skin, with totally build-able coverage and a more matte finish. This foundation is also amazing for evening out skin tones and covering up acne scars. Another insanely long wearing foundation, this baby does not budge.

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation

This is one of the best foundations I have come across for oily skin. Leaving a totally natural radiant finish while still providing all day coverage is everything I could ask for and more in a foundation.

MAC Studio Fix+

This foundation is my OG. It’s the first foundation I ever owned and I still have bottles of it in my makeup collection! While the consistency is much thicker compared to the likes of Makeup Forever and Givenchy it still packs a punch. Never failing to leave my skin looking flawless, I always get compliments when I go out wearing this!

Hourglass Vanish Seamless Stick Foundation

This foundation is a holy grail. Giving the most beautiful air brushed finish. Stick foundations are amazing for oily skin and give so insane coverage! Totally worth the money and one of the most long wearing foundations I’ve ever worn.
