My biggest issue with foundation that can endure oily skin is that most of them look like So. Much. Makeup. In all of my product trial and error I would find foundations that would stay looking more matte, but then I looked like a floating head of foundation. Not my fave.
I am still on the hunt for the perfect foundation, but til then, this ones pretty good
-Best for t-zone oily, or oily OR if you want a long-ish wear
-What I like about it—it dries and sets
-After several hours I get a little bit “radiant” but it’s tolerable. Not super flat matte, but not greaseball.
Things to note:
-Limited color options so I often have to mix them to get a match (I’m a 3 mixed with a 3.5 sometimes 4)
-I have to wash my foundation brush more often because the foundation stiffens in it.
-For the first few hrs I feel a tiny bit makeup-ey. Not over the top, but like I’m wearing foundation. After about 3-4 hrs it looks more natural. Gets slightly shiny after 5-6 hrs.
-Also let’s not forget about blotting sheets (why do I go through phases of remembering these handy things exist!?)
Since it dries and sets, apply it in sections on your face, like the lower right side, then the lower left side, then the upper right, then upper left.
What are your favorite foundations?
