The Foundations That I Use For My Oily Skin

If you follow me on social media, you’ll see me complaining about having oily skin. Girl, the struggle is VERY REAL. You know those times when you have to be running to the washroom to put on blotting powder because your skin looks so oily? Yeah girl, it’s not fun.


I used to get so oily, to the point where I felt like not wearing makeup at all, but alas, I did my research and found some solutions. The Key to finding the right foundation for your oily skin, is the formula. One thing that I’ve found, that works, is that it’s good to stick to foundations that are matte and oil free. You can’t use products that are oily to get rid of oil. I know some people like to use those foundations that make them look all glowed up but since I have oily skin I can’t glow up, ya know what I’m sayyinnnnng?

Here are some foundations that I use for my oily skin

1 Mac Pro Long wear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation

When I wear this foundation, it lasts all day, I don’t have to do any touch ups. The only thing I don’t like, is that they don’t have my shade. This shade is darker than my skin tone. It costs about $41 on

2 Loreal Infallible Pro- Matte 24 Hour FoundationProcessed with VSCO with kk1 preset

I start work at 9am and this lasts till 5pm, when I’m done. It’s very matte. It’s also affordable on my pockets for just $15 on amazon or in your local Shoppers drug mart. Here’s a link to buy it on amazon LorealFoundation

3 Maybelline New York Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation

This foundation is really cheap and really matte. It costs about $8 at Shoppers Drug mart. Every time I wear this, people always tell me “Wow, your makeup looks so good”. It does really make me look like I have on makeup and it’s not heavy. My only issue with this, They don’t have my shade. I know, sucks right?. When I use this, I have to mix the lighter shade with a darker one. Exhausting, I know.

This formula is everything. It’s matte but it’s soft matte, meaning it’s not as dry as the others. People tell me all the time that my makeup looks good and natural when I have this on. Plus, they have my shade! I don’t have to mix anything, all I have to do is just put it on and go. This foundation makes my life so much easier. Rihanna, you did your thing girl!!!
