Best Foundations for Oily Skin

Welcome back to my blog my lovelies, I don't know about you but I think I'm pretty on the ball with my blog posts lately.

Todays blog post is going to be on what I recommend would be
The Best Foundations for Oily Skin. 

Mac Prolong Wear Foundation

  • Mac Prolong Wear Foundation is long wearing foundation that lasts up to 15 hours in most environments. It has a lightweight medium coverage but buildable without feeling cakey. It controls oils to keep the skin looking fresh and flawless and it also has an SPF of 10.

My all time favourite and holy grail foundation! I get asked all the time what foundation I have on and 99% of the time its this one, I cannot explain my love for this foundation to you guys.

It really does exactly what it claims to do. It lasts all day on my skin and I never need to top up my makeup because it controls my oils and keeps me matte.

I love the lightweight feel of this foundation because I like to build my coverage up to make sure all my texture is covered and it never feels to cakey even with the mac prolong wear concealer.

This foundation can be purchase in any
- Brown Thomas or on the Brown Thomas website.
- Arnotts Department Store 
- The Mac Official Website
at €36.50

Could not recommend this foundation enough!

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation

  • Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation is a long wearing foundation with a 15 hour staying power. Medium coverage with a very matte finish and lasts under any environment also has an SPF of 10.
Love foundation especially for a night out it literally sticks to my face and does not budge at all!

I think it provides a very good medium coverage and does cover most imperfections, but certainly is not a buildable foundation as I find it leaves the skin feeling very cakey and heavy because it sticks straight on top of the skin. 

It is the most matte foundation I have ever used so is amazing for us oily skin girls.

Estee Lauder can be purchased in
- Debenhams & Online
- Brown Thomas & Online
- Boots & Online
- Estee Lauder official website
at €37

Inglot HD Perfect Coverage Foundation

  •  Inglot HD Perfect Cover-up Foundation has a long lasting coverage covering up any discolouration and imperfections because of its medium to full coverage. It provides a very natural but flawless finish and prevents excess oils from seeping through.
Inglot are probably the most raved about makeup brand in Ireland lately. When this first came out everyone was going crazy for it, me on the other hand was not fazed at all.

I ended up buying it for my makeup kit, and I tried it out one day and I was so impressed.

It dries to a matte finish and stays in place all day, I didn't have to top up my makeup at all and I love finding foundations that don't budge. It had such a good coverage too!

This foundation can be purchase in any Inglot stores or on Inglot's website at €33.

Milani Conceal + Perfect 2in1 Foundation & Concealer

  • Milani Conceal and Perfect 2in1 Foundation & Concealer has a full coverage allowing it to cover any dark circles and imperfections. It has a very good lasting power because of its oil free formula. Also water resistant and sweat proof.

I only recently purchased this foundation of beauty bay, I heard so many good things about it so yea I had to try it for myself.
It does exactly what it claims to do, it is very full coverage so a little bit does go a very long way. one layer of this foundation is enough because if you apply 2 or more layers it will feel cakey.
This foundation does last through anything, you could do a work out with this on your face and it wouldn't budge! (I wouldn't recommend wearing makeup working out though)
They have an amazing range of shades so you would definitely find the right colour for you but unfortunately for us Irish girls we can only purchase these online so we more than likely wont find our perfect shade in the first purchase!
    €15.70 on Beauty Bay, defo worth a try ladies.

NYX Stay Matte But Not Flat Liquid Foundation

  • NYX Stay Matte but Not Flat Liquid Foundation provides a medium to buildable full coverage. Gives a satin matte finish and has a good lasting power. It is also a water based and mineral enriched foundation which is great for oily skin.
This was the first product I talked about on my blog, I use to be obsessed with this foundation! Even though times have changed and my heart is with Mac prolong wear, I will always have a little something for this foundation because it was the first one I actually loved.

It has a good medium coverage and is very buildable and leaves a satin matte finish on the skin.
I think this foundation is great for everyday makeup because its so lightweight, I always felt like I had barely any makeup on when I wore this.
NYX is now stocked in all boots pharmacies and various pharmacies around Ireland. Such a good foundation for only €8!!

So there the foundations I think work great for us oily skin girls, I hope some of you found this helpful!! and had a lovely weekend.
Il be back with more blog post over real soon so keep an eye out.
Thanks for reading
