Oily Skin Foundations Tested

There is one major problem when it comes to matte foundation: Do you compromise coverage for a lighter texture? Or lasting power for comfort? Because you’re certainly not allowed to have comfort and coverage…or are you? Turns out, you can have it all — if you pick the right formula.

We asked three professional makeup artists and a host of beauty members to share their top picks for oily skin — and the formulas they’re sharing are killer, no matter your budget or coverage needs. Ahead, a slew of drugstore and prestige finds that will make your makeup flawless all summer long.

Estèe Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Makeup

Makeup artist Katie Jane Hughes is a self-proclaimed “glowy-skin connoisseur,” so it may come as a surprise that this Estée Lauder matte foundation is one of her favourite bases. Instead of going in straight with a heavy dose of foundation, Hughes like to layer it over rich moisturisers, applying the formula in layers with a duo-fibre brush. “If you do this, it won’t dry down as matte and will slightly sheer out the formula,” she says.Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup, $, available at LookFantastic


NYX Total Control Drop Foundation

These mattifying drops can be worn solo or mixed with your favourite foundation or moisturiser for an extra boost of coverage.NYX Professional Makeup Total Control Pro Drop Controllable Coverage Foundation, $, available at Boots

Chantecaille Future Skin Oil Free Gel Foundation

This one is a bit of a splurge, we admit, but Stern loves it for her clients with oil-prone complexions. The gel formula ensures breathable coverage and a smooth texture. “Chantecaille has been my first choice in foundation for almost 15 years,” she says.Chantecaille Future Skin Foundation, $, available at Space NK


Revlon Color Stay Makeup for Combo/Oil Skin

For a cheaper option, Stern likes Revlon’s Color Stay formula. It’s ideal for combination, oily, and even acne-prone skin when you want full coverage that won’t budge.Revlon ColorStay Make-Up Foundation for Combination/Oily Skin, $, available at LookFantastic

L’Oreal Infallible Matte Foundation

Find yourself blotting and powdering several times per day? Try this formula, which Greenberg recommends for really oily skin. “I hate to say it, but sometimes too matte accentuates issues,” she says, noting that this one helps to prevent oil, without turning your skin into a desert.L’Oreal Paris L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte, $, available at Superdrug

Catrice All Matt Plus Shine Control Make Up

Greenberg calls this matte foundation the “training bra of foundations,” because of its light coverage and ease of application.Catrice All Matt Plus Shine Control Foundation, $, available at Just My Look

KVD Vegan Beauty Lock-It Foundation

Makeup artist David Razzano is a pro national artist at Sephora, which means he is one of the makeup artists behind the gorg looks you see in the store’s ads and social channels. Translation: He knows his way around the merchandise. He raves about this foundation because of its dreamy matte finish and waterproof texture, which will survive oil inducing-heat and a dip in the pool.KVD Beauty Lock-It Liquid Foundation, $, available at Boots

Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation

“The Amazonian clay in this formula is an amazing oil-controlling ingredient,” Razzano says. “It is gentle on skin and gives great coverage.”Tarte Cosmetics Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation with Brush, $, available at QVC UK

Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation

Some mattifying foundations feel heavy once on, but this one from Hourglass is a liquid-to-powder formula that’s full coverage, but feels light. What’s more, Razzano says it’s his go-to for blemish-prone skin.Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation, $, available at Cult Beauty
