The best powder foundation for oily skin will keep your skin looking fresh throughout the day. Many young women are plagued with oily skin and finding the best products to help your skin look its best can be a challenge. If you struggle with oily skin, you may be jealous of your friends who seem to have effortlessly perfect skin.  Chances are, her look isn’t as effortless as you think.

The important thing to remember when choosing the best powder foundation for oily skin is that you don’t want to end up looking like you’re wearing a mask.  You want your skin to look naturally perfect. If your skin is oily, use an oil free liquid or a powder foundation.  Powders that absorb oil will leave you with a matt, smooth finish.  The dry particles will help absorb moisture.

If you struggle with oil only in your t-zone, apply the powder strategically where you need it and less where you don’t.   A loose perfecting powder like mark Set Things Right (SRP $12) will allow you to do this where a liquid or stick foundation won’t.  Make sure to choose the shade that is right for you and use a puff or brush to apply lightly.

  5. I do have an oily T zone! I should test this out. Thanks!

  6. I would love to test this product. It’s really quite hard to find a good foundation especially for those oily T zones.

  7. Cheap Is The *New* Classy says

    I have oily skin and this has ALWAYS been a problem for me – finding good makeup that stays in place!


  8. You read my mind! I was thinking about purchasing and trying out this product with my next mark order.

  9. I Use Revlon Colorstay for Combo/Oily Skin because it Gives Me The Most Flawless and Full Coverage Look, but I Honestly don’t wear it everyday. I am more of a Tinted Moisturizer or BB Cream Kind of Girl on a Regular Basis. I’ve Tried Powder and Mineral Foundations and they Truly are NOT for Me because although I have Oily skin it’s also Sensitive so the one’s I’ve tried so far just don’t work!

  10. I have an oily tzone but dry everywhere else. It is challenging to find the right products!
