Choosing a foundation for oily skin can often be a gruelling task of trial and error, with various powders, foundations and even BB creams on the market, to find the perfect amount of coverage, sans shine.

Oily/combination skin can be difficult to tame if your skin routine isn’t on point, or you aren’t using the correct tools to apply the make up. We have tried and tested three great foundations that are sure to work wonders on your skin, and keep it looking matte throughout the day or night.

1. ModelCo BB Plus Cream $19.95

This multipurpose BB Cream is lighter on the skin, and but still includes many benefits packed into one amazing product. It combines a serum, sunscreen, moisturiser, primer and foundation into one easy to apply formula to erase dulness, red spots and keeps the skin looking rejuvenated. Apply with a foundation brush to achieve a flawless glow, or also set with powder to achieve a matte finish.

2. Revlon ColourStay MakeUp for Combination to Oily Skin $34.95

A long-wearing foundation available in many different shades to suit your skin tone, Revlon ColourStay sets onto the skin immediately when used with a stippling brush. The formula is a medium to high coverage foundation, which will hide any imperfections or problem areas, without clogging your pores. Available in a pump to use with ease, a worthy addition to your makeup routine.

3. Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place Makeup SPF10 $50

The perfect buildable foundation to combat any problem areas including redness and scarring, while lasting all day long minus a touch up. Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation isn’t drying on the skin, doesn’t clog pores or interfere with your skincare routine, but rather sets into the skin nicely without looking cakey. Use in conjunction with a primer to create a flawless base with a semi matte glow.
