My Top 5 Foundations for Oily Skin

MakeupbyBia
Here are my top 5 foundations for oily/combination/acne prone skin! These are by no means my only favorite foundations, just the ones I keep going back to. 1. ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation
This matte, oil-free foundation controls oil all day. It’s sweat, heat and humidity-resistant, waterproof and 24-hour colour true. With buildable, medium-to-full coverage that feels lightweight and so comfortable. No touchups needed. Best for hot weather/ holidays. The only Downside is that it doesn’t come with a pump 2. MAYBELLINE - Fit Me! Matte & Poreless Foundation
This foundation is a must have if you are looking for a good drugstore option for oily skin. It’s super affordable and gives a beautiful finish without feeling heavy on the skin. 3. HUDA BEAUTY - Fauxfilter Foundation
is perfect for you if you are looking for full coverage. Just a couple of pumps go a long way. However, the formula isn’t ideal for anyone with dry skin or for people sensitive to string fragrances. 4. L'ORÉAL - Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Longwear Foundation
This formula blends unbelievably well and you can build this to completely full coverage! ! I'm beyond impressed for this being drugstore. 5. The Ordinary - Colours Coverage Foundation with SPF 15
this is my everyday foundation and gives good enough coverage. I just have to mix two different shades to get my color as the range is quiet limited but for the price I pay, I don’t mind. Always stay away form words like “dewy”, “luminous”, “shiny” , “glowy” if you have oily skin. Let me know if you have any questions.

Why Buy Tinted Moisturizer When You Can Make It?
Between an oil-based cleanser, water-based cleanser, acid exfoliant, retinoid, sunscreen, and moisturizer, the idea of investing in tinted moisturizer isn’t enticing. Especially when I already open both a moisturizer and foundation! So why not make my own tinted moisturizer? The Ordinary sent me a variety of their newly released foundations to try and while I love their Serum Foundation, the fuller coverage version wasn’t a fit for my sheer preference: perfect for repurposing! Step 1: Scoop out a dollop of your daily moisturizer. You don’t need much, about a dime or nickel size is usually more than enough for me when I use the spreadable and lightweight (but deeply hydrating) NATURIUM - Niacinamide Gel Cream 5% . Step 2: Dispense drop(s) of foundation onto moisturizer in palm. The amount used will vary depending on your coverage preference and the pigmentation of your foundation, but 1-2 drops is my sweet spot. I used a half-pump of The Ordinary - Colours Coverage Foundation with SPF 15 for the demonstration, to show how easy it is to get a rich pigment with a moisturizer! Step 3: Mix them together. I use a fingertip to mix them, being sure to carefully blend the products thoroughly so that there isn’t any patchiness. Step 4: Pat on your DIY tinted moisturizer! I find patting reduces the likelihood of pilling- some moisturizers may play better with some foundations, depending on a variety of factors like thickness and base (silicone, oil, water). #CheriePartner

Smokey Eyes attempt with Estee Lauder
Hi! It’s been a while since i posted but today I’m back with another make up attempt using Estee Lauder 48 Shades 6 Looks To Envy Palette! I’m only after one look though, lol. And the look im after is the Smokey Eyes with Dark Red Lips! This palette has everything (literally); Estee Lauder’s 30 Best-Selling Pure Color Envy EyeShadows, 12 Pure Color Envy Lip Colors to 6 Pure Color Envy Blushes (4 blushes, a bronzer and a highlighter). See? I did not lie. It has EVERYTHING. Everything that’s on my face is coming from this palette! Except complexion of course. For complexion im using Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place Makeup, Maybelline Fit Me Concealer and Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Powder. And i top it off with Urban Decay All Nighter Long Lasting Make Up Setting Spray and im good to go! If you have really oily skin like me, youll love this. Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place Makeup featuring Laura Mercier Loose Powder AND Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray is a literal WOMBO COMBO. I guarantee you your make up will stay on ALL DAY. It’ll cover all ur pores and imperfections and it also leaves you a really smooth, matte (but not too dry) result. Hope this helps! ESTĒE LAUDER - Limited Edition Pure Color Envy Paint-On Liquid LipColor Set ESTĒE LAUDER - Pure Color Envy Sculpting EyeShadow 5-Color Palette ESTĒE LAUDER - Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation laura mercier - Translucent Loose Setting Powder URBAN DECAY - All Nighter Long Lasting Setting Spray Jumbo & Travel Duo

Foundation Dupes, high end & its drugstore match
ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation is such an INCREDIBLE FOUNDATION, I would use this forever but at $52.00, i refuse to do so. Its drugstore dupe in my opinion is REVLON - Colorstay Full Cover Foundation its a close one although on the heavier side- as long as you know how to properly apply foundation you shouldnt be worried. And if you want good coverage to hide blemishes, this product is great! . NARS - All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation $60 for a foundation? i will pass! Love NARS as much as anyone else but thats way too much! The drugstore dupe for Nars foundation, to me at least is L'ORÉAL - Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Longwear Foundation and its $12.99 currently at ulta but ive seen it on amazon for $10 and i have no complaints- great coverage!!!

Soft Glam Valentine’s Day Look ❣️❤️ ✨
Hey Cherie Fam 🍒 Happy Saturday! I finally used my Nudie No.2 Palette from Laura Lee Los Angeles today to create a more wearable look for Valentine’s Day. The last 2 looks I did were a bright pink and a pastel pink. I know those looks are not everyone’s cup of tea so I created a soft glam look. I am beyond impressed with this palette. The shades in the pan are actually more pigmented when applied to the lids. The mattes pretty much blend themselves and shimmers are beautiful. The quality is there and I personally like the color story of this palette way more than the OG Nudie Patootie palette. To achieve this eye look, I used • Bum all over the crease using a fluffy brush • Low-Cut right under the bum shade. I used a smaller detailing brush • Risqué on the outer corner. I packed it first then blended it • I used NYX glitter primer then applied Skimpy all over the lids. Then cheeky on top of that. NYX - Glitter Primer • Sheer on the inner corner • For the lower lash line I used bum, low cut and risque. • NYX retractable white eyeliner to tight line. This will make your eyes appear larger NYX - NYX Retractable Eyeliner • Soft wing eyeliner, mascara and lashes. I used House of Lashes in Au Naturale HOUSE of LASHES - HOUSE of LASHES Au Naturale If you’re curious what is the rest on my face, check out my IG! @ Francescadflower I hope you all have a great Valentine’s Day! Doesn’t matter if you’re single or taken 💕 Xoxo, Francesca 💋

The Velvet Palette 🎀 // BoxyCharm Jan Base Box
Hi Cherie Fam! 🍒 I finally tried the products I received in my Boxycharm January base box today. For this look, I used: 🎀ciaté - Velvet Palette 🎀LAURA GELLER - Hi-Def Glow Illuminator Duoin Heart of Gold 🎀#Bali Balm - Sweet Orange and Coconut Balm[products]#to prep my lips I love the compact size of the Ciate London Velvet Palette. It expected it to be bigger, but i don’t need another huge palette. The shadows here are very pigmented, buttery and easy to work with. I love the texture of it. It is so soft and the little shadow print is aesthetically pleasing and pleasant to look at. I created this sunset-y look. It’s a nice warm/neutral palette. The palette also contains pink and rose shimmers so it’s versatile. My only complaint is there isn’t a deep brown shade so this is the deepest this look could get, it might be troublesome for those with dark to deep skin tones. Also there’s a a lot of fall out so I suggest doing your eyes first. The Laura Geller heart of gold highlighter is very subtle which is perfect for daily use. I think I will use this more often in the summer time. So far I am happy with my January base box this year, I can’t wait to get my Feb base box. I chose the brow bar as my choice. Xoxo, Francesca 💋

OLD FAVES: DRUGSTORE FOUNDATIONS ✨
This one will be a little shorter because it will just be ratings! My preferred method of application is with a beauty sponge, here's the list of tools & primers I use! - e.l.f. - Total Face Sponge - e.l.f. - Poreless Putty Primer - MILANI - Prime Protect SPF 30 Face Primer - ACURE - Seriously Soothing Blue Tansy Night Oil - MILANI - Make It Last Prime + Correct + Set Setting Spray (Check out my everyday makeup routine to see a full base tutorial!) Let's get into these ratings! MAYBELLINE - Fit Me! Matte & Poreless Foundation - this is one of my holy grail foundations! i like their shade range so i can account for both my summer and winter shades. i always end up going back to this one! i just WISH the glass packaging had a pump or we could just make the tube worldwide. MILANI - Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer - let me preface by saying: it's THICK. full coverage to the max, almost a mousse texture. i go for this when i know i'll be having a long night with my makeup. definitely not an everyday formula. wet n wild - Photofocus Liquid Matte Foundation - another one of my go-to's, this is the original finish which is more satin/natural at least on myself! i like the spatula applicator on this one it's way less messy. definitely a more watery, smooth formula. CATRICE COSMETICS - HD Liquid Coverage Foundation - abysmal shade range, was okay but didn't really make a difference. i used this as a mixer for a long time, it comes in a dropper like serum so I could use it to lighten other foundations. other than that it was nothing to write home about. PHYSICIANS FORMULA - The Healthy Foundation SPF 20 - the packaging on this one actually broke on me but just the top lid part, probably user error. it comes with a large doe foot applicator, it has an interesting smell i will say that. otherwise i like how they do their shade matching by undertones & they keep their chart available and easy to understand! i like the finish, it would dry down slightly cakey but after a few mins + setting spray it would melt down into the skin beautifully! Remember to always give your foundations a full test run! Of course unless you experience irritation or incorrect color match. Some foundations do have a learning curve, for example there are certain foundations that apply better with a brush I have no idea why but it just works that way sometimes. If there are issues, try to check what products you're using that may not be a good pair with your foundation! Every foundation has a different finish so it's important to be aware of that when you're going into your make up routine. Thanks for reading. ❤️ #cheriecreator #cheriepartner

Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation
Hey gals This Maybelline Fit Me Matte+Poreless Foundation Is my all time favorite! My holigrail for life!! I know it sounds like I’m exaggerating but seriously guys this foundation is the only one that I use. I tried to use high end foundations but every time I go to Sephora the workers there match me wrong, the lighting is super off in the store so they always end up matching me with a super dark orange foundation. Also some of the foundation that I get don’t really work for my skin so I always ended up going back to this foundation and I’ve been purchasing this foundation back to back since the beginning of 2019. It gives me the most natural finish. I know it claims is matte but for me is more like satin finish and even after I use a Poreless primer. This foundation gives me the finish I want. my skin always looks silky smooth when I wear this foundation. I always get asked at work which foundation I use and when I tell them is The Maybelline Fit me M&P foundation they definitely are surprised by my response. They also have a great foundation range Which I’m glad because some companies lack shade range. Let me know if you gals have used this foundation and if you like it ? 💕 MAYBELLINE - Fit Me! Matte & Poreless Foundation

👏 Amazing foundations for Oily Skin! 👏
👏 Amazing foundations for Oily Skin! 👏
These are my absolutely go to foundations for my oily skin from the drugstore. They vary in finish and coverage so I’ll break it down below. 1. wet n wild - Photofocus Liquid Matte Foundation this foundation is a great option if you want a break from the traditional matte foundation oily girls/ guys typically go for. Of course, stay away from this in the summer months and apply a mattifying primer to extend wear. The coverage is a medium but can be easily built. It doesn’t have a pump, but rather a strange plastic applicator. I don’t use it because I don’t find it the most sanitary. There’s a great variety of shades for a drugstore option! $8 at Walmart. ☺️ 2. MAYBELLINE - Fit Me Matte + Poreless Liquid Foundation another great option at the drugstore, with a matte finish. This foundation is only $6 at Walmart and it’s comparable to high end products! It wears beautifully and provides a medium coverage and doesn’t look cakey at all. It’s matte but not dry which is key! My only issue is that packaging in Canada/ US is the glass bottle without a pump. 3. L'ORÉAL - Infallible Fresh Wear 24HR Foundation this is a great great option if you’re looking for a soft natural finish! A great medium between a dewy and matte foundation. Again, I wouldn’t wear this when it’s exceptionally warm and humid but it’s amazing for the winter months when my skin is more combo than oily! As always, I prep my skin well and set as necessary (powder+ spray). There’s a good option of shades. The only thing is, there is a smell to the foundation that may not be for everyone.

I have a lot of dark acne scars so when my friends told me about how smashbox’s foundation is super full coverage I was really excited. However after color concealing, and then putting on this foundation, I realized I still had to apply a LOT. My goal in buying this foundation was to get maximum coverage with minimal foundation so I won’t look caked and makeup-y. I prefer Colorfix for full coverage.

I've tried all of them and found this one suit me best!
I've tried all of them and found this one suit me best!
My skin type: Combination-oily, acne-prone with enlarged pores 🙃Here is my review of the products I've tried to prepare the make-up base:  💖 smashbox - Photo Finish Reduce Redness Primer  I bought a travel-size version of this at Sephora. It is really easy to blend, and it feels like a protective layer on my skin, making it look matte. It is also excellent at concealing pores, and is suitable for summer use for those with oily skin.  💖benefit - The POREfessional Face Primer  I have large pores so I'll cover them using this on my nose and acne scars after applying primer. I find it does the job quite well. 💖 MAKE UP FOR EVER - Full Cover Concealer  Highly recommended for girls with more serious facial blemishes!! It can either be applied to the entire face or just at spots you want to cover and a little of it can go a long way. It is a little dry, but that's not a big issue problem since you still need to apply foundation afterward. 💖 LANCÔME - Teint Idole Ultra Long Wear Foundation It's a better than average concealer. Dab drops of it on your face then press it with a beauty blender (wet it then dry it off so that it's not too wet). It looks natural on my face and it doesn't get oily even after a couple of hours. The foundation contains rose essence, so it's very moisturizing. 💖 CHANEL - Le Teint Ultra Tenue Ultrawear Flawless Compact Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Sunscreen I use this occasionally for finishing touches and my skin becomes less oily after using it.

Too Faced Born this way Foundation
Too Faced Born this way Foundation
✨What are the claims? A oil free foundation that masterfully diffuses the line between makeup & skin with coverage so un-detectable, you’ll think you were born this way. It is a medium-full coverage natural finish foundation that is perfect for all skin types. It is hydrating, long wearing, non-comedogenic, AND doesnt cause flashback! ✨Key Ingredients: coconut water; aids in delicately replenishing skins moisture levels. Alpine rose: helps support skins health & resilience. Hyaluronic acid: gives a smoother appearance & draws in moisture up to 1,000 times its weight. ✨Texture/Consistency? It is a medium consistency liquid foundation that is easily spreadable & blendable. ✨My thoughts? This is my third or fourth time purchasing this bottle! I absolutely love this formula! My skin is very dry & pale and this doesn’t look fairy or dry on my skin & matches my skin tone perfectly! It is in the shade Snow, and I use this every day when I know I need a full coverage foundation that isn’t dewy and is more on the matte side. I wouldn’t say necessarily this is matte but more of a smooth, natural finish with no shine in it! It stays put on my face and covers all of my acne scars. It doesn’t crease or get oily on me, and it’s looks bomb with any concealer or powder I’ve used. I’ve truly never had an issue with this and when they launched more shades a year or two ago I finally found my favorite shade & became even more obsessed! Now I never go without this foundation. Defiantly a must when it comes to My glam routine. I would totally recommend! ✨Price Vs Size? It is $39.00 for 1oz and i think that’s pretty standard when it comes to high end foundations! It is worth it because it works, it lasts, and this bottle lasts me several months! I personally like the glass frosted packaging as well. Too Faced - Born This Way Natural Finish Foundation

I have been using this foundation forever. I don’t even try new ones because nothing has ever beat the price and the quality of this product for me! I have acne prone, SUPER OILY skin, so this is the only foundation I ever use to combat some of my oil. Plus I have hyperpigmentation and this leaves such a beautiful soft matte, healthy finish and medium coverage on the skin😍 I use it for my everyday look and even when I go out and I’m wearing more makeup. It works for everything. It lasts all day and keeps the coverage even on my oily skin. Honestly even when I touch up on my nose during the day, it still doesn’t look cakey and nasty but still beautiful. Plus half the time I don’t use primer so it’s just this foundation that is magic 💓 They also extended their shade range and I’m such an odd shade of neutral but I found my perfect match in this foundation and I’ve gotten tons of my friends obsessed with their formula! It’s genius Swipe 👉🏽 to see my everyday makeup look 🥳 L'ORÉAL - Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Longwear Foundation

This is a very good option for oily skin type it gives you a matte finish which i love. It is lightweight and creamy, goes on smooth and lasts all day — hiding imperfections. It can be found at any drugstore and is cheap. It will give you a full coverage but without feeling you have too much makeup on so you will look very natural, i’d say is as good or better than those products with really high prices, i’ve been using it for almost 2 years and im in love❤️ L'ORÉAL - Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Longwear Foundation
