The nice thing about oily skin, despite what you might think, is that there’s a foundation formula specifically suited to every kind of complexion—and budget. The not-so-nice thing is that some are not worth your time or money, and the good ones can be tricky to find. If you’re working with skin that tends to break out and shine like a disco ball, the search for a safe, effective foundation that will keep your skin looking natural and matte without irritation can be particularly stressful.

Luckily, we have some oily-skinned girls on the Byrdie team who’ve weeded through all the affordable foundations on the market to find the ones you should definitely try. You can also check out our round-up of the best foundations here if oily ones are what you're looking for. Keep scrolling for our foundation picks that conceal and control shine for the matte (yet natural) look you’re after.
