The Best Full-Coverage Foundations for Oily Skin
If you're prone to oily skin, then finding a foundation can be tricky. You need something that tempers shine, doesn't slide and doesn't clog those overactive pores. You may also find that during the winter months your skin is quite normal, but the hot weather pretty much causes the entire human population's skin to go into sebum-producing overdrive. Then there is the question of finish: you either love full, practically poreless coverage or a sheer veil that allows your natural skin to show through. If you want an airbrushed look, you're in the right place.
We long for even coverage that will help mattify our oily T-zones, transform any imperfections and allow us to create that coveted airbrushed appearance—without suffocating our skin if we so desire. Sound impossible? Not quite. With oily skin types in mind, we've rounded up an epic list of full-coverage foundations that guarantee only the most flawless of finishes—no hourly touch-ups required.
