Oily skin can really mess up with the makeup. Excess oil production can lead to breaking down of the foundation and a cakey finish. However, most of the times, girls have naturally oily skin which cannot be remedied. To begin with, you shouldn’t be looking for remedies to treat oily skin because that natural shine looks good too.

To make your makeup last longer, you can invest in the right makeup products while embracing your natural skin type!

Here are the top affordable foundations for oily skin (in no particular order):

Maybelline fit me foundation (matte and pore less)

This one has a natural finish and is actually full coverage. It is very easy to blend and seems to be water based. It gives a matte finish in the beginning. However, it does wear off in a few hours. Hence it is not a long-wearing foundation. It looks just like skin!

Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse foundation

This foundation seems very lightweight on the skin. It does a decent job if it comes to blurring out the pores. It is perfect for a no makeup-makeup look because it has a light coverage. The shade range is a little narrow, but apart from that, this foundation does not cake up and move around. It will stay for good 4-5 hours!

L’Oreal infallible Pro-matte foundation

This one claims to have a 24 hour wear. Now, no one would wear makeup the entire day but, it does last for at least 10-11 hours! My skin is extremely oily but this does not move around. It does transfer a little bit but that can be solved by simply blotting the face. It covers the pores completely and is quite high coverage.

Revlon Colour stay foundation for oily-combination skin

This one is amazing for oily skin because it gives the most beautiful finish and actually prevents the oil from showing through. It is very easy to blend and has quite good coverage. It settles into a completely matte finish which will last you for about 6-7 hours. The shade range is also quite good.
