Having a really oily skin with large pores, I used to stay away from makeup products during my college days.It was just when I started working, I began my makeup journey. With tons of makeup products available finding the Best makeup products for oily skin was the challenge. It took some time to find the product that best suited my skin type. Started with some basic makeup, right now the addition never ends. 😛
Let me take you through some of my makeup products that have been my holy grail ever since.
Makeup foundation for oily skin- Maybelline New York fit me matte & poreless foundation is my go to daily makeup foundation. It is retailed for 549 rs at stores in India. Well, you can check on Nykaa to get it at much better price or offers. It is oil free and water based makeup foundation and therefore gives a oil free, matte finish look. It mattifies and refines pores. Talking about the coverage, it sorta gives medium coverage, you can still build on if you want full coverage. Earlier, the packaging was the drawback as there was no pumping mechanism, but the new bottle comes with a pumping cap on. For me, this is the best affordable foundation for oily skin with large pores available in India.
Compact / Powder for oily skin with large pores- Maybelline New York fit me matte & poreless powder is my next favorite. Love how it gives the perfect natural poreless- looking finish. It controls shine and last for about 10-12 hours.
Neutrogena UltraSheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 50+- I used to skip sun blocks for a really long time, thinking it will make my skin feel heavy and oilier. But skipping sunblock only made it worst. I chose Neutrogena UltraSheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 50+ because it doesn’t feel heavy on skin, gives a dry matte finish and is non-comedogenic (which means, this product does’t clog pores) Just dab a small amount after you are done moisturizing your face. It is priced for 199 rs / 30 ml.
Makeup setting spray for oily skin- In fact setting spray is an ideal choice for all skin type especially when you have heavy makeup on. It helps to tie together the whole makeup and prevents it from melting or fading.It’s very common to see eyeshadow creasing or foundation settling annoyingly around nose and eyes areas. Blotting you face will only lead to losing more product so, this is where a makeup setting spray helps. However I prefer setting sprays mostly for parties or times when I have to be out for long hours with makeup on. M.A.C Prep + Prime Fix+ is what I have been using. It works good, but it’s on a higher price range- 1800 rs. You can check on Nykaa for more affordable makeup setting spray. CLICK HERE
