If you have oily skin, then you know just how tricky it can be to cover it up with foundation. Why is it that your complexion always starts to look greasy come midday? Well, it could be time to look for a new foundation—particularly one with a matte (a.k.a. non-shiny) finish. Here, we’re sharing our best foundation pick for oily skin along with tips for applying it.
Have you searched high and low for the best foundation for oily skin with no luck? Well, we’ve got good news! The L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation could be the foundation you’ve been searching for all along if you have oily skin. It’s oil-free, long-lasting, and has an air-light texture and demi-matte finish.
Finding the best foundation for oily skin is only half the battle—you’ve got to know how to apply it, too. Here, follow our step-by-step skin care and makeup routine for oily skin, which includes using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation.
Step 1: Complete your regular skin care routine. Before you can move onto your makeup routine, cleansing, moisturizing, and masking is a must. Just as we told you to choose a matte finish foundation if you have oily skin, consider using mattifying skin care products. Here are three to add to your skin care regimen if you have oily skin.
L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Cleanser: This cleanser is formulated to seamlessly transform from clay to mousse and remove everyday impurities from the surface of your skin without over-drying. Immediately, skin is purified of dirt, oil, and pollution and left with a clean, clear look and a matte finish. Once a day, squeeze the cleanser into your hands and add water to transform it from clay to mousse. Gently massage the cleanser onto your face using circular motions, then rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry.
L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Oily Skin: Yes, you still need to use moisturizer on oily skin! This water-based one is formulated with hyaluronic acid and aloe vera water to help provide long-lasting hydration along with a matte finish. Smooth it over your face and neck after cleansing.
L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Mask: Day after day, impurities, dirt, makeup, and excess oils can build up on the surface of your skin, leaving your complexion looking overly oily. This clay mask helps draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and oils and reduce the look of excess shine. Apply an even layer to clean, dry skin, leave it on for 10-15 minutes, then rinse off with lukewarm water. Use three times a week for best results.
Step 2: Apply primer. Once you’re done with your skin care routine, it’s still not time to apply foundation just yet. Before that, use a primer to help create a smooth base for your makeup application. The L’Oréal Paris Studio Secrets™ Professional Magic Perfecting Base has a silky, lightweight formula that glides onto skin with a matte finish. Apply it all over your face or to targeted areas, such as an oily-looking T-zone.
Step 3: Reach for your foundation. After priming your skin, squeeze some of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation onto the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender and gently blend it onto your face, working from the center out.
Step 4: Conceal any imperfections. The next step in your makeup routine for oily skin? Concealer! All you have to do is dot some of the concealer from the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Concealing and Contour Kit wherever you’d like on your face using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Concealer Blender to blend it all out for a seamless-looking finish.
Step 5: Touch up with powder. For quick touch-ups on the go, toss the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Powder into your purse. It has a matte finish and is available in eight shades.
