Our best makeup for oily and combination skin
As anyone with oily skin would know, sometimes it’s important to use makeup that’s specially designed for your skin type. Applying makeup over a shiny complexion can be tricky, and some oil-based products can actually make things worse. But don’t worry – with a little knowledge of how makeup impacts oily skin, you can choose the right products and routine to ensure long-lasting coverage.
Remember that before applying any specialised oily skin makeup, the right skincare routine is essential to combat your body’s natural oil production. Minimise the products you use and remember to always cleanse and exfoliate to keep oil at bay. A gel-based moisturiser is a good solution for hydration without adding to the problem.
Once you’ve got your skincare down, you can find the right oily skin makeup that will have you looking your best. Keep reading to find the best products for your skin type, from foundation for oily skin to the best setting powders.
Finding out your skin type
Before you go down the path of finding the right products for oily skin, you should first analyse your skin type. You might in fact have combination skin, or if you have any sensitivities, these should also be taken into account.
To learn more about your skin type, try out Skin Genius, an analysis tool developed by L’Oréal Research with the support of years of research from dermatologists. Although this can’t recreate a live consultation, the results are up to 95% accurate compared to a real dermatologist consultation. All you need to do is upload a photograph and wait for the results.
Once you know a bit more about your skin, you can approach both skincare and makeup armed with the right knowledge.
Primer for oily skin
Your makeup routine should begin with the right primer for oily skin. Most people with oily skin find that natural oils build up throughout the day, and makeup meltdowns are not uncommon. A face primer helps to prevent these situations, and the L'Oréal Paris Prime Labs 24HR Matte Setter Primer is the perfect choice for those with oily skin.
Simply apply before your foundation to create a smooth, long-lasting look that both covers imperfections and fights off oil. This primer has a matte finish that reduces the appearance of oily skin.
Concealer for oily skin
After your primer, it’s time to consider the best concealer for oily skin. It’s not just primer that can help your makeup last for longer, a concealer is also a great way to prime your eyes for eyeshadow.
If you have oily skin, give the Infallible More Than Concealer a try. The ultra-blendable formula is designed for long-lasting wear, concealing imperfections and providing a matte finish.
Foundation for oily skin
For any makeup look, the right foundation is essential to creating a radiant and smooth appearance, free from imperfections. Meet the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 32H Fresh Wear foundation, the perfect companion for those with oily skin.
This foundation for oily skin is formulated with SPF to provide you with all-important protection from the sun, and is waterproof to give long-lasting coverage. But don’t fear – the innovative oxygen technology gives a lightweight feel, despite the long-lasting performance.
Mascara for oily/combination skin
Just like other kinds of makeup, mascara can run and wear off easily for those with oily skin. Choosing the right mascara can help prevent these situations, leaving you looking fabulous throughout the day without needing to re-apply.
Launching in January 2023, the new Telescopic Lift Mascara has been cleverly formulated for long-lasting volume and curl. A double bristle brush helps to coat lashes individually, giving them both lift and a 25-degree curl effect.
Setting powder for oily skin
One of the best ways to combat shine is to choose a good setting powder for oily skin. We recommend the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Loose Setting Powder, a specially formulated product that features blue-toned light diffusing technology to give your skin a bright appearance throughout the day.
Those with oily skin will love the matte control complex, which sets make up in place and helps to keep shine at bay throughout the day. This is the perfect product to finish off your makeup look, giving you flawless coverage, whatever life throws your way.
