One of the hardest things about having oily skin is that it’s been hard to find a foundation that works for me. I feel like with oily skin its like a vacuum that sucks up foundation. Sometimes I even feel like the foundations I’ve used end up just sitting on top of the oil on my skin and rub off on anything it touches.
It took years for me to find foundations that actually work well for me and last all day long.
After spending hundreds of dollars on different foundations I was really shocked that one of the best foundations I’ve tried was only $6. This foundations is BAE when it comes to my oily skin and it gives me the matte tint I desire. I like to get two shades of this foundation, one for summer and one for the winter months. This can be
NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint
I know this isn’t an actual foundation, but I really do love it. My good girlfriend over at The Narrow Way put me onto it earlier this year. I absolutely love how it looks on my skin and that it lasts all day. While the $45 price tag is a little bit pricey, I’ve had the bottle since March and I’m still not even half way done with it. That’s because a little goes a long way. My friend Keisha told me that the trick to making it last is to wet your beauty blender before dipping it in the skin tint! Works like a charm!!! This can be purchased at Ulta, Sephora and many other beauty counters at department stores.
I only recently got hipped to Milk Makeup. I really really like it and just like the NARS Skin Tint a little bit goes a long way. The only thing I don’t like about it is that it takes a little longer for me to blend it into my skin and I have to mix two shades in order to get it just right. This one runs about $40 and can be purchased at JC Penney and Sephora.
