During the summer months when we engage in outdoor, sweat-inducing activities and humidity is at an all-time high, those with naturally oil-prone skin will probably experience an increase in shininess. To decrease the grease (we’re coining that term!), a powder should always be used in addition to your normal makeup routine. As with foundation and moisturizer, there are many different powder options to choose from. For great results, select the best product for your skin type. Here are the 3 best powders for oily skin:
For sheer or light coverage, a translucent power is your best bet. There are countless options when it comes to translucent powder, but one of the best formulas for correcting oily skin has to be the Super Matte Loose Powder by Makeup For Ever.
For medium coverage, a compact powder will work better than a loose powder. Plus, it requires less applications throughout the day. Stay Matte Sheer Pressed Powder by Clinique is available in fifteen different shades to fit a wide range of skin tones and is formulated with ingredients that naturally absorb oil.
It can be tricky to find a powder that provides full coverage. Remember to stay away from formulas that are made with oil, which is a typical ingredient used to create a thicker, heavier application. Even with the oil-free options, it’s always a good idea to test the product on your skin. Many of the full-coverage powders made for oily skin can cause dryness and create even more oil. From experience, I’ve found that Cover FX Pressed Mineral Foundation is a great option. It’s available in twenty-four different shades and is completely vegan.
