The 6 Best Oil-Free Foundations to Try In 2019March 29, 2019
If you’re on the hunt for an oil-free foundation, chances are you’re searching for something that’s going to keep your skin shine- and grease-free. I mean, we know you’re not shocked to find out that if you have oily, acne-prone or combination skin, you could benefit from avoiding formulas without oil entirely. But you don’t need to have the aforementioned skin types to like oil-free foundations. In fact, most people can benefit from an oil-free formula.
Ahead, check out six oil-free foundations worth trying in 2019.
A brand that’s always got us covered (quite literally) is Urban Decay. This formula blurs imperfections like your fave filter and illuminates your skin. To find your match, keep in mind that shades denoting .0 have warm undertones, .25 have neutral undertones and .5 have pink undertones.
For those of you who love to find a great deal (same), this lightweight, demi-matte formula costs just over $10 on Amazon. It comes in 22 shades and will last up to 24 hours.
Don’t let “tinted moisturizer,” fool you — this formula will give you serious coverage. It contains SPF 40 and will instantly color-correct and brighten your skin’s appearance. Keep in mind that a little goes a long way.
If long-wear is your middle name, let us introduce you to Lancôme Teint Idole Foundation, which comes in 45 shades. The formula will help you achieve a medium-to-full-coverage finish and also contains sun protection. It’s perfect for both minimalist looks and more full-coverage ones — depending on the look you’re going for.
As is the case with all different types of makeup sticks, foundation sticks lend themselves to easy, mess-free application. You can apply the foundation stick right onto your face and use your fingers to blend, or you can blend it in with a makeup sponge. This is ideal for the makeup lover who’s always on the go or looking for coverage fast.
Apply this mousse formula with your fingers or a blending sponge to achieve a blurred, matte finish. This breathable formula contains SPF 25 to protect skin from the sun’s UV rays, and it’s ideal for those with oily, combination and acne-prone skin.
