The Best Full-Coverage Foundations for Oily Skin

Updated 09/08/17

As far as foundation goes, there are seemingly two main camps: those who want full, practically poreless coverage and those who prefer the sheerer side of things—allowing their natural skin to show through. Of course, when choosing the perfect base, it’s also important to take one’s skin type into account, and for those of us who are on the oilier side of things (or basically the entire human population during the warm summer months), a barely there formula doesn’t always do the trick. We long for even, buildable coverage that will help mattify our oily T-zones, transform any imperfections, and ultimately create that coveted airbrushed appearance—without suffocating our skin. Sound impossible? Not quite. With oily skin types in mind, we’ve rounded up an epic list of full-coverage foundations that guarantee only the most flawless of finishes—no hourly touch-ups required.
