Fed up of piling on the foundation only to still have shiny skin by the time you get to work? Well, foundation for oily skin could be the answer. Instead of whacking on layers and layers of foundation to try and make your skin more matte, choose a foundation that's specifically targeted towards oily skin (aka won't clog your pores and helps get rid of that damn shine).
Don't worry, you're not alone. The dreaded greasy nose is something we all have to deal with #beautyproblems.
And when it's sunny? God, it's even worse. Not only do we need a foundation that keeps our skin looking cool as a cucumber but we need it to stay put through a sweaty commute and (optimistic) sun-filled lunch hour. Is that so much to ask?
So to keep everything looking super fresh, not only do you need a foundation for oily skin but following our top tips for a perfect finish wouldn't go a miss. Read on gals!
