What is the best foundation for oily skin?

If you’re looking for an oily skin foundation, you’ve come to the right place. Clarins has a range of plant-based, high-performance foundations that are perfect for mattifying and nourishing oilier skin types. So whether you’re looking for a powder-based foundation for oily skin or a full coverage liquid that won’t leave you looking shiny, here’s our breakdown of the best products for you.

Best foundation for oily skin with full coverage

If you’re looking for a perfectly unified and matte complexion that will hold all day long, try Clarins Everlasting Foundation. This high-coverage, long-lasting foundation (available in 24 shades) uses Bamboo Powder to give you an ultra-natural matte finish, while expertly hiding imperfections and blemishes. Infused with Organic Oat Sugars chosen specifically for their film-forming action, Clarins Everlasting Foundation creates a smoothing mesh on the surface of the skin for a flawless, even finish. Everlasting Foundation really works like skincare — say hello to shine-free skin!

Best powder foundation for oily skin

If you prefer a powder-based texture (which is especially good for oily skin), try Clarins Ever Matte Mineral Powder Compact; a super matte foundation for oily skin that’s packed with nourishing, shine-avoiding goodness. The ultra-fine powder controls shine for hours with a ‘Shine-Stopper’ complex; a combination of plants and minerals which mattify your complexion and tighten pores. The result? A face that’s perfectly even, velvety-smooth, and effortlessly matte — all day long. Top tip: use this powder foundation to set your liquid foundation for a double dose of mattifying power.

Best concealer for oily skin

Want refreshed and radiant eyes all day? Clarins Everlasting Concealer is a full coverage concealer that won’t slip, slide, or melt away. This luxurious concealer expertly masks the colour of dark circles while restoring the skin's natural tone and banishing unwanted shine. With a light texture and high matte coverage, this concealer hydrates and smoothes the eye area to leave you looking fresh and flawless. For the ultimate defence against oiliness, combine this concealer with Clarins Everlasting Foundation, then top with Clarins Ever Matte Mineral Powder Compact. All-over mattifying goodness.

Best BB cream for oily skin

Prefer a more natural look? Then a BB cream is for you. Lightweight and super hydrating, BB Skin Detox Fluid SPF 25 offers light-to-medium coverage with a natural-looking finish. This lightweight BB fluid covers imperfections and evens your skin tone for a flawless, glowing complexion. With Acerola Seed extract to boost the skin’s oxygenation and Meadowsweet extract for maintaining the balance of the skin flora, this lightweight foundation for oily skin nourishes as it conceals to leave you with radiant, rebalanced, perfectly matte skin.
