Best Makeup For Oily Skin

What's Your Favorite Brand?

Finding the best makeup for oily skin can be a challenge, especially if you're a woman over 40.

At this age, many women begin to experience drier skin.....and most oily skin foundations I've come across are usually designed for teenagers and younger women.

So you want to choose makeup brands that are meant for mature skin but can also address other issues that come with oily skin - such as blackheads, clogged pores, and breakouts.

So the question is - Can you still wear makeup without aggravating your complexion?

Yes, you can! Especially if you stay away from liquid foundations - even if they're labeled for oily skin - they may still contain ingredients that aggravate and clog pores.

Also many foundations contain fragrances, mineral oils, dyes, and other ingredients.

Often times these "extra" ingredients trigger allergic reactions, rosacea, eczema and other related symptoms --- and this makes finding the best makeup for oily skin quite a struggle.

What is oily skin? It’s a condition where too much oil is produced from the sebaceous gland causing the skin have enlarge pores, blackheads, whiteheads, dullness, and a greasy appearance.

Normally, the sebaceous glands that are attached to the hair follicles secrete normal amounts of sebum (oil). This oil travels up the follicle and spread out onto the skin, keeping it moist and healthy.

But those who produce too much oil, usually run into a number of problems like:

  • Acne
  • Pimples
  • Blackheads

When choosing your makeup make sure to read the labels carefully – even though a makeup says it's for an oily complexion, it might contain some oil, talc, and fragrances. Make sure your mineral makeup contains 100% pure minerals and is non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores).

When selecting a mineral makeup stick with reputable brands like:

  • Simply Karen - MATTE Mineral Foundation - which is excellent for troubled skin (like acne and rosacea) and is infused with antioxidants and vitamins. (Plus, it's more cost effective than the popular Bare Escenturals and Jane Iredale!)
  • Mommy Makeup -This is like a foundation and concealer all in one! Love It!

These brands offer some of the purist forms of minerals for the best coverage and beautiful results.

Today’s mineral makeup is not just about covering blemishes and imperfections, mineral makeup has been shown in clinical studies to offer anti-aging benefits as well.

For example, the zinc oxide found in most mineral makeup with added sunscreen also serves as an anti-bacterial/anti-inflammatory ingredient.

Makeup used to be considered bad for your skin, but with the newer foundations on the market - they can actually help your complexion. These days, many dermatologists are recommending mineral makeup for their patients with acne scars and rosacea.

The coverage that mineral makeup offers is so light and natural, yet effective enough to cover blemishes and imperfections, that most times you can’t tell if someone is wearing makeup at all.
