Choose us as your source for nourishing skin-friendly makeup and find oily skin foundation to get that matte look you desire.



What Kind of Foundation Works Best for Oily Skin?

If you suffer from oily skin, you’re not alone. Thousands of people deal with oily shine and acne breakouts, but it’s possible to manage this condition by using skin-friendly makeup and specialized foundation for oily skin.

Depending on the source of your oily skin, you may want to try different products. Typically, the easiest products to apply is a makeup powder for oily skin. Our Pressed Mineral Foundation Compact is the perfect mineral powder for those with too much sebum production. It provides light, breathable coverage that won’t clog pores or contribute to excess oil. Unlike other formulas, this mineral foundation for oily skin doesn’t appear cakey.

We also offer brush-on foundation. If you have trouble keeping your skin acne-free under those oily sunscreens, then our tinted, chemical-free sunscreen may be your perfect solution. We also offer a primer designed specifically for oily faces that you can use to make your look last all day! Add the best anti-aging sunscreen and our sagging eyelids cream to your tool kit to maintain your youthful glow.


How Should I Wash My Makeup Brushes?

Every day, your brushes accumulate dirt, debris, and dead skin cells from your face, vanity, and makeup bag. This means that every day you’re applying more bacteria to your face, and increasing the likelihood that it will combine with the oil in your pores. Wash makeup brushes regularly to keep your skin from breaking out. 

Simply rinse your brushes under lukewarm water and gently brush off makeup on the bristles. Then, fill a shallow bowl with water and baby shampoo, and swirl the brushes in the water. Rinse the brushes until the water runs clean. Follow rinse by air-drying your brushes.

Beat those complexion blues with one of our oily skin foundations. Our experts have created formulas designed to prevent breakouts, so you can say goodbye to those old greasy formulas and say hello to Colorescience’s mess-free foundation for oily skin.
