Shop Makeup For Oily Skin

Don't despair - the battle against shine can be won! Though a dewy look is in, there's a line between a youthful glow and an oil slick. We've collected our favourite makeup solutions that can kick oil to the curb, or survive a sweaty workout at the gym.


Though makeup works differently on everyone, these products are designed to stay put, and last throughout the day. We know how hard it can be to find a mascara and eyeliner that doesn't melt or smudge or give you the dreaded raccoon-eye effect, but these work a treat for us!


When your skin is prone to oiliness, it can be really hard to find a foundation that keeps the shine at bay and looks just as good when you finish the day, as when you started. Try using a mattifying primer and/or a setting spray to really lock in your look. Another option is a mineral powder - these are so finely milled that they don't give you the dreaded powdery mask effect. A great setting or finishing powder can also go a long way to reducing shine throughout the day.


Blotting powders are becoming more and more popular - simply dab away the oil, no need to add another layer of powder. These banish oil while keeping your makeup intact - an essential for the gym, or a day out in the Aussie sun!


Still not sure about which makeup solution you need to perfect your look? We'd love to help! Simply fill out our makeup product recommendation form and we'll get you in touch with our trained makeup artists.

Doesn’t work :(

This didn’t work well for me. I found that it kept balling up when I would try to apply products on top even after waiting a while for it to settle into my skin

This really conditioned my lashes which I think prevented fallout. My lashes did lose some volume when I stopped using it. though.

Best setting spray

This setting spray has worked much better for me than any others I’ve tried. I find it really gives you a matte finish and controls oils throughout wear.
