Oily skin tend to produce more sebum than normal skin. In addition, they are also more prone to acne. If you have oily skin there are three things you need to ask yourself before purchasing a foundation: 1) Will it cause you more breakout? 2) Will it clog pores? 3) Does it control oil production?
Main things to look for in a foundation for oily skin:
