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.

Curly and full

Leaves my lashes curled and full. Easy to use and the brush shape means I can skip curling my lashes. Doesn’t flake or dry and lasts all day without smudging.

Pretty Good...

This primer worked so well with my oily skin!
The cheap price-point also adds a massive plus. Will be repurchasing again, might even make it a staple in my routine.
