6 Best Concealers for Oily Skin

6 Best Concealers for Oily Skin

As far as makeup is concerned concealer is a must have product for me especially during the hot and humid days, I just don’t like to layer my skin with foundation, in my opinion concealers that match your skin tone are much forgiving than sliding foundation.


Like foundations, concealers too come in a variety of textures that are targeted to suit variety of skin types. Depending upon your budget you can opt for the real high end ones or the more affordable drugstore formulas.

Before picking out the one for your oily skin keep in mind the below stated points:

• Avoid lotion or oil based concealer as these will make your skin even more oily.
• Always go for Stick, mineral powder based, or gel based concealers. Mousse concealers are also good as long as they are oil free.
• To avoid rashes on oily skin, go for fragrance free concealers.

  4. Hello,
    I have oily skin and terrible dark circles under my eyes. Most makeup creases around my eyes. For oily skin, I should have preferred stick concealers but that does not work for the undereye part. I don’t have many corrections to make on my face, except for faint acne scars which get camouflaged with the foundation itself. Could someone please help me out with this oily skin vs. undereye creasing problem? Also, what kind of applicator should I use?
    Thank you 🙂
