Can anyone recommend a good drugstore foundation for oily skin.
Or ways to prevent oily skin?
I rarely wear foundation, because i have decent complextion but i do like how foundation just makes the whole look, look complete.
So Advice, Please?
I have combination oily skin and i am a huge fan of neutrogena healthy skin foundation. You will need to set it with a powder but the coverage it gives is beautiful...quickly becoming a cult fav!!
revlon colorstay foundation for oily to combo skin is a good one and also those oiling blot sheets help mattify skin throughout the day. Try also using a mattifying gel/primer before applying your foundation to keep your foundation from sliding.
Naseem D. any good primers you suggest?
or setting powder?
I use rimmel fix and perfect primer with bare escentuals primer:
here is a step by step tutorial (be sure to check description box for full list of products used)
Neutrogena healthy skin is awesome I also have oily skin and this helps me out! I set it with a translucent powder and for primer I love the Nyx studio perfect photo-loving primer. =) hope this helps.

I love Maybelline's Fit Me Foundation, Neutrogena Healthy Skin is nice too. You should try the L'Oreal Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base Face Primer. Hard Candy's Sheer Envy Face Primer is a good primer aswell.
I like Neutrogena Clear Skin foundation. Just feels so good. A good way to cut down on oiliness is dandruff shampoo. It can dry your skin out but it does the trick.
OMG i will be trying the Neutrogen Clear Skin Foundation! Thanks ladies,
Also Erica F. you just made me take notice i have been using selsum blue for my dry scalp and i have noticed that my oilyness has calmed down!
Yes ma'am. My mom would always tell me to wash my face with it whenever it got oily or I had a break out. Usually cleared me up within a day or sol
I have super oily skin, from drug store I use Revlon color stay for oily skin, also a mattifying moisturizer first Vichy makes a good one which can b found at CVS for about $22 also deslick setting spray from urban decay are musts for me.

I love the Revlon ColorStay Foundation and the Dream Matte Mousse by Maybelline (though be careful because if you don't apply right it could get cakey). To prevent a super oily face use a primer, I also recommend the Rimmel London Fix & Perfect and the L'Oreal Magic Perfecting Base.
Also use a setting powder. I like the CoverGirl Queen Collection Lasting Matte Pressed Powder and for my under eye concealer I love the e.l.f HD Powder. This is actually a skin care product but for the summer I've been using the Clean & Clear Shine Control Facial Cleanser and I've definitely seen a diffrence throughout the day.
Hope this helps!
Revlon ColorStay Foundation is the best for oily/combo skin as it is a mattifying foundation! I highly recommend.

Prevention-wise? Get a good skincare routine going, and do NOT skip moisturizer. *nods*
I would suggest using a toner if you don't already, witch hazel is great and cheap. Also incorporate a clay mask once or twice a week to help control the oil. Queen Helene's Mint Julep is a good drugstore one or LUSH Magnaminty. Like Shelly T said don't skip moisturizer - your skin will try to compensate by producing more oil.
i love makeup forever HD they have the matt one thats non comedgenic and it would be great if your skin is oily and it wont clog your pores and looks really natural wich i love but does a great job at coverage and you can always add more which is nice. and if you have oily skin you should try primed and poreless its fantastic!!

Where do you get the make up forever HD.??
Because I'm a girl of darker complexion I was always scared to try BB Creams. I still wear foundation in the summer, but when I don't want a heavy coverage I apply a tip I learned on Youtube. It's another DIY tinted moisturizer, instead you use your regular moisturizer and mix it with your favorite mineral foundation. I actually tried it and like it.
