I have combination skin that's dry in the winter and a little oily in the summer. In the winter I use MUFE HD Foundation or NARS Sheer Glow, and in the summer I use Estee Lauder Double Wear. Revlon Colourstay is a good drug store long wearing foundation, the shade range wasn't light enough for me though!

I have the same skin type. I really like MUFE HD and Revlon Colorstay (make sure you get it for oily/combination skin, they also have a normal/dry one which is horrendous on my skin for obviously reasons) and I set them with Cover FX's loose translucent powder. I love the MUFE one because it has good coverage but is still lightweight for summer. I like wearing Colorstay more often during the winter versus the summer.

I LOVE Make Up Forevers water based line. I find my make up feels very heavy when I start getting oily, this one is very very light and dewy, I finish with a covergirl matte powder on top (for oily skin) and I dont touch up until the end of my day (Usually 8 hours of shine free wear) It runs about $45 from Sephora.

Hello i suggest the Mac Matchmaster foundation or the Revlon Colorstay(oily/combo) they are both really good and the revlon is very affordable. 

Don't feel obligated to use the same foundation year round. Also consider mixing what you've already got to see if you can find a balance, and then change the proportions as your skin changes.

For reference, I've got quite oily skin and at the moment my go to foundation is a mix of MAC's Face + Body and MUFE's Mat Velvet+. It gives a lighter weight feel, with a matte aspect.

I like MAC Studio Fix. It's a powder but if you use more it gives great coverage.

Sometimes it doesn't matter about the foundation. But for me it's Mac studio fix or Mac select with color stay translucent power.

Thanks all of you for your replies...@ Priscilla S. I tried something like this but have very dark circles for my whole look i got a great natural look but when i looked area around my dark circles there was alittle strange look maybe i made something but i think it was good & natural but i felt i didn't enough coverage so i didn't flawless face look thanks :)

Mac studio fix powder 100% for lightweight feel and full coverage - if u like liquids then Revlon colorstay for oily/combo skin.

Maybe try a real Korean BB cream, they keep your skin moist and it's a foundation. I have really oily skin and my current foundation routine is lioele triple the solution bb cream then Estée Lauder double wear, but very lightly. Then I finish with Bare minerals veil. They all work great for me.

The best drugstore one I've tried was the Revlon ColorStay. The Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation is good for a more medium coverage or natural looking foundation. As for powder, I'm still working on that. Lol.
