These Foundations for Oily Skin Are Endorsed by Beauty Obsessives
Here at Byrdie Australia HQ, we pride ourselves on being across the very best foundations on the market at any given moment, from mineral to drugstore. That said, we do sometimes wonder whether there are still some as-yet undiscovered favourites hiding out there. (Not kidding—the thought has kept us up nights.) Blame it on a millennial urge to always live our best lives, but we think existing without your perfect foundation is equivalent to not realising a passion for syrupy poached pears until late in life. (So many wasted days…)

Immediately after we put the ask out, tried-and-true recommendations rolled right in, with suggestions ranging from the familiar to the under-the-radar. Turns out, in addition to the usual suspects, there were in fact a few stellar bases we'd not yet pounced on.
