Having oily skin can be a tricky terrain to navigate when it comes to beauty. Most ladies that deal with high shine have to find products that strike just the right balance between glow and glare. Mattifiers can be great, but if a dewy, fresh-faced complexion is what you’re after, turn to natural-looking foundations that are specifically formulated to bring out your best. Check out our faves for a glowy face below.
