Oily skin and foundation don’t always play nicely together. Whether it’s the high probability that the makeup melts after mere minutes or the lengths you have to go to keep excess shine from making an appearance, several frustrating factors come into play. But thankfully, setting powders exist, and they’re a godsend for ensuring foundation looks flawless all day—especially for those with oilier skin.

So how do they work? Well, setting powders act like an invisible shield, sopping up excess oil and controlling shine, all while blurring pores to deliver a smooth, polished finish. They also help lock your foundation in place, so you don’t experience that aforementioned slippage. Since you only deserve the best, we’ve rounded up our 15 favorite setting powders for oily skin types that minimize shine, soak up excess oil, and leave your makeup looking flawless all day.
