Gel formulas aren't only amazing as skincare products; they're perfect for oily skin even in the form of makeup. Unlike heavy creams, gel-based cosmetics hydrate the complexion without leaving a greasy film. Not only that, using a gel foundation with a gel moisturizer will make blending your makeup so much easier.
