How to Stay Matte for Every Occasion

Oily skin is often a challenge in the summer months. We spoke with our Global Makeup Educators Edgar Dominguez, Hannah Hatcher, Shawn Towne, and Tricia Campbell to get tips on how to stay perfectly matte and oil-free whether you’re at work or heading to a wedding.

How to stay matte all-day

According to our Global Makeup Educators, there are three steps to an all-day matte finish.

Start with a good base. If you have oily skin, we suggest using Smooth Affair for Oily Skin Facial Primer. It contains a revolutionary PoreAway technology that helps reduce shine, the appearance of pores, and clogged pores and creates a smooth matte finish.

Apply your foundation and makeup as usual; Hannah suggests using “a lightweight matte foundation like Dream Tint Tinted Moisturizer to help cut down on oily shine and to help keep you matte all day.”

Finish your look with Amazing Matte Loose Finish Powder or PureMatte Finish Powder. They both contain Rice Starch to soothe skin, absorb oil, and eliminate shine. If you need a boost throughout the day, spritz Balance Hydration Spray on your face; it’s formulated specifically to help balance skin’s oil production and pH.

How to stay matte at a wedding or party

If you’re attending a wedding or any special event where you’ll be in front of the camera, our Global Educators have two suggestions – Beyond Matte and Absence Oil Control Primer. “Beyond Matte is better for people with especially oily skin or for special occasions when you really want your skin to look matte for longer periods of time,” says Shawn. “The proprietary technology in the formula helps control shine for hours and minimize the appearance of texture. It literally makes the skin look smoother.” For brides, our Global Educators suggest using Absence as a primer because it keeps your makeup color true all day and contains Kelp Extract and Hydrated Silica, which holds up to seven times its molecular weight in moisture, to balance and absorb excess oil.
