Here Are The Matte Products For A Flawless Face This Summer

While some people have dry skin, others have oily skin. This has some benefits, such as natural moisturisation. It can, however, be an embarrassment when your forehead is so shiny it’s almost reflective by noon. For many, this is even worse during the sweaty summer months. 

Fortunately, there are skincare and make-up buys that can help you on your quest for shine-free skin. Here are the matte product picks we recommend.

First things first

Hold on a sec – before you even reach for your foundation, it’s a good idea to prep your skin. This can also help to keep shine at bay. First, apply a mattifying cream, followed by a primer with the same properties. This will make the perfect base for a long-lasting matte complexion.

Your foundation fit

In the past, we were limited when it came to foundations – both in shade selection and skin compatibility. Nowadays, there are more options so that everyone, and every skin type, is catered for. Whether you want a dewy finish or a matte one and minimal or heavy coverage, there’s a foundation formula for you. 

For people with oily skin, there are foundations that contain oil-absorbing minerals or oil-balancing skincare ingredients, like niacinamide and salicylic acid, to deliver a long-lasting matte look that isn’t drying or cakey.

On-the-go touch-ups

Often, the grease doesn’t make its appearance immediately, while you are still at home, but later in the day when you are away from your make-up and mirror. For this reason, you should carry some things with you for touch-ups on the go. Blotting papers are effective and easy to carry with you, but these can remove or disrupt your foundation. Instead, we recommend a powder – either a translucent one or one that matches your base – to absorb any oil for a magnificent matte complexion.
