Matte makeup is the latest beauty necessity! Make sure you look calm, cool, and collected as the temperatures keep on rising. Check out our picks for the best mattifying beauty products for summer.
The thermometer has finally reached over 90 degrees! And while we love summer as much as the next person, the season comes with some serious baggage. We’re all about having glowing skin — but in the summer, this can mean our faces become oil-slicks before the clock strikes noon. To keep shine at bay, we’re bringing you the best mattifying products on the market right now. Check out our favorites in the gallery.
To tackle to problem of mid-day oiliness head on, incorporate mattifying products into your nightly or morning skincare routine. We love Bliss Steep Cleaning Mattifying Toner Pads. The use-and-toss pads cut through oil while acne-fighting ingredients keep banishing any and all blemishes. La Prairie Cellular Emulsion Matte Pore Minimizer is a light-weight moisturizer — yes, even oily skin needs to be moisturized — that uses lentil-seed extract to tighten pores and reduce oil production.
Primers ensure that your makeup isn’t slip ‘n slide all over your face during the day. Mattifying primers provide the same results as regular primers with the added benefit of perfectly matte skin. Simply apply right before your makeup application and marvel at how little you have to touch-up your makeup throughout the day. Our personal favorites include Philosophy Total Matteness Oil-Free Mattifying Pore Eraser, a milky serum that makes pores virtually disappear, and Cargo blu_ray High Definition Mattifier, a gel-like primer which I may-or-may-not be wearing right now (with fantastic shine-free results).
Finally, to banish shiny skin for good, try to incorporate mattifying makeup into your summer routine. Urban Decay De-Slick Mattifying Powder blots oil and works on every single skin tone. For some light coverage, we recommend Hydroxatone Anti-Acne CC Cream which provides hydration while keeping skin oil free and acne free. Lastly, always remember to bring along oil blotting sheets like Proactiv’s Oil Blotter Sheets in your purse to touch up any shiny spots throughout the day.
