We all build up oil throughout the day, which is why our hair goes flat and our faces get shiny! Thankfully, we have a few tips to keep your face matte for longer.

Start with a primer. You want to prep your face with a primer so that it holds the makeup intact. Otherwise, makeup will gradually dissolve throughout the day — washing out your complexion.

Use a concealer. Concealers offer more coverage than foundation and you don’t have to put it all over your face! Less is always more!

Seal your makeup with powder. A translucent powder can help keep your makeup intact and mattifying powders specifically target oily surfaces to keep your face oil-free!

Blotting papers. These are your new best friends! Take them with you wherever you go! Just dab it on your forehead, cheeks and chin to remove oil without removing your makeup.
