Take The Shine Off

written by Makeup Artist Brandy Gomez-Duplessis

One of the most asked questions I hear every day is how to maintain a matte look.

Combination and Oily skin makeup wearers have the hardest time when it comes to wearing makeup. Within 20 mins from washing your face you notice your skin looks really dewy, and you overload your face with powder to keep the matte look. Trust me, I understand your dilemma when working long days and traveling from state to state.

Here are a few makeup items that can help you keep that matte look throughout the day.


M.A.C. Cosmetics Blot Powder: Make sure you always press it on because wiping will remove the foundation. Take the puff and turn it upside down that way you donโ€™t add bacteria into the product. $21.00 http://www.maccosmetics.com

Smash box Anti-Shine Powder Gel: Before foundation, use this item on your T-zone. It also works well if you place it around your lip line to hold your lipstick color. $27.00 http://www.sephora.com

Cargo High Defintion Mattifier: Itโ€™s great for someone with very oily skin and enlarged pores. Gives instant gratification. Works well as a primer before applying foundation. $24.00 http://www.sephora.com

YSL Matt Touch Foundation: This is a great item because it really leaves the skin matte but not dull or dry looking. $48.00 http://www.yslbeautyus.com
