Move over, gloss and shimmer, the matte effect is a great way to work a subtle, yet stunning, beauty look! Eddie Malter, L'Oréal Paris Canada's makeup expert, shows us how we can get the look ourselves...
Apply your favorite foundation, then use a large soft makeup brush to lightly dust on some mattifying powder, like True Match Powder, over your forehead, temples, nose and chin.
An eyeshadow like L'Oréal Paris' Cupa Joe is perfect, not only for its matte finish but you can use the three tones to create a subtle smoky eye.
Use a soft kohl liner along the upper lash line to give your eyes definition. Eddie's tip is to apply the liner from the inner lashes out.
A mascara such as Voluminous Butterfly will give you super long, large lashes. Or you could go for the Miss Manga mascara, for a wide-eyed look. It depends on how you prefer to wear your mascara.
A nude lipstick, lightly brushed over with some mineral face powder, completes your makeup look.
Matching Matte Nails
For an all-over matte beauty look, don't forget your nails! L'Oréal Paris' Magic Top Coat in Matte Velvet is perfect for turning any nail polish into a matte one - even complex nail art designs! Just apply at the very end, as you would any top coat.
