When it comes to our complexion, our preferences tend to change with the seasons. Spring and summer are all about achieving that perfect dewy glow, while fall and winter are when we opt for a more subdued, sophisticated finish: matte!
A great alternative to the multitude of radiance primers, concealers, and foundations currently hitting the market, matte products can provide an equally flawless complexion without any risk of unwanted shine! Even better, a matte complexion is the perfect choice to complement the bold lip hues we so love during the winter months... so why not give it a go?
A flawless matte complexion for winter
As with any other other beauty look, begin by smoothing a matte primer over clean skin.
Next, mattify and unify the complexion with a longlasting matte foundation. Apply the product onto the back of your hand and then use a sponge to sweep it onto the skin. Make sure to start at the center of the face, where we often need the most coverage, out towards the edges.
Correct your imperfections by tapping concealer over the imperfection. You can even use a small eyeshadow brush to blend out the edges (being careful not to go over the spot you want to conceal) for a perfect finish.
Now, the final step: use a large fluffy brush to apply your favorite matte powder over the T-zone (center of the forehead, down the bridge and along the sides of the nose, and the chin).
The end result? Beautiful matte skin all winter long!
