Matte-r Of Fact Makeup that won't melt in the sweltering summer.

The hot summer sun plus the heavy humidity always equals leaving our faces unflatteringly shiny. Although keeping oil control film handy is a good idea for a quick save, it's always better to use products that target matte finishes to keep oil-free. As a general tip especially for the hot weather, try to stay away from powders and fluids with an iridescent sheen that may add to the illusion of further oiliness. However, don't go suddenly crazy on the cakey foundation – as with any season, the key to a natural finish is to find the balance between achieving enough coverage while keeping your skin breathable. Because a summer glow doesn't entail an oily face, we give you some products to keep you matte while on summer mode.
