Products To Keep Your Mug Matte

While you’d love to achieve that dewy look in the summer, when it’s 90-plus degrees out, most of the time, “dewy” turns into “drenched in sweat.” There are two solutions for beating this beauty dilemma: become a hermit who never leaves her climate-controlled house, or invest in some anti-shine products that will keep your face matte. You choose.

  1. Create a solid base with Rimmel’s new Stay Matte foundation, a heavy-duty, shine-free formula that lasts for 12 hours. (There’s also a Stay Matte powder you can try coupling it with.) [$6.99,]
  2. If you don’t need a base color, but just want your natural skin to be less tacky, brush on Smashbox’s Anti-Shine powder-gel, a professional-grade product that absorbs surface shine. [$27,]
  3. Lock in the look with a top-notch anti-shine powder like Yves Saint Laurent Matt Touch. Anti-sebo sponge properties absorb oil and perspiration. [$40-$57,]
