Keeping Matte: Tried and True

Tuesday, June 24, 2008

So FB commented yesterday on my sunscreen post that it made her face greasy – and it got me thinking. Now that it’s summer, a lot of us will need a little extra help to stay grease-free – so, I wanted to help out a bit. As usual, the solutions that I will super-endorse are all fairly cheap!!

Starting with this post, there are three matte posts scheduled to go up today! The next one up is: Other Alternatives.Tried and true

  • Try keeping a pack of blotting tissue at hand – my favourite (and the only brand I’ve ever used!) is Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets. They’re the drugstore-cheap, and work well!
  • Apply mineral makeup where you get greasy – semi-matte Everyday Minerals foundation keeps my face dry all day long, without looking cake-like.

See you at ten for the next instalment!

    I’m assuming that’s OVER sunscreen right?

  2. Yes – absolutely. Or just on its own, to keep dry. I don’t usually have enough grease on my face to warrant doing anything about it until right after I sunscreen, so yes. But any of this could definitely be done on its own!
