Matte makeup tutorial: How to try the trend

Once you go matte, you'll never go back!

Matte is the beauty trend that has everyone talking, from the red carpet to the runways to the city streets. And while we've been talking about matte nails and lips for some time now, the conversation's been upped thanks to the arrival of the full-on matte face. Adios, greasy T-zone!

Matte makeup tip!
  1. Go through your normal beauty routine of moisturizer, eye cream, concealer and foundation. Don't skip out on those important steps. You can always go for a mattifying moisturizer or foundation if you're worried about shine sneaking through.
  2. With a medium-to-large sized powder brush, apply mattifying powder to your cheeks and T-zone.
  3. Add mascara and perhaps a matte-finish lipstick and you'll be out the door looking shine free, yet still radiant!
