Its’ been forever since we’ve seen the “Matte” beauty trend but i’m happy to say, IT’S BACK and in a big way! The trend was on the runways and covered skin, lips and nails. Here’s a few ways you can incorporate the “Matte” trend into your everyday style.
* Foundation: Be sure to use a primer to combat shine and use blotting sheets as well if necessary. To control shine, use a light hand when applying foundation and don’t apply too much. If you over apply, adjust the coverage by dampening a makeup sponge and dab over your face where needed to thin it out. Apply translucent powder to set or touch up if necessary.
* Lipstick: For more of a matte look, try a lipstick over a lipgloss. A satin finish is a perfect option if you don’t want to wear a Matte finish. No matter what finish you choose, add staying power to your lipstick by applying one layer of lipstick then blotting with a tissue then applying another layer for extra staying power. For an “On-Trend” touch, keep in mind that berry colors are in this Fall/ Winter season.
* To top it off! The moment for non-shiny nails is here and you can achieve this look by simply applying a “Matte” topcoat to any nail polish.
