Go light and fresh for summer, when you tend to be more oil-prone. Mattifying products are obvious choices, but you also need to look for those that offer sunscreen protection against UV rays.

  • Prep skin with an oil-absorbing primer to help prolong the staying power of your makeup.
  • If you require more coverage, follow with an oil-free liquid or a cream-to-powder formula (they stay matte longer), blending evenly with your finger or a sponge.
  • Powder is a girl's best friend when it comes to banishing a shiny T-zone. Set your foundation with a sweep of mineral foundation powder to create a matte effect.
