Guess who’s here? Matte! Not the lovable Matt LeBlanc from F.R.I.E.N.D.S., but an equally promising trend – Matte Makeup! That’s right.
It was not long ago that everyone wanted to shine on. But time has fast changed tracks and the trend today is shine gone, matte on.
Why is everyone jumping on the shine-free bandwagon, you ask? Simple! Shine-free makeup makes you look less like an oil factory and more natural. What’s not to love about a trend that makes you look good, covers all your bumps and blemishes and is easy to wear. Moreover, it always gives you a fresh, dewy look.
So if you too want to be on-trend, we’ve got some stellar products to get you started.
Step 1: The Base
The first step to good makeup is a good base. And by that, we mean a clean, silky-smooth, poreless canvas for you to create the magic of makeup.
Try: Coloressence’s Rollon Panstick
Formulated to lock the moisture in your skin, this does not block your pores. What’s more is that it protects you from UV rays and keeps your skin feeling youthful.
Step 2: The Foundation
A foundation works wonders in covering blemishes and imperfections and gives an even base to begin makeup. Choose one that matches your skin type and skin tone. The best way to test a foundation is to try it on the jawline or neck.
Try: L’Oréal Paris Liquid Foundation
Here is a fantastic product that promises all-day maximum matte coverage. It blends perfectly into your skin giving you complete coverage, without the oiliness. Yes, its oil control formula absorbs extra sebum ensuring an all-day matte look. It has a lovely Rose-Vanilla fragrance too and is transfer-proof, waterproof and heat-proof. Do anything you want, this one will stay out.
Step 3 – The Lip Colour
A lip colour not only enhances one’s looks but also boosts overall appeal and self-confidence. Moreover, it gives lips a great definition and gives them a fabulous appearance.
Try: SUGAR Cosmetics Matte As Hell Crayon Lipstick
A deeply pigmented lip colour that’s bold, sharp, and gives an everlasting silky matte finish. Pout or kiss someone on the cheek, this lip colour will not fade. Get ready to face the world with confidence with lipstick that lasts long.

Step 4 – The Eyeliner
An eyeliner is a miraculous product that accentuates your eyes and gives them oomph. It can literally transform your eyes and give them the much-needed lift. So girl, let your eyes do some talking.

There are many reasons why you will love it. It is water-proof, smudge-proof and you can now go from cat-eye, thick wings to Arabic eyes in just one stroke. It has a pen-like grip and a special flexi-tip to give you a wobble-free application.
Great list, right? Go, ace the no-shine look and give your skin the ‘wowness’ it needs. The good thing about matte finish makeup is that it does not reflect light, hence it’s a good alternative for those with oily skin. So, work day or holiday or just about any day, keep your skin shine-free.
