Fight Shine! Makeup Artists Share Their Favorite Mattifying Products
by Christine Mikesell | Posted 1 year ago

Fighting shine doesn’t need to be a big battle! I asked makeup artists for their favorite shine-fighting, oil de-slicking, and mattifying products. They mentioned everything from a laxative (yes, really) to one of Hollywood’s best kept moisturizer secrets — and even a classic rice blotting paper that you can buy at the drugstore down the street.

Sonia Kashuk Perfecting Transparent Mattifier or YSL Matt Touch primer

Celebrity makeup artist Veronica Lorenz (also the creator of the beloved Beauty Blender Sponge) has two go-to makeup primers when she needs to provide a matte finish. The Sonia Kashuk is a clear gel than can be used under or over your favorite foundation to help smooth imperfections and get rid of excess shine. Matt Touch is a primer with unique Spherical Micro-powders that help control oil, while radiance-boosting pigments hide imperfections and brighten shadowy areas.
