How I Keep My Skin Looking Matte All Day // Shop My Favorite Products

How I Keep My Skin Looking Matte All Day // Shop My Favorite Products

I get a lot of questions about my beauty routine, but the question of how I keep my skin looking matte all day, especially after a workout, is one that comes up pretty frequently. I figured I’d share my secrets in a dedicated blog post. Disclaimer: I don’t promote wearing makeup to the gym, but since the only workouts I participate in are at blogger events which are usually sandwiched between other events, I happen to always be wearing makeup.

Dermalogica Clearing Mattifier
On days when I know I’ll either be active or in the sun, I use this mattifier as primer. It keeps me shine free all day and has the added bonus of clearing breakouts too.

BECCA Soft Light Blurring Powder
If you’ve been following for awhile, you have definitely heard me talk about this blurring powder. I’m a complete addict and swear by this product. I put it on after foundation for a flawless, matte finish. I also put a layer on top of my finished makeup if I’m shooting that day.  

NYX HD Finishing Powder
This is the product you’ll always find in my purse because it’s a great size and works great for touch-ups. I like how it’s colorless so doesn’t affect whatever makeup you already have on.

Blotting Sheets  
To be completely honest, if I use the aforementioned products, my skin rarely gets to the point where I need blotting sheets unless I’m directly in the sun for long periods of time, usually on vacation. I love carrying these in my bag though because they’re an easy way to get rid of shine and also don’t mess up your makeup.

Let me know if you have any additional recs!
