Glossy pouts, shimmery lids and dewy cheeks are synonymous with warm weather beauty. But we’re here to tell you that at the other end of the shine spectrum lies the secret to keeping cool on the balmiest of summer days.
Matte makeup — whether it’s a velvety powder finish, a stand-out lip or neutral eye (try them together for a truly dramatic effect) – conjures up images of eternally chic screen sirens, without looking overdone. It also has the added bonus of combating shine, which is a major plus when your all over glow isn’t the good kind.
