I have always used really light coverage tinted moisturizers or foundations on my face, but lately I have really been looking for a product that will keep my face matte all day without having to use additional loose powders or whatnot. I have combination / oily skin and get occassional pimples on my forehead. When I use foundation, it often makes my face feel too wet and I would much rather use a non-cakey powder foundation to reduce shine. Any suggestions?
I'd also like to suggest the Lorac Wet/Dry Oil Free Powder and the Make Up For Ever duo mat. Lorac is a very sheer and lightweight powder that will easily reduce oil and shine, but can be worn wet for a sheer coverage, or dry for a fuller and more made up look.
The MUFE Duo Mat is a full coverage foundation powder that is excellent in coverage and comes in a variety of shades that are all great for reducing shine and oil on the skin.
Try also the Clinique Stay Matte Sheer Pressed Powder which absorbs oil and shine, mattifies the skin and looks amazing alone or on top of a tinted moisturizer or sheer liquid foundation. This was my go to favorite lightweight foundation powder that helped keep my combination skin smooth and matte for hours.
