Do you like a matte finish on your Foundation?

Personally, I like matte foundations, and I'm not sure why. I guess because it has a more "flawless" look to it. What is your opinion?

I like more of a dewy finish! I do like having a matte t-zone:smileyhappy: and I just mattify it with a blotting powder.

Matte all the way!! Combo/oily skin looks horrific with shimmer or shine added to it.  Yuck!

I choose matte because my skin is so oily.  It's too hard to keep up with the shine when I don't keep it in check.  A matte look is easier for me to maintain throughout the day.

matte because I have oily skin...dewy would just make me look like an oil slick within hours!

totally matte, i don't even wear highlighter much. i prefer matte blushes but will break out my shimmer ones for spring and summer as long as there is no sparkle.

when my skin was suuuuuper dry, i always wanted a dewy finish.  now that it's mysteriously oily i'd rather be matte!

I also prefer matte. It just looks flawless and if i wanted glow or shimmer i could use blush/bronzer for that.

I prefer the dewy look.  I was never a matte fan and found that it made my skin dull and lifeless looking.

I prefer matte if I need a little extra radiance here or there I can easily do that with my Dior Shimmer powder.

I like a dewy finish, personally. As my skin ages, it looks too flat and dull if it's matte and the wrinkles seem to show more. A more dewy finish makes my skin look younger, but if you don't have fine wrinkles, I'd say rock whatever finish you like!

I love a matte finish! I either wear a powder foundation or a liquid foundation and set it with a setting powder. I find that my makeup lasts all day when I do that, and it makes it easier to use powder makeup on top of a matte finish (blush, bronzer, highlighter) than an oily finish. Summer time I don't bother powdering, I live in Texas where its summer almost all year long and summers mean triple digits so I just slap on some sunscreen and a TM and I'm all set.
