Matte foundations won’t make your skin oily.

Most people don’t realize here that the matte foundation is actually NOT making your skin more oily. Instead, it’s the new oil on your face mixing with the foundation. I see this a lot in my clients who have really oily skin. Their skin is so oily that wearing a matte foundation can only provide temporary control of the oil (usually  2-3 hours).

However, this is actually a pretty easy fix. Try using an oil-free primer together with your matte foundation. A lot of people forget the importance of applying primers as part of their makeup routine. Primers, in my opinion, should not be skipped.
