Beat the Heat with an All-Day Matte Makeup Look.

With summer underway, staying fresh and looking so all day can be a challenge when there is no time to touch-up your makeup. With the right products, you can beat the heat and look fresh and fabulous all day long. The key is creating a matte makeup look that lasts. I've been using the ultimate oil-control duo from Murad, and it's been helping to keep my makeup looking matte and fresh this summer.

Beat the Heat with an All-Day Matte Makeup Look for Summer


Oil on the skin can break down makeup, so it's smart to prep the skin with a product like Murad InstaMatte Oil-Control Mask. This product helps to create a fresh, matte canvas before creating your makeup look. It's a double duty product because it can also be used as a daily cleanser.


Press and pat Murad Oil-Control Mattifier SPF 15 into the skin to help control oil from breaking down makeup. This helps to hydrate the skin as it mattifies so use it as your last step in your skincare routine.


Apply your favorite matte foundation. Here are some recommendations.


Sculpt your face with a bronzer. A matte bronzer is best for summer and will help further control the look of shine and oil. Bronzer not only gives a look of the sun, but it also adds dimension. Here are some recommendations.


Apply neutral shades of shadow for a natural summer eye look. I shared my natural summer look and palette I use here. For a quick and easy summer look, apply your matte bronzer all over the lid and brow bone with a large, fluffy shadow brush.


Apply a peachy-nude matte lipstick to lips to complete the look. See our picks for nude lipsticks here and our recommendations for the best matte lipsticks here.
