The Best Matte Foundations to Use This Summer

Matte foundation is the perfect option for women with oily skin, and I should know, i’m one of them! However even if you don’t have this skin type, this summer is gearing up to be a scorcher so oily skin or not you’re gonna need a matte foundation that stays put during the heat. I have some great options you can try, and since many are drugstore brands they are quite cost effective. Read on for more!

Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte


This one is available in 40 different shades so whether your skin tone is dark or light you’ll be able to find a match. It is an oil-free formula made with climate-adaptive technology that’s resistant to sweat and humidity, so no matter how hot it gets this summer you should be fine. Oh and the best part is that it won’t clog your pores. Thanks Riri!

L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte


I personally swear by the L’Oreal Infallible pro matte, and as someone with oily skin I can attest to the fact that it does work. My favorite thing about this matte foundation is how light it is on the skin. You really don’t feel as if you’re wearing anything at all — and that’s pretty rare for a drugstore brand. You won’t regretting having this one in your makeup bag this summer, I promise!

YSL All Hours Foundation


Though it’s not a very cheap option— $60 on Sephora to be exact—many of your favorite makeup gurus swear by this one. So if you can afford to splurge go ahead and stock up for the summer. This full coverage foundation is oil-free and promises 24hr wear, but the best feature is that it contains spf 20, perfect for  summer!

Clinique Stay- matte


This oil-free matte foundation offers sheer to moderate coverage. It retails for under $30 and comes in 29 shades.

Tarte Amazonian Clay


One great feature that makes this full coverage foundation perfect for summer is that it contains SPF 15. It offers 12 hour wear and promises to reduce the appearance of pores, discolorations, and imperfections. However you won’t get all this at a cheap price so prepare to spend at least $40.

Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft Matte


This is a really great option for women of color, and since its a drugstore brand it won’t break the bank. This hydrating matte foundation from Maybelline has a unique gel formula and provides medium to full coverage. However the best thing might very well be the price $6.

NYX Stay Matte but not Flat


This is another perfectly priced option from NYX at just 8 bucks. It is a lightweight foundation that offers buildable coverage and gives a natural matte finish.

Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation


This is not a drugstore brand so prepare to spend at least 50 bucks if you want this one. I’ve seen some great reviews on this full coverage foundation that promises 24hr wear, and is transfer resistant.
