How To Stay Matte All Day (On A Budget)

Hey everyone! I hope you’re all having a great weekend. I’ve been meaning to post some more outfit photos here on the blog lately, but between traveling back and forth to college and being sick, it’s been difficult to find time! Hopefully I can find time to shoot more of them soon. In the meantime, I apologize for the myriad of beauty posts! It’s really fun to write about products though, so I suppose I’m not too sorry haha.

So many of us, even those like me with dry skin, struggle with keeping our makeup matte all day. The problem I have is that I want my skin to look bright and healthy, without being shiny looking. Here are my three favorite drugstore products to keep your face fresh for hours, without breaking the bank!

A good primer is a must whether you’re looking for a dewy or matte finish. This one is my current favorite! It’s from Maybelline’s Master Prime range, which also features great color-correcting options. This one blurs and smooths your pores, and does a great job of keeping your foundation in place. The best part is, it’s just $9.99!

A cult favorite, this Rimmel Stay Matte Powder is something I’ve raved about before! It’s probably my most repurchased product EVER! The packaging is a little annoying because the lid comes off easily, but it’s really amazing for reducing shine. Plus it comes in super pale colors, which is helpful for me haha. It instantly absorbs any oil that is on your face, and it’s only $4.99 from Ulta!

Last but not least, the NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray. I recently discovered this, and it’s been a must have ever since! A few sprays of this will keep your makeup in place for hours, and it doesn’t feel sticky or tacky on the skin. They also make a dewy version if that’s more your style too! It’s just $7.99.

So there you have it! My tips for keeping your skin totally matte all day, and you can get all of these for only $23! I just love finding great drugstore makeup.


What do you think? Have you tried any of these products before? Do you prefer matte or dewy, and how do you get your skin to stay that way? Let me know in the comments! Thanks for stopping by 🙂

    I definitely prefer more of a dewy finish so I wouldn’t us all three products together but really like the sound of the NYX setting spray, it sounds like a good one especially since they have a dewy version too x

  2. Great post! I definitely have a problem with staying matte. I love a dewy look, but I hate how it accentuates my pores. However, every time I try to mattify my face, I always feel like it’s caked up. I’m definitely going to give these products a try.

  3. Cult favourite is the perfect way to describe it, but I’m still yet to try the stay matte powder, need to though! I have dry skin too so I have always shyed away from matte bases 😛 Gonna try it out now though!
