Hey my loves! So with summer (and humidity) currently in full force, we have a new secret weapon to help you stay matte all day long. I’ve always been a huge believer in prepping your skin before makeup to achieve the best finish, and along with that, comes using a bomb-ass primer. Last year when we launched our #FauxFilter Foundation, we also launched our Complexion Perfection Primer, which is super hydrating and literally like a moisturizing treatment for your skin. But this year, we wanted to give our #oilyskinfam something too; something that you can use for on-the-spot control to reduce shine and oil ALL day long. So, we created our new Matte Perfection Pre-Makeup Base to give you guys oil-free, completely airbrushed skin.
The formula is super lightweight (it’s 60% water) and contains skin-enhancing plant extracts to balance the skin’s natural moisture levels, and minerals like magnesium, potassium and, calcium to revitalize the skin and boost radiance. Magnesium is actually a super important mineral, known to help reduce oiliness in skin, so naturally, we had to include it. The final result was a gel-like formula that controls shine and keeps makeup in place ALL day, while visibly reducing the appearance of pores and uneven skin texture.
If you have oily skin, go ahead and use the Matte Perfection Pre-Makeup Base all over and wait 20 seconds before applying your foundation – you can also use it by itself to help control oil. If like me you tend to have combination skin, you can use the mattifying primer in your T-zone, around the nose, upper lip and smile lines. On the areas where you need more hydration, you can apply our skin-nourishing Complexion Perfection Pre-Makeup Base (or your other fav primer), which will give you what I like to call a ‘mewy’ finish, aka a matte and dewy complexion that looks perfectly radiant.
The Huda Beauty Matte Perfection Pre-Makeup Base, $32, will be launching on 20th July at Sephora, CultBeauty.co.uk, Selfridges, and Harrods. Stay tuned on our social pages to see the full list of locations.
