Oily skin plagues many of us year round, but it gets worse with summer heat and humidity. Even those of us who don't consider ourselves oily might be surprised and dismayed by a beaming forehead in a photo (whencan I renew my passport?!). Just in time, jane iredalehas launched its super-duper HD-ready matifying powder called Beyond Matte in not one but FOUR shades! Why four? Translucent Finishing PowderTranslucent is ideal for light to medium skin tones Dark Finishing PowderDarkis perfect for medium to dark skin tones, and also makes a great bronzer. Lilac Finishing PowderLilacdoes wonders to brighten sallow complexions, beyond Matte Oil Control powder in peachand Peachwarms up pale skin. One time someone asked me how to get a dewy-matte look. I was stumped, but thankfully I have a team of experts to whom I can refer. Here are some great tips for how to achieve different matte finishes by using different brushes: • To get a red-carpet, HD-ready look that is totally matte with a velvety smooth finish on the skin, apply Beyond Matte with the Chisel Powder Brush. • For a medium matte finish, dust it on with the Blending Brush. This deposits slightly less powder on the skin for a clean, sophisicated look. • To leave a little glow on the skin (the elusive dewy-matte!), apply Beyond Matte with the White Fan Brush. This leaves just a hint of product on the skin for a natural, luminous finish. And if that's not enough, here are a few extra tricks from the experts: • For a controlled glow, apply Beyond Matte to the center of cheeks, nose, forehead and chin - the often shiny T-zone. • Thinking forward to fall's dramatic lips, you can make your stand by lipstick more vivid by applying Beyond Matte over the entire mouth area with your brush before applying lip color. • To tone down shimmery eye shadow, apply Beyond Matte right on top with the Large Shader Brush. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IyHx7raEbnw&feature=player_embedded#!
