Do you have oily skin and feel you’re at a loss of choice when it comes to buying the right makeup products? Your face begins to feel greasy in no time, and makeup feels heavy… well, no more! It’s possible to get through the entire day without your makeup melting in a few hours. Turn your attention to matte makeup to ace that perfect beauty look.

From creating the perfect base to achieving pout-perfect lips, here are the five best mattifying products for oily skin. Trust us, it’s a match made in heaven!

Lightweight primer

Layering makeup without using the correct primer on your oily skin is a beauty sin! Prep your skin with Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer. This lightweight and waterproof primer fills in large pores, blurs blemishes and fine lines to create a smooth canvas for your foundation to glide on. Plus, your makeup will not budge, and the chances of creasing or caking up will be a big zero!

Matte foundation

A wrong foundation can literally spoil your whole look, and nobody wants that! Get your oily skin the goodness of Lakmé 9to5 Primer + Matte Perfect Cover Foundation that has SPF 20 to shield skin from sun exposure, while its applicator wand helps to easily spread the formula across the face. With 16 shades to choose from, it offers medium to high long-wear coverage and blends easily for a flawless look.

Cheek tint

Here’s a tip worth noting down – ditch creamy formulas for good, especially when dealing with oily t-zone and cheeks. We recommend the Lakmé 9to5 Weightless Mousse Lip and Cheek Color that doubles up as a cheek tint too. You can dab and blend it on cheeks, temple, nose and chin, without worrying about it fading in a few hours. Available in 20 vibrant shades, its mousse-like texture glides on like butter and lends a powdery matte finish to your look.

Matte eye shadow

We know…with oily eyelids, nailing perfect eye makeup can prove to be difficult. So, why not get smart and grab the right eyeshadow for your oily concerns like Lakmé Absolute Infinity Eye Shadow Palette - Coral Sunset. It packs an intense matte punch with 12 distinct matte and shimmer shades. Be it any weather – hot, humid or cold – each shade blends effortlessly to give a bold, warm-toned finish. So, drop those oily concerns and get ready to turn heads!

Matte lipstick

When choosing a lip shade, be sure to pick a formula that doesn’t feel heavy on lips and keeps it crease-free for long. Turn your attention to the newly launched Lakmé Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color that has 25 dazzling shades to choose from. You don’t need to worry about cracked lips anymore because it has rosehip oil that makes your lips soft and supple and keeps it moisturised all day long (say what)! Its unique applicator wand provides precise application and an intense, velvety colour pay-off that feels light on lips and lasts for 16 long hours.
