It’s easy to write off matte skin once the colder months start to fade away. But at the Spring/Summer 2013 runway shows, makeup artists revealed a fresh-looking, updated version of matte: velvety, shine-free complexions that were perfectly paired with airy warm weather attire. To pull off this trendy look without relying too heavily on setting powder, we asked celebrity makeup artist Dora Salgado for her top tips.
Here’s everything you need to know about getting the new matte finish.
One of the easiest ways to achieve this coveted matte finish? A mattifying tinted moisturizer like Jouer’s Matte Moisture Tint.
For several seasons, the word “dewy” was omnipresent among makeup artists backstage at Fashion Week. But for spring 2013, there’s been a shift. From skin to eyes to lips, the matte finish is having having its moment next season—and this is matte like you’ve never seen before.
Kate Spade is one presentation that’s always so exciting to attend because it’s always upbeat. For next spring, the brand is going into brights overdrive with poptastic prints and neon accents—and the nails and makeup followed suit. “It’s ’80s-inspired rock-n-roll colors,” explained Jouer artist Neil Scibelli of the look. Certainly, the electric blue shadow that was winged out to the end of the brows and the thick white liner were a playful statement. (Side note: we were thrilled to see Scibelli using Jouer’s latest product, Matte Moisture Tint, on models’ skin—and to be introduced to a forthcoming spring gloss shade, Olivia.)
