10 Face Powders That Will Keep Your Face Shine-Free

Shine-free skin can be yours with these picks!

 

(SPOT.ph) Here's a fact: Oily skin gets even oilier in the summer. As the temperature rises, it's almost impossible to go about your day without looking extra-shiny. We get it, dewy skin is in nowadays, but there's a fine line between glowing and greasy.

What makes the best oil-free face powder, anyway? Harper's Bazaar's must-haves include a silky texture (so the powder doesn't feel chalky when you put it on your skin), sheer coverage, and a matte finish that doesn't get cakey.

So what are some of the best oil-free face powders that will help keep shine under control?

 

 

Blot Powder/Pressed (P1,700) from MAC Cosmetics

With Manila's humid weather, going lightweight is always a good idea. Reach for MAC's Blot Powder—an oil-controlling pressed powder that feels as light as a feather (you might even forget that you put it on). It's perfect for mid-day touchups when you simply want to get rid of shine while adding a hint of color. It stops your makeup from creasing, too!
