beauty queen: feifei sun

all matte everything.

by ray siegel

Matte makeup in all forms has been going strong all year (as seen on today's Queen, Feifei Sun), but matte products are especially crucial during summer. With temperatures and humidity on the rise, here's the best way to avoid looking like your makeup is completely melting off:

PRIME IT: MAC Prep + Prime Face Protect SPF 50, $30 Underneath your makeup, use this nearly invisible sunblock that doubles as a fast-absorbing primer.

MATTIFY IT: Dr. Brandt BB Matte with Shinerase, $39 You'd be hard pressed to find a better BB cream to wear in the heat. Built for oily skin, it mattifies, protects, and won't clog your pores the way most foundations do.

PAINT IT: Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Legendary, $19 Finish your look with a matte red lip that will stay put.
