Matte Makeup with Milk of Magnesia

matte makeup

Matte makeup gives you a smooth, chic look. How to achieve it? You can spend a small fortune on layers of cover-up, pore minimizers and foundation… or, you can simply crack open the milk of magnesia.

First things first: wash your face with a gentle cleanser, pat dry and apply your favorite moisturizer. Once the moisturizer has settled, take a bit of milk of magnesia and rub it into your skin, especially the “T-zone” (chin, nose, forehead) that tends to shine. Let this magic potion soak into your skin, then apply foundation and powder.

And that’s all there is to it: easy, inexpensive and effective.
