We tend to associate oily skin with summer because it sort-of resembles actual perspiration, which is a totally different thing. Hot weather equals slick skin, right? Right. However, anyone who has unpredictable combination skin (myself included) will confirm that the greasy, non-dewy problems of one season easily translate into another, making the best matte foundation a must-have whether you’re sweltering on the beach and navigating a snowstorm.

As someone who has recently gotten over her phobia of matte formulas, I have a newfound obsession with foundations that turn down the shine without caking up and leaving flakes at the tip of my nose. In addition to my current favorite, Charlotte Tilbury’s Airbrush Flawless Foundation, is a sizeable selection of coverage options that provide the same benefits, albeit some fluctuation in shade ranges (but what’s new?). Learn more about each of them below. Maybe your new go-to is just a few clicks away.
