Personally, I have really oily skin so I am always trying to get as matte as possible! I think there’s nothing wrong with a matte face as long as it’s not cakey like you said.posted over 4 years ago
I think most people prefer natural looking makeup, and matte doesn’t really look natural outdoors in the sunlight. I wear powder only because I’m oily as well, but I’d rather have dewy skin without any powder. I only use it on my t-zone, and the barest bit, so you can’t really tell I’ve got it on (I hope!).posted over 4 years ago
I love it. I have combination skin so I dust it over my t-zone and put blush on my cheeks and in a couple hours the oil makes it look perfectly dewy and fresh, then I just blot the excess oil when needed. Do whatever makes you feel pretty though. I like matte faces and I’m sure lots of other people do too so you’re not alone.posted over 4 years ago
You shouldn’t let others dictate how you do your make up.
Matte looks ten times better than an oily face. Not a lot of people have naturally smooth faces, so that’s why translucent powder exists.
