Application Techniques

Matte makeup always looks freshly applied and flawless! During the winter, indoor heating can cause foundation to feel sticky and heavy, and in summer months, humidity can sabotage your makeup. Add an extra line of defense with our Mattify Powder for Oily Skin! Doubling as both a primer and setting powder, our clear powders absorb oil - to keep your face looking fresh for hours.

To apply Mattify ULTRA, Original or Sensitive Transparent Powder for oily skin as a Primer, use a fluffy powder brush and dip into the powder so that just the tops of the bristles are coated.  Tap to remove excess and apply in dabbing motions, paying special attention to T-Zone.  Swirl brush in circles to blend.  It can also be applied using a powder puff, for more targeted application.

Apply before any type of foundation as a primer

Apply after any type of foundation as an oil absorbent setting powder

Apply alone if you only need oil control, without coverage

Apply for touch-ups during the day to wick away oil 

Apply before eye shadow as primer to stop creasing

Apply according to your specific skin type:

  • Combination Skin:   Apply only to oily areas.  Shine-free finish should last about 8 hours.
  • Oily Skin: Apply either immediately before or after foundation.  Shine-free finish lasts about 6 hours.
  •  Very Oily Skin: Apply both before and after foundation.  Shine-free finish should last about 4 hours.
  •  Dry Skin:  Not Recommended.  The powder will stick to dry flaky areas and make them more noticeable.
  •  Men:  Apply sparingly using a fluffy powder brush, dust off excess with a clean powder-free brush

Do you feel like you have the oiliest skin in the world?

Mattify ULTRA Powder is your invisible solution to oil control. Since this powder is completely transparent, it can even be used on men with oily skin! This finely milled powder instantly mattifies skin and provides an air-brushed finish. Even if you don't wear makeup our transparent Mattify Powder will absorb oil for hours, keeping you shine free. It also works wonderfully as a foundation, eye shadow & eyebrow pencil primer, to ensure long lasting color that will not streak or fade.

How to Apply

Application of Mattify Tinted Makeup for Oily Skin will cover minor imperfections such as light freckling or small acne blemishes, when applied alone. For added coverage, apply Mattify Conceal-Zit TM to any breakouts or dark circles before and/or after using Mattify! Tinted Foundation. Our Conceal-Zit is an innovative concealer that does not contain silicone (dimethicone), Bismuth Oxychloride, or Carnauba Wax. This allows skin to circulate oxygen, thereby healing blemishes faster.




Mattify Tinted Foundation can also be used as an oil absorbent powder over your favorite liquid foundation, to provide extra coverage.


Mattify! Cosmetics Concealer can be used alone, in combination with Mattify Tinted Makeup for Oily Skin, or along with your favorite liquid foundation.  It minimizes redness and conceals acne blemishes, dark circles, and freckling - while controlling oil.


Apply with a small concealer brush for detailed coverage. For best results, apply before mineral makeup, or after liquid makeup. To set makeup in place, apply Mattify Transparent Powder with a fluffy brush.

Long Lasting

Eye Shadow






Always start by inverting your Eye Shadow jar (with lid still attached) and tapping a few times to bring shadow through the sifter holes. Turn jar right side up & then remove lid. Apply with any size eye shadow brush, sponge applicator, or finger tips. See below for various looks you can create.


All of our Mattify Long Lasting Eye Shadows contain the same base as Mattify Original, giving them a built-in primer and crease-free long wear. 


**Any Mattify!  Transparent Powder for Oily Skin (Original, ULTRA or Sensitive) can also be used as an eye shadow primer as additional protection against creasing and smudging.  Just dust it on with a powder brush or powder puff before shadow application for longer lasting eye makeup.  Scroll to bottom of page to see more Mattify!

The Secret to

Long Lasting Makeup?



 Setting Spray

Oily skin causes makeup and foundation to dissolve quickly! Application of a makeup setting spray forms a light barrier to lock products into place, ensuring that high temperatures, oil, perspiration, and exposure to water won't ruin your look. Some quality makeup setting sprays on the market include:  Model in a Bottle Urban Decay All Nighter Ben Nye Final Seal, &  Skindinavia.


If you have oily skin, just be sure to avoid any setting spray labeled “dewy” or “water-based” which will cause your makeup to look sticky.

Ben Nye Makeup Setting Spray for $5.50 at Mattify! Cosmetics.


How to Apply Makeup Setting Spray



1)      Apply all of your makeup as usual, including face powder

2)      Close your eyes and hold the setting spray bottle about 6 inches away from face

3)      Spray once, on the center of your face (make sure eyes are closed!)

4)      Allow to dry for 10-15 seconds before opening your eyes



Additional Tips


  • Those with extremely oily skin might start to show shine after 3-4 hours. However, you can reapply Mattify Powder for Oily Skin over any makeup setting spray (as long as the spray is dry).


  • If you have exceptionally oily skin, or if your face will be exposed to water, try the 4-square application. Visually divide your face into 4 sections, and spray each.

Multi-tasking with


Mattify! Eye Shadows,


Sparkling Bronzer & Highlighter


When you purchase Mattify Eye Makeup, Sparkling Bronzer & Highlighter, you aren’t simply buying one product! Each shadow multi-tasks as a lip gloss, nail polish, or liquid eye liner!



  • To make Nail Polish or Lip Gloss, simply dip your clear nail polish brush or clear lip gloss wand into the powder & apply!



  • To create liquid liner, dampen a skinny liner brush with water & dip into Mattify Eye Shadow to create a smooth line in any color.
  • To dupe this coppery lipstick look, dip a clear gloss wand into Mattify Cosmetic's Lucky Penny Eye Shadow. Sweep onto lips for a perfectly bronzed pout!
