Use These Matte Makeup Essentials to Get Your Ultimate Matte Look!
Looking for makeup that stays on all day, looks bold and chic, and complements every ensemble? Go matte!

Below is a selection of our best makeup products to help you achieve a perfectly matte look.
Your Matte Makeup Look Essentials
A MATTIFYING PRIMER
It’s prime time. Start off your makeup routine with VDL Satin Veil Primer, which instantly blurs pores and fine lines while staving off shine. This matte primer provides the ideal canvas for the rest of your makeup.
AN ALL-DAY FOUNDATION
When you need a flawless foundation, go with Cashmere Complexion Longwear Foundation. This luxe formula glides on for a soft-focus matte finish that lasts for 24 hours. It comes in 30 shades, so there’s a perfect match for every skin tone. For even more coverage, view Avon’s skin-loving foundation collection.
A LONG-LASTING CONCEALER
Get cashmere-soft skin with Cashmere Complexion Longwear Concealer, a richly pigmented formula complete with antioxidants like barley extract and vitamin E. Just like its foundation counterpart, this amazing concealer will mask imperfections for 24 hours.
A CONTOURED FAÇADE
Follow up with Avon True Color Transforming Contour Stick, a double-sided stick with light and dark sides to sculpt and define your face. The light side is great for highlighting, while the dark side creates shadows. Contour your features to enhance your natural beauty.
A BOLD CAT EYE
Accentuate your eyes with a swipe of Mega Effects Liquid Eye Liner. Try a classic cat eye, which is always in style. This black liquid eye liner creates a bold and striking effect, which is what going matte is all about. For more ways to draw the line, discover Avon’s eye liner collection.

Choose from 8 notice-me shades—from bright red to dramatically dark purple—and maintain a vibrant pout for hours. For more to pout about, view Avon’s lipstick collection.
A SETTING POWDER
Polish off your matte look with Magix Dust Finishing Powder, which seals in makeup for a flawless finish. This weightless mineral powder diffuses light, visibly blurs pores, controls shine and blends effortlessly to create a naturally glowing soft matte finish.
These are Avon’s best beauty products that will help you achieve a chic matte makeup look! Try all of them at once for a modern, yet classic effect that lasts all day.
