Guaranteed you’re currently making this *major* mistake
There’s nothing worse than looking in the mirror around midday and seeing that glistening/annoying/goddamn-heartbreaking shine on your T-zone. Right when you thought your makeup situation was looking pretty strong.
The good news? We’ve just been blessed with a little insider secret that may just turn out to be the best skin care trick you’ve ever heard.
In a recent behind-the-scenes video with Harper's Bazaar US, actress and forever-flawless Priyanka Chopra opened up her little black book to share “all the people and practices that help me live a beautiful life.”
One of the main weapons she has for glowing skin? Celebrity makeup artist Pati Dubroff, who let us all in on a clever trick we needed to know, like, yesterday.
Dubroff only pats moisturiser on the areas where Priyanka needs it - the outer edges of her face. Why? Dubroff says, “You don't want a shiny centre, so moisturiser on the perimeter of the face. Hydration in the areas where you want the glowiness.”
So. Damn. Simple.
She then reaches for a mattifying primer, which she applies along Priyanka’s T-zone and the centre of her face. “Mattification in the centre, where you're going to want to be more matte, but you don't want to use a lot of powder, because powder is so ageing,” she explains.
So, after years of lapping on moisturiser and wondering why the heck our skin was so shiny post-makeup, turns out we simply need only moisturise around the edges of the face. Voilà!
Look at you, all shine-free and stuff!
