Back in the 90’s it was all about matte finishes.  For a long time, I too thought that this was the way to go to achieve a clean and flawless base.

Luckily, with the new light foundations and powders that give skin a luminous glow, there came bronzers and highlighters too for a more defined look, adding contour and light just to the right places.
