Posted: Updated:

Looking for a way to dull down that summer shine? I'll show you how to maintain a matte look on even the hottest day.

(To watch the full makeover -- How to Get the Kim Kardashian Look -- please click here.)

Apply a Primer Moisturizer with Astaxanthin all over your face using a latex free sponge. By using a moisturizer with Astaxanthin you not only hydrate your skin, but also provide your skin a natural sun protection equivalent to an SPF 20 without the chemicals.

Tip: If you are applying a moisturizer or a cream product on someone else it's a good idea to apply the cream on to a metal palette first and then apply it on the client/friend's face. Try to use a Latex-free sponge as some people can be very allergic to latex; the correct tools can make all the difference in obtaining the ideal application!

Using a different sponge apply a Mattifying Anti-Shine Gel to your forehead, nose, and anywhere else you may have shine. Be sure to shake the tube before applying. You can also apply this gel on your eyelids to avoid creasing on the lids due to oiliness.

When choosing an Antishine product, look for a brand that has a little tint, so when it dries it will not leave an unusual film on your skin. EVE PEARL's Anti-Shine Mattifying Gel comes in two shades; A for light to medium skin, B for tan to dark skin.

Whether your skin is dry or oily, the Primer/Moisturizer should go on your skin before the Anti-Shine gel is applied. Remember, a good base on your skin will ensure your makeup stays on and your skin looks good throughout the day.
