No matter how well I prepare, New York Fashion Week means stress, and stress means breaking out in a shiny sweat all over my face. I don't wear foundation (and certainly not powder) most days, but during Fashion Week, I've been using Benefit's mattifying face powder as a shine preventative.
Not only is it 100 percent effective -- so far, a quick dusting in the morning has kept my face matte all day -- but it's so lightweight, I can't even feel it's there. It also has a convenient little brush applicator so that I'll be able to carry and apply it during the longer and even more jam-packed show days in London.
Benefit Cosmetics Porefessional Agent Zero Shine Powder, $30, available at Sephora.
