With changing seasons come changing styles. From rompers to cardigans and from pastels to warm tones, the styles are shifting. And that probably includes your makeup game, too. While dewy make still be your jam — and it is gorgeous — these 11 matte foundations for fall will help you embrace a different look for colder weather.
While makeup is unmistakably an individual choice, tons of beauty lovers associate colder weather with a fuller coverage and matte finish. Why? Not to be too real but sweat is a fact in the summer. No one wants their gorgeously full coverage and matte look to melt off their face throughout the day. Plus, if you're going to look naturally dewy thanks to the weather, why not totally embrace glowing skin in the summer? Now, however, fans of beauty can start making the switch — if they so choose.
With beauty ever evolving and new products debuting left and right, there seems to be a lot to choose from when it comes to your base. From full or medium coverage to stick formulas or creams, options are practically endless. If you're thinking of trying something new, though, these 11 matte foundations are a great place to start. With solid drugstore finds and luxury products if you feel like a splurge, you can find the perfect matte foundation for you.
1. Urban Decay All Nighter Liquid Foundation
Urban Decay was not messing around when they introduced the All Nighter Foundation. While you may be familiar with the setting spray of the same name, the foundation is meant to be ultra-long wearing. And it's coverage is about as full as you can get without using Dermacol. While MannyMUA's skin type may not have been suited to this foundation, he still recommended it.
2. Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless
The Fit Me Matte + Poreless foundation is designed to do exactly what it says: blur your pores and give you a matte finish. For those with dry skin, this foundation may not be best, but for oily ladies, this affordable foundation is a must.
3. Fenty Beauty Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation
If you haven't tried Fenty Beauty's foundation, you're missing out. This medium to full, buildable foundation is truly like a filter for your face. If you've got dry skin, be sure to hardcore prep your skin before application, but with stellar reviews from pretty much every blogger on the planet, this is a product everyone should and can — woo! for 40 shades — try.
4. L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte 24Hour Foundation
L'Oreal Infallible series is one of the best in drugstore beauty. From the Pro Glow to the original Infallible, YouTube beauty gurus swear by this product. With a medium to full level of coverage and demi-matte finish, anyone can rock this foundation. Plus, it made it into Tati's favorite L'Oreal products, and who doesn't trust Tati?

6. Milani 2-in-1 Conceal & Perfect Foundation + Concealer
Milani 2-1 Conceal and Perfect Foundation, $10, Milani
Another hit with YouTube gurus? The Milani 2-in-1. This full coverage beauty works as both a foundation and concealer — hence its name. Who doesn't love an all-in-one product? Jaclyn Hill certainly does.
7. Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation
The Kat Von D foundation has one of the largest shade ranges at Sephora, and it definitely deserves a try. While an argument can be made that it's too matte, if you love the look, it's ideal. However, keep in mind that according to Erin Scott, the foundation is definitely not long wearing.
8. Revlon ColorStay Makeup
Revlon ColorStay is a cult classic drugstore foundation, and if you're looking for an affordable must-have, it's the way to go. With buildable full coverage and long wearing formula, you can't miss it.
9. Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup
When it comes to luxury brands, Estee Lauder's Double Wear may be the most well-known for stopping oil and keeping makeup lovers matte. This long wearing foundation is another favorite. It's got 170,000 reviews and nearly five stars on Sephora. Plus, it's part of Amanda Ensing's full coverage routine.
10. BECCA Cosmetics Ever-Matte Shine Proof Foundation
If you don't want to embrace full coverage, BECCA's medium coverage but ultra-matte foundation will be perfect for you. If you don't trust word of mouth, trust Wayne Goss.
