In a not-so-surprising twist, matte makeup is back and taking over our Instagram feeds. Don’t expect your favorite beauty gurus to rock perfectly shine-free faces, though.

We’ve rounded up the best matte foundations to try ahead — from the drugstore option with a versatile shade range to the luxe version we’d gladly empty our bank accounts for.
