Sunday Rest: mattify. Word Not To Use Today.

I wish there were a better word which means to take the shine off the skin by covering it with cosmetics.

But, as far as I know, there isn't.

I don't know, though...

…deglaze? 

After all, why should the roasting dishes have all the best words?

Sunday Rest: mattify. To make things even worse, the word mat, meaning non-shiny, comes via French from the Arabic word māt. In both these languages it means dead.

Glaze is basically the same word as glass.
