Default Recommendations for a matte makeup?

I'd like to try a matte foundation because I know from painting my apartment that matte paint hides flaws better than shiny, (semi-matte or satin finish) paint. When I have tried some of the foundations for "aging" skin, they aren't matte - they have that light dispersing or light reflecting finish which looks shiny on me, and I don't think it hides imperfections as well as a matte finish would. I think it's a selling gimmick. (My skin is very good for my age, (not being boastful, just want to be frank) but I have quite a few freckles and some age spots which I am treating with renova.

Any suggestions? I can use a moisturizer underneath if it is too dry. It is the matte finish I am after and good coverage. I need a light ivory-ish color. Thanks!
2/c and some 3A. Modified CG.
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Conditioners: Curl Junkie Beauticurls Strengthening Conditioner,
Deep condish: Curl Junkie Curl Rehab
Stylers: Experimenting with cones & sulfates while the dews are high. Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift
