Makeup Powders - one of the most important products to any makeup artist

Uses of makeup powders

1. It gives a super smooth sheen to your skin.
2. It sets the rest of your makeup so that it will last longer.
3. It can make all products stay in place whether they are cream based or shadows and pencils.
4. It absorbs oil and prevents shine.

Types of makeup powders

Loose Powder
Loose powder is almost always the choice of the
professional. It is especially good if used in the
morning to set your makeup, as it will keep you
makeup looking fresh all day.

Pressed Powder
Pressed powders are easy to carry around so they are good for touching up your makeup during the day. Most compact powders come with a sponge but you will get a better finish if you apply it using a powder brush.

Choosing makeup powder according to your skin type

If you have normal to oily skin then it is best to use a translucent loose powder, as it will absorb any excess oil. If your skin is dry then a pressed powder would be good for you, as it will add moisture.

Applying Makeup Powder

Before applying powder make sure that there are no lines or creases in your makeup; once you have put powder over them they will stay put. If your face is very moist blot it with a tissue first or your powder will clump.

Apply powder by sweeping a large powder brush downwards and outwards. If you brush upwards the small hairs on your face will stand up and make the rest of your makeup look fuzzy. If you have applied too much eyeshadow or blusher dust a light layer of powder over the top to soften the colour.
