Powder Foundation Makeup...

There are so many different Powder Foundation Makeup varieties, with such a vast array of products on the market, its hard to figure out which one is best. Powder serves two major purposes, it's used to control shine, and set foundation. It prevents the foundation from slipping into fines, or wearing off.

What powder you like depends on what look you want to achieve, here are some of the most popular types...

A Translucent Powder, is colorless and can be used on everyone. Its great for setting your concealer around the nose, and under the eyes.

Pigmented Powder Creates a fresh, clean look, and can be used alone. If using it to set a foundation, use a shade that is one shade lighter than the foundation, if not your skin will look patchy, with darker spots.

One of my favorites is Powder Foundation, this one gives you full coverage, a satin finish, while keeping the shine under control. If your skin is acne prone, use one that is oil free and non acnegenic.

Loose Powder is sheer, while a Pressed Powder is more opaque. Apply a pressed powder with a fluffy brush. A pressed powder can be applied with either a brush or a sponge.
