If you’re not using a translucent powder in your makeup routine, then you’re seriously missing out (especially if you have oily skin!) A setting powder is an absolute MUST for mattifying shine, smoothing pores and keeping your makeup in place. Some of the best ones can be pricey (this one is worth every penny), but if you’re on a budget, I’ve got you covered with this affordable setting powder. Meet the Covergirl Professional Loose Powder. It’s $6 bucks and yes, it actually works!
HOW TO USE SETTING POWDER:
Dampen a beauty blender with some water (a damp beauty blender is best for locking your makeup in and works better than a brush or dry beauty blender!)
Fully coat a beauty blender with the loose powder
If you have normal to dry skin:
After applying foundation and concealer, set your makeup by pressing the loose powder on your under-eye and T-zone areas (forehead, nose & chin.)
If you have oily skin:
Use the loose powder to set your entire face (this will lock your foundation in for hours and keep your oily skin in check.)
Using setting powder is great for keeping your makeup shine-free for hours. Do you guys use setting powder?
