Loose Face Powder
Once you've applied your favourite base or foundation make up, you might think that your work is done, but there's a reason that professional makeup artists always use a loose face powder after foundation to help set make up.
Powder adds a final touch to your look and leaves you looking and feeling more 'polished' and put together. It also helps to make sure that your foundation lasts for longer and prevents it from running, smudging or transferring. You can also get a loose face powder that is environmentally friendly, or even natural vegan face powder .
Using loose face powder to set your look makes you look more radiant, especially if you use a gold loose powder . The light reflecting ingredients in the powder helps to diffuse light and give you a healthy glow. A good quality powder makes your pores less obvious, and makes the rest of your make up look fresher by mopping up excess oil and blotting it.
Using a loose face powder instead of a pressed powder gives your skin a nice smooth texture and shimmer as well as softening the effect of foundation. A loose powder can be applied with a make up brush, although many products come with their own compact and applicator that's just as good.
How to apply loose powder
If your skin is dry, apply loose face powder after you've applied foundation, and only very lightly around your eyes or any other especially dry areas. Brush any excess powder away.
If you have oily skin you may need to layer on more powder around your T-zone (forehead, nose and chin) or anywhere else you're oilier.
Sheer look powder and matte look powder
You can change the way you look by opting for a different type of loose powder. If you want to get a youthful effect, try a sheer loose powder.
For a finely textured, porcelain finish, a matte effect powder will give you the look you want.
