For many, the powder is an absolute must in the makeup bag – but which powder to choose depends on what you are looking for results and what type of skin you have. We help you get the best powder for you and your skin type.
Here are our top tips for finding the best makeup powder for you.
For normal to dry skin
Brightening powder has small shimmer particles that give the skin a discreet glow. It is not a matter of looking like a glitter bomb in the entire face (although it can be nice sometimes too), but giving an impression of freshness and glow. Apply a thin layer throughout the face with a large brush and go out and meet the day!
Powder that makes your skin matte
For mixed or oily skin
Everyone with an overproduction of oil in the skin knows how sad it can be to be constantly glossy in the wrong places, often in the T zone (forehead, nose, chin). And it’s not the type of glow that you necessarily want. This is when a matte blotting powder comes to the rescue. A matte powder makes your skin matte and soaks up the oil in the skin. Perfect to have in your purse and improve makeup during the day.
For all skin types
Together with a good foundation, the fixation powder becomes your best friend. A fixing powder, in loose or solid form, you can wipe all over the face with a fluffy brush. It fixes the base and ensures that the makeup lasts longer. If you want to invest in the trendy “baking” method, this is also a fixation powder perfect. Apply a large amount of loose powder with a dense brush or makeup sponge under, for example, cheekbones or eyes. Let sit until you are done with the rest of the makeup and then brush away the excess, for an enlightening effect.
