Make up Powder
Enrich your make-up routine with Skins make up powder
To fix the base of your make-up and ensure it stays perfectly in place throughout the day, our Skins Experts recommend a make up powder. With the right make up powder, you can mattify shiny skin, make pores appear optically smaller and create a smooth and even complexion. At Skins you will find numerous types of make-up powder, ranging from loose powders to compact powders and from light to full coverage formulas. When choosing a powder, the first thing to consider is always your complexion, your needs and your skin type.
These types of make up powder there are
You can find different types of make up powder, each with their own unique benefits and features. A loose make up powder is a light, fine powder that is great for setting liquid foundation and concealer and mattifying the skin. It can also be used to touch up maquillage during the day. Compact make up powder has a pressed formula and this makes it easy to take with you on the go. Ideal for a quick touch-up.
If you have sensitive skin, a mineral make up powder may be the way to go. These formulas often contain natural ingredients and are free of harmful ingredients like silicones and fragrances and dyes. Finally, a transparent make up powder is a colourless powder that can be used to mattify. This type of powder is ideal to use throughout the year and this means you don't necessarily need to buy a new colour each season.
Which brand of make up powder suits me?
Of course, you are always welcome in a Skins boutique, to get proper advice on your purchase. But a few types of make up powder is always good to have in your collection. Consider Laura Mercier's iconic Translucent Setting Powder. This is an international bestseller and gives an insane, blurring effect. With this, it looks like you are wearing an Instagram filter on your face. The non-greasy, transparent formula can be used with any skin type and colour and reflects light for a radiant effect.
Another great option for make up powder is Westman Atelier's Vital Pressed Skincare Powder. In it, founder Gucci Westman combines the caring ingredients of skincare with the fixing, smoothing properties of a powder. If you have skin that is prone to shine, Rae Morris' Invisible Mattifyer is essential. You can apply this antibacterial formula beautifully over your base during the day, without creating an extra layer in the process. In addition, it leaves skin mattified for up to three times longer. A real must-have for your make-up bag.
How do I apply make up powder?
You usually apply a powder with a make-up brush, or by dabbing with a sponge. Skins Expert tip: always apply face powder as little as possible straight under the eyes, because this can accentuate fine lines faster.
