How to Apply Powder Foundation Like a Pro
These tips will make powder foundation look good on all skin types.
We get it — liquid foundation isn’t everyone’s go-to for a flawless face, and if it isn’t for you, you might feel like there aren’t enough light to medium coverage foundation options out there. And we can attest that if you have oily skin, you should be opting for a powder foundation that absorbs oil and gives you a fresh matte look. But if you have dry or combination skin you might shy away from this lightweight option for fear that it will appear cakey or heavy.
Start With Moisturizing the Skin
Prepping the skin for powder foundation is a must so start by applying a thin layer of moisturizer onto clean skin. Moisturized skin will grab on to powder, leading to a longer-lasting, seamless makeup look.
Use a Blush Brush
When it comes to applying a powder, your traditional foundation brush may not be the best pick. Rather, a blush brush has a wider circumference that allows you to seamlessly blend your powder foundation around the nose, chin and hairline with ease.
Remove Oil From the Skin Before You Touch Up
Throughout the day, if you need to touch up, take a dry sponge or blotting paper and absorb spots of oil on the face before applying another layer of your powder foundation.
