I know I skipped last Saturday but, hey, hello, human here! This favorite topic for this week is all about powders.
I have normal to dry skin so finding a powder that doesn’t make me look like the Arizona desert on my face is crucial.
The first one that is so very loved and I have it on repeat is the NYX HD Finishing Powder in Banana. I use this powder for under my eyes and in my T-Zone. Sometimes, if I know that I am going to dealing with photographs, I will just use it on my entire face. It is brightening and a little bit goes a long way.
My next daily love is the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Illumination pressed powder. This powder gives off a flawless finish and really smooths the skin. I received it as a sample and have purchased two more since then! The only negative thing I have found is that it does not travel well, even in a carry on. I do have the loose powder in the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores and I do love it just as much but I really am a pressed powder girl.
The Essence All About Matt powder is also a staple and it is a good replacement for the IT Bye Bye Pores pressed foundation when traveling. And, it is super cheap! I don’t use it daily but I do take it with me in my bag for work to touch up during the day and while I travel.
I don’t use the Bare Minerals Mineral Veil Powder a ton anymore but it is still a favorite. It has a tone of flash back but it does leave a beautiful finish on the skin. Sometimes when I know I have to stay in my makeup for a long time, this powder really helps to extend the life on it.
All of these powders are lovely and they all do different things that I love. The beauty about them is that they last forever and don’t cost me the price of my 13 year old child. What are your favorite powders?
