The temperatures are rising and summer is just around the corner. It’s time for those sebaceous glands to kick in to overdrive, leaving us with shiny T-Zone’s and some less than flattering makeup moments. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Using powder to touch-up your makeup can eliminate shine. Powder isn’t for grandma’s and pre-teens. The days of that caked up, velvety look are over. Keep these tips in mind for a powder perfect look.
- Use powder strategically! Celebrity makeup artist, Sam Fine, suggest that you apply powder only to the areas that need it. This is especially true when working with mature skin. This means that if your t-zone is where you shine the most, this is where you use powder, preferably with a wedge sponge or soft brushstroke.
- After applying foundation, blot your skin with a tissue to remove excess oil before applying powder. Less oil at the start, means less oil at the finish.
- Use a light touch. Since powder is applied after your blush and shadow, too much can cover up the look you’ve created. So apply lightly. Keep in mind that pressed powders have more pigment than loose powders, so apply with light strokes.
- As with your foundation and color, the key to powder application is: blend, blend, blend!
