Finishing powder is like photo shopping your face, but in real life. It is of the most overlooked beauty products but we’d argue it should be in your Top 3 beauty products.
Finishing powder provides an invisible way to set make-up, leaving skin looking silky by blurring the look of pores, lines, imperfections and shine. It leaves a gorgeous velvety sheen that lasts all day. Finishing powders are generally one colour, white, but once applied are completely invisible boosting the look of your skin.
To get the best use out of your finishing powder, use it once you’ve put on any foundation, concealer and setting powder, or add it on top of just your moisturiser if going for a very natural look. Use a big fluffy brush, dip into the loose powder then start buffing the powder into the centre of your face, working your way out to the edges. Make sure there isn’t any extra powder sitting on the surface of your skin or it can appear white in camera flashes – gross!
