Setting powder does the same thing as using a final mist of hairspray, it locks in the end look! Setting powder is an "invisible" step in your makeup routine that will literally set your face makeup onto skin, to make sure it stays put. "Setting" your makeup basically means keeping everything looking flawless for as long as possible.
Setting powder is one of the few beauty products that can't be applied with your fingers. It definitely needs a brush, and the Face Studio Powder Brush gives the best coverage. It's full and fluffy, to cover lots of ground with every sweep, yet curved and tapered to sweep into all the subtle contours of the face (under eyes, the corners of the nose, along the jaw, etc.)
Our Lasting Fix Banana Powder, Loose Setting Powder Makeup is a translucent powder that you layer over and under liquid makeup (like foundation) to keep everything in place while minimizing shine and oil. Don't worry - it won't add or take away color from your skin or makeup, it's literally invisible. Our Fit Me Loose Finishing Powder also sets makeup, but has a hint of color and coverage to it.
Many powders are designed to cut shine and therefore absorb oil, but dry skin has slightly different needs. Look for a simple, mineral-based loose powder like Lasting Fix Banana Powder or Fit Me Loose Finishing Powder. Both will give skin a poreless, even finish without making it feel dry.
Translucent powder. The original beauty filter for the face! Light and silky, it creates an invisible veil over skin, cutting shine, minimizing pores and leaving skin looking velvety and smooth. It also is the secret to long-lasting, perfect makeup.
Pressed powder is face powder that has been compressed into a compact. Whereas loose powder is literally loose and therefore messy and hard to carry in your purse, pressed powder is just the thing to carry with you at all times for touch-ups on the go.
Finishing powder is just another name for setting and loose powder. It's the finishing touch you dust onto your face after makeup to lock your look in.
Take a big, fluffy face brush and dust it on after you've applied your makeup. Chin, cheeks, forehead, nose—anywhere you want to last long and look flawless. Traditionally, it goes all over the face, but in this era of fresh, dewy skin, strategic powder placement looks more modern. Dot on the nose, or chin, anywhere that tends to gather grease, or where you need coverage to last longer.
Despite its name, the yellow tint of banana powder is actually super-subtle, and works with natural undertones to warm skin up. Important to note: yes, it works on all skin tones. Whereas some loose setting powders can make you look chalky and powdery, especially in the unforgiving flash of a camera, banana powder goes on flatteringly natural-looking.
