Translucent Powder & Makeup Setting Powder | Maybelline

TRANSLUCENT POWDER

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. Learn when, where and how to use it here!

WHAT'S OUR BEST TRANSLUCENT POWDER?

We have several loose powders in our lineup, but only one true translucent powder option: FaceStudio Lasting Fix Setting + Perfecting Loose Powder!

MAYBELLINE'S BEST TRANSLUCENT POWDER

Introducing Lasting Fix Setting + Perfecting Loose Powder. The secret to smooth, shine-free skin that lasts throughout the day!

IS TRANSLUCENT POWDER FOR ALL SKIN TONES?

This top-rated powder works on all skin tones - even though it looks white in the pot, it will go on clear - and, dusted over your makeup, literally locks your face in for better, longer wear.

HOW TO APPLY TRANSLUCENT POWDER?

The best way to apply loose, translucent powder is definitely with a big fluffy brush: dip it into the powder, tap off excess and whisk all over your face, with a focus on your forehead, cheeks and chin. If you want to apply it to strategic spots, press it into skin with a makeup sponge, then dust away excess with a clean powder brush.

Beauty trick: Makeup artists often apply translucent power before dusting on powder blushes and bronzers to create a smooth, velvety base for the color to “cling” to.

CAN YOU WEAR TRANSLUCENT POWDER BY ITSELF?

Traditionally, translucent powder is applied right after your foundation, to set it and make it last longer. But we’re not about makeup rules, and we say you can use it whenever you want, foundation or not. Whisked on top of bare skin, it cuts shine, evens out skin tone and gives the face a natural yet polished feel.

OTHER SETTING POWDER OPTIONS?

Looking for powder with a hint of tint? Lasting Fix Banana Powder is a skin-warming spin on traditional translucent powder--it works in the same way, but has a flattering, warm tint to it that works great on all skin tones. Our Fit Me Loose Finishing Powder is the most “makeup”-like option. It also helps set your makeup, but comes in eight complexion-matching shades and offers a hint of skin-tone-evening coverage.
