What is setting powder?
Face powder is the final step of your face makeup routine. It locks everything in place, blurs fine lines and diffuses light to help your skin achieve that coveted natural-looking glow. Applying a setting powder or loose translucent powder on top of your liquid foundation creates a bond that makes your foundation last longer and makes sure your liquid products won't budge.
What is pressed powder?
A pressed powder, or powder compact foundation, offers a mess-free, lighter coverage alternative to liquid foundation as well as providing a good on-the-go touch-up option.
How to use setting powder
After completing your skincare routine, apply your makeup starting with your liquid products. Next, apply a light dusting of your Lancôme loose powder or finishing powder, such as the Absolue Sublime Radiance Smoothing Powder all over the face to blur imperfections and lock everything in place. Use a soft full face brush, like the Lush Full Face No5 Powder Brush, to apply loose and pressed powders for a luxurious, even and smooth application. Then, apply any other powder products, like blushes, bronzers or highlighters before running your face powder brush gently over your face again to lock it all in. Reapply your powder throughout the day as needed to keep oil at bay.
Is face powder suitable for my skin type?
While face powder is often used by those who lean towards an oily skin type for its mattifying and oil control benefits, face powder is actually suitable for all skin types.
For those with dry skin, applying a light layer on top of your liquid foundation can help create an extra barrier between your skin and external elements.
If your skin is sensitive, opt for a powder foundation like the Teint Idole Ultra Compact Powder Foundation which includes SPF15 and provides a gorgeous matte finish that lasts for hours, without sacrificing comfort or breathability.
