Do you know what face powder can keep the face matte but not too matte? Just enough to set the face and still keep the face shining? I luvluv your blog btw xx
First i’d suggest only powdering the t zone so you’re more matte where you need it keeping the rest of the face more dewy/radiant.
I’d recommend translucent powder! Translucent powders actually keep me shine free longer than regular pressed/tinted powders and they look extremely natural over foundation (or alone). Since translucent powders are so finely milled they go on like silk and make your skin look like silk, NEVER cakey! Awesome for oily skin gals who want to set their foundation without looking too dull or powdery. Also great for any skin type even dry because it really blurs imperfections making your face look extra flawless.
Try translucent powders like
- Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Translucent
- Tarte Amazonian Clay Smooth Operator Finishing Powder
- MAC Prep & Prime Transparent Powder
- Makeup Forever HD Powder
- Laura Mercier Translucent Powder (slightly tinted, great for deeper skin toned complexions)
The only downside is they provide no extra coverage as they are white and go on colorless so if you use powder for a little extra coverage it might not be for you so check out some natural looking mattifying powders like
- Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
- MAC Blot Powder
- Clinique Stay Matte Sheer Pressed Powder
- Maybelline Fit Me Powder
Also p.s, don’t apply too much if you plan to be taking pictures with flash because they can make your face look white in pictures. Apply a thin layer or avoid using all together prior to taking pictures with flash.
