Powerful Powders for Your Every Makeup NeedDecember 12, 2018
Powder is a wonderfully versatile makeup and skincare format that has extra benefits over its liquid counterparts. It’s lightweight, buildable, blendable, it can change form and consistency, and it’s great for travel. Check out a full range of example powder products below – some of which are traditionally liquid or gel – and see what makes them a powerful asset to your makeup and skincare arsenal.
Don’t have time to wash your hair? Craving that second-day hair effect but want to enhance it a bit? Sachajuan’s Dry Powder Shampoo is a volumizing shampoo that comes in a spray format. Does some of this sound wrong? On the contrary: there is so much right with the matte finish, bouncy look and feel, and styling abilities that comes with this dry spray. Cover all traces of oils and dirt in-between washes with this lightweight powder.
Powder continues to show up in surprising places with cleanser. Gulsha’s Purifying Rose Dust cleanses and exfoliates when you add water. It melts into a creamy application that buffs away dead skin cells and impurities, while protecting from free radical damage with antioxidant power. Pink clay draws out dirt and extra oil from pores to leave glowing skin for all skin types.
You’re likely familiar with this standard and popular powder that can provide a range of coverage in pressed and loose forms. If you’re usually a liquid foundation fan, you need to try IT Cosmetics Celebration Foundation instead: it will convert you to loving powder. It’s full-coverage with anti-aging effects that hydrates. It won’t crack or crease unlike other drying powders. This light and silky vitamin-packed formula feels natural and provides a flawless finish.
Powder lip colour? It’s fantastically true: Cle Cosmetics’ Melting Lip Powder transforms into a long-wearing, matte lip tint that’s totally unique. It also doubles as an eye shadow or blush! Plus, it’s waterproof and won’t smudge, run, or rub off. Keep lips surprisingly supple and moist with this melting powder formula.
Another classic application and true makeup companion, a powdered blush is appreciated for its buildable and blendable properties. IT Cosmetics’ Bye Bye Pores Blush™ also refines pores and minimizes their appearance. Brighten your complexion with a selection of universal shades with anti-aging components of collagen, antioxidants, and peptides.
Powder Finishing Touches
Not sure if you need a bronzer, highlighter, or setting powder? Why not have all three at your brush and sponge tips with Kevyn Aucoin’s The Neo-Trio Palette. It’s great for travel and provides versatile choices between three powder finishes. All three are formulated with light-diffusing pigments for pure luminosity anywhere.
Last-but-not-least! Another classic powder product that provides ease of use, has buildable colour pigments, and can be blended and corrected with ease. Smith & Cult’s Book of Eyes Eye Quad Palette has four complementary shades to complete a full look or to wear as singles or doubles for a more stripped-down effect. They’re creamy, metallic, and provide a gorgeous translucent shimmer that lasts through the day or night. What’s best is they won’t crease, flake, or melt off, so don’t worry about getting bold glimmer anywhere but exactly where you want it.
