Anyone who loves makeup knows the importance of powder in their arsenal. We use it to set our concealer and touch up when our face gets shiny midday. It can also be used to brighten up certain areas of your face.
Of course, the beauty industry also came up with other ways to use powder. You can now find powdered versions of makeup staples. You can say it makes application for some products a little easier and it’s more compact. But it still depends on user preference. Check out what we found and how they can work for your daily beauty routine.
We’re all familiar with powder foundations but it’s still worth noting how quick-to-use they are. If you don’t feel like wearing a layer of liquid foundation on your face, pat on this Fit Me Matte Poreless Powder. It’s perfect for days you want to keep the shine away without looking too cakey. Fair warning though that this has a light coverage, so only use this when you want a natural look. Available at select Watson’s stores.
Can you even get pigment out of powdered lipstick? Apparently, you can. If you watched Tati Westbrook and Laura Lee‘s reviews, you’ll see how the powder transforms into a cream lipstick once applied. The result is a pigmented lip color that’s not too glossy and feels lightweight. Available on Amazon.
For a light, barely-there tint, go for L’Oreal’s Color Riche Tint Caresse. This lipstick is made with refined powder, and it’s the perfect product to use if you want to do an ombré or popsicle lip. Just concentrate the product in the middle of your lips to achieve the effect. Available at select Watson’s stores.
The best way to use loose pigment eyeshadows is to dampen your eyeshadow brush and pat the color on your lids. BH Cosmetics allows you to build it up from sheer to dramatic hues. Available online.
Who knew powder can also serve as sunscreen? Considered as an extra layer of protection, you can brush on this Supergoop! setting powder on top of your makeup. It has SPF 45 and it’s sweat resistant, so you don’t have to worry about it melting off your face. Available on Sephora PH.
This matcha and green tea mask will provide antioxidants, which revitalize the skin and give a smooth texture. You only need to mix two teaspoons of the powder and water in a bowl, and you’ll get a creamy mixture for your mask. Just make sure you don’t msitake this to your drinkable matcha powder at home. Available at SM Makati.
