Powder is an important component of machining. It’s also something that we use in body care every day, especially in humid and hot weather.
Loose face powder allows the skin surface to be shown in colour. These are available in a variety of colors to suit different skin tones and provide the make-up with a smooth, matt (non-shiny) finish. The powder on the face will be one shade lighter than the paint. Choosing the right pressed powder is finer and solider than loose powder. Pressed powders often come in various shades.
Like most Indian skin tones, beige shades do go well. Some peach shades look fantastic too. Consider pink colors for a savory and more yellowish skin tone, but ideal for very fair skin. Trial and error helps to find the right tone of colour.
In makeup, powder falls after foundation has been added. To offer a smooth finish it helps to ‘set’ the foundations. In our hot and humid environment, powder for daytime make-up can be added on its own, without base. Carry in your handbag some wet tissues and a compact powder, to clean the skin during the season.
Using a powder puff add loose powder after base. Upon dabbing it powder press the puff and push it in a downward and then outward motion on your forehead. Should not use a push to the up. Especially so when facial hair is present because it will make them stand up. So push and roll slightly outwards and downwards. Be careful not to add too much, particularly near the eyes, because powder tends to settle close to the eyes in the tiny lines. Brush off excess cotton-wool hair.
How about buying the right pressed powder for dry skin
It doesn’t matter what the label says, powders don’t humidify. That is why a lot of dry skin people choose not to use it. We are afraid that powder will accentuate any dry patch and fine line on their skin that they have. Of course the wrong powder will do that. The trick is to select a powder with a satiny texture that is almost creamy. While not moisturizing, they are not as drying as other powder types, and a better choice for your type of skin.
A lightweight powder is very handy to touch up your make-up, and is very easy to bring around in your handbag. Often, it can be enough to reach the nose and mouth. A lightweight powder may also be used in hot weather, instead of base. In the middle of a hot summer day, you should change your face, ensuring that you have not applied the base. Wipe the face out of your compressed powder with wet tissue or cleaning pad and then add the pressed powder. You’ll look and feel good in no time.
