Take it from the professionals a top-notch setting powder is a non-negotiable must-have in any makeup kit especially in the summer when heat and humidity can ruin a makeup look before itx27s even done. quotSetting your makeup is one of the most important steps of makeupquot New York City makeup artist Delina Medhin tells Allure. quotWhen you set the makeup it has longevity. who wants to carry a touch-up kit everywherequot
Even if you prefer dewy looks over matte ones setting powder applied strategically can absorb excess oil and keep products in place longer according to Medhin. But oil absorption and longevity arenx27t the only things setting powders are good for according to fellow New York City makeup artist Tommy. quotSetting powder is not only used to lock in your makeup but to x27finishx27 the look of makeup to create a smoother more poreless and textureless surfacequot he explains.
Both artists agree that when it comes to powders the less-is-more approach is best. quotThis gives you more control of the productquot Medhin says. quotPlace your brush in the powder then tap it off until it looks like nothing is left on the brush then keep applying until you get to your desired matte look.quot Tommy adds focusing powder to the forehead nose chin and the sides of the mouth can quothelp to mitigate any excess shine or oil breakthrough that can lead to a porous look.quot

Ix27ve got super oilybut dehydratedskin so Ix27m constantly dealing with a complexion that somehow looks greasy and dry at the same time. This is the only drugstore powder that manages to put both issues to rest. Ix27ve found the trick is to press it in with a makeup puff instead of swirling it on with a brush which leaves behind a blurred your-skin-but-better finish that looks flawless both in real life and photos. L.S.

Ive tried a lot of loose powders before and they all either make my skin look blotchy or go on white and make me look like a ghost. This does neither It applies flawlessly and keeps my oily pores at bay but not to the point that my skin produces more oil. Also Jackie Aina loves it.

For someone who just started dabbling with setting powders I really enjoyed this one from Neutrogena. The shade range isnx27t as robust as some other brandsx27 but itx27s still a great starter product since the pressed powder makes it easy to control the amount you applyespecially for smaller coverage areas like under your eyes. Plus for someone who has dry skin itx27s formulated with hydrating and brightening antioxidants like vitamin B5 and vitamins C and E. T.A.

I have combination skin so its tricky to find a powder that can mattify any shine I may be dealing with without it clinging to dry patches. Most mattifying powders are way too cakey and more luminous ones make me look too slick. Then I came across this Nars powder. Itx27s hefty enough to soak up any lurking oil yet so finely milled that it takes a lot to overdo it and look powdery. Although its described as light-reflecting therex27s no visible shimmerit just has a natural finish that makes my skin look airbrushed which is always the goal. Isabella Cacciatore beauty associate
