Powder is in the makeup bag of every girl who looks after herself. It is a kind of powdery mixture of substances that, when applied to the skin, form a light veil. The powder fixes makeup, prolonging the durability of the foundation, absorbs excess sebum and sweat during the day, makes the face velvety and matte, and additionally protects the skin from the negative effects of ultraviolet radiation. How to choose a powder to emphasize the dignity of the face, and not draw attention to the imperfections of the skin and makeup.
When choosing a powder, be guided by your skin type. If your skin is oily, matting or cleansing powders will do. The first contains special micro-sponges and minerals that absorb sebum to keep the face matte longer. The composition of the cleansing powder also includes special extracts that work during the day to cleanse and tighten pores. If you have a dry skin type, powders with moisturizing and protective extracts and vitamins are available for you. If you have a normal skin type, you can choose a classic powder or a moisturizer.
Then decide what texture you prefer. With the help of a compact powder, you will get a denser coverage, it is convenient to use it during the day, correcting makeup, but its shade should match or be half a tone lighter than the foundation. Loose powder, thanks to its light weightless texture, gives the same invisible coverage, creating the effect of invisible makeup, helping to smooth out irregularities after applying foundation, but it is not very convenient to carry it with you, and it will not hide pronounced imperfections on the face.
Also, when choosing a powder, decide what kind of makeup you want to get. If it is a daytime makeup, then the shade should match the skin color or be slightly lighter. It is desirable that the powder for daytime use creates a matte veil on the face. If you choose powder for evening make-up, the option with reflective particles will be appropriate. They will favorably emphasize the prominent areas on the face, making it more sculpted. This powder can be applied to the shoulders, arms, décolleté. To create the effect of tanned skin, a whole series of tanning powders is available, the shade of which can be selected as desired.
And, of course, start from your own skin color. If you have yellowish skin, try a powder with pink pigment, and conversely, for pronounced redness, it is better to use a beige powder. Never choose powder according to the color of your hands - in summer they tan faster, so the tone of the powder on the face may turn out to be darker, and in winter the skin of the hands becomes lighter, since the renewal of the skin due to frequent washing also occurs faster.
