Let's Talk About Powder.
We have already talked about the foundation and concealer; now is the time for powder.
Powder is really a must-have in any makeup kit because it is really multi-functional. It will give a smooth satin finish to your skin, it sets your foundation and concealer so they will last longer, and it absorbs oils and shine.
Powder comes in various forms such as loose and pressed, and it is entirely up to you which one to use. If you want to set your makeup in the morning, loose powder will work perfectly because it keeps it all looking natural and with a satin finish. If you want to retouch your makeup during the day, pressed is better because it comes in a compact presentation and is easy to carry around.
Also, if you have normal to oily skin, it is best to use loose powders because they absorb oils, while pressed are great for dry skin because they add a little moisture.
There are a lot of ways to apply it. You can apply it with a powder brush, which is frequently dense and really big, a flat brush, which will give you higher coverage, or a powder puff, which will make your makeup last a little longer.
Before applying powder, remember to blot your skin with a blotting-sheet or a tissue if you have oily or moist skin; otherwise your powder will look clumpy.
In the next tutorial we will be covering blush and bronzer.
