How to Avoid a Chalky Finish Using Loose Translucent Powder Woman Getting Face Powder Applied
 You might have a more natural finish opting for a slight tint to that powder. 


I have always used translucent loose powder to set my foundation.  After all, it is meant to be colorless so not to distract from the color of the foundation that you use.  However, I also have noticed that some brands can leave your face paler than others with almost a ghostly cast once you’re through applying. This can present a problem unless you want to keep on switching out brands.  Then it dawned on me that the product wasn’t the problem, only the color of the “colorless” white cast it can create.  However, I have found a better way around that little obstacle to avoid chalkiness using translucent loose powder solution for setting your foundation that I wanted to share.

So what’s my secret?  The answer is surprisingly simple.  Instead of buying just a colorless shade, I opted for a lightly tinted loose powder in its place.  By doing so, I get a much better finish without that unnatural paleness.  Furthermore, this slight amount of extra color does not do anything much to alter my original foundation color.

If you also have encountered this problem with your translucent powder, I hope you try this tip because a little color to that loose powder will give you a more natural look.
