|Face powder in pressed and loose form can be indispensable!|
A wonderful face powder can be the finishing touch to your makeup to keep it lasting longer. It also can help keep a shine away or add a bit of color, if need be.
Yet, with all the countless brands to choose from, it often can be confusing trying to narrow your choices down. However, what I’m about to share will help you make a better decision with a few tips on what to look for when considering a new face powder.
Though online shopping is convenient, this requires in person shopping. Once you experience what the face powder is like as far as color, brand and price goes, then the next time feel free to order the same powder online without worrying if you wasted your money.
The first thing that you want to look for is the powder’s coverage. The one that you’re considering should apply evenly over your face instead of noticing the color sticking to some spots more than others. An ideal powder also shouldn’t fly everywhere. It should adhere to your face like a smooth veil.
Just as important, you need to examine the texture with your fingers to test the amount of slip it has. The best ones are silky and feel extremely fine. A lesser grade powder will have a slight grainy feel and not be as smooth.
Another great test of a quality face powder is absorbency. Try some on at the makeup counter or have a makeup artist do it for you, but don’t immediately buy the powder until you see how it holds up after wearing it for a time. If the powder begins to cake or you’re starting to shine and need a touch up before you usually require one, then this is not a good powder for you.
If you keep this information in mind, I am confident that you will be more pleased than you may have previously been with your face powders.
