One of the most important things when you do your makeup is making sure to set your makeup with a sort of powder. I like using translucent powder mostly to put over my foundation after applying it because it sometimes looks oily and the point of a translucent powder is to absorb that access oil and make your makeup last for hours! I sometimes will also use these translucent powders to set my concealer as well. Making sure you have some type of powder over both your foundation and concealer is highly important. So here are my most favorite translucent powders and I highly recommend that if you are not using one now to start! If you feel like your foundation looks greasy this maybe be your problem. Add a translucent powder into your routine and you will see a huge different! Another tip NEVER use a powder foundation to set your liquid foundation. That's just like putting more foundation on top of of your layer of foundation. That will cause your makeup to be cakey.
Nyx HD finishing powder; Ulta for $10! There are I think three different shades of this powder. I have the white one and that's what I use on the foundation and sometimes concealer. I feel like the other shades that are more skin tones would work better with concealer. But this powder is off the charts great for both oil absorbing and long wear.
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder; Ulta or any drug store $5! I would honestly say I think this powder is my favorite. You can just see a automatic change when you put it on. This is the only one I use more frequently for my concealer as well. I wanna say I use the beige shade if there is one but I'm not one hundred percent positive. When you are picking a shade pick the shade that is one shade lighter than your skin tone for foundation and two shades lighter for concealer. There are tonsss of different colors of this powder so you shouldn't have a problem finding the perfect match for you. This powder is best for keeping your makeup long wear.
Maybelline Translucent Powder; Ulta or any drug store for $10! This one is definitely what I use for both foundation and concealer as well because this is a loose translucent powder and I feel that it is needed in my purse at all times because it's an amazing powder for absorbing oils.
I can't necessarily say that any of these are better than the other because they are all seriously so amazing. I don't think I will ever go without having all three at once. Just pick which ever one you want if you think of purchasing one. If you don't see great results move on to another. But I can promise you that between these three you will fall in love with a least one of them.
