Setting Powder

My current favourite setting powder

One question is always get asked is ‘”what’s your favourite setting powder and why should I set my makeup? 

Lets start with the later. Why should you set your makeup?  Liquid and Cream foundation need to be ‘set’ in order to stay put and last longer.  Think of setting powder like the top coat of your nails.  You’d never do your nails and not put a top coat right, same applies to makeup. Setting powder acts as your top coat for your foundation thus making it last longer as well as reduce shine.

My two favourite powders in my Kit are Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder and RCMA No  Colour Powder….

Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder

This is a staple in my kit. I love that i can use this on almost every client i have.  I use this to set under eyes as well as the whole face. It leaves the skin feeling very smooth and doesn’t look dusty cakey or dry. Apart from this it also does a very good job keeping the oil away, so those with oily skin definitely invest in this product. This powder is also great for flash photography as it does not give flash back (that nasty white cast you see mostly under eyes, forehead). 

  • Lightweight.
  • Does not look cakey on skin.
  • Controls and reduces shine.
  • Absorbs excess oil.

RCMA No Colour Powder

Yes it literally has ‘no colour’ . I cannot tell you how much i looove this product.  It give a matte finish to the skin and works on all skin tones. The powder has no pigment which means it will not change or alter the colour of your foundation.

  •  Very affordable and you get a lot of product for your money
  • Long wearing
  • Doesn’t change the colour of your foundation
  • Any skin tone can use this
  • Great for all skin types
  • Fragrance free
  • Doesn’t irritate the skin

So there you have it, my the two setting powders i currently use on all my clients. Thank you for reading. See you in the next post.
