Well, we always wonder.. Does it really matter which powder i use, i mean after all it’s powder
aren’t they all the same? Well, the answer is no.. I mean especially if your on a budget.. So here Are Some
powders that might be best for you, and your skin type, as well as your pocket book!!
Whether you are fed up of blending liquid, or you’re in a rush, there’s a lot to be said for powder foundations! I’ve been searching for the best ones, and here are my top !
1. Bare Escentuals bareMinerals SPF15
Price: $28 at sephora.com
This powder foundation provides a flawless base for make up, and even protects skin against the sun! The matte finish is divine, and it goes on easily and smoothly to provide you with a very smooth, poreless face. And, its completely free of harsh chemicals and preservatives, so if you have sensitive skin this is the perfect powder for you!
2. Make Up For Ever Duo Mat
Price: $32 at sephora.com
This is a real rival for liquid foundation! It lasts all day, and is oil free, so it won’t make your skin greasy. It goes on thick enough to cover blemishes and give an even skintone, but doesn’t suffocate the skin. Dreamy!
3. Philosophy The Supernatural Airbrushed Canvas SPF15
Price: $35 at sephora.com
I love this foundation! Not only is the powder brilliant, the applicator makes it quick and easy to apply, and leaves you looking flawless, and poreless! Its free from everything that can upset skin, and comes in eight colours, so whatever your skinproblem, this can cure it while keeping you looking great. Once you’ve tried this, nothing else will be good enough!
4. “Hello Flawless!” Benefit Cosmetics SPF15
Price: $34 at sephora.com
This is more of a cover up then a foundation, as the brush makes it quite hard to apply it to your whole face, but it blends beautifully. Use a sponge to apply it for a sheer, natural cover up, or stick with the brush to cover blemishes or spots. There is a colour for everyone, too, and the darker colours make brilliant blushers too!
5. NARS powder foundation
Price: $45 at sephora.com
This powder foundation comes in a very handbag friendly compact, and is very versatile. It applies easily to give good coverage, and leaves a very polished, healthy looking face! This only protects up to SPF12, but also has UVA and UVB rays, which protects your skin from premature ageing. Keep this one in your handbag for emergencies
