Every occasion calls for a different type of coverage, right? You’re not going to use a heavy liquid-based foundation for a day on the beach, for example. So, when we find something that’s versatile and appropriate no matter the weather, or the location – we do a little victory dance. Powder-based foundation is our go-to guy for just that! It’s light enough for a slight dusting when your face is looking a little shiny, but its formula is effective enough to act as a complete force of coverage all on its own.
Okay, we’ve sold you on the whole powder vibe, but how do you know which one is best for you? We’re listing a few of our favourites to get you started.
L’Oréal Paris True Match Powder
Made up of micro-fine powder, the formula also contains a hint of pearl pigments sure to enhance your skin tone. It’s great for blotting shine, it’s super soft to touch, and it’s easily blendable allowing for a perfectly natural finish.
Maybelline Fit Me Matte & Poreless Pressed Powder
If a smooth, matte finish is what you’re after – this is the product for you. Skin stays poreless thanks to blurring micro-powders, and it lasts up to 16 hours! This setting powder helps control shine while adding the perfect hint of colour.
Urban Decay Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder Foundation
What we love most about this nifty powder is that it works wonders whether wet or dry! Its velvety formula provides weightless coverage and a demi-matte finish – perfect for any occasion. Blur fine lines and wrinkles and enjoy a natural, fresh-faced look.
Lancôme Belle De Teint Healthy Skin Powder
This powder-based foundation blurs all imperfections providing beautifully natural coverage instead. Add colour to your complexion while improving your skin’s texture, and enjoy zero redness and a refreshed overall look.
Yves Saint Laurent Poudre Compacte Radiance
A luminous and natural finish that lasts all day? Where do we sign up? This luxury powder makes for an even, glowing complexion that’s both fade-proof and long-lasting. Plus, its super-lightweight formula absorbs any excess oil to eliminate unwanted shine.
