Share your best tips and tricks for applying setting powder to your face! Feel free to share your experiences, how you mastered techniques, or what you struggle with.

My Tips

  1. It’s important the powder is pressed into the skin, not merely feathered, if you really want to set the underlying base products–just use less than you think as you don’t need a lot and too much can look caky!
  2. I like translucent powders when I have a foundation that matches me, but I also keep a setting powder that is slightly darker so I can fix any foundation that might be slightly light.
  3. I like to mist my face with water (or if you prefer, an actual facial mist!) afterward, which helps to take down some of the excess powderiness.
