setting powders/finishing powders/Hd powders
setting powders/finishing powders/Hd powders are very important and essential step in makeup application,it helps keep your foundation,concealer or any other liquid or cream makeup in place and matte .it also stops your makeup from shining.
There are a lot of setting/finishing powder, therefore making it difficult for you to find the right one for your skin type .
They come either tinted or translucent and can also be used on their own or as an all over powder.
They are commonly referred to as, setting powder,finishing powders and HD powders.
Although they also have significant differences . Setting powders are used to set foundation they come tinted ,while finishing powders are used to finish ur makeup and keep it all day most of them come translucent .HD powders are finishing powders that are commonly used for filming and high definition photography most of they come clear and white like white powders .
You can apply them with either a fluffy blending blush or a puff ,while using a puff be careful not to use a lot to avoid the ghostly look. You only use very little amount of product.
Here are list of my favourite setting /finishing powders/HD powders
1.Laura mercier transluscent finishing powder
Set your makeup with this perfectly sheer, silky powder. Ideal for normal-to-oily skin of virtually every tone. Best for very light complexion but suitable for all .
The Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder is a lighter-than-air powder used to set under eye products like Secret Brightener, Secret Concealer and Secret Camouflage.
While adding an invisible lightening boost, the transparent white colour brightens skin instantly. the Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder creates the appearance of naturally perfected skin
The finish is beautiful can be used as a perfect base before eye colour application.
2.sacha buttercup powder
This is my favourite setting powder to date .It is completely flash-friendly, suit all complexion. but i still believe it is best for dark complexion . It can be used to highlight, set/bake your concealer or can be used as an all-over face powder. It does not give off the white cast or turn ashy in bright lighting or photos. It absorbs oil, reduces shine and keeps your face matte for hours. it eliminate the appearance of pores.Very impressed !
3.Ben nye banana powder
This has similar characteristic and uses and sacha buttercup powder,the difference is, this is not as yellowish and is not as fine as Sacha.Can look ashy if not properly blended after application .Otherwise its just as good and mattify your makeup.
4.Makeup for ever HD finishing powder :
It does set your makeup ,mattify your face .very very finely blended . it is best to use on Hd filming,if not properly blended can make you look ghostly in flash photography. Over all it gives flawless finish .
