5 Best Ways to use Translucent Loose Powder

translucent loose powder

Hiya Everyone, 🙂

How is the week coming along for you guys?  🙂

Translucent loose powder is one of those things that I always have in my vanity. I also carry a teeny bit of it in a small jar when I am travelling. Here are 5 of my favourite ways on how I use this magical powder. 🙂

  1. As a final setting powder : I finish off my entire makeup and set everything with a light dusting of translucent powder using a fluffy powder brush.Since the powder is sheer and translucent, it does not budge with my makeup colors.And it sets my makeup making it last long. 
  2. As a concealer setter : I always set my under eye concealer with translucent powder. Sometimes compact powders add a bit of cakiness underneath the eyes. Translucent powder would set the under eye concealer the most natural way.
  3. To catch eyeshadow fall out : In most cases I like to do my face makeup before the eye makeup. So I add a thick layer of loose powder underneath the eyes/ on cheek bones before doing my eye makeup. This way the loose powder catchs all the fall out. Once I am done with your eye makeup, I sweep the excess powder away. Tada! my face makeup looks fresh as ever! *happydance*
  4. For oily lids : I have very funny lids I tell ya. 😛 Some days they become super oily and some days they are dry as parched lands. 😛 So on oily lids days what I do is that I apply a bit of concealer on my lids and then set it with some loose powder. I have noticed that loose powder soaks up the oil better than the compact powder. This trick also works as a great wake-me-up trick. 🙂
  5. Foundation on good skin days : Some days when I barely need anything on my skin, I apply a bit of concealer on my under eyes and set everything with translucent powder. It gives that light sheer polished look to the skin.

Hope you find these tips helpful. 🙂

So you tell me how do you like to use loose powder? 🙂

Rati di! Totally agree with all the benefits of loose translucent powder…I have used the corn silk powder, boots no7 (both available in UK) and oriflame one…finding it difficult to get it in any drugstore brand in India….any suggestions?

Guys… little help here… Is the translucent powder different from loose powder?

Reply

Rati June 12, 2013 at 10:16 am

loose powder can be white loose setting powder as well. Translucent powder has a bit of a coverage.
