I am back with another awesome post for you all! Today, we would be talking about the difference between finishing powder and setting powder. Most girls fail to differentiate between finishing powder and setting powder while some others believe that both of these kinds of makeup powders are the same. Setting powder and finishing powder, both these powders are used in order to achieve radiant and flawless skin. But understanding the difference between them is really very important.
So, let’s discuss the difference between setting powder and finishing powder in detail.
What Is Setting Powder?
Setting powder is that kind of powder which is used to get rid of the excess shine on the face. It allows your makeup to go longer thus preventing melting of makeup. The best part about setting powder is it can be tinted in order to match with your skin tone and give you a radiant complexion.
Setting powder is an essential type of powder which completes your makeup. It should be applied after foundation as it helps to reduce the appearance of pores and wrinkles on the skin. Using setting powder prevents your foundation from creasing or looking ashy. Most importantly, setting powder comes in different forms – loose, translucent, tinted or in the compact. It plays an important role in setting your makeup.
Some of the best setting powders are:
– Kat Von D Lock-It Setting Powder
– RCMA No-Colour Setting Powder
– MUA Skin Define Hydro Setting Powder
– Laura Mercier Invisible Pressed Setting Powder
– Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder
– ELF Studio High Definition Undereye Setting Powder
– Vichy Setting Powder
What Is Finishing Powder?
Like the name suggests, finishing powder is a powder which should be applied after finishing your makeup and setting powder. It finishes the makeup and gives a luminous complexion. When it comes to consistency, finishing powder is much finer and softer as compared to setting powder. It works well on all skin types and is essentially recommended for mature skin. Finishing powder has the ability to hide the wrinkles, pores and fine lines on the face.
Using finishing powder makes sure your makeup lasts for a longer period of time. It is difficult to blend the finishing powder with fingers and hence it should always be applied using blending brush. Applying finishing powder can help to achieve a soft, supple and luminous look. Finishing powder can be skipped in regular use!
