How To Apply Setting Powder After Foundation

Hello gorgeous ladies,

Like always I’m back with a post for you all! Today, we would be talking about how to apply setting powder after foundation. Earlier, we have already discussed what a setting powder is. For those who came in late, let me explain the concept again. Setting powder is a powerful type of makeup powder which locks the concealer and foundation in so that there are no creases on the skin. It hides the blemishes, pores and dark spots on the skin easily. Using setting powder allows the foundation (makeup) to last longer and gives you a flawless look.

So today we would be talking about how to apply setting powder after foundation.

How To Apply Setting Powder After Foundation

1. Apply Foundation:

The first important step is to choose the right type of foundation for your skin type. Also, you should choose the best type of foundation according to your skin tone. If you are one with sensitive skin, you should opt for foundations which suit sensitive skin. You should be using oil free foundation for oily skin and those with dry skin should be using a hydrating foundation. Do a patch test on the neck to find the right shade of foundation for yourself. Use Jane Iredale PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation or Inglot AMC Cream Foundation for best results.


2. Now Apply Concealer:

Once you are done with foundation, you should be using a concealer. Concealer helps to hide the dark circles and dark spots on the face easily. You should be applying Concealer on the under eye circles, corners of your nose and also on any dark patches that you might have. Some of the best concealers in the market are Milani Secret Cover Concealer Cream, Bobbi Brown Instant Full Cover Concealer and Collistar Foundation + Concealer Total Perfection Duo etc.


3. Use A Sponge To Apply Setting Powder:

Using powder sponges to apply setting powder after the foundation is the easiest way to get a glowing and radiant skin. Powder puffs are specially made to blend the powder easily on the face and also allows the skin to absorb the powder. Using a powder puff will give you a soft and radiant application.


4. Use A Brush To Apply Setting Powder:

Another easy way to apply setting powder is using a brush. Choose the right type of powder brush to blend the powder on the face. Try to use a brush with a soft hair so that it blends the powder easily on the skin. This will give you a good coverage on the skin and also make your skin look nice and natural.


5. Start From The Middle Of The Face:

You should start applying the setting powder from the center of the face. Slowly move outwards on the face. Make sure you blend the powder gently and dust off the excess powder with blotting paper. You can also dust off the powder with a clean sponge.

6. Use A Clean Brush For Touch Up:

The final step to make your foundation last longer and also set the setting powder is by using a clean brush. Use a clean brush to dust off the excess powder on the face. Slightly move the brush across the face and double check if there is any layer of powder left behind on the skin.

Some of the best setting powders are:
