What is loose powder, how to use it?
When it comes to essential makeup items, loose powder has become a staple nowadays, but not without reason. But it wasn't that popular a few years ago since loose powder was initially perceived as something that only professionals would use. However, that isn't true, as loose powder is an easy-to-use, multi-purpose product. Here are some ways to incorporate loose powder into daily makeup.
Setting your foundation
You can use loose powder to set your foundation and make your skin look natural and fresh. Just dab some loose powder on your face with a powder brush after applying your foundation. It makes the foundation last longer by stopping the oils from within your skin from seeping up. It also gives a matte look and is great for oily skin.
To get plump and voluminous lashes
Your loose setting powder can be used to give you plump, voluminous, and enviable eyelashes without the need to apply any false lashes. Coat your lashes with some loose powder using a shadow brush before applying the mascara. After applying the first coat of mascara, dust some more powder and repeat until you get the long fluffy lashes that you desire.
To make your lipstick matte
Now you don't need to buy matte lipstick as you can easily turn your glossy lipstick into matte. Grab some translucent powder, a brush, and tissue paper to achieve the matte lip look. Apply your lipstick and place a tissue on your lips. Now dab some loose powder over the tissue. Remove the tissue, and your matte lip look is ready.
Use it as dry shampoo and for blending eyeshadow
Loose powder is great for oily, greasy hair and can remove the oil in no time. Use it as a dry shampoo by sprinkling some loose powder and then combing it out after some time. Blending dark eyeshadow shades is a task. Dab some loose powder and blend it over the color to tone down the shade intensity for a flawless transition between colors.
For long-lasting eyeliner and for toning down your blush
Loose powder act as a great base. Dab some translucent powder on your eyelids as a base before applying your eyeliner. After you are done with the eyeliner, apply some more powder to the lids to prevent any smudging. If you went too dramatic with your blush, apply some loose powder to tone the color down instead of starting the makeup process again.Share this timeline
