Face powder is one such makeup and cosmetic product that completes the whole makeup routine. If you are a regular user of powder while applying makeup, it is understandable that you have become quite a pro. But did you know that there are a lot of mistakes that you might have been making while applying them even without knowing? So, take a look at what those mistakes are to avoid them in the future.
Not Using The Correct Tools
There are so many ways to apply powder on your face. You can use a brush, puff, or a beauty blender. It depends on which one you are comfortable with. Many are most familiar and used to brushes, especially if you are looking for a soft and glowy look. You can also use a puff or sponge for a pressed makeup powder. It will give you full coverage. In case of beauty blender only use it if you know how to use it properly.
Choosing The Wrong Shade Of Your Powder
Choosing the right shade of powder matching your skin tone can be a little tricky. In case you have oily skin then it is harder. If your skin becomes oily too quickly then go for a powder shade that is one shade lighter than your skin tone. This is important as when powder mixes with oil then it becomes darker. In case you have dry or combination skin then match your powder shade just similar to skin tone.
You Might Be Using Too Much Powder
Never overdo your makeup. The same goes for applying powder too. If you apply too much powder, it will make your face look cakey. In case you apply too much then you can use a spray to give yourself a dewy look. It is the current trend in makeup looks.
You Are Not Removing The Excess Powder
This is quite an important step in the makeup routine. If you don’t remove the excess powder and you have to go to an event, it will not make you look natural. If you are applying the powder after applying makeup to set it, you can use a brush to dust off the excess powder. Do not use a sponge as it will remove the foundation too.
If You Are Applying Powder On The Outer Edges
Do you apply the powder in the outer edges? Don’t do it from today. Stick to only the T-zone area. This is your most oily area. If you want to apply to the outer edge be careful of your hair. It is very difficult to remove powder from the hair.
So, make sure you don’t make these mistakes anymore and buy only good quality makeup and cosmetic products in the Philippines.
