Powder Perfect: The Best Of Translucent Powders


My top Translucent Powder picks.

I have three for you, from By Terry, Laura Mercier and Charlotte Tilbury.

Do you wear translucent powder? I admit I love it and wear it most days. Translucent powder is a product that gently sets the makeup without altering the colour of the skin tone. No oil, no smudge, without looking dull.

How To

A foundation brush is the most straight-forward to use as the bristles are tightly packed giving more control over the application of the powder.

Sprinkle a little translucent powder into the lid of the container and load the brush with a small amount of translucent powder.

Press the translucent powder onto the face over the foundation, tinted moisturiser or bb cream.

For a dewy look, apply the powder to the t-zone, avoiding the cheeks.

Top Tip: If the smudging of eyeliner or mascara is an issue, dab a little translucent powder along the lower lash line to prevent this.

Like foundation, less is more when it comes to translucent powder.

You do not mention Chanel much. I use Chanel products and like them. The base under makeup,
foundation, blush. Thx.
I love reading your advice and thoughts..

I have been using the Laura Mercier powder for some months how, and I love it. I came to the idea of doing the “T-zone” all on my own, funny enough–funny because I am no expert at make up application! At any rate, I highly endorse this product, and I bet the others you suggested are also great.
