How to Apply Powder. Powder sets your makeup, creating a shine-free, even finish. Use loose powder at home, and carry a pressed powder compact for a midday touchup.
Things You'll Need
- Facial Tissues
- Makeup Brushes
- Powder Face Powder
- Powder Puffs
Apply a loose powder after you have completed the application of your foundation and concealer, and before applying eye makeup.
Release powder into the top section of the container by tipping the container and gently tapping the bottom.
Take a large fluffy brush or a powder puff and dip it into the powder. Tap the tool lightly over the container to remove any excess.
Dust your face with powder. Stroke your face gently to cover all areas evenly.
Touch up your makeup throughout the day using pressed powder. Dab a small amount of powder onto a cosmetic puff and apply it to shiny areas or places where your makeup has become thin.
