What does face powder do?

Face powder helps even out your skin tone, absorb oil, set your makeup and achieve flawless-looking skin. It comes in a variety of formulas, such as e.l.f. Camo Powder Foundation for buildable coverage; e.l.f. Halo Glow Setting Powder that lightly veils the skin for a luminous finish and e.l.f. Prime and Stay Finishing Powder which sets makeup and keeps skin free of shine. Face powder can also be used for touch-ups throughout the day.

What is the difference between powder foundation and setting powder?

Foundation powder comes in a wide variety of skin-toned shades and offers sheer-to-medium coverage for the skin. Many people prefer powder foundation as it feels more lightweight than liquid or cream foundation.

Setting Powder a fine powder that keeps your liquid or cream foundation and concealer in place throughout the day. These powders actually bond with the “wet” products and help them set. They give your skin a smooth finish and come in a variety of neutral shades, as well as non-tinted.

How do I apply face powder?

Setting powder is best applied using a face brush. Apply powder foundation with a brush or, for more complete coverage, use a beauty blending sponge. To apply setting powder, select the finish you prefer—matte, luminous, veiled, etc. Once you’ve applied your foundation and concealer, swirl a large, fluffy brush in the powder and dust it lightly over your entire face. Blend until it’s completely absorbed.

To apply powder foundation, begin in the center of your face and sweep it out to your hairline and jawline with a sponge. Finish with a light dusting of a setting powder, using a large brush.

Can I use face powder without foundation?

Absolutely! If you’re looking for natural-looking polish without foundation, face powder will even out your skin tone, blur lines and pores and absorb oil. You can brush it all over or focus on specific areas such as your t-zone.
