Powder Foundations: The Summer Solution



With the summer already here- well at least in some parts of the world- certainly not here in Brussels :-(, most of us are faced with having to change our makeup routine and adapt it to the humidity and heat of the warmer months, which brings powder foundations to the starring role, being a great and quick solution to our makeup routine.

Powder foundations will give you enough coverage and a refined polished look to achieve flawless skin in no time, doubling up as a retouching powder throughout the day as well.

The most important thing is to pick the right one suited to your skin type and that provides the coverage you desire. Here are some recommendations (from high-end to drugstore) according to skin type:

Dry Skin:

  • Guerlain: Lingerie de Peau
  • Giorgio Armani: Luminous Silk Compact
  • Max Factor: Facefinity Powder Foundation

Remember to moisturize your skin properly prior to powder application.

Normal – Combination:

  • Lancome: Dual Finish
  • Marc Jacobs: Perfection Foundation
  • Sephora: Mattifying Compact Foundation
  • Benefit: Hello Flawless
  • The Body Shop: All in One Face Base
  • Urban Decay: Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder Foundation

Oily Skin:

  • MAC: Studio Fix
  • Estee Lauder: Double Wear Powder Foundation
  • MUFE: Pro-finish
  • L’areal: Infallible Pro-Matte Powder Foundation

These are my main picks, hope you’ll find a match among those 😉

    1. Hello!! If you have oily skin, but hydrate your skin properly with an oil-free cream gel, you shouldn’t have any issues with the powder setting into any lines…Moreover, you can apply it with a powder brush, which will give you a bit of coverage, but without creating any film or thick layer on the skin, like that you know for sure it won’t accentuate neither wrinkles or lines, nor rough patches on the skin. xx
