The thing about the whole “bare-faced” beauty look gracing the pages of our favorite glossies is that it very rarely is achieved by stepping out with a bare face. So how does one look effortlessly makeup free without putting all of your “skinperfections” on display? With the help of translucent powder, achieving flawless looking skin is easier than ever.
The fact that translucent powder can be lightly applied over foundation without looking cakey and “made-up” is only where our love for it begins. It is color-free, invisible, and gives you the most even, long-lasting, natural-looking finish. Additional uses that make it the perfect addition to your makeup bag: it can be used to de-crease concealer, plump mascara (apply to lashes in between coats) and substitute for dry shampoo in a pinch. A simple solution to a lot of little beauty problems, all while leaving your skin looking bare and smooth.
Looking to try a powder for yourself?
- Our pick is Laura Mercier’s Loose Setting Powder. We never leave home without it. It applies evenly, blends effortlessly and the matte finish creates the perfect touch of sheer coverage.
- Another in house favorite is NYX’s Studio Finishing Powder with Translucent Finish. This powder is 100% pure silica minerals to help provide an impeccable photo ready look. It’s super light and our go-to on warmer days.
- Last but certainly not least, we highly recommend IT Cosmetics’ Bye Bye Pores Silk HD Anti-Aging Micro-Powder. Like the others, it absorbs oil and shine, and blurs away the look of pores. What’s the difference? It helps to diffuse the appearance of wrinkles and pores instantly without settling into lines and wrinkles. Eureka!
But don’t take our word for it. Got another translucent powder that floats your boat? Be sure to drop your favorite translucent powders for all of #TeamTKC in the comments below.
