The best setting powders I’ve ever tried!


Commonly referred to as setting powder, loose powder, or translucent powder we have to accept that this product is a key player in any makeup process. In my opinion, setting powders have to keep my skin looking flawless (and not getting shiny!) all day long and prevent foundation from creasing into the of my face. Here you can find my suggestions with regards to the best setting powders that set your makeup and soak up sweat and oil, qualities that are undeniably useful when the weather’s is humid and wet. There is a combination of new and improved formulas for the newest releases.

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder, $38

The Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder is a classic in the kits of professional makeup artists for about a decade. It’s simple, basic, foolproof, and does the job it has to do. It now comes in a Medium Deep shade, so it can be used in deeper skin tones. This formula immediately mattes the hot spots and sets makeup without looking heavy.

Nars Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder, $37

Nars Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder mess-free option that will give skin a matte finish that is luminous too. It’s been awarded as the Best of Beauty Award as it’s crystal-clear on skin of all complexions, and gives it a filter-like, soft-focus glow.

Cover Fx Perfect Setting powder leans slightly towards the luminizing side of setting powders, as it gives the skin a glow while making sure foundation stays in place for up to 14 hours. It’s very lightweight, transfer resistant and feels comfortable too. Instead it’ll just ensure that your skin looks perfect all day long with a universal peach tint. Available in 2 shades.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Finish-Line Perfecting Coconut Setting Powder, $44

This creamy setting powder with five forms of cocoa butter and coconut sets makeup with a soft-matte finish stays for up to eight hours. It’s best described as silky or creamy and melts undetectably for a hydrated, healthy look and a soft-matte texture. It is recommended for dry skin, as it contains lots of emollient oils that give it a dewy texture. If you have oily or acne-prone skin you should probably avoid it though.

Fenty Beauty Invismatte Blotting Powder, $32

This universal mattifying powder blots the skin and diffuses the look of pores for an instant filtered look. In addition, its exclusive pore-diffusing complexabsorbs shine and gives you an instantly filtered lookand also sets foundation so it lasts longer. Lighter translucent powders sometimes leave a white cast on individuals with darker skin while other brands simply make darker powders. Fenty created a truly colorless powder that really works for everyone, and never looks cakey. Plus, it’s a pressed powder, so it’ll be very easy to use on the go.

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish, $45

For a second-skin effect, you can rely on the Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish. It hugs the skin, it’s lightweight and it doesn’t make the skin look like it’s covered in powder. It’s not chalky or talc-y and that’s why it’s one of my favorites pressed powders. It won’t weigh down the skin trust me!
