So, the next time you are at makeup aisle, need not feel intimidated by the endless rows of face powders, as we are here to tell you all about it. This will help you find the one face powder that will work best for you.  

Loose Powder

If you have oily or combination skin, wearing loose powder can help to keep your makeup base fresh and non-shiny, due to its ability to control oil. Loose powder helps the makeup to last long by sealing the moist consistency of the foundation. Not only this, during those hot humid days it keeps the makeup from running off and gives you a natural finish. 

Pressed Powder

Pressed Powder

If you like products that are versatile, then pressed powder is your go-to face makeup product. From setting liquid foundation or concealer to helping the makeup last longer, pressed powder solves several purposes. The best part about this product is, it can also be used as foundation, just like a base for your entire makeup. However, it will give minimal coverage. But, if you add it with liquid foundation, the consistency, and coverage of foundation will increase.
