Ah, the workhorse abilities of a powder, am I right? It’s a basic in my routine, and even on no-makeup days, a quick dusting of a mattifying powder goes a long way for those like me who would like to NOT look like an oil slick. It’s a challenge. But here are my top ten, organized into powder types:
- Urban Decay De-Slick Mattifying Powder: this pressed powder does exactly what it says – mattifies like a charm and leaves no trace of itself behind.
- Revlon PhotoReady Finisher Translucent Powder: This finishing powder adds more of a matte finish than a shimmery one. Great for matte looks with matte lips and eyes.
- Make Up For Ever HD High Defininition Powder: this was the first “HD” product I ever bought, and it’s remained a staple. Use with a big, fluffy brush for the best finish.
- Wet ‘n Wild Fergie Center Stage Collection Take On the Day Mattifying Powder: this is one of the best mattifying powder values at $2.99, and the performance is everything that a more expensive version would be.
- Physicians Formula Powder Palette Multi-Colored Face Powder: this is a great pressed powder for someone who is looking to correct a bit of blue tint to their face. The bright yellow and green removes red, and the pinks add healthy looking color.
- Too Faced #TFNoFilter Selfie Powders: these are color correcting finishing powders – yellow reduces red, the bronze addds color, and the purple gives a more ethereal glow.
- e.l.f. Tone Correcting Powder Palette: another great tone correcting matte powder that performs far beyond it’s price point.
- Physicians Formula Nude Wear Glowing Nude Powder: if you’re looking for a bit of color with some summertime shimmer, this Physicians Formula line is right up your alley. This nude powder gives just a touch of color and shimmer.
- Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder: this magical powder has been buzzed about a lot lately. With just a touch of light-reflecting shimmer, this blurs imperfections and highlights skin.
- Urban Decay Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder Foundation: okay, this isn’t a finishing powder, but it is a powder foundation that goes far and beyond any powder foundation I’ve ever used. Apply dry for light coverage, wet for more.
