With the weather finally starting to heat up, we’re on the lookout for a new favourite face powder that’ll help stop our skin from getting it’s shine on. After all an oily t-zone can be a nightmare for eating up your foundation and generally leaving skin looking patchy. So here’ how you can put a stop to the shine with these magic mattifiers
LOOK’s Beauty Editor, Sam Freedman, says: My favourite powder has to be Dior’s Diorskin Nude Air Compact Powder, £35. Firstly how nice is the packaging?! The engraved silver palette is oh-so chic, I love getting it out of my make-up bag just to show it off! Secondly the formula is incredible, as the name would suggest, it’s super light and airy, it gives a sheer coverage that keeps me matte all day whilst never looking cakey.
LOOK’s Beauty Writer, Victoria Jowett, says: I love glowy skin so I don’t tend to go heavy on the powder, instead I want a powder that’ll set my make-up and even out my skin tone without stealing the dewy finish. Enter, Bourjois Healthy Balance Unifying Powder, £8.99, it’s virtually invisible but manages to set my make-up and stop it from creasing, plus it keeps oil under control without flattening my glow.
LOOK’s Beauty Assistant, Gabrielle Dyer, says: I like a powder that guarantees a perfect finish and Urban Decay’s Naked Skin Powder Foundation, £26, gives flawless skin, fast. The buildable formula is great as I can layer it where I need extra coverage and it never looks heavy or cakey. Plus the compact comes with a huge mirror so it’s great for topping up on the go.
