Everyone knows the usefulness of traditional face powder, but have you ever wondered what transparent face powder is for? After reading this article, you will understand that you can no longer do without this versatile product that does not alter the skin tone, on the contrary it fixes the make-up and makes the complexion more even. The transparent mattifying powder is the best ally against shiny skin, especially for the T-zone which is the most at risk. Practical, simple to apply and with truly extraordinary results: the transparent powder will become the inevitable product in your daily beauty routine. But first it is essential to understand what it is for and how it must be applied!
Transparent powder: what is it for?
Transparent powder, as its name already says, is a powder with a light texture that can absorb excess sebum, mattify and fix makeup. Its impalpability makes it perfect to apply even during the period, in which it becomes even more fundamental due to the high temperatures and the risk of sweating. Powder is obviously not to be confused with foundation: they are two products with different roles and usefulness and it is also necessary to be very careful during application, in order to avoid the creation of the mask effect. The transparent powder can therefore be used to fix the makeup base, but not only: even creamy eyeshadows and eye pencils.
The main differences that distinguish it from the classic face powder are the absence of color and the very fine composition that make it very light on the face, without altering the skin tone, instead covering the presence of enlarged pores and imperfections. Many prefer to use this type of powder during the summer, while relying on a traditional powder during the winter. This depends on your needs, but what is certain is that transparent powder is perfect for every occasion and for every skin type, especially for oily skin.
Different types of transparent face powder
The transparent face powder can be sold in two different types: compact or powder. The transparent compact powder is indicated as a fixative and as a corrector of small imperfections. The transparent loose powder, on the other hand, is perfect for fixing make-up in situations of summer heat.
Another difference between the two types is also in the application: the compact powder can be applied with a sponge even when you are away from home, while the powder one requires a soft brush.
How to apply transparent powder
The application of the transparent powder is quite simple, but it is advisable to follow some steps. If you use loose powder you will need to:
- equip yourself with a soft bristle brush;
- make light circular movements with which to cover the whole face.
This way you can get a uniform result.
If you use compact powder instead you will need to:
- equip yourself with a sponge, which is very often already supplied inside the box;
- dab the sponge covered with powder on the skin, applying it even in the most difficult areas.
Very easy to apply, fast and surprising in the result: transparent powder is the solution to always be at the top, at any time of the day! In addition to being a fixative, this make-up product can also be used in other alternative ways, for example:
- it can be used as a primer, before applying the foundation so that it makes the skin perfect for subsequent product applications;
- it can be used to fix the seal of the eye pencil, in this case a veil is applied to the edge of the lashes;
- it can fix eyeshadows if applied on the mobile eyelids to avoid creating lines in the folds of the eyes;
- can be used when too much blush is applied to create a more natural effect;
finally it can be used to fix lipsticks.
Whatever use you choose to do, the transparent powder will become a product you can no longer give up to get a perfect make-up, in any situation!
