Match your loose powder to your skin’s needs. “If you have dull skin, an illuminating loose powder such as Dior Capture Totale Loose Powder, $107, can enhance smoothness and radiance. If you have scars or uneven skin, go for a soft-matte loose powder, like Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Powder, $38, which won’t accentuate flaws,” says Jyue Huey.
“Avoid heavy powders that offer too much coverage as these can draw attention to imperfections and even worsen the appearance of your skin. Makeup products today are not formulated for heavy application, so choose wisely to match your need.”
