School drop offs, work, post tuition pickups, and if you have time (and energy), a quick dinner with your friends—it’s only natural that you want your makeup to last as long as your day. But given the heat and humidity in Singapore, this can be especially challenging. More so if you happen to have oily skin that usually sees makeup slip and slide through the day.
What you need is a setting powder. These finely milled powders come in a variety of shades and you can use them to add coverage and warm up your foundation. The colourless version works best for all skin tones and is ideal for those who just want to set their makeup. Not only will setting your makeup with a powder will help it stay in place, you can even use to touch up any spots that are looking extra shiny as your day progresses.
Applied with a large fluffy brush all over the face, it will give an overall matte finish. If you only tend to get shiny at the T-zone, use a small fluffy brush to apply your pressed powder to the area. And, if you prefer a dewy finish, you can opt for a radiant setting powder.
Here are some pressed powders that will keep your makeup looking flawless all day, while also giving you a matte or radiant finish depending on your preference.
