Fix Flaky Powder Makeup Mistakes
Answer: Here's a confession: I used to be anti-powder. In fact, I carried blotting papers everywhere to wick away shine every hour. But I've since learned that powder is a magical beauty tool; it can finish your face and prevent makeup from migrating when used correctly.The Perfect Powdering
- Dip a large brush into a loose powder that's micronized (or milled three times).
- Shake off the excess.
- Sweep it across your face just once.
"Because the formula is extra-light, it'll set your makeup invisibly without looking cakey or flaky," says Victoria Jackson, a makeup artist and creator of Lola Cosmetics. The best part: You won't require touch-ups. Bye-bye blotting papers!
