What's Better: Loose or Pressed Powder?

Which type of powder is the best for you? Here, makeup guru Trish McEvoy explains the benefits and uses of loose and pressed powder.
Question: "Which powder is best -- loose or pressed?"

Answer: They're both great – loose powder is best for setting your makeup, while pressed works for touch-ups. If you want a sheer effect, apply it with a fluffy brush. For more coverage, use a puff wrapped around your finger to press powder into skin. Whichever tool you use, start from the center of your face and blend out.
