Fixing makeup with a powder is a key thing that each of us must remember. Too bad, not every girl knows how to do it right. That’s why, in the post, I’m revealing my secret tricks. For the makeup fixing lesson, I use my fave loose powder – Rimmel Match Perfection.
Powder – Must-Have in Your Beauty Case
I often hear that applying a powder over foundation is a mistake. Believe it or not, leaving your makeup without any protection is a mistake. Thanks to the product, you get a matte finish, keep the foundation from rubbing off and get the final effect. There are three basic types of powders:
- considering the coverage effect – transparent, translucent and camouflaging powders;
- considering the consistency – loose, pressed and baked powders;
- considering the effects – illuminating, mattifying, bronzing powders.
You can apply the powder in many different ways. Dusting it with a brush gives a natural-looking effect. I think it’s the most common makeup-fixing technique. Another way is using a puff for a precise, long-wearing and matte effect. Last but not least, applying a powder with a wet latex sponge. However, it requires some experience and devoting some time to makeup.
Rimmel Match Perfection Loose Powder
Rimmel Powder is a translucent cosmetic so it doesn’t color the skin. It fixes foundation and gives a matte finish – a perfect choice for oily, acne-prone and combination skin. Match Perfection comes in a plastic jar with a sifter and puff. Too bad, the puff is too stiff and harsh… I exchanged it for a fluffier brush. Rimmel Powder gives a natural look, lasts on for several hours without touch-ups. It has a lightweight formula which doesn’t look cakey and stays on long.
How I fix my makeup with Rimmel Match Perfection?
The jar sifter helps a lot. I pour some powder onto the lid and pick it up with the brush. I gently sweep it over the face without too much pressure to avoid smudges. I layer another coat to the T zone only (to reduce the unwanted shine). Rimmel Powder is enriched with zinc so it cares for the combination skin. For makeup, I use a hue which is lighter than my skin tone and foundation.
