Type of Cosmetic Powders for Everyday Use

*Affiliate links.

Cosmetic powders finish and set the base of the makeup beautifully. Which is why they are an important part of our everyday makeup. It is wise to pick a shade that would suit your skin tone and foundation. The last thing you would need is to have your cosmetic powder in the wrong shade as that can ruin your whole makeup because it will create different shades on your face.

Here are the different types of cosmetic powder you can use –

 

Loose Powders

Loose Powders are quite famous with the makeup artists and beauty gurus. A loose powder is made up of small particles and comes in a jar rather than a compact case. They come in similar shades to liquid foundation and provide a buildable coverage.

Loose Powders are considered more superior than other types of powders. Loose powders can be messy so they need to be applied with care and used sparingly with a powder brush. You will need to blow the blush to remove any excess powder first before applying. It is best to start applying your loose powders in the middle so that the t zone, which is the shiny parts of your face get the most powder coverage.

Some great Loose Powders are Clinique Blended Face Powder and Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder in Translucent, from the Flawless Face Collection.

 

 

 

 

Compact Pressed Powder and Finishing Powder

I use these everyday. Compact Pressed Powder and Finishing Powder are easier to use and not as messy as the loose powders. Having said that, they are not as effective as loose powders when it comes to coverage, so they can be tricky to apply. I prefer the finish the loose powder gives me but because I hardly ever have the time to use them, I stick to the compact pressed powders.

Compact Pressed Powders are pretty much Loose Powders in a compact form. While Finishing Powders are translucent powders used to control shine and give a matte finish. I use the Finishing Powder to finish off my makeup and leave my face matte and smooth. I also use them when I feel my makeup is starting to wear off.

Here are some amazing compact pressed and finishing powders you may want to try out – Rimmel London Insta Fix & Matte Powder Transparent, BOOTS No7 Perfect Light Pressed Powder and L’Oreal Paris Infallible Powder.

Wedding Perfumes for the Bride

*In collaboration with Cosmetify”.

An outfit is never complete without a good spritz of perfume. I use perfumes pretty much everyday. I like smelling nice. A good fragrance has the power to wake up my senses and put me in the right mood. Which is why I am never without bottles of perfume. For a bride on her big day, she needs a long-lasting perfume with a lovely fragrance. Weddings are usually very busy especially for the bride. The last thing any bride would need is to sweat and smell funky on her big day. Which is why I am taking part in the #WeddingReady Campaign with Cosmetify. I like everyone (especially brides) to smell good everyday and at weddings.

A bride must smell nice on her wedding day. It is a busy day and most times, the wedding dress can make you feel extra warm, which is why you need a perfume that would stand the test of time and still smell nice. Here are 3 of my current favourite perfumes. I think they would work great as wedding day perfumes for the bride –

I have been raving about this lovely Tom Ford’s Fragrance on social media in the last couple of days. If you are after a long-lasting lovely fragrance, then you need to check out Tom Ford Noir Pour Femme. It is such an amazing perfume. I have recently started using it, and I love it so much. This perfume would work great for a bride on her wedding day. The oriental floral scent has won my heart.

 

 

D&G The Only One 2

This is another perfume I really like. It smells amazing and is so long-lasting. I have recently started using this Dolce & Gabbana perfume and I cannot fault it. It ticks all my fragrance boxes and comes in such a beauty bottle. I think every bride should wear this perfume on her wedding day. It is definitely a wedding perfume.

 

 

Perry Ellis 360 Collection Rose Perfume

The Perry Ellis 360 Collection Rose Perfume is another great wedding perfume. It is more affordable than the Tom Ford and Dolce & Gabbana, but it smells really nice. I love the light floral fragrance. It is worth trying if you are a bride on a budget. This fragrance would leave you smelling nice all day long.
