When you can spend 20 minutes to an hour perfecting your make up, there are ways to make it last and avoid creasing under the eyes. For those with oily skin, it helps to reduce the oiliness throughout the day and sets the make up without looking ‘powdery’.
The most popular type of setting powder in the market right now is Laura Mercier’s Loose Setting Translucent Powder. Use it with a sponge or wide-brimmed brush to gently pat all over your face – the silky smooth texture and fine-milled translucent powder is quite lightweight and will easily blend with most foundation shades which makes this a must-have in any beauty regime.
Touch ups are usually needed after 3-4 hours for oilier skin types, while normal to dry skin can go for as long as 7-8 hours. You don’t need to use that much and can last you from 6 months to a year depending on frequency of use.
