But some who use loose powder find that it can cake up your foundation by mid-day, so they want to do away with that step altogether. With these seven foundations, you can skip that loose powder or setting spray step and shave time off your makeup routine.
This cushion uses a technology that lets the foundation set into two hydrating layers after application, and an Ultra Fine Powder Dispersion technology which gives full coverage with minimal product used. It also has a semi-matte finish and minerals coated with amino acid to blend better into skin without oxidising.
Guerlain L’Essentiel Natural Glow Foundation – 16H Wear, $94, in 30 shades
This liquid foundation is formulated with 97 per cent natural ingredients such as mineral pigments and marine and plant extracts. These help protect skin from pollution and blue light, and strengthen skin barrier functions to prevent skin from getting dehydrated and developing signs of premature ageing such as hyperpigmentation and dull skin. It gives a dewy finish, so those with oilier skin types may feel that they need to put on loose powder to set it.
