Like its name says, this powder isn’t going to give you full-on coverage, nor fully mattify your skin. Instead, it’s going to offer a natural skin-like finish; luminous on the high points of your face, like you’ve just spent a day outdoors.
Cle de Peau Beaute Radiant Powder Foundation, $130. Brush and case sold separately for $35 and $45 respectively
This is a long-wearing powder that veils the skin in a luminous, radiant finish. The cult-favourite product has “powder technology” that perfectly controls the reflection of light from your skin, so it looks brighter and clearer.
Benefit Hello Happy Velvet Powder Foundation, $52
The powder itself feels soft, almost creamy to the touch – thanks to the shea butter extract in it that gives it such a smooth feel. Put it on, and you’d end up with a velvety smooth finish on your skin, with a mattifying effect that lasts all day.
Marc Jacobs Beauty Accomplice Instant Blurring Powder with Brush, $69
It’s a powder that not only blurs away imperfections, but has just a hint of pearl pigment to lend that lit-from-within glow to your skin. We love how the built-in brush is truly built-in; it’s magnetised to the compact so you’ll never lose it when touching up on-the-go.
Three Pristine Complexion Powder Foundation, $68. Brush and case sold separately for $28 and $26 respectively
There are two different finishes in Three’s new powder foundation offering: Slender Matte and Slender Glow. As their names suggest, the matte and glow powders help to mattify skin, and/or add light luminosity to it. Use them together, or individually, as your look deems fit.
