Save Vs Splurge: Translucent Setting Powders To Blot Your Greasy Day Away

By  | 

Have you ever wondered how celebrities tend to look so flawless, even after shooting all day? I mean, if you were to put me under studio lights, layers of makeup, heat, and of course, let’s not leave out the humidity, I’d just end up looking like a mini slime ball!

The Holy Grail when it comes to combating all of these issues is one miraculous product — setting powder. Besides setting your makeup in place and providing that seamless makeup finesse, translucent setting powder is used to blot away the built-up grease and give your face a fresher feel.

Essentially, the silica-based pressed powder is meant to minimise appearance of pores and kill shine, providing a more refined and flawless effect. However, it works its magic when it comes to touch-ups as well.

But remember to dab the oil and dirt away with tissue before dusting on the powder!

We’ve got two setting powders that will help you get that filter-esque skin in seconds. Whether you want to go for a splurge or keep it pocket-friendly, we’ve got you and your pictureperfect skin covered!

MAC Prep + Prime Finishing Powder (Rs 2,200)

When it comes to makeup, MAC is one of the most well known brands. From their lipsticks to their base products, everything is quite hyped and raved about — their Prep + Prime range especially.

This translucent finishing powder provides a colourless fix to your base and also reduces shine. The velvet-like finish is what leaves the skin looking almost poreless when applied and works great for those mid-day touch-ups too.

A slight splurge when it comes to a loose powder, this one from MAC won’t let you down.

LA Girl Pro Powder HD Setting Powder (Rs 1,000)

If you’re looking for a similar finish, the LA Girl HD Powder stands a big chance to win your heart. A lot more affordable as compared with MAC, this product is made with mineral silica, which evens out your skin tone, softens lines, and gives you that glow that’s not the grease on your face.

Saving you a ton of money, in terms of quality and finish, LA Girl’s Pro Powder is pretty much at par with MAC… so you don’t have to compromise!
