Makeup can be a nightmare in the Summer, slipping and melting off your face. One of the things we rely on to keep our makeup pristine and shine at bay is a great powder. It helps set your makeup in the morning and can be great for absorbing oil if you suffer from that midday shine.

Whether you are a fan of pressed compacts or prefer loose powders, no one can deny these are a makeup bag essential. Here are our top recommendations this Summer.

Jurlique Silk Finishing Powder - Rose (10g)

This is a totally luxurious loose facial powder. Scented with Rose, it leaves skin radiant rather than chalky and helps balance the skin's natural oils.

Daniel Sandler Invisible Veil Blotting Powder

The fear with powders is that over-application can leave skin looking cakey and dry. This is specially designed to be totally invisible, just absorbing shine. It comes with an application puff inside, making it perfect for on-the-go touch-ups.

Clinique Stay-Matte Sheer Pressed Powder Oil-Free 7.6g (Various Shades)

For a setting powder that will leave your makeup looking flawless, try this one from Clinique. It comes in a good range of shades and is oil-free, so perfect for those that struggle with oily and blemish-prone skin.

theBalm Sexy Mama Anti-Shine Translucent Powder

Though their products look fun and cheeky, don't underestimate the results you'll get from theBalm. This translucent powder contains miniature, oil-absorbing spheres which soak up any shine to leave your skin looking velvety smooth.

RMS Beauty 'Un' Powder

For the most natural of finishes, try out the 'Un' Powder. Made of just pure Silica, it works to mattify and blur pores for a smooth, soft focus result, Just pat it over the skin with the puff whenever you need.

Dr. Hauschka Balancing Teint Powder - Natural

For a gorgeous radiance boost, try this from Dr. Hauschka. It contains a blend of colour-correcting shades which work together to even out your skin tone, leaving it bright, light and smooth. You can also use the shades individually to add definition and highlight to the face where you want.

Major fan of scented candles, Make Up brushes and Highlighter. I’m always on the hunt for those Holy Grail products and my dressing table is covered in more beauty products than I like to admit. As an adopted Northerner originally from Brighton, I spend most my days wondering what all this rain is about. My hair isn’t grateful for the move. Currently loving: NIOD Photography Fluid
