Banana powder may sound like an unusual makeup item, but it’s actually one of the easiest products in the book for helping to achieve healthy and luminous-looking skin.
Celebrities such as Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez are said to be fans of the powder thanks to celebrity makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic. He likes to use it on his clients
What is Banana Powder?
A kind-of hybrid between a setting powder and a colour corrector, Banana Powder helps to eliminate signs of redness and discolouration, all while neutralising the skin tone and minimising the appearance of blemishes and pores.
How do I use Banana Powder?
To be used after applying your base products such as your primer, foundation and concealer, banana powder is great for setting the makeup.
Pro makeup artists suggest you apply it with a blending sponge, such as the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. This is because it helps to press the finely milled powder into your skin, without making it look cakey.
You can use the powder wherever you feel you need it the most, but it’s especially great to use under the eyes, over the chin and in the centre of the forehead where shine can be at its most prominent.
For a great eyeshadow base, press it along the lid and then apply your normal shadow. It’s perfect, trust us!
Use the Bellapierre Banana Powder as a gentle highlight on your cheekbones and down the centre of your nose
