With a new generation of formulas and ultra-fine lightweight finishes, powder foundations are having a bit of a revival in the beauty world.

Which Skin Type is Powder Foundation Best For?

Ideal for all skin types, but especially for oily skin. Powder foundations are great for oily skin because they softly mattify the skin and conceal imperfections to leave your complexion even with a flawless finish.

What is a Key Benefit of Using a Powder Foundation?

Powder Foundations add a little bit of extra coverage on top of other base products, reducing shine without compromising on radiance. The pressed powders are also perfect for on-the-go touch ups making them an essential in your everyday makeup bag.
