While setting powder may not be the most exciting product in your makeup collection, it is truly a staple - particularly for those with combination and oily complexions.

Working to mattify the skin and keep your makeup in place, powders can also blur imperfections and diffuse light to create the perfect flawless finish to your complexion. No longer chalky or cakey, the new generation of setting powders, both loose powder and pressed, glide on to the skin and make the perfect finishing touch to your makeup look.

We have curated an edit of the best setting powders to help you banish shine and extend the wear-time of your makeup without compromising a beautiful skin finish.
