Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Natural
It’s a baked mineral powder that you can use to set your makeup, or when applied using a denser brush it can provide a little bit more coverage. You can’t over-do with this powder–it’ll always look natural, dewey and undetectable on the skin. Moreover, it will never cling to dry patches which is very important if you have dry skin; that being said, this powder doesn’t control shine throughout the day.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light
I use this product after setting with a powder, but I thought I’d include it anyway since I love it so much. This neutral soft beige powder gives a luminous, ‘lit-from-within’ kind of subtle glow to your face. It’s so finely-milled that it won’t ever end-up looking too powdery– I promise. I like to dust it over the cheekbones, under the eyes, across the forehead, and the bridge of the nose. Plus, it visibly blurs the appearance of pores and fine lines. If you’re willing to splurge on illuminating finishing powder, you won’t be disappointed with this one.
To control shine throughout the day, I’d highly recommend using blotting papers instead of consistently reapplying powder on top of excess oil. First, blot away the oil and then touch-up using a powder.
