To ensure excellent look of your makeup during the whole day it is a must to apply powder over or instead of the liquid or creamy foundation. Powder absorbs fat and allows avoiding that glare. The powder for drier skin features those light-reflecting particles and somewhat creamy texture and gives that healthy and glowing look. Besides, such powders do not feel too dry and hide minor wrinkles. So apart of the skin tone and color it is important to consider the skin type when choosing the perfect powder for yourself.

  • sand – pick powder of this shade if your skin features olive and yellowish undertones;
  • beige – you need to select the powders of this color if your skin features pinky or rosy undertones;
