Translucent powder is a must-have for any look. For setting makeup (foundation, blush, concealer, etc.), there’s nothing better — it’s color-free, invisible and gives you the most even, long-lasting, natural-looking finish. But did you know that transparent powder was also incredibly versatile? Here are three other ways to use it…
Plump up lashes. Apply one coat of mascara, then dust a little translucent powder over lashes using a shadow brush. Finish with another layer of mascara. For this trick, a pressed powder is less messy and easier to work with.
Revive limp locks. If you’re nowhere near dry shampoo, shake a little translucent powder right over your roots, rub it in with your fingertips, and boom—instant degreasing, plus a volume boost.
Catch shadow fallout. After doing your foundation, dust powder under the eye area to act as a protective barrier. Then do your eye makeup. Any little bits and flakes that fall onto the cheek, you’ll now be able to just brush away (they’ll stick to the powder). [via Beautylish]
