After priming your skin, it’s time to add some powder to your face. Apply some translucent powder to matte up your face or only t-zone. If you have an oily skin type, then apply the powder to your whole face. When you have done with powdering, apply your regular foundation and concealer as you do.
4. Baking The Concealer:
Bake up your concealer to prevent it from creasing and wearing off. Take a translucent powder and apply it on the areas where you had put the concealer. Wait for 5 minutes, so that it could sit in. Then brush away all the powder and apply a little compact powder to set the foundation or cream base. Then apply the makeup setting spray to remove all the powderiness and set up the base.
5. Powder Down The Cream Products:
After setting all your makeup with the translucent powder, now use the powder products over the cream products. Use powder blush, powder contour, a powder highlighter, gel liner or kohl with black eyeshade to make it stay all day long. In the end, use the setting spray to lock everything.
