Makeup is a fairly new discovery and passion of mine. Before our love affair began, I was constantly trying tips/tricks/hacks from all over to get my face looking as flawless as possible. Enter my discovery of translucent powder which changed the game forever. This magical miracle powder is the absolute truth and here is why:
There is no point in taking forever to get and get that perfect look that you have finally mastered to only have it slide or melt off your face in a matter of hours. Translucent powder locks your cream or liquid foundation into place. Used along with a bomb setting spray you’re GOOD.
Call me Betty Crocker because I LOVE baking simply because it makes my eye bags (sigh) look seamless, keeps my concealer from creasing and really makes my highlight looked more pronounced. Baking is easy. Dust or pat some of that magic (translucent) powder under your eyes (once you have applied concealer) and on your T-zone. I usually bake for about 10 minutes but you can bake for as little as 5 minutes or as long as 20, depending on how much time you have.

3. Keeps oil at bay
If you struggle with oily skin, adding a translucent powder to your routine will make all the difference in the world! You can use it alone over your primer to keep oil at bay – no foundation necessary.
4. Smooths/blurs imperfections
Since we live in a world where we have to be selfie ready, this is key. Although, there are filters and other photo editing software available at our disposal, you can be ready and look flawless without any technological intervention. Using a translucent powder is key in achieving that smooth, airbrushed finish.
