What coloured powders are for? | #selfiepowders

Face powder is something that can really finish off a look, or destroy it. There’s so many types available and can sometimes be quite confusing for the person trying to figure out what to buy. In my kit, I tend to carry only translucent or no-colour powders. This makes my life easier and I don’t have to worry about colour matching an extra product to the skin.

I stumbled on this in a recent trip to TK Maxx and they had at least 5 of them in that particular store. When I first saw these – last year I think – I really wanted to try one out. But I think they were around £30 a pop and honestly I wasn’t that desperate. Luckily £9.99 was a lot easier to swallow for 3 powders.

As I said, there are 3 powders – Yellow, brown and lilac. I will lightly cover what I have been using these for and if they do the job. Sunrise is made for brightening. You can use it under the eyes (sparingly if your pale like me) otherwise you end up looking a bit jaundice. But if you use this on top of your normal face powder, it adds a lovely glow to the skin. Leaving you looking just that bit healthier. The bronzer is actually really nice to use as a hybrid between a contour and to warm up the face. The my only gripe is that it can look a bit glittery in certain lights. Other than this, I really like it. Finally there is Moon River. Probably my favourite from the palette. Dusted all over the face, it leaves you looking instagrammable and beautifully lit from within. If they sold this separately, I would buy it in a heartbeat.

Because these powders are so finely milled, they don’t settle into any lines and are easily layered over other products. I love these and use them on a regular basis. When you have a makeup obsession like mine, this speaks volumes for a product. If you have a TK Maxx near you, I’d be quick as these will sell out quickly. I would highly recommend these beautiful powders for a natural filter to your skin.
