The finishing step to any makeup look has got to be setting your make up with loose setting powder to prolong your makeup and giving your look a flawless finish. 


Fenty Beauty Pro Filt'r Instant Retouch Setting Powder


When looking good is the name of the game, your makeup better be able to keep up. A superfine, weightless loose setting powder curated in 8 sheer shades to perfect and extend makeup wear for that filtered, photo-ready finish on lock.

I have yet to try a Fenty Beauty product that I didn’t like and I am glad that this setting powder did not disappoint. It is silky, finely milled to the touch and feels ultra light-weight while keeping my makeup in place for the whole day. My pores and fine lines also look a lot less obvious and the best thing about it is that it gives my skin an instant filter effect, making me feel photo-ready all day.

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder

Cult favourite and winner of multiple major awards, Laura Mercier’s ‘best in beauty’ #1 setting powder is your go-to powder. Sets makeup for 12 hours without adding weight or texture.

Although not as finely milled as other setting powders, this product is still very smooth and silky, and does a great job of setting my makeup for a good part of the day. It is also easy to apply and blends effortlessly. I like that it gives my skin a matte finish without any white cast due to the unique no-flashback formula, making it perfect for flash photography.

IT COSMETICS Bye Bye Pores™ Poreless Finish Airbrush Powder

Instantly erase the appearance of imperfections with Bye Bye Pores, your airbrushed perfection in a jar!

Enriched with the Bye Bye Pores™ Optical Blurring Technology which blurs imperfections for a flawless finish, and infused with real silk, hydrolyzed collagen, antioxidants and peptides which treat skin with anti-aging benefits while making our pores disappear from view, I was most excited to try this award-winning powder from one of my favourite brands. 

I love the extremely soft and silky powder and it does a great job at masking my pores, giving my skin a flawless, airbrushed look that is able to last the whole day without any touch ups. A little goes a long way!
