Translucent powder is a must-have for any makeup look.
Discover 8 unexpected ways you can use translucent powder to enhance your makeup looks, from increasing lash volume to rejuvenating lackluster hair. This multi-function beauty powerhouse is truly a versatile hard worker that goes above and beyond just setting your makeup!
1. Achieve Va-Va-Voom Lash Volume
Plump up your lashes with this neat beauty hack. Start by applying a single coat of mascara on your lashes before dusting a thin veil of translucent powder over them using an eyeshadow brush. Then, layer on another coat of mascara to unlock enviable volume. Opt for a pressed powder compact like our All Natural Pressed Mineral Translucent Powder as it is a beginner-friendly and less messy alternative to loose powders.
2. Mattify Oily Lids
Nothing is more frustrating than creating a striking eye makeup look only to have it lose vibrancy as the day goes by. Banish smudged mascara and faded eyeshadow for good by preparing a good eye makeup base. Apply concealer to your lids then set with translucent powder before applying eye makeup. This step helps to absorb excess oil and prep your lids for a smooth application.
3. Banish Sweaty Palms
Don’t let sweaty palms get in your way of having a good time! Simply apply a little translucent powder on your palms when they feel clammy and wet for an instant pick-me-up. The powder will soak up excess moisture without feeling heavy, leaving you feeling refreshed and ready to take on anything that comes your way.
4. Set Your Eyeliner
Liquid or cream eyeliners can be tricky. They tend to get messy and smudge on your lids when not set properly. Go over your eyeliner with some translucent powder using a thin eyeliner brush. Layering powder on liquid or cream helps to bind these two formulas together, creating a long-lasting effect. Enjoy bold eyeliner looks that stay sharp all day.
5. Refresh Tired Hair
Ran out of dry shampoo? No sweat! Revive lackluster and limp hair by applying a small amount of translucent powder to the roots of your hair and rub it in with your fingertips. This helps to degrease your locks, reduce the appearance of shine and inject exceptional volume to your hair.
6. Catch Eyeshadow Fallout
Before doing your eye makeup, dust translucent powder under your eye area to act as a protective shield. When bits and flakes of eyeshadow land on your cheek, just brush them away together with the translucent powder.
7. Get On The Baking Trend
If you have not tried makeup baking, you are missing out! After applying foundation and concealer, pack translucent powder under your eye area and let it sit for 5-10 minutes. The natural heat of your skin will warm up the powder formula and set them in place. Use a large fluffy brush to buff off the translucent powder and reveal a gorgeous filter-like finish.
8. Lipstick That Lasts
This trick may surprise you! Apply lipstick onto hydrated lips and blot them with a tissue. Reapply your lipstick for a more vibrant color payoff. Hold a sheer layer of tissue over your lips and dust translucent powder over the tissue to coat your lips with a light veil of powder. This helps to transfer-proof your lipstick and ensures that it does not bleed or feather.
