They create a barrier between the skin and other makeup products allowing the foundation etc to sit on, instead of sinking into the skin, giving your makeup a more even, smooth application and finish. If...

NYX Powders

NYX Powders

Although I do tend to have quiet tight, dehydrated skin I still could not go without even a small amount of setting powder over my foundation. I feel any powder products I put over my foundation (bronzer, blush etc) do not blend well if I don’t set my face first. I am a huge fan...
