FAQs

  1. Does setting powder really work?
  2. Yes! When used correctly, a good-quality setting powder will absorb any oil on the surface of the skin. Importantly, it sets your makeup in place so that you can flaunt it for longer, sans slick or shine.

  3. How do I apply setting powder?
    • Lightly dip or swirl the brush over the product and give it a few taps to remove excess powder.
    • Beginning at the T-zone, dab the powder lightly into the skin.
    • Move on to areas where you tend to get oily.
    • Once done, wait for a minute or two to allow the powder to set in.
  4. How do I choose a good setting powder?
  5. Keep these things in mind when looking for the right setting powder for yourself:

    • Consider your skin type and go for a setting powder formulated specifically for normal, dry, oily, or sensitive skin.
    • Second, try to match the setting powder as closely as possible to your foundation shade.
