Tricks To Avoid Cakey Face Powder

Q: WHETHER I BUY CHIC OR CHEAP, MY FACE POWDER ALWAYS LOOKS CAKEY. — Cindy Weaver

A: So not sweet -- and I can relate. My guess is this is an application problem, so don't blame your powder. I just learned a new trick at a Marie Claire photo shoot you might try: Wrap the puff around your finger, load it up with powder, and then roll it over the skin (as if you were painting your house with a roller) as opposed to swiping or dabbing. This will distribute powder in an even layer. Consider experimenting with a multicolored powder, such as Givenchy Prisme Libre Air Sensation Loose Powder Quartet, which creates a flattering, illuminated effect.
