I have a confession. I do not like powder foundations. But there’s one I keep using over and over.
There are a few reasons that I usually hate powder foundations. My first exposure to powder foundations came through mineral foundations, which my skin doesn’t seem to like. Something in the foundations makes my skin itchy and rashy, I think it might be the Mica. Even when I do find a powder foundation that my skin can tolerate, I’ve found that the dry areas on my skin are very emphasized by powder foundation. This has gotten worse as I’ve gotten older.
Despite this, there’s 1 powder foundation that I keep coming back to.
The foundation is IT Cosmetics Celebration Powder Foundation. I love it because it works great as a setting powder, but offers more coverage than other powders. I’ve tried this with other powder foundations, but the IT Cosmetics foundation is my favorite. The trick is to apply the foundation with the puff (it is hidden underneath the foundation in that compact). I gently pat it on to areas that need some help, especially my nose and chin in the middle of the day. If I’ve applied a lot of the powder, I might use a brush like the one pictured (that’s the Heavenly Luxe Angled Buffing Foundation Brush) to gently buff the foundation. That’s it!
You can buy It Cosmetics Celebration Powder Foundation at ULTA, or IT Cosmetics.
