Loose Face Powder

Thursday, 19 March 2009

loose face powder Loose face powder is one of the oldest and favorite makeup products in the world. The credit for inventing loose face powder goes to the most famous beauties of the Ancient Egypt. At that time, it was not only a makeup product but an attribute and privilige of aristocracy. Beautifully pale and powdered face of a lady was the declaration of her high status in the society and showed what honors were to be rendered to her. Centuries later, the whiteness of woman's skin was associated with such concepts as nobility, purity and innocence.

In those days, powder was made of rice or superfine wheat flour. Sometimes fragrances and even finely ground pearls were added to the mixture. However, this powder tended to lose its properties and clog the pores when contacted with moisture, causing inflammation and face skin irritation.

Today, powder is produced from natural kaolin, calcium carbonate, talcum powder, gritted silk fiber, rich collagens and perfume oils. Every manufacturer adds special components to the formula of loose powder. There may be herb or mineral extracts, pearl, nacre or even gold microspheres and, of course, UV-screen. This powder won't cake, settle into lines, clog pores, but instead it heals face skin, protects it from ultraviolet light and harmful environmental influences.

Even though loose powder might be unhandy to carry about (but some manufacturers offer suitable cases for transportation), it is preferable for creating perfect makeup. It has a light, airy texture and is preferred by professional make-up artists because it's less likely to streak on the skin. This type of powder gives the skin very smooth, matte look and lasts longer. With loose face powder, you have more chances to cover the skin evenly and provide a flawless, natural-looking finish thus giving the skin this charming velvetiness. And what is more, this powder scarcely wears off and in combination with any foundation ensures perfect lasting makeup. So, if there is a chance, try to use loose face powder. And if you want to have a perfect makeup, you should know the right way of applying loose face powder.

For the application of loose face powder you will need a clean, large, fluffy and rounded makeup brush than helps to apply sheer loose powder on the cheekbones. Be careful not to stir fine hairs on the face. Using the puff, powder your nose, forehead and chin areas. Excess powder should be brushed off or removed by a cotton pad. Don't forget to powder all your face and not only nose and chin area as many women improperly do.

There are several rules for applying loose face powder:

  • loose face powder must always be applied after the liquid foundation and concealer have been finely blended in but before applying eye makeup,
  • first powder your face with translucent powder, then apply more deep shades on certain areas, and finish with the blush,
  • you shouldn't powder wet or sweaty face.
  • Loose face powder is perfect for oily or combined skin because the powder absorbs the oil that is secreted by the glands in your facial skin. It is recommended to use a talc-based translucent powder; it tightens the pores and allows less oil to surface. But stay away from rice and cornstarch based powders because they can cause breakouts. When choosing a loose face powder for these skin types, look for an oil absorbing, oil-free powder. Take into consideration some of the finer points.
  • Oily and problem skin must be powdered only with a new clean pad or brush. If you use one brush, wash it regularly, because its fibers absorb cutaneous grease thus providing a favorable environment for bacteria growth. Using such infected brush for makeup may create additional risk of skin inflammation.
  • We shall not remind you that it is essential to clean your skin of the remains of powder and other makeup.

Today, nearly all makeup products manufacturers offer high quality loose powder. How can you find what is the right for you in this spectrum of products?

  • First of all, when choosing powder keep in mind your natural skin tone and the shade of the foundation you are currently using. The color of loose powder must match or be a little darker or lighter than the shade of the foundation.
  • You may choose the shade which is close to your natural tone: apply a small amount of powder to the back of your arm. If there is no sharp contrast, the product matches your skin tone.
  • In fact, our skin is never monochrome, and to imitate its natural color you need to combine three or four different shades. If you are a fashionista who likes fancy makeup, try four-color kit Prisme Libre Loose Powder Quartet by Givenchy. A thin-walled powder case is divided into 4 sections for fabulous powders. Their shades are easily discerned through the glass cover. These fine and transparent thin-textured facial powders will give your skin a beautiful and natural luster.
  • When choosing a loose powder for dry skin, you need to take into consideration that your skin can look dry around the eyes and forehead, so the best choice for this skin type would be a light-deflecting, moisture infused loose powder.

Many girls like Chanel Natural Loose Powder Universelle Libre.

The powder gives natural matte coverage, finishing the skin evenly. Universelle Libre keeps makeup sheer, with a silky feel. Moreover, it comes with the dispenser which allows you to take the necessary amount of powder and apply it with one movement.

Diorskin Poudre Libre is a hot product by Dior. Soft and silky powder evenly cover the skin, ultra-thin powder layer ensures sheer, matte and luminous effect, highlighting fresh, velvety and young skin. A fluffy makeup brush is enclosed.

Create a morning makeup with loose powder Moisture-Balanced Translucent Face Powder offered by Estee Lauder. It gives a soft, natural finish and helps to achieve a luminous look while still covering blemishes and imperfections. It is perfect for problem skin, its silky formulation lets you apply a little extra where you need it. This makeup lasts through the day up to the evening. The product eliminates extra shine and gives your skin a natural look. No one would notice that you face was powdered, even after close examination.

Loose face powder by Japanese elite cosmetics manufacturer Shiseido, the Makeup Loose Powder, is also in great demand. Light and weightless, it doesn't clog pores, giving your face a luminous and natural luster. It's perfect for oily and problem skin.

Centuries have passed, but powder still remains one of the most popular makeup products. An elegant powder-box on the mirror shelf and carelessly placed puff would forever symbolize feminine charm that always excites our imagination.
