A Different Kind of Dust: Powder Foundation For A Flawless Face


As beauty buffs, first on our list of greatest fears is cake-face. And when powder is involved in any makeup application process, that fear seems to always loom. So when makeup brands started developing powder foundations, we found ourselves skeptical. But with fine formulas and light textures, it seems that these products are definitely worth a try. With these airy foundations, there’s no risk for that dreaded caked-on look or, worse, clogged pores. All you’ll get is a smooth, clean finish that will stay put all day long.
