Mask-wearing today comes with a whole bevvy of skincare problems: increased sebum and sweat, smearing of foundation on our masks, and so on. But in place of that, we’ve got the solution: loose powders.

Why? Wearing loose powders on top of our foundation or creams help to reduce the friction and creases between face masks and our skin, making transference of makeup onto our masks less likely to happen, keeping our face looking put together for longer. Plus, loose powders are lighter and contain less oils than pressed powders, making them less likely to appear overly thick and cakey over skin. 

But as we know by now, not all loose powders are made the same. Ahead, we’ve rounded up the best lightweight loose powders for an airbrushed finish; great for reducing shine, minimising creases and keeping makeup in place.

BSKIN Flawless Finish Perfecting Loose Powder, $49

This loose powder from BSKIN comes infused with skin-loving, sustainably sourced bee actives - royal jelly and honey, and titanium dioxide for physical, UV filter protection. Simply dab on with its pad or a kabuki brush as the final step in your skincare routine for a luminous, even-toned complexion, without clogging pores -- and velvety-matte to touch.

Dior Forever Cushion Powder, $92

With over 25% water, and wild pansy extract to add a boost of moisture and freshness, this sheer coverage powder evens out skin tone while imparting a lightweight, feathery finish. The cushion design also keeps the powder in place, reducing the chances of any mess, making this perfect to keep on hand for touch-ups and blotting on the go.

By Terry Hyaluronic Hydra Powder, $89

With micro-ionised hyaluronic acid to moisturise, and silica microbeads to hide imperfections and regulate sebum without drying skin out, this mattifying powder sits well on skin and is perfect for dry to mature skin conditions.

Givenchy Prisme Libre Loose Powder, $90

This loose powder imparts an airbrushed, lightweight finish that lasts throughout the day, while offering four different shades that allows you to colour-correct your look (from redness to dullness) making for one of the most iconic products by Givenchy yet.

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder, $70

This is a holy grail beauty product, and for good reason. Blot this on to mattify oily areas, while setting makeup without it looking too heavy, while its light-reflecting iridescence gives off that coveted lit-from-within glow.
