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.
