Powder. Some of us are afraid of it, and some of us are just a teensy bit too attached to it.
I like to think I have a healthy relationship with powder these days. I still use it everyday, but I try to avoid going for a swim in it. And when it comes to the drugstore powders that I use, I have high expectations.
See, I want my powders to do their jobs in silence. They need to stand up to whatever my skin or the weather throws at them, but they need to remain invisible and not complain. In literal terms, I just want my powders to blend into my skin, avoid looking dry or powdery, and definitely refrain from caking and curdling by the end of the day.
While I have been more of a minimalist when it comes to most makeup products, I find that powder is just too specific to have just one. Depending on what type of look want, what products I’m using and how long I need my makeup to last, I will set with different powders. Here are a bunch of my favorite powders and what I use them for.
*UPDATED: New powders have been released since this post was originally published. In order to keep this info current and super helpful, I have changed some of my top drugstore powder picks to keep up with the times. I plan on updating consistently as new products are released!
