What is the best thing about a translucent powder? It is the ability to work with every skin tone. Never again will you need to purchase a new powder to match your season’s skin tone. Translucent is every woman’s perfect shade.
Translucent loose powder is one of the foundations of good makeup practices. If you’ve never used it before, you are really missing out. It is designed to be very light on your skin, and is preferred by most makeup artists to give a finished look.
It has much more staying power than pressed powders, to give a flawless, smooth result. It also works much better at blending than pressed powders, which used to be the staple for many shiny noses.
When translucent loose powder hit the stores, it changed the way women felt about their makeup. It has a variety of uses and feels light and airy on your skin, which allows your skin to breathe much better.
It helps conceal flaws, minimizes pore size, and lays a foundation for makeup application. It also allows for glide on application of mineral foundations especially. Over cream makeup and liquid makeup, it helps to set it in place.
In many ways, loose translucent powder is one of the best choices you can make. Translucent powders does not really add color to your foundations but it helps to blend blush and foundation colors together. If you’ve ever seen someone who didn’t bother to blend their makeup, you know how bogus that can look. When makeup isn’t blended, colors stop in place and prominently stand out. That is not how makeup is supposed to look.
It can be used as a final setting powder by finishing off your entire makeup and set everything with a light dusting of translucent powder using a fluffy brush. Since the powder is sheer and translucent, it does not budge with your makeup color and it will set your makeup making it last long. Sometimes compact powders will add a bit of cakiness underneath the eyes. Translucent powder as a concealer setter would set the under eye in the most natural way.
Catch shadow fallout. After doing your foundation, dust powder under the eye area to act as a protective barrier. Then do your eye makeup. Any little bits and flakes that fall onto the cheek, you’ll now be able to just brush away (they’ll stick to the powder).
Plump up lashes. Apply one coat of mascara, then dust a little translucent powder over lashes using a shadow brush. Finish with another layer of mascara.
Mattify oily lids. Apply a bit of concealer, set it with translucent powder, and (if you want) apply eye shadow. The powder will help soak up excess oil and make your eyes look more awake.
Counteract sweaty palms and feet. In high-stress situations that can trigger sweating—especially on the hands and feet. Apply a little on your palms or soles when you feel them getting clammy. The setting properties of the powder will help lift and clear away excess oil and water (both components of sweat).
Prevent runny eye liner. After applying your liner on your upper lid, go over it with translucent powder using a thin brush. On your bottom lash line, do a line of powder under liner and over it. This will help it stay put all day.
Revive limp locks. For an instant when hair needs an instant refresh in a pinch. If you’re nowhere near dry shampoo, shake a little translucent powder right over your roots, rub it in with your fingertips, and boom—instant degreasing, plus a volume boost.
If you have dry skin, you will need to take into consideration that your face can look dry around your eyes and on your forehead. Use a moisture infused loose powder if you can find them. The moisture in the powder helps replenish moisture to dry areas. You might also choose to keep powder away from these areas, as they can collect in the creases of your face and form unwanted lines in your makeup application.
Sensitive skin types should choose a hypo-allergenic translucent loose powder, since your skin is more prone to allergic reactions from cosmetics. A hypo-allergenic powder will decrease the chances that you have a bad reaction. Since sensitive skin can be normal, dry, oily, or a combination of all the skin types you will have to choose your powders accordingly.

If you’ve ever purchased translucent loose powder, you know that not all brands are created equal. Some just work much better. The delivery of loose powders is also vital. You can either apply them with a powder puff, usually provided by the manufacturer, or use a makeup brush. If you use a brush, dip, tap, and brush on, just as you would minerals.

So, when choosing a translucent loose powder, remember to keep it light. Light translucent powders generally blend with most foundation colors, if you have fair to medium skin tones. If you have tanned skin or are dark skinned naturally, choose a medium or dark translucent loose powder.
Any professional makeup artist will probably say that translucent powder is a must-have for any look. For setting makeup (foundation, blush, concealer, etc.), there’s nothing better — it’s color-free, invisible, and gives you the most even, long-lasting, natural-looking finish. Loose powder is very sheer; pressed powder has a heavier feel and gives more opaque coverage, because of the emollients used to press the product into the compact.
