Powder BEFORE Foundation?

Does your foundation ever get a little funky by the end of the day? Mine used to wear off by 5pm every afternoon, even with a dusting of powder—especially in my somewhat oily T-zone. That’s when I discovered, like many of you have, the concept of applying powder before foundation. Have you tried it yet? The theory behind it is that it helps you use less liquid foundation while getting more coverage, and that your makeup will last longer.

Even better than traditional powder, though, is our Special Healing Powder. It will simultaneously tone down redness while absorbing excess oil. After you apply your moisturizer and primer (if you’re using a primer), wait a few minutes for these to absorb. Then, dust a light coating of the Special Healing Powder on your skin. Proceed as usual with your foundation application. this moisturizer for under makeup>
