If you don’t have translucent or sheer setting powder in your makeup collection, you’re definitely missing out! There’s so many different ways to use it aside from the most popular one, which is baking.

Baking the areas of your face where your makeup tends to crease or where your skin tends to get oily is key to a long lasting makeup application. If you have dry skin, you honestly don’t need to bake for too long, if at all. If you have oily skin, baking for at least 3 minutes will help keep oils at bay. As far as preventing any creasing, baking underneath the eyes or simply setting the area with powder will stop your concealer from creasing and separating. If you aren’t a fan of the powdery look, pick up a setting spray such as Mac Fix+ or Mario Badescu Rose Facial Spray! It will lock everything into place and give your makeup a more natural texture.
