Mr. Martin suggested using a large, fluffy brush to set the makeup, then a powder puff afterward to push in and lock down the applied products. “If not, product just sits on your face,” he said.
Released in March, Dior’s Backstage Face & Body Powder-No-Powder, $40, is a long-lasting, multiuse, buildable gel-based powder that has plumping and soft-focus pigments that help erase imperfections. Micropearls increase radiance and brighten complexion. Ten shades provide a natural or bronzing visual.
Tatcha’s translucent Silk Powder ($48), which also debuted in March, delivers radiance properties, thanks to Japanese pearls, blurring effects, and oil-absorbing silk extracts. Each helps protect the skin and extends wearability. This setting powder also deflects blue light rays and filters pollution.
