3 Amazingly Genius Uses Of Compact Powder
One of my makeup essentials definitely has to be my compact powder. It is just perfect to give a gentle coverage while hiding the appearance of face oils that make my face look shiny. Over the years though, I have discovered (with help from others) multiple uses of compact powder than it just being there for touch ups. So read on to know how to make the most of your little box of compact.
Use It As A Base
Your compact makes an excellent base for your makeup without the need of any foundation. It is light and just gives enough coverage to hide any marks. To apply compact as a base, wet your compact sponge with a little bit of water and dab it on your compact. Then glide it directly on your face. When you apply compact by this method, you will notice that it glides better on your face, gives you better coverage and also lasts longer.
Just remember that if you have a pimple on your face, then apply a concealer on your face before the wet compact to prevent it from spreading all over your face.
