About Compact Powder

If you are someone who likes to take care of your skin, you will always have at least one type of face powder in your beauty set. But there are a few different types of face powders. If you like to take your makeup regimen up a notch, you should start off with compact powder.

While everyone likes their face to look smooth and even, nobody wants an unnatural looking face that’s greasy. While foundation creams accentuate the texture a bit too much and make the skin shiny, adding a layer of compact powder on top of it can tame it down a bit. You can even use compact even without foundation. But, because there are so many varieties of compact, choosing which one to buy can be a bit confusing. But if you have a basic understanding of the product, it will get a lot easier. This article will tell you about the different types and the proper way to use them.

A guide to compact powder and how to use it

What makes these powders so popular? The main reason is how convenient they are. They come in slim, easy to carry cases. Unlike loose face powders that are too powdery and come in big jars, you can carry these powders in your handbag without any problem. These powders are also versatile. You can apply them without foundation and use them for quick touch-ups. Those who are not savvy with makeup brushes find it easier to apply compact when compared to loose powder due to its thicker consistency and larger particles.

Compact powder with SPF

Everyone thinks of sunscreen as a thick gooey cream. But there are other more interesting ways to protect your skin from sun damage without applying a cream that might not go well with your makeup. If you have a compact with sun protection, you not only get an additional benefit with less work but better-looking makeup as well. A high-quality sunscreen powder will protect your face from the sun, will give you an even complexion, and keep your face oil-free all at the same time. And just like sunscreen lotions, compacts also have a broad spectrum and narrow spectrum SPFs.

Compact powder for oily skin

Keeping the makeup on oily skin for the whole day is nothing short of a challenge. No matter how hard you try, the oil will keep appearing on top of the makeup and destroy the finish. The trick is to use a water-based foundation. But if the idea of the foundation choking the skin every day, you can use a compact coupled with a concealer instead. The powder will cover up the shiny sunscreen and keep the skin looking natural and free of oil. Lightweight powders will hold longer to the face. So, that is the best option if you are going to have a long day.

Loose powder or compact powder

Apart from the obvious difference in their form, is there any other significant difference between a compact and loose powder? Yes, a few. Loose powder is better to achieve an even finish and silky texture. This makes it perfect to use as a setting powder. On the other hand, it is ideal for travelling. They are easy to apply with a brush with more precision. You will find them in a lot of different shades as well. You can use it as both the foundation and as a setting powder. If you are not savvy in using powders, the compact will be easier for you.

How to apply compact powder

The first thing that you should do before starting the makeup process is to clean the tools. Then, cleanse your face and use a good moisturiser. Applying a face primer will let the makeup stay on the face longer and will remove the irregularities from the skin. If you are using a regular compact, you will have to apply a foundation before the powder. But if it is a compact powder and foundation in one product, you can wear the powder with the foundation. Use a sponge or a brush to apply the powder to get an even finish and spread it on the face and neck.

Tips on buying Compact Powder Online

Getting the right set of products is the most important part of any health or beauty regimen. But when it comes to compact powders, people are spoilt for choice. Although it is a good thing that you have all these different options to choose from, the same thing also makes it a bit difficult to find the right one. However, it is still possible to figure out which one is right for you if you know what factors to consider in them. Here are a few things to look out for while you are shopping for them online.

  • The shade – The colour of the powder should be the same as your skin tone. If you use a powder that is lighter than your skin, it will turn grey and will appear like you are wearing a mask. Shades that are too orange or too pink will also have the same effect.
  • The finish – Even though it provides a matte finish in most cases, you can choose one with a subtle glow if you wish so. But people with oily skin should stick with the matte finish. And you might not want to wear shimmering powders to work.
  • Consider your skin type – A powder that works for oily skin might not be the best for dry skin. For dry skin, powders with creamy satin texture are the best as they won’t be as drying as others. Powders that contain talc and silica will help oily skin by hiding the shiny oil layer. You will find the best compact for dry skin and oily skin in Shops.ae.
  • The brush – If the compact that you buy will come with a brush in the package, check if it is soft and large enough. If they are subpar, which is mostly the case, buy another good quality brush that is soft and has big fluffy bristles.

Besides the powder itself, you will also need a few other basic items in your makeup kit.  Remember to keep blotting paper and sponges with you to use in case you apply too much powder. Finally, how well you can do the makeup depends on if you use the right technique or not. So, spend some time learning the knacks of applying makeup as well. Finally, don’t forget to check out all the other amazing products from the Health and Beauty category online.

Question & Answer

Are compact powders and setting powders different?

Yes, they serve the same purpose as loose powders, i.e. to even out the complexion and to make the skin appear smoother. The only difference in their form. They are made of silicone and wax, which make the powder stick together and make it easier to carry. But if your skin does not react friendly to silicone, you are out of luck. The setting powder simply removes the shine from the face and sets the makeup so that it can last longer. Some manufactures also called setting powder as finishing powder

What is the difference between a compact powder and a foundation?

If you are new to the world of skincare, all these different products that have almost similar functions can be confusing. At first, it might seem that the purpose of compact and foundation is the same. A compact evens out the complexion of the skin and hides the flaws. You can use the powder on top of the foundation or by itself it is a two in one powder. But the foundation, rather than highlighting the texture as much as the powder, specialises in giving the skin a heavy and long-lasting coverage with a creamy and even skin tone. They won’t give you that natural finish either.

Is compact powder good for the skin?

The purpose of a compact, just like any other makeup product, is not to nourish the skin. Rather it will give the skin a pleasing appearance. Therefore, it is neither good nor bad. But if you use it in the wrong way, you can mess up your skin. You should be careful to remove the powder with a makeup remover before going to bed. Another thing to look for is if the ingredients used in the powder are compatible with your skin or not. Some people will have allergic reactions to silicone. In that case, you can use any alternate products like a loose powder or a liquid foundation.

Does compact powder clog pores?

All makeup products can potentially clog the pores on the skin. But if you are careful to follow the right practices, it might not affect you a lot. Some products can clog more than others. For example, the liquid foundation has the tendency to form a layer over the sebaceous glands and block them. A compact does not clog as much. That’s why powder is a better choice for everyday use than a foundation. The purity of the ingredients is also a factor. Cheap makeup products use fillers that are large particles that only serve to add weight to the product. Always look for non-comedogenic makeup products.
