Heya! We’ve reviewed my favorite concealer (seen HERE), now it’s time talk about my favorite loose/setting powder that I cannot live without. If the Nars Radiant Creamy concealer has been making me look awake, this Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder has definitely made me look fully alive and kicking! LOLz! I cannot imagine my face without this 🙂
Actually, there’s a lot of us that have fallen in love with this loose setting powder. Its consistency is soft and transparent, yet it flatters almost all skin tones. It has a sheer coverage that’s buildable and gives a very natural effect. Apart from being able to absorb excess oil and mattifying the skin, the best thing about this is that it sets your makeup or concealer and you’re ready to go to town.
Right after applying my favorite Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer (Custard shade) around my undereye circles, I then apply this Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder (using a beauty blender) to set it and let it cook or bake while I’m doing other stuff on my face. Yes, this setting powder is the secret to every contouring, conjuring, baking, strobing, stuffing and cooking out there. 🙂 Once you’re done baking, you can then brush off the excess powder on your face and make sure that it looks normal and natural, not overdone or overcooked. Trust me, you don’t wanna look like you fell in an open sack of flour, or better yet, the next fright in American Horror Story. 🙂
Anyways, I definitely recommend this Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder very mucho, together with Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer. But if you have another favorite concealer or even another favorite loose powder, well, as long it sets your makeup, it covers your facial landmines, it makes you look pwetty, Gurl, you’re on the right track to looking radiant, glowy, awake and alive!
