A transparent fixing powder is applied over the decorative cosmetics for the finishing touch. It evens out skin tone, mattifies, visually removes minor imperfections and fixes cosmetics (foundation, blush, concealer, eye shadow). In the package, the composition looks white, but in fact, it turns out to be transparent and suitable for any skin tone.
The benefits of fixing powder
Such a formulation is universal and suits almost everyone. It is suitable for any skin type, including sensitive epidermis, controls oily sheen and does not dry out at the same time. Furthermore, it is almost always tested by dermatologists and ophthalmologists. It is fragrance-free, acne-free, and suitable for contact lens wearers.
Formats and features of use
Loose transparent fixing powder is light, almost imperceptible on the skin, while compact one lays down in a denser layer and forms a matte finish. Their composition, as a rule, is the same. The main components are quartz and mica, which absorb excess sebum well and eliminate shine. Apply the composition with a wide, round brush (synthetic or natural) to provide a discreet finish. Shake off excess product before use and apply in circular motions.
Here are the main differences between loose and compact formats:
Loose fixing powder. It is the most popular and, perhaps, the most comfortable to use for beginners. It is especially suitable for those looking to create a light matte finish. Professionals often use it as a fixer for eyeshadows and lipsticks. To prolong their durability, take the product on a fluffy brush and lightly apply it to the desired area.
Compact format. You can keep this product in a cosmetic bag and carry it with you. At work, on an aeroplane, and before a date, it instantly removes oily sheen, hides irregularities and refreshes your face. Such a coating can even be applied with a sponge, for example, on the T-zone with light movements without pressure. Due to the higher compaction of the texture, such a fixing powder is likely to be more persistent. It is also an excellent solution for use as a primer.
It turns out that such a composition is a real cosmetic Photoshop. But with it, as in the case of filters in social networks, it is important not to overdo it. There is no need to apply it in several layers at once. Instead, one thin layer is sufficient.
Additionally, it is necessary to apply a fixing powder only in good lighting. It can seem invisible at home, under the lamp, but in daylight, a whitish mask will appear on the face, as if the skin was sprinkled with flour.
