Pourquoi mettre une poudre visage ?

Why should we apply face powder?

This product has increasingly established itself as an essential final step in the makeup routine. Indeed, the powder serves to mattify and smooth the skin while unifying the complexion.

What is the purpose of a unifying face powder?

Far from being unnecessary, finishing powder is among the essentials for successful beautification. It is multi-functional.

  1. It allows toprevent the skin from shining throughout the day. Often enriched with purifying active ingredients such as zinc, it reduces shine in certain areas of the face by absorbing excess sebum.

  2. It also sets the foundation or tinted serum as well as the blush applied on the cheeks.

  3. It provides a velvety appearance to the skin, while unifying it. Some powders even offer additional coverage to the classic foundation for a flawless skin. This effectively helps to conceal imperfections (small pimples, redness...).

  4. It protects the skin against external aggressions such as pollution, harsh weather, cigarette smoke, etc.

Face Powder: What effect depending on the skin type?

Face powder behaves differently depending on the skin type and the desired effect. As a natural fixative, loose powder is dedicated to oily skin types with the aim of mattifying them. Compact powder, on the other hand, is more commonly used on dry skin for makeup touch-ups.

  • The loose powder, the ally of oily skin.

    Light, airy and sometimes translucent, loose powder mattifies the complexion, providing a subtle finish with a natural coverage. It aids in setting makeup. Typically containing targeted active ingredients such as talc, this type of powder absorbs excess sebum and thus reduces shine throughout the day. Moreover, its "dry" texture helps to counteract the sometimes shiny effect of foundation or tinted serum applied just before. Loose powder is applied with a suitable brush. Compared to pressed powders, loose powders are often more difficult to measure and apply. It is quite common to dirty one's clothes when applying this type of product.

  • The compact powder for dry skin.

    Often tinted, the compact powder is more recommended for dry skin types. Used for touch-ups, it provides makeup and sculpts the face while offering additional coverage to pre-applied treatments. This powder is ideal for concealing minor imperfections, redness, and dark circles, providing a unified and natural result.

Why should you adopt our mattifying loose powder?

Comprised of 97% natural origin ingredients, our translucent mattifying powder targets shiny and oily skin. A true hybrid product between skincare and makeup, it contains the following active ingredients.

  • Zinc PCA (1%): This element significantly reduces sebum secretion. Paired with L-Pyrrolidone Carboxylic Acid, zinc promotes cellular differentiation and strengthens the skin's barrier function to protect it from future outbreaks.

  • Hyaluronic Acid (0.1%): This hygroscopic compound can hold up to a thousand times its weight in water, making it a potent skincare ingredient for instant hydration.

For a polished finish, favour a special loose powder brush or a fabric puff. Gather a sufficient amount of product, lightly tapping it on the back of your hand. Then, apply it to your face, focusing on the T-zone: forehead, nose and chin.
