Prom Prep: Powder

I know in summer, some girls like to avoid powder and go for dewy-looking skin, but if you want your makeup to last through a wedding or prom, I'd recommend loose powder just at the start of the day when you first apply your makeup to avoid looking oily and to keep your makeup in place for the day.

I use a loose Natural Collection one which is cheap as chips at £1.99 from Boots. The neutral translucent shade suits my skin quite well but I have to reapply it once during the day if I want it to really last. It's probably not the best powder out there but if you're on a low budget, go for this one.


I've had a few others but I none of them really stand out in my mind as brilliant use-for-your-prom ones.... I've used Natural Collection powder for years as it does the job and is great for my little budget but I think I might invest in a MAC Mineralize SkinFinish Natural. I'll let you know if I decide to part with the £18.50 or not!

If you use a translucent setting powder, it might be a good idea you give that one a miss for a prom or wedding as in photos, I've heard it can make you appear like someone has knocked a a bit of talcum powder in your face! Don't believe me? Have a look at this snap of Kidders....

A nice post. The loose powder is a must in the summers as it keeps your makeup in place. If you are looking for a non-surgical facelift then thread lift is a good option.
