Mineral Veil, HD Microfinish Powder, Light Reflecting Setting Powder. I see these a lot among my clients’ makeup arsenals, chiefly because my clientele all have breakout issues. Summer can really be gross. There’s very little that’s worse than a greasy mess over layers of makeup. These powders are not just setting powders, they do serve a great purpose for oily skin; they absorb oil like no one’s business and the white ones don’t clog pores or irritate inflamed skin.
Thing is, considering they run anywhere from $20-50, and considering most are made with just one ingredient, the white ones in particular, do we really need this? In my opinion, this is really one of the things we can indeed save money on. Like I said, these powders are great. But they’re not all there is.
