What is loose setting powder?

DE'LANCI Matte Loose Powder

Loose setting powder is a fine dust with nano-particles that helps in absorbing oil from the skin and sealing any product beneath it. Products like DE’LANCI Matte Loose Powder also have the ability to blur discoloration to some extent and conceal fine lines giving the perfect matte finish. You can apply the loose setting powder over a clean and moisturized skin or after primer, foundation, and concealer application to set all these products for a long-lasting matte look. We’re putting together this how-to-apply loose setting powder guide for you to stay with the latest makeup trend!

Clean and moisturize the face

Getting the base right is equally important when using loose powder for setting your makeup for extended hours. Here’s what you must follow to get the best out of our guide on how to apply loose setting powder!

  • Start by cleaning the face so that you have a dirt and oil-free skin with its natural glow.
  • Take care to use a cleansing agent that suits your skin type so that it is neither striped off too dry nor made extra oily.
  • To achieve the best-baked makeup look, it’s best to stick to an oil-free cleansing agent.

2. Apply primer

Apply primer

Once your skin has absorbed the moisturizer, it’s time to give the skin an even look using a high-quality primer.

  • Make use of this product even if you’re going out to work every day.
  • The use of primer will help minimize the pores and wrinkles on the face showing an evenly toned skin.
  • Again, wait for the skin to absorb and product before applying anything else.

3. Use the right foundation

Use the right foundation

Because you are going to seal the base makeup on the face, it is extremely important that you pick the right foundation for your skin.

  • Look for a foundation that gives a matte look and also does not make the skin dry.
  • At the same time, opt for the shade that will blend in with your skin giving it a coverage as though it is the natural look!
  • Let the foundation get absorbed by the skin before moving on to the next step!

4. Conceal if needed

Conceal if needed

For a perfectly flawless look, use color correction and concealing with the right product using DE’LANCI Concealer Contour Multifunction Palette.

  • Take care to apply the concealer on all blemishes, spots, and of course any dark circles under the eyes.
  • You can also use the concealer to give your face a lifted effect by applying it just above the cheekbones, from the corner of the mouth and nose upwards.
  • Blend it in and wait a few seconds for the perfect effect.
  • Check out our expert’s advice on How to Apply Concealer for Beginners to get the best out of this step.

5. Choose the right shade of loose setting powder

Choose the right shade of loose setting powder

The best loose setting powders come in different shades including the white or translucent variant.

  • While fair-toned skins do well with the white or translucent variant of the loose setting powder, other skin tones may need those that contain some color!
  • One of the best ways to pick the right tone for your loose setting powder is to test it on the cheeks, neck, and jawbones.
  • Make sure that you pick one that is at least one shade lighter than your natural skin tone and completely matches the foundation color.

6. Give the final baking effect

Give the final baking effect

The first thing to do now is to pour some of the loose setting powder onto a makeup tray and then take it up with the right tool.

  • Use a large fluffy brush from DE’LANCI Professional Makeup Brushes Set or a powder puff that comes with the pack.
  • Tap off excess powder, and apply it onto the T-zone of the face. Move on to the areas under the eyes, and then the cheeks if necessary.
  • Make sure that you swirl the puff or brush to evenly distribute the powder so that it seals the foundation and concealer beneath.
  • If you’re applying it directly over a moisturized skin, you may want to give the face a second dusting of the product.

7. Finish the makeup

Finish The Makeup

Time to finish the makeup by applying the contour, blush, and highlighter products on the cheeks, on and above the cheekbones.

  • You can choose to lighten the blush and contour shades and give the face a more natural look by just running the large fluffy brush or powder puff all over the face.
  • This will help transfer the loose powder trapped in them onto the face and also give it the final sealing and baking effect.
  • Make your pick of blush color from among DE’LANCI Multi-functional Double-headed Blush Stick for the perfect hue!
