Translucent Powder

If you want to prevent your makeup from slipping and sliding throughout the day, remove excess shine or smooth out uneven textures for a flawless finish, try using a translucent setting powder.

Translucent powder is a lightweight, colourless powder that is applied once makeup is complete and prior to setting spray to secure liquid and cream products and dissolve excess shine without adding any coverage. The absence of pigment prevents the cakey look and comes in handy for reducing shine on those “no-makeup makeup” days.

What is translucent powder?

Translucent powder, unlike other face powder, does not provide coverage. It is a colourless face powder that is instead intended for setting liquid and cream makeup, mattifying the complexion, reducing shine and smoothing out uneven textures.


Difference between translucent powder and baking powder

Translucent powder is a colourless product that sets makeup, reduces shine and smooths uneven textures. Coloured face powders can also set makeup but they have a pigment and therefore offer a level of coverage.

Baking mainly refers to letting powder sit on certain areas of the face, particularly areas where makeup is prone to creasing, to help it set more. Typically, you would bake by applying more powder in areas such as the under eyes and allow it to sit for about five minutes before sweeping away the excess product.
