How to apply makeup powder? - Applying a finishing touch

Step 1 - If you use loose powder, dip your powder brush into the powder. Shake or tissue off the excess.

Step 2 - Dust the face lightly in upward strokes.

Step 3 - Wipe the brush on a tissue, and then use it to remove excess powder from your face.

Apply pressed powder with a circular velour or sponge in light, upward strokes. Your velour or sponge won't last as long as powder. If your applicator looks shiny and caked, or if hardly any powder comes off on your face when you glide the velour or sponge across, it's time to wash it or get a new supply. Otherwise, the oils from your skin will build up on the powder to create a shiny, hardened film. In that case, scrape off the surface with a knife, and the powder will be as good as new.

FACT: Sixties model Penelope Tree chopped up silver sparkles in the meat grinder and mixed them into her powder so that she would literally shine.
