Refresh for May Day #27: My Favorite Finishing Powders

Finishing powders are like the decorations on a wedding cake – the cake may taste great without them, but with them, the cake becomes sensational.  I don’t necessarily use finishing powders every day, but you can bet that if I know my photo is going to be taken, both of these products will be used!

Make Up For Ever HD Pressed Powder


This sets your makeup beautifully – giving you a believable, not too matte finish.  Makeup lasts longer, prevents it settling into any fine lines you *might* have, and imperfections are blurred.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette


So this palette is another travel-must for me, and can be used in conjunction with the Make Up Forever powder as well.  This is different, however, because it gives more of a luminescent finish.  The three shades are perfect for highlighting, bronzing, and contouring.  The goal of this palette is to give you a “candlelight glow”… Since OR lights can not really be compared to the glow of candlelight I can’t necessarily tell you if that is the look achieved, but I can say that this gives a very flattering finish to your skin, with or without makeup underneath.
