Why: As strange as it sounds, sometimes the whole point of wearing makeup is to look like you're not wearing makeup at all. And in a season when loading up on moisturizers — sometimes oily, greasy or shiny ones — is imperative, making your dewey glow look natural is of the utmost importance.
That's where blotting powder comes in. Melissa Page's Invisible Blotting Powder isn't the kind of makeup that needs flashy packaging or the promise of ultra-dense pigments or a list of a million skin-enhancing ingredients to entice you. It's the effects of this simply packaged, stark white powder that make it a superb buy.
Start with a fresh, even palette for all your other "fun" makeup, or simply do a quick shine-busting touch up, with this works-on-everyone tool. Your foundation and powder will last longer with a coat of this primer, and the shine you actually want — the shimmer from your expensive bronzer or highlighter — won't get lost in sticky pools of moisturizer.
