These Are The Best Setting Powders For Different Skin Types

May 7, 2017 by Stephanie Melia
shefinds | beauty

Making sure your makeup stays put on your face in the summer is a major challenge. I swear, the heat is working against us! Who wants foundation melting off or getting all greasy halfway through an outdoor picnic date?

Setting powders can be your saving grace, but you need to choose the right one carefully based on what will work best for your skin type. Oily skin gals will need a little extra help during the summer months, while those with dry skin need more powder than they’re probably used to. So, by skin type, here are the best setting powders to avoid your makeup melting off in the heat.

Dry Skin: Even those of us with the driest skin have the misfortune of melting makeup from the summer heat. A holy grail product for women with dry skin (me included) is the super sheer bareMinerals Mineral Veil. This translucent powder is ultra light so it won’t cake on to our dry skin, but it makes sure our foundation won’t budge. I definitely notice a huge difference when I have this powder on versus when I don’t. And bareMinerals also makes a version of the Mineral Veil with SPF 25, perfect for those sunny, summer days.

Oily Skin: If you have oily skin, the heat, plus a full face of makeup is probably not a very fun experience. When it comes to setting, blotting and controlling oil throughout the day the BECCA Blotting Perfector Setting Powder is your best bet. The powder is mattifying, oil absorbing and reduces shine, all while providing a natural, lightweight finish. Oh, and it’s travel-friendly — so carry it with you for quick touch ups!

Normal/Combination Skin: If you have normal or combination skin and you’re looking for a product that will control any oil that builds up in the heat throughout the day, but isn’t too heavy, the Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder is for you. This powder is known to reduce shine and provide a matte finish for your foundation, while staying weightless on top of your foundation. Yes, please!

What is your go-to oil control product for the summer heat? Let us know in the comments!
