How to Use Under Eye Setting Powder

Under Eye Setting Powder

First and foremost, you should always start with a good sculpting plan. This is to help define your face and give it an overall structure. Once this is done, it's best to use the best under eye setting powder. This helps set in place any lines or contours you've created earlier on and helps to give your face a very thorough and polished look.

How to Apply Setting Powder with a Powder Brush

Are you're ready to get rid of your T-zone's gleam for good and maximize the staying power of your cosmetics? All you need are a few tools and a little dusting of finishing powder to get a matte finish that lasts.

Step 1: Choose your product: 

Choose a mattifying powder with no shimmer. The best kinds are translucent and shine absorbing, not just matte. For best results, look for a fine powder that is made to absorb oil without adding any color to the skin. Some brands that make great primers for under eyes include Laura Mercier, Guerlain, Bobbi Brown, and Trish McEvoy.

Step 2: Position your mirror:

Sit a few inches in front of a well-lit mirror, and hold it between yourself and the sink. Make sure you can see both your face and the back of your hands in the reflection.

Step 3: Dust your brush:

Before applying any powder to your face, take a small pinch of powder and tap it into the lid. Then, swirl your brush in the container, tapping off excess.

Step 4: Sweep away shine:

Start dusting underneath one eye. Brush from the inner corner to as close as possible to your nose without getting any powder on the skin itself. Sweep across your forehead, under the next eye, and across your T-zone.

Step 5: Apply a finishing touch:

Once the powder is applied, take a clean fluffy brush and smooth out any harsh lines or clumps of powder that have been left behind from above your eyes. Next, brush from the ear down to underneath the jawline on both sides of your face.

When you are done with your finishing touch, swivel the brush back into the lid of the powder, and tap off any excess before closing it tightly, so it does not dry out.

Step 6: Repeat on the other side:

Repeat steps 1 through 5 on the other side of your face, being sure to dust underneath both eyes. You are now ready to have that photo shoot you've been waiting for!

How to Apply Setting Powder with a Makeup Sponge

You can also apply setting powder with a makeup sponge. Just like with the brush, you should tap some powder into your lid before swiping it across your face. Use short downward strokes to swipe across the skin from the center of your face outwards towards the hairline and jawline, where you most often get oil build-up.

Step 1: Apply your foundation and concealer:

Similar to using a brush, you'll need to apply some primer underneath each eye. You can use the same type of product that best fits your skin type or just stick with your favorite primer if it is oil-free and designed for makeup application. Use the sponge to gently pat on foundation over any acne spots or other blemishes. Give yourself a light dusting of powder to set the foundation. If you have dry skin, use a moisturizing primer so that your face isn't as matte as if you used an oil-free primer.

Step 2: Apply concealer where needed:

Depending on what look you are going for, apply some concealer over any spots that need extra coverage. You can use a brush to pat on the concealer, but you may find it easier to blend in with a sponge.

Step 3: Pop some primer on for good measure:

Apply some powder under your eyes with either method, being sure to get the inner corner closest to the nose and the outside corners. Make sure you don't get any powder on your skin and pat away any excess with a clean brush.

Step 4: Apply blush and bronzer:

If you want to use these products, apply them last after setting yours under eyes. This way, they won't come off as easily throughout the day as they will have a barrier protecting them from smudging or fading.

Step 5: Enjoy your beautiful, flawless finish!

You can use this technique with any type of makeup look that you like best. It will help even out your complexion and give you extra staying power for the long haul. You can also use it if you want to apply some eye shadow and keep the best look for longer. Feel free to skip step 5 before your makeup is complete if you like a more dewy finish.

When applying your powder, make sure you follow what product best fits your skin type or best applies with the method that best suits you. Hope this works for you!
