Charlotte Tilbury Charlotte’s Genius Magic Powder, £33




GET instantly filtered skin with this stunning, light-diffusing setting powder from Charlotte Tilbury.
If you’re looking for a soft glow without the glitter, this provides a radiant finish alongside mattified, smoother-looking skin.
The super light texture glides seamlessly onto the skin and minimises the look of large pores without looking cakey.
Oil-prone complexions will benefit from reduced shine with its natural sebum absorber that mattifies.
Made with 99% unscented, natural, raw ingredients and free of talc, this is great for sensitive skin types.
The weightless texture looks invisible on the skin yet provides a gorgeous, radiant glow which is perfect for selfies.
I love the handy disperser which closes after use, meaning you never unnecessarily lose leftover product.



Gosh Primer and Set Hyaluronic Powder, £9.99






DOUBLE up your primer needs with this amazing product which primes and sets at the same time.
This multi-tasking product can be used as a primer underneath makeup, a mattifying powder or as a setting powder.
The silky, loose powder creates a flawless, matt finish and an airbrushed appearance while reducing shine and redness in an instant.
Apply over foundation to lock makeup in place and keep unwanted shine under control or use itself to reduce the appearance of fine lines and imperfections.
For a seriously long-lasting makeup look, mix some of this in with foundation before applying and then set again.



Bobbi Brown Sheer Finish Loose Powder, £30






I FIRST picked this up at the airport and it’s been a makeup staple of mine since.
This loose finishing powder comes in a yellow shade that helps brighten skintones and banish redness.
I use this to bake under the eyes and find it incredibly long-lasting and natural looking on the skin.
This sheer powder is 100% oil-free and oil-absorbing, with vitamin E for the most comfortable wear.




MAC Skinfinish Powder, £25.50




FOR those looking for a bit of extra coverage on top of their base, Mac Mineralize Skinfinish is your go to powder.
This compact product contains a slow-baked powder with 77-Mineral Complex that provides a natural, semi-matte dimensional finish.
I carry this in my handbag daily for touch ups and when I want to blot away excess shine and cover up any redness that shines through.
Also looks great in photographs and won’t cause any flashback.



Laura Geller Filter Finish Baked Powder, £18





LIVEN up your skin with this instant filter radiant powder by Laura Geller.
Achieve a photo-ready complexion with colour-correcting pigments which help provide a sheer, silky finish.
This compact powder combines three shades to even out skin tone, blur imperfections and deliver a healthy, radiant glow.
Blending seamlessly together, the powder perfectly reflects light and balances your complexion, whilst holding make-up in place for a smooth, refined finish.
Great for those who want a healthy looking glow as opposed to a matte finish.
