Baby Powder MagicTuesday, April 29, 2008
Ok, maybe you have seen people apply handfuls of baby powder on their faces. It may look ridiculous but it actually works! This is actually my best kept secret for outdoor shoots! After I have applied everything from foundation to lipstick to mascara, I set everything with Johnson's Cornstarch Baby Powder. Although, you have to apply this carefully for it may cake and may look very white on camera (specially when the photographer is using cool lights -so know your lighting!). When mixed with the right loose powder shades, this works wonders. The makeup stays on, even when you sweat!
>> Lightly dip your powder brush in baby powder mixed with a warm colored loose powder.
>> Dust all over the face to set your makeup in place.
>> With a blending brush, blend everything in circular motions until no traces of powder is visible.
>> Add more as needed.
