What is the difference between pressed and loose finishing powder?
The primary distinction between pressed finishing powder and loose finishing powder is in their forms and textures. As the name implies, pressed finishing powder comes in a compact form that is pressed into a solid cake, whereas loose finishing powder comes in a loose, finely milled powder form.
The application of these two products can differ due to their different textures. Because it does not fly around when applied, pressed finishing powder is easier to apply and less messy than loose powder. Loose powder is more difficult to apply because it is difficult to control the amount of product that comes out of the container.
Both products aim to set and perfect your makeup look in terms of finish and effect, but the results can be slightly different. Loose finishing powder has a more natural and sheer finish, making it ideal for everyday use or for those who prefer a more natural appearance. Pressed finishing powder, on the other hand, has a slightly more matte and polished finish, making it ideal for special occasions or achieving a more dramatic look.
Overall, the decision between pressed finishing powder and loose finishing powder boils down to personal preference and the desired effect. Both products have advantages, and it's important to try them both to see which one works best for you and your skin type.
How do you apply pressed powder?
The application of pressed finishing powder is relatively straightforward, and it can be applied using a brush or a sponge. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to apply pressed finishing powder:
- Start by preparing your skin. Make sure your foundation or concealer is applied evenly and allowed to set before applying the pressed finishing powder.
- Select a brush or a sponge to apply the pressed finishing powder. A powder brush is ideal for applying the product to large areas of your face, while a sponge is better suited for targeted touch-ups or for applying the product under your eyes.
- If using a brush, gently swirl it in the Pressed Finishing Powder, tap off any excess powder, and then apply it to your face in a circular motion, starting from the centre of your face and working outwards.
- If using a sponge, gently dab it into the pressed finishing powder and then press it onto your skin, paying particular attention to any areas that tend to get oily or shiny.
- Blend the powder into your skin, making sure there are no visible lines or streaks.
- Repeat the process until you achieve your desired level of coverage and finish.
- If necessary, use a clean brush or sponge to blend away any excess powder or to touch up any areas that need it.
Remember to be gentle when applying pressed finishing powder, as pressing too hard can lead to an uneven or cakey finish. Additionally, make sure to choose a shade that matches your skin tone to avoid any colour mismatch or unevenness.
