3 of the Best Foundation Powders

Sealing your foundation in place

No matter what your skin type or which foundation you use, sealing it in with a powder is a must for me.

Here are 3 of my favourites.

Best for all over radiance: Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light, £38 
Dim Light is one of my favourite make-up items of all time. It seals your make-up in place and looks luminous, not shiny. You get the best of both worlds, make-up that doesn’t move and a fresh, glowing skin finish. Perfection. Brides take note – this is the dreamiest powder to set your base with.

Best for extra coverage: Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Foundation Powder, £32
To completely perfect your face, this powder from Laura Mercier is your go-to. This seals everything in place but adds a tiny bit more coverage to your base, creating a flawless finish. You could even use this alone as a sheer foundation if you wanted. I love this for adding a little bit more depth to more sheer foundations. It works especially well to mattify oily skin. Note: this comes in several shades, so you’ll need a colour match.

My newest favourite: Bobbi Brown Nude Finish Illuminating Powder, £39
Bobbi Brown have completely stolen my heart with their new illuminating powders. These are exactly what the beauty hall has been missing; a powder with built in illuminator to seal and set but add luminosity. If you get just one new thing this spring, make it one of these powders.
