What powder is used for and how to use it in the right way

To have an impeccable result, the secret is to dose the quantity. Apply a little powder at a time, preferably with a brush with soft bristles, dabbing gently so as not to drag the underlying product away.
Depending on your needs, there are various types of powders with different functions.
There transparent powder it is colorless and suitable for all skin types, it does not alter the make-up and gives a natural and "invisible" result. With flash light it can create a nasty flashback effect.
