If you’re a makeup-lover, you know the importance of powder — you don’t need me to tell you. In the summer months, powder is a nonnegotiable, particularly if you’ve already got oily or combination skin, because it keeps your makeup from slipping and sliding all over your face. If you have a darker skin tone, sometimes it can be tough to find a great powder. Is the translucent powder really translucent, or does it leave a white cast? Well, we found 11 great powders that look beautiful on deeper skin tones.
Whether you want a fully matte look or a bit more of a glow, you’ll love using these pretty products. Plus, some of them even have SPF, which is amazing. There are affordable options, as in under $15 affordable, as well as vegan and cruelty-free styles. Plus, whether you want light coverage or a powder that can double as foundation, we found something that belongs in your makeup bag this season.
