Powder, whether compact or loose, used to be chalky. The point was to make your skin matte. Often, the results were disastrous! Your makeup creased, caked and made you look like a wax museum figure by the end of the day. Luckily, the beauty industry has become more sophisticated and has come up with new and improved products to meet all skin type needs.
Bobbi Brown is a good example when it comes to innovation. She just launched her Skin Perfecting Retouching Powders which have nothing to do with our old ideas about what powders can do for you. Bobbi’s Perfecting Powders come in 6 shades. Depending on the shade you choose, it will brighten, correct, hide redness or add warmth. They are undetectable! I was amazed at how natural they looked.
To add to the powder collection, Bobbi Brown has added two brushes to apply the powders flawlessly. They are soft and pick up just enough powder so as not to overdo it.
