Rageism Beauty Loose Powder Foundation is made up of fine triple-milled minerals – and is both water and sweat resistant to ensure it lasts longer! Our loose powder foundation is perfect for complexions that need dry coverage. Using Rageism Illuminating Primer first is recommended, as this smooths over and illuminates the surface. The Deluxe Buffer Brush is designed to help you skilfully apply the Loose Powder Foundation over pigmentation, rosacea, redness, blemishes, and acne scars.
As this powder is made up of gentle ingredients, it’s safe to apply after cosmetic procedures such as laser and waxing. It is also triple-milled and quite pigmented to ensure that it won’t crease in fine lines and will blend easily. This helps achieve perfect coverage without excessive use.
We have eight shades available for you, ranging from fair with cool undertones to dark with golden undertones. To choose the shade that best suits your complexion, you must first find out what your undertone is. Your undertones can range from pink to yellow, golden, neutral, blue, and so on.
If you’re unsure how to find your undertones, you can identify them by checking out the colour of your veins. If your veins are a green colour, then this indicates you have warm undertones. If you have veins that are purple or blue, then you have cool undertones. If you think your veins are either a blue or green colour, then this indicates you may have neutral undertones. Neutral undertones just mean that your undertones are about the same colour as your skin shade is.
If you’re still unsure about your undertones, skin undertone examples can be found online with a quick google search. After you have determined your undertones, you should always make sure you match this shade to your chest.
Loose powder foundation can be a great option if you’re finding liquid foundation to be a hassle to put on. Powder foundation is much less dense than liquid formulas, so most people find that powder foundation works best on combination skin or oily skin. It can also work on uneven skin or uneven skin tones if you apply it strategically. However, remember that if you have any skin concerns about foundation powder - or have sensitive skin and sun damage - it is best to first consult your dermatologist.
First, though, you may be wondering what the difference between setting powders and loose powders is. Setting powder is specifically designed to keep foundation in place and to stop any makeup from rubbing off or smearing away. This powder is available in two forms, pressed and loose, and can be bought in semi-tinted tones to match your skin tone. Many use setting powders for a flawless finish. If you’re using setting powder, you may also consider using setting spray. Setting spray works much like setting powder does - except you put it on as a finishing touch at the end of your makeup routine.
Loose powder foundation can be used instead of foundation - or loose powder itself can be used to set liquid foundation concealers. In a way similar to how setting powder does it, this ensures that your makeup does not move around, lasts longer, and doesn’t rub off. This product is usually used in the ‘baking’ method of setting foundation.
Loose powder can also be used to define your contour lines and to create a makeup look that is ‘chiselled.’ They’re also great for setting heavy makeup looks where the flawless finishing might need some extra help.
Bobbi Brown loose powder with a sheer finish is long-lasting and can help you achieve a matte finish. This both perfects and sets your foundation, ensuring that you achieve that smooth look you deserve. This loose powder is usually used if you want a natural look and can be applied over foundation with a powder brush.
You may also be interested in the Bobbi Brown Skin foundation. This foundation provides full coverage with 16-hour long wear. It has also been formulated to be weightless, acting much like a second skin would. This foundation has natural minerals powders and marine sugar cane to control shine and oil that may sometimes be present. It still delivers hydration despite controlling these levels and leaves a matte coverage.
Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics also has some great loose mineral foundation and loose mineral powder foundation. Their Color Pro Natural Silky Loose Powder is ultra-fine and has a flawless finishing touch to create a flawless complexion. This loose powder creates a translucent shade that is great for a variety of skin tones. This lightweight formula also suits most foundations and has a sheer texture. It also ensures your makeup is long-lasting, accomplishing partly matte finishes. Tinted moisturisers can also be used as a blend between makeup and skincare.
Other brands such as Loreal Paris, Nude By Nature, Fenty Beauty, Laura Mercier, and Anastasia Beverly Hills can also offer great loose powder foundation and liquid foundations that you need to get that flawless finish. Other products such as perfecting powder, lip balm, lip liner, dual finish, and pressed powder (or pressed mineral powder) can also be found at these brands. Many of these products can be great for covering dark circles or blemishes.
Mineral makeup has many benefits! The difference between mineral makeup and regular makeup is that mineral makeup contains ingredients that are better for your skin than traditional makeup. This means that mineral makeup won’t clog your pores and, in some cases, may even aid in the prevention of acne. Mineral makeup can usually offer some sun protection, soothe sensitive skin, and add at least medium coverage. Some of these also have buildable coverage. It can also act as a great finish powder and have a great feel on your skin. Finishing powders can be effectively used to keep your foundation in place for a great length of time.
There are some key ingredients you should look out for while buying mineral makeup, these include iron oxides, zinc oxide, mica, and titanium dioxide. Some people also find that hyaluronic acid is an ingredient that works well with their skin. Be sure to look out for natural ingredients before buying your makeup, as some makeup products may claim they are organic but are not. This is known as ‘greenwashing.’ For example, a product may be advertised as organic - but may only have one organic ingredient. You can also find organic versions of products such as body wash, body lotions, hand creams, hair colour, fake tan, and lip care. You can also find natural hair products, specifically for damaged hair or general products such as dry shampoo. Even items such as hair brushes can now be ethically sourced.
Most makeup brands such as Mac Cosmetics, Estée Lauder, and bareMINERALS Original have makeup travel options already available for you in the form of makeup kits that are specially designed for travel. However, if you’re looking to save some money, you could always buy the original product and then place it into separate smaller bottles that are ideal for travelling. It’s also best to only grab the necessary makeup brushes you’ll need on your travels, as this will help minimise the space you take up. A kabuki brush can prove especially helpful, as you can use it to apply any sort of powder to large areas of your face.
bareMINERALS Original has a great Original Loose Powder Foundation that you may consider grabbing, regardless of whether you are travelling or not. Other great foundation options include Macs Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation, Laura Mercier Matte Powder Foundation, or Youngblood Hi-Definition Hydrating Mineral Perfection Powder.
Products like BB cream and CC creams can also be great options for you! BB cream is hydrating and is more suitable for dry skin, whereas CC cream offers more coverage than BB cream does. CC cream is usually also lighter, coming with more of a soft matte or matte look. As CC cream is lighter, this means it works best for acne-prone and oily skin. Most CC creams also contain anti-aging properties and mineral SPF.
As well as placing makeup into smaller bottles, you can also consider doing the same with perfume. Whether you are a fan of Home Fragrance by Dusk or can’t go anywhere without Giorgio Armani – travelling light does not mean you have to leave your favourite fragrances behind!
