I test a lot of products. (You should see my bathroom counter — there isn’t an inch of free space.) But only a few of them make it into my daily routine. From the moment I tried Make Up For Ever’s HD Microfinish Powder last year, I knew it was a keeper. Think of it as a magic eraser for your face. Sounds too good to be true, I know. If you are like me, and starting to show signs of aging (hello, fine lines and unwanted freckles!), then you might welcome the powder’s ability to slightly blur those, um, imperfections.
Its 100% translucent mineral silica powder softens the skin’s appearance, especially through the camera lens. It’s the secret of many, many celebrity makeup artists, as it reflects light. If you use too much, you’ll end up looking like these scary celebrities (thanks BeautyEditor.ca!), but if you use just a little, it’s magic.
