Powder, be it loose ( mostly preffered ) or pressed, its essential to set your foundation!

You try half of the face with the foundation with a thin layer of loose powder, and the other side with no powder. The powder side will last longer and it wont run or look blotchy.

Talk about blotchy, loose powder will help your blush look seamless, because there's a soft layer on the skin so the powder blush goes on smoothly and you can blend it before it absorbs on the skin, which is the problem with foundation with no powder, the skin will absorb it, and you'll have a patch of blush on your face.

Loose powder is fantastic in big amounts under the eyes, so if you do any kind of dramatic look, the eyeshadow will lay on top of the powder, not on the skin under your eyes, so its easy to remove dirt and even mascara boo boos.

Great points!

I agree-- Powder definitely gives the face an airbrushed and seamless look that you can't get with creams!

In the T-zone in the summer definitely... loose powder.

Ale - is that true of tinted moisturizer as well? Should I be using powder all over the face to set that or no?
Great tip on the eye makeup

Exactly! Nothing is less flattering than a shiny face, with or without makeup

I wear Nivea's baby powder.

I wear sunblock (for children) and it never completely soaks in so I just put on a thin layer of baby powder.

Sunblock topped with talc doesn´t sound good... :p

You should use less, or use a sunblock meant for the face (not greasy).

i use powder mostly in winter, just to finish off my foundation and i sometimes use a little in summer to minimise oily tendencies. Those oil blotting papers are good and they are just covered in powder!
