I love powder. If not then my foundation makes my skin too shiny. Something I have learned is that cheap powder will cake on you, so avoid buying stuff like CornSilk.

Hum ... I live in the tropics so I've rarely see a girl without it ... I mean .. here we have humid heat year round ... so yeah .. you must carry it if you go out at night -esp clubbing- cuz otherwise you'll looked like a boiled pejibaye

it seems wrong for me to want to go back to a light coverage powder in the wintertime but i just cant stand foundations or concealers right now.

^ You're in California, maybe you don't really even have winter :p

Hey, whatever you want to do, who's to tell you it's wrong?

fashionista-ta, i suppose thats kind of true!
to others its probably not even that cold but i swear im always cold! but i hope my skin doesnt get dry because of weather *must moisturize*

i think im gonna abandon the liquid foundations/concealers(havent tried mineral makeup but im not really interested in loose powders) and try a light pressed powder which so far is enough to diffuse my undereye circles. i havent used compacts in so long but i think it would be much easier for travel and reapplying.

its so funny because i swear i used to see other people use powder all the time but now i noticed a lot of brands dont even make pressed powders anymore! ive been eyeing the YSL one, soo pretty! its gold and the powder part is a heart with Yves Saint Laurent on it. lemme know if you guys seem any pretty pressed powder compacts!

That's fantastic.. why havent i thought of it before.
Brilliant. Thats the next make up essential i am going to get. I have that problem.. the blush seeps into my skin and I just cant get it to spread nicely. So I have just given up on it most of the times.

Thanks for the tip!

I never, ever use powder for anything else than setting concealer. I think matte skin looks so fake and stupid. And I hate seeing girls trying to cover up blemishes with powder foundation It doesn't cover sh!t, and it looks horrible.

^ i agree! i dont like powder foundation at all for that very fact! it really does make the skin/pores/blemishes/lines stand out in a bad way and can look very heavy easily.
