The experts at MAKE UP FOR EVER have solved our beauty problems once again with their HD Microfinish Powder. The dilemma with foundation and powder is that on one hand, you want your flaws hidden, your complexion flawless and your skin radiant. On the other hand, you want it all to look natural. What if there was a way to get that perfect Photoshop finish without leaving a trace of makeup on your white blouse? Well, it’s the year 2014 and that miracle has happened. It’s called HD Microfinish Powder by the professionals at MAKE UP FOR EVER.
I was doubtful about the claims behind this product. According to MAKE UP FOR EVER,
[Our] products use formulas to create a new generation of makeup which is both invisible on HD cameras and to the naked eye.
I don’t like to wear makeup and when I do, I like it to look like I’m not wearing any so I had to give this powder a try.
The powder is a very fine, white powder that I thought would be too pale for my brown skin. Wrong. I also believed that it wouldn’t give me much coverage. Wrong again. Or that it simply wouldn’t do what it claimed. Very wrong.
MAKE UP FOR EVERs HD Microfinish Powder is truly, a breakthrough beauty product. It’s made of a 100% mineral silica that gently fills fine lines and pores. Worn as a finishing powder, it not only sets my foundation without adding any more bulk to my make up, but it adds a sheer glow that I usually only achieve with Photoshop’s blur tool.
For work or during the day, I can wear it over my moisturizer for a barely there finish that very simply, makes my face look better. It doesn’t completely cover and blemishes, red spots, freckles or even out skin tone, but it dulls any flaws without hiding them and adds a very slight glow.
It suits every skin tone and you can wear it alone, over your foundation, or for touching up. It’s also talc-free so it won’t dry out your skin.
The best part? I can tell people I’m not wearing any make up because if I wipe my face with a tissue or a dinner napkin, there’s no trace of color. Telling your friends you actually do look this good without any makeup is worth every gram of this powder.
