It’s no secret that we’re fans of anything that creates flawless-looking skin—makeup included. The results may be temporary, but hey, we’ll take what we can get. So, here’s a shoutout to one of our favorite skin-perfectors: translucent loose powder.

One sweep of the stuff can make the world of a difference in any #lewk. Made with finely-milled particles, these powders blur the pores, mattify oil, and lend the skin a velvety finish. All this without emphasizing texture! In fact, if you get the right formula, it’ll basically be invisible. See for yourself with our two picks below.

This featherlight formula delivers an airbrushed finish. Simply apply it over your oily areas and under the eyes for an instantly brighter, fresher look. Worth every peso, if you ask us!
