    Hi everyone,

    I use a liquid base foundation on my face. I am considering beginning to use powder too, to prevent shine, but am worried it may go orangey due to oil in the skin or something?

    Anyone got any tips for powders, or can recommend good powders?

    Get a Translucent Powder and it shouldn't go orange x

    If the product is turning orangey it's because the chemicals in it are oxidizing as you wear it and turning colour.

    I use a Bobbi Brown foundation/powder combination. The powder has no colour to it and I buff it into my skin using a kabuki brush (MAC 182). Gives a nice flawless finish, blends the product really well and uses as little powder as possible.

    For touch ups in the day maybe use blotting paper instead of adding on extra product. You might also want to look at the finish of your current foundation and switch to something with a very matte finish and add in a mattifying primer underneath, Illamasqua do an especially good one.

    I use the Bobbi Brown combo too, it's fabulous I also use Benefit's Porefessional primer, you can put it on under your makeup in the morning and use it for touch ups later in the day too

    Are you using the liquid and powder together? If you want to get ride of the shine you can actually use a setting powder to get rid of it. So if you love the liquid makeup you really don't have to change it at all. And have you thought about using MAC? They provide alot different types of makeup depending on your skin type, your preference of liquid, powder, etc and also on the level of how much coverage you want. There is also sephora.com that has amazing products. The best thing about both MAC and sephora.com is that they provide alot of hypoallergenic products.

    MAC mineralise skin finish natural - just amazing. And on days when you want a lighter coverage, you can use it on its own.
