Hi,

I am not well informed on makeup and need a powder to carry as I have extremely oily skin. I was wondering if a loose powder was just for the initial makeup application and I should choose a pressed powder, or are they the same thing?

Thanks

I would choose a pressed power, purely for ease of use! Loose power literally goes everywhere and can sometimes (in my opinion) make you look a bit cakey if you wear it without any makeup. My favourite pressed powder is by Elf. Think it’s called HD translucent pressed powder or something like that. It’s not expensive and is normally at boots or Superdrug. It’s really good for my oily skin but also doesn’t dry me out either. Hope this helps!

Thanks for the reply! Does it leave a white cast?

Not if you use a big fluffy brush in my experience. X
