Maybelline is considered one of the most common and successful brands. This company has been manufacturing high-quality cosmetics for several decades. An example of good production is Maybelline powder.
It can be difficult to find high-quality powder that does not clog pores and truly mattifies the skin. Therefore, products from Maybelline are so popular. In this article we will consider the benefits of powder from this brand as a whole, and several of the most popular models separately.
Maybelline was founded in the last century. They are engaged in the production of high-quality decorative cosmetics. In the assortment of the brand you can find products for the face, and for the lips, and for the eyes. Almost all new products from Maybelline are quickly sold out and immediately get good user reviews. To date, the company decided to expand its range a bit, starting to engage in the production of makeup products.
Features and Benefits
It is matting and tinting agents that are considered the most successful of the entire range of the company.
This is a fairly budget option for creating the perfect complexion that always pleases with quality. Maybelline powder is suitable for girls with different skin types. You can choose the right product for yourself, because manufacturers offer tools to solve a variety of problems.
Since many girls use powder almost daily, it is very important that this tool does not harm the skin. This is possible if the product has a good composition without unnecessary chemical elements that simply spoil the skin.
However, it is worth remembering that the basis of powders, as before, is talc.
And he, as you know, can clog pores. Even the most modern and environmentally friendly products still can not be completely safe. So that the product does not harm you, each time it must be completely washed off the skin. If you do not, then because of the purchase of pores, you may have acne or comedones, which will only add to your problems. Correctly rinse off the powder - this means not just rinsing the face with warm water. Makeup must be removed from the face with a cotton pad dampened in a special make-up remover, milk or micellar water.
After you have cleaned your skin, it is advisable to moisturize it with a nourishing night cream.
The palette of shades of powders from Maybelline is quite rich. Of course, tonal creams and concealers are more diverse, but also matting products can be selected for any complexion. The most popular shades are now the colors under the numbers 15, 9 and 17. Powders of neutral shades are bought up the fastest. Next in popularity are the tones for "snow white", which also very quickly fall into the category of "sold out".
But dark colors are often chosen for sculpting.
How to apply
With how to apply powder, few people can have problems. But there are features of applying powder to certain types of skin.
First of all, if you have dry skin, then you should prepare it for applying makeup. For this, you can use a primer or a simple moisturizer. And owners of oily skin can additionally use suitable color concealers to better mask imperfections. Powder is a product that does not mask imperfections, but only makes the skin more matte, and make-up - as resistant as possible.
Therefore, do not expect that with one layer of powder you can hide all your rashes and redness.
As for directly applying face powder, there are also subtleties here. The product is applied to the face surface as thinly as possible so as not to clog pores and not create a mask effect.
Also blend the powder correctly. Be sure to pay attention to the transition zone of the neck to the face. There should not be a strong contrast in this place.
Since in this case, the makeup will look very unnatural.
