What do you put under foundation powder?
Can you just put on powder foundation? It can be used alone without foundation to even out the skin tone and give you a smooth finish. Just remember that setting powders don’t offer much coverage, so if you have redness or blemishes, you may want to use a powder foundation instead.
Can I use powder instead of primer? It’s not meant to be used as a primer, and it won’t fill in your pores or fine lines the way a primer does. A setting powder can help to mattify your skin and make your makeup last longer, but it won’t give you the same smooth canvas as a primer.
How do you make powder foundation look smooth? Swish the brush back and forth over the powder foundation using short, back-and-forth strokes, then press the powder in a slight rolling motion all over your skin for a smooth finish that doesn’t look cakey.
