What is a loose powder for? Loose setting powder holds on to your foundation, concealer, and other face makeup and gives you that just-applied look pretty much all day long. It can even be used on days when you want to go foundation-free, opting for a minimal, makeup-free look while still giving your face some coverage.
Can loose powder be used daily? Still, if you use it every day, there are downsides to this cosmetic product. Dermatologist Dr. Shefali Trasi-Nerurkar told The Health Site that face powder can be drying to skin, since it might absorb a little too much of the skin’s natural oil, and it may also lead to clogged pores and acne.
Can I use loose powder without 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.
