Setting Powders to Save Your Make-Up and Your Money
All the money and effort you put into your make-up look is utterly wasted if said look is gone within hours!
Previously we recommended our favourite setting sprays but setting powders should never be overlooked. Setting powders are particularly good for oily or shine proof areas of your face. They are also perfect for extending the wear of your make-up. For options that will save both your budget and your make up then try these six setting powders.

Maybelline Fit Me!
One of the reasons we often choose setting sprays over their powder alternatives is the texture. This Maybelline option completely contradicts that concern thanks to its lightweight texture. The formula is specially created not to clog your pores and cake your skin. It also offers a flawless natural finish that can be subtly topped up across the day.
Revolution Loose Baking Powder Banana
Achieve all-day perfection with the Light Banana setting powder which is brightening for all skin types. This finely-milled powder efficiently locks makeup in place, preventing oil build up, balancing skin tone and eliminating shine to maintain a smooth, poreless complexion, without leaving you with a cakey or chalky look. This also comes in a varity of shades to suit different skin tones.
Too Faced Peach Perfect Loose Setting Powder
If you are looking for a setting powder that will leave your complexion both natural and glowing, then this is your dream product! The formula is seamless and light for maximum subtle benefit. For an added bonus the powder has a gorgeously fruity scent. It is perfect for maintaining your make-up all day (or night) long!
Urban Decay All Nighter Waterproof Setting Powder
What can we say? We adored this product in its infamous setting spray form, and we love it in its powder compact too! This product ticks all the boxes offering a glowing complexion while simultaneously tackling oily or shine proof areas. The translucent product is also waterproof to guarantee a smooth finish.
Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish
The chalky finish of some powders tends to leave us reaching for spray alternatives instead. However, the ultra-lightweight properties of this Charlotte Tilbury option prove that this enviably soft sheen can be achieved by powder products too. Combining a full coverage effect with a fully matte finish this setting powder is well worth the extra cost.
Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder
The last thing anyone needs is for their powder to set them like a cake! This Laura Mercier product is lightweight and the ease with which it can be blended helps keep your make-up looking natural as well as long lasting. This powder is also a fantastic option to help blur out pores that tend to increase as the day drags on thanks to its mattifying effect.
