From beauty counter to brushes, your guide to perfect foundation coverage
If you have oily skin, concentrate on buffing the powder into the T-zone to reduce shine. "Gently press the translucent powder into the face with a kabuki brush or softer powder puff to set the applied makeup," says Mills. Aerin Kabuki Brush, $48, and Donna Karan Cashmere Mist Powder with Puff, $58, are my personal favorites.
Our readers rank Guerlain Meteorites Perles, $58, as their favorite translucent powder for brightening the complexion and livening up skin. Trish McEvoy Translucent Finishing Powder, $38 is a firmly packed translucent powder, perfect for on-the-go touch-ups. But for everyday application, a loose powder like La Mer The Powder (another reader favorite), $65, allows you to choose how heavily or lightly you apply.
