Weightless, organic, vegan and affordable – puroBIO cosmetics Indissoluble Compact Powder (€9.99) will definitely please many.
I, for one, absolutely love that it’s completely weightless and invisible on the skin, and also appreciate its sturdy, matte black plastic case (you know, to me nice packaging is always important).
It may not be the most oil-absorbing powder in the world, but lately I’ve decided that I’d rather have a natural-looking complexion and use blotting paper more often than have a powdery, cakey face that stays shine-free longer. #priorities
What I like to do these days is start with a mattifying primer (usually Make Up For Ever Step1 Skin Equalizer), apply a matte foundation and concealer wherever I need it, and finally set with powder only the areas where I’ve used concealer and the center of my forehead, which is where I get the oiliest. Then I always make sure I have blotting paper in my handbag (I use KIKO’s).
I find this to be the best oily skin makeup routine for the spring, when we tend to spend more time outside because of the nicer weather (at least I do!). Natural light is pretty unforgiving and what looks great in your bathroom mirror will often look like a hot, powdery mess when you’re outside – I’m talking from experience here!
I really love that the puroBIO cosmetics Indissoluble doesn’t give me that powdery face I very much dislike. I highly recommend it for all skin types! You may find it on Ecco Verde, an Austrian e-store that carries all things natural and organic (they ship to 90 countries worldwide).
If you have oily skin, what’s your favorite way to do your base? Would you rather look a little shiny or powdery? And if you have dry skin, do you still use setting powder?
