Where do you use makeup setting powder? When it comes to getting your makeup to stay in place all day long, setting powder is about to be your new best friend. But if you’ve never used it, it might feel overwhelming to add a new product to your collection. Here at Elizabeth Mott, we love our Set For Life Setting Powder, so we’re here to answer every question you have about setting your look for life.

Where exactly do you put setting powder?

The best way to use our Set For Life Setting Powder is to put it on over your makeup or over moisturized skin. This will help that favorite look of yours to stay in place no matter what your day tries to throw at you. It’s lightweight, so it won’t weigh your makeup down, and it prevents a white cast in photos, so no worries about messing up that perfect selfie!

What is setting powder used for?

Setting powder is used to lock your makeup look in place. It helps your look to last longer, so that you can enjoy your day without touching up. It’s long-wearing, oil-absorbing, and has a matte finish, so it even enhances your look while keeping your perfectly done makeup in place from morning ‘til night.

Do you use setting powder before or after foundation?

Setting powder is best used after foundation as a way to set an already complete makeup look. If you want to add extra reassurance that your makeup isn’t going anywhere, add a makeup primer as well—it’s a great way to create a smooth, blank canvas for your favorite look.

Does everyone need setting powder?

Setting powder is a fantastic way to lock in your makeup look, so the truth is, if you want your look to stay put, setting powder has to be the next item you add to your makeup collection. It’s great for keeping your makeup in place, but it also prevents a white cast in photos, and has a matte finish, so no oil is going to peek through. This lightweight powder does so much more than keep your makeup in place, so it’s a must-have in our books!

What does baking with setting powder mean?

When you bake with setting powder, it means that you apply a translucent powder to your face (like our Set For Life Setting Powder!) and allow the warmth from your face to help it set your foundation. Then, you can brush the powder off of your face, leaving behind a beautiful look that’s set for life!
