What are finishing & setting powders?
A setting powder is the finishing touch to your complexion makeup, seamlessly blending into your foundation and concealer for the ultimate mattified, yet radiant, finish. Available in loose powder and pressed pressed powder, they help ‘set’ liquid foundation formulas, and provide additional oil control for those with oily and combination skin types, for a base that lasts all day. Introduce setting powder into your makeup routine to accentuate your skin’s natural radiance, minimise the appearance of pores, and enjoy makeup that lasts all day (and all night). Whether you prefer a matte-finish, or a dewier more natural look, Armani beauty face powders provide long-lasting, flawless results. If your foundation is a liquid formula, whether a cushion foundation, or light, medium and full coverage, finish with setting powder for mattified radiance.
Finishing powders come in different formulas, to either include pigment for additional coverage, or without. For a setting powder that will mattify without pigment, so will match every skin tone, choose a translucent face powder formula. To mattify with added coverage, choose from Armani beauty’s Neo Nude Fusion Powder to find the perfect shade of face powder for your skin tone.
Pressed Powder vs. Loose Powder
Loose setting powder
Loose setting powder is perfect for those who want the most control over application. Opt for loose powder if your skin type is on the dryer side, using a powder brush, to dust a light application of setting powder only where needed, avoiding areas most prone to dryness. Oily skin types can press loose powder onto areas prone to shine, and dust away the excess for more targeted control.
Pressed powder delivers the same mattifying benefits in a convenient compact. Velvet-like but luminous, our Neo Nude Fusion Powder makes a perfect choice for those with an oily skin type as it allows for easy on-the-go touch-ups and buildable coverage, with a conveniently refillable compact. For oily or combination skin types, concentrate your powder application around your T-zone for a shine-free finish with natural results.
Effortlessly apply both loose and pressed powder with Armani beauty face makeup brushes for a finish that blends seamlessly with the rest of your complexion makeup.
