Beauty Buzz: “Ask Amy”

Dear Amy,

Can you recommend a powder for setting my foundation? All of the ones I’ve tried seem so thick and “cakey.”

On my last trip to Sephora, I discovered a loose powder that I just love – Make Up For Ever’s High Definition Microfinish Powder. It is pure white in the jar, but it applies translucent and makes skin look airbrushed, not dry and powdery. It really does keep my t-zone shine free almost all day (not an easy feat!). It’s a new product, so hopefully they will offer it in a pressed-powder version soon. I hope you like it!
