Pressed Powder Makeup is a Versatile Alternative For Women

by: Samantha Steiner

Just as an artist prepares a canvas, so to makeup artists begin by properly preparing the skin. Selecting the right foundation for one's skin type is the essential first step to the successful application of makeup. Other make-up, such as lipstick and eyeliner, will be enhanced by the selection and correct application of a proper foundation.

Experimenting with the right foundation is a job for each woman to decide. You'll realize that what works for another woman might not work for you. You can start by deciding on what type of makeup you would like to use.

There is an alternative to liquid makeup, the second camp is pressed powder makeup. Liquid makeup is often messier than pressed powder makeup and can also be much more convenient. Rather than constantly going through the hassle of replacing sponge applicators, powder makeup users will only need a small selection of beauty brushes to apply their makeup. These brushes may include kabuki brushes, buffer brushes, or contour brushes.

How often have you looked into your purse, only to find that your liquid makeup has spilled inside? A definite advantage of using pressed powder makeup is that it is safe to throw the compact into your purse, knowing that it won't explode! The convenience of having a tidy touch-up at your fingertips for your makeup, leaving you to get on with your busy life, can not be underestimated. Add a hairbrush and lipstick, and your purse is a portable quick-fix makeup friend.

Pressed powder makeup often works better than liquid makeup for women with oily skin because it effectively absorbs any oily sheen, leaving a matte face. Women allergic to talcum should check the ingredients of pressed powder makeup because the presed powder versions of many high-end makeup brands include talc and may cause irritations in those who have allergies.

For the past couple of years, a new type of makeup has emerged and embraced in the makeup world. This type of makeup is marketed as bare cosmetics and it's usually comprised of minerals and other natural ingredients that do just as well in offering coverage, but all without the skin irritation that comes with most synthetic makeups. Bare cosmetics are a great alternative for those with sensitive skin that are prone to breaking out and suffering from skin problems such as rosacea.
