Powder your way to skin perfection with Kat Von D, Buff'd, GOSH, mark. and Maybelline!

Kat Von D Lock-It Powder Foundation - $41 - with a budge-proof, 24-hour formula and 17 shades including 5 shades of Light, 8 shades of Medium and 4 shades of Deep - that is buildable and evens out the complexion while hiding imperfections - all without the need for touch-ups. As well, it's smudge and sweat-proof and won’t cake or crease and the velvety texture wears with a breathable, light touch with a flawless, matte finish.

Available at Sephora and
Buff'd Mineral Makeup - $20 -  available in a mind-blowing 68 shades of cools, neutrals, beiges, warms, goldens and olives and if you still can't find one to suit in all of those, they will even custom blend one for you.
Not only is there a choice of colour, you also choose the formula to suit you best: 

Original: a great full-coverage foundation with fantastic oil absorption and natural UV protection. ingredients: titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, mica, iron oxides, ultramarines.

Light: specifically for those who prefer a lightweight foundation that still offers buildable coverage and great oil absorption. ingredients: mica, titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, iron oxides, ultramarines.

Concealing: made with a touch of kaolin clay offering even better coverage with greater oil absorption. Ideal for those with combination to oily skin and a great spot concealer. ingredients: titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, iron oxides, kaolin clay, mica, ultramarines

And while I like a powder foundation a lot, I find this loose type very messy - I'm well aware that I'm a slob! So if you are likewise gifted, do yourself (and your bathroom counter) a favour and pick up a sifter jar at the beauty supply store - the mesh top keeps your brush from picking up too much powder and making a mess!

Can't decide on the best shade? Order a sample or two for $1.75 - or just need to refill your pot or have one of your own? A refill is only $12.80!

Available online at
GOSH BB Powder - $20 - available in 3 shades, it offers a flawlessly matte finish with a light moisturizing coverage and blends flawlessly with the original GOSH BB Cream or can be worn on its own for a more natural look.

mark. Great Finish Pressed Perfecting Powder - $14 - in 7 shades: Very Light, Light, Light Medium, Medium, Medium Dark, Dark and Deep - keeps shine under control with a lightweight formula that provides an instant, natural-looking finish that can be used over foundation or on its own.
