How to Use Powder on Asian Skin

Learn how to use powder on Asian skin from celebrity makeup artist Raychel Wade in this Howcast makeup tutorial.


After you've applied your foundation and concealer, you might want to apply some powder. This is really important to set the make up and also get rid of any shine that the foundation and concealer might have created.

I like to use a loose powder. You can use a translucent powder or, if you want to match your skin tone, you can use something that matches your skin tone. But I like something that's loose. I think it works better.

The other thing is I like to use a puff, like this. Again it helps put the powder in the skin better. When you use a big, fluffy brush it tends to kind of poof around your whole face, and it doesn't really sit on the skin.

So here's what I do. I take a little loose powder, I dip the puff into the powder, and I actually roll it on the skin. So I'm just pushing the powder into the skin. Now you can see the powder, it's not going to stay like that. We're going to fix that. You're just keep pushing away until you get rid of the shine that you need. And because I'm using this puff I'm really working it into the skin.

And it creates a really flawless finish. You can roll it like this, you can pat it, whatever you do you just want to be nice and thorough with it.

Again, just pushing it into the skin, especially where you might be shiny. And it's going to set the make up and it's going to allow it to last all day long.

And there you go. Now her skin looks flawless.
