Do you prime your skin before applying makeup? Do you set the makeup afterward with a powder or spray? We’re told how important these steps are, and yet many of us still choose to skip them. Why? Because we’re not totally convinced they’re worth the extra money and effort.
It’s true that some primers and setting powders aren’t worth it. Some of them simply don’t work, some don’t have the right kind of ingredients we’re looking for and others are so overpriced that we’d rather just have our makeup look a little worse. But what if using them could actually make a major difference? And what if you could get both in one product, for under $12, with vegan ingredients?
This Over / Under powder is out to prove its worth in your makeup routine, and it really doesn’t have to try that hard. The moment you try it will be the moment you realize just how valuable it is. It’s a lightweight two-in-one pressed powder that primes and sets, claiming to not only absorb oil and minimize pores but to “lock down” makeup for some seriously long-lasting glam!
This powder is key for a smooth, shine-free finish that looks like naked skin. It feels like it too. Reviewers say it has a “light and airy” finish that feels like it’s “barely there.” They say it “goes on seamlessly” and are so happy to have experienced “no caking” the way they do with other powders. They “love how natural” this powder looks, and say their skin looks so good with it on that they “don’t even need a layer of foundation.” It “keeps [their] oily T-zone shine-free for many hours,” so they can simply set it and forget it!
We’re not even done listing the reasons we love this powder. How about the fact that it contains jojoba extract to balance skin and keep it happy? Or how about the fact that it’s totally cruelty-free, paraben-free and gluten-free — along with being vegan? And have you thought about how it can help clear up an overcrowded vanity? When you only need one product for priming and setting, that means more clear space!
This powder comes in three translucent shades. Light is for fair to medium skin, Medium is for medium to deep skin and Banana Bare is for medium skin with yellow undertones. To use any of the above, simply dab a makeup brush into the compact and lightly sweep the powder all over your face, evenly distributing and blending. Do this either just before putting on makeup or right after — or both! Check yourself out in the mirror afterward and you’ll see why reviewers are saying they “won’t ever go without” this product again!
