THE £3.49 POWDER

Whatever skin tone you've been blessed with, it's always best to set your base with a sheer powder. We recommend NYC Smooth Skin Loose Face Powder in Translucent, £3.49. It contains rice starch, which absorbs oil without clogging your pores, so your shine is controlled minus the cakey finish.
