The Tip: Yellow Powders


Ah… Kim K the person who made yellow powders popular via the extreme Kontour routine. On individuals with tan – olive skin like Mrs.West this can highlight, on fair skinned individuals like me it can be a real saviour when it comes to the wintertime redness.  

Got a reddness prone skin? Swipe on some yellow powder to set everything – or do the Wayne Goss trick and go for some loose powder before you apply foundation. Overall yellow powder can lighten the complexion and reduce the redness, it’s a nice little thing to have in your make up collection. There are different powders, some are more highly pigmented than others – the most yellow one I’ve come across is the famous Ben Nye Banana Powder which I don’t own, I much prefer the Smashbox Yellow Halo Powder since it’s freshly loose and really fine with a little kick of moisture. For pressed powders the light reflecting and diffusing Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in “Diffused Light” is amazing, and for a more pigmented yellow try the Anastasia Beverly Hills Pro Powder in Banana.

Do you have a redness busting tip?
