I know a lot of people really like the ELF translucent powder, but I'm not super familiar with how powders work and I know it is white. Is it for all skin complexions or just best on very fair skin?? Thanks!

It’s for all skin shades! It goes on clear unless you apply too much then it will leave a slight white cast. You just want to apply a thin layer all over or even just the areas you get oily.

Another big complaint is that it leaves a white cast in flash photography which it does if you apply too much. But I LOVE using translucent powder because it blurs imperfections, helps control oils, makes my makeup look better and last longer so I use it every day but not for nights out or days I know I’ll be photographed :)

I want to start wearing make up. Can you tell me everything I need and the best brands? I use primer and BB cream already so if you can just recommend what else I need to make it look more natural including powder, foundation, mascara, eyeliner, etc

Do you know of any good dupes for the flat top kabuki brush from sigma? (:

Asked by

Real Techniques Expert Face Brush $9 at Ulta, Walgreens and Walmart. Pretty much identical to the Sigma one just round. Real Techniques makes a flat top brush but its a little less dense & tightly packed than the Sigma one & the Expert face brush but still great! :)

Expert Face brush on top, Buffing Flat Top brush on the bottom.

ELF Flat Top Kabuki $3 sold at Target) not exactly like the Sigma one because it’s less dense (less brush hairs tightly packed together) and not as soft but still pretty soft & it does the job! A great deal for the price.

Coastal Scents Bionic Flat Top Buffer $7. One of my favs! You can buy from coastalscents here.

Sona Kashuk Multi Purpose Flat Top Brush $16 at Target
