Well, today we will tell you about one such item – the one that has it all! This item is so awesome, it is a surprise we all do not own it yet. It is banana powder! But, what is banana powder?
What is Banana Powder?
Banana powder is a yellow toned multitasking product which doesn’t only set your makeup and concealer expertly, but it also adds very natural looking highlights to the skin. Banana Powder got its name because of its yellow tone which matches almost every skin tone perfectly and looks translucent. Because of its yellow color it hides blemishes and redness on the skin, conceals dark circles, and gives you that perfect cover. It can be used as a highlighter as well as a regular setting powder. either way, it will do the job right.
Banana powder has been on the market for some time now, but it only got widespread popularity after Kim Kardashian’s makeup artist gave shout out to it (revealing the secret to Kim’s perfect contouring and highlighting that she prides herself on).
How to apply banana powder?
Makeup artists suggest using banana powder after your foundation and concealer has been applied. Put a small amount of loose banana powder on the back of your hand and with the help of a brush or a sponge apply it to the zones where you apply your concealer, which usually include under the eyes, on the T-zone, bridge of the nose, and your chin. To get the best highlighting effect, don’t brush the excess powder away at once; let it set for some time. The banana powder will give you a very natural glow. It does not look synthetic and will be indistinguishable on the skin.
If you plan on using it as a regular setting powder and not as a highlighter, put a small amount of banana powder on your hand and apply it with a big puff. A little of this powder goes a long way.
