No makeup collection is complete without pressed powder. This versatile cosmetic comes in a solid cake-like form and is applied using a puff, brush, or sponge. Pressed powder can be used to set liquid foundation and concealer, blot oil, and touch up your makeup throughout the day. It can also be applied all by itself to reduce shine and provide light coverage. Pressed powder comes in many shades, so you'll need to choose one to match your skin tone. The right shade can help conceal blemishes and give your face a smooth, flawless finish.
