Happy New Week!!!
Is it just me or this year is really going by fast? Can you believe it’s already almost the end of the first quarter of the year? I’m in total awe to be honest and on this note I’d advice that we all start to cease every moment and opportunity because this year isn’t waiting for no one.
Lately almost every girl has been baking and no I don’t mean cakes or bread. As a result of highlighting our faces to get a glowy look the use of setting powders to set your highlight aka baking is almost inevitable.
I checked out the cost of the popular Ben Nye powder which is mostly use for this purpose in one makeup studio, you needed to see the way I moonwalked away from the shelf as it costs a couple of thousand naira. That didn’t discourage me tho, I kept hunting for an affordable setting powder till I say a makeup artist use a Black Opal Compact powder to set her highlight on ‘Makeupformelaningirls’ on IG (this account is the bomb seriously) then I decided to get one for myself.
Instead of the compact powder, I got the Black Opal Deluxe Finishing Powder and I’m totally digging it. It sets my highlight well, leaving my face beat looking really good for a long while thanks to its oil control formula. I’m not perfect at this yet, I’m not even anywhere close to perfect but in this learning stage I’m in I can tell you that this powder sets just fine.
I would definitely keeping buying this product as it’s very affordable (within the range of N2,000 – N3,00o depending on where you are buying yours), available in most of the makeup stores in Lagos and it also does a good job as a setting powder. Do have a great week ahead.
What setting powders do you use? Any other affordable recommendations you would like to share with me? Please do so by leaving a comment below thanks.
