Vibe Vixen Translucent Powders On CelebritiesDon’t set your makeup with a translucent powder.

To ensure a flawless finish, a setting powder is mandatory, but not all setting powders are created equal. To avoid distorting the color of your foundation, a translucent powder is the perfect choice, it brightens and locks the makeup in place. But be careful! In person, they are undetectable but in flash photography, they show up in the worst way.

Do set your makeup with a powder that matches your foundation.

If you’re looking for a brightening effect, swipe on a yellow based powder like Kim Kardashian does for a radiant glow.
