The Best High Street Setting Powders!


For your full face of makeup to last all day it is important to set your makeup with the right setting powder. I have seen a lot of High End powders that are really good but I've always used High Street ones because of their much more affordable price tag! 


This is one of my only coloured setting powders that I use. It doesn't have too much pigmentation but it does leave the skin looking matte which I love. I like to also use this powder on days when I dont feel like wearing foundation. It gives nice coverage to the skin and this mattifying powder also gives the skin a natural glow without the skin looking too flat. 

I usually use this powder mainly for baking my under eye area after applying concealer. My under eye area always creases if I dont bake and I find this powder to be perfect for that. It makes my under eye area look and feel smooth and stay crease-less all day. I like to apply this powder with a dry beauty sponge and leave it on for a few minutes while I finish off my eye makeup. 

This powder is one of my favourites. It isn't for setting the whole face but for areas like under the eye area. I don't use this powder very often but if Im going on a night out and wear a lot of makeup i'll use this powder. You only need a very small amount because this powder is quite pigmented. If I dont bake my under eye I usually set it with a banana pressed powder and I have recently started using this loose powder and a small setting brush for better setting power. 


This powder used to be my absolute favourite, its probably re purchased it around 4 of 5 times. It has a very fine consistency and doesn't leave your face looking cakey! This powder looks best when it is lightly dusted all over the face. This leaves the skin matte, I like to use this powder when I have used a more dewy foundation and this powder helps me get the matte look I want. 

A few years ago everybody was talking about this powder and how good it was so I brought it straight away. I have been using it on and off for a few years now. This powder is also a but different than the others because it can also be used as a primer. I have used this powder a few times under my foundation and it has worked really well. It keeps the skin matte but doesn't make me look like I've got too much makeup.

  1. I've heard a lot of good things about the Match Perfection powder from Rimmel but haven't used it before! I love their Match Perfection foundation though!
    Maybe I will give it a go!

  3. Your photos are beautiful! I love the consistency of the Bourjois powder but the lightest shade shows up a little too orangey on me unfortunately. I've never tried it, but I love the sound of the Gosh powder x

    1. Thank you! The colours of the powder is slightly dark if your really light but if you mix with a translucent powder it can lighten the shade slightly! And the gosh powder is great x
