My makeup looks fine until I use a powder to set my foundation. Then, I started noticing tiny lines under my eyes, on my cheeks and near my mouth. I think the powder accentuates my wrinkles and I am only 33 years old. I use an anti-wrinkle lotion and foundation. I need powder to have a matte and less shiny look.
Particular about powder
Dear Particular about powder,
Finishing powder does not need to be applied all over the face. Use just a little powder to touch up the shiny t-zone areas such as the forehead, nose, and chin. Do not use finishing powder on your cheeks, near your eyes or the sides of your mouth.
Anti-aging finishing powder will not eliminate wrinkles, but can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Look for products with anti-aging ingredients such as vitamins A (retinol), C (ascorbyl palmitate or tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate), E (tocopheryl acetate), and other antioxidants.
Generally overall positive reviews were given to some anti-aging finishing powders from consumers at Avon.com, HSN.com, Makeupalley.com, or Sephora.com.
