10 best compact face powders in india for oily dry skin

Top 10 Compact Powders in India

By Contributor: Moupee

To give your make up a finishing touch compact powders do play a major role. The tradition of using face powders for adding a brightness and glow to the face is quite an old makeup tradition. With the passage of time face powders have improved in texture, in consistency coming in a variety of shades to suit your skin tone and type. Its a myth that dry skin doesn’t need compact powders, it needs it as much as oily or combination skin does.

Brief History of Face Powders

If you retrace your steps to make a journey back in time you would learn that in the ancient eras when there were no compacts, no face powders too, women in Greece, combined lead and chalk dust to make their own powders, for flaunting a bright white skin tone. Though crude in form that was the first powder to be used on skin and that was how the novel idea of using it for brightening complexion came into be ing. After series of evolutionary processes, the talcum powder emerged into the market which too was used on face during the makeup for many years by the crazy ladies who loved to look beautiful until when the market was seized almost by the pressed powders that created a revolution in the makeup industry by doing away with all the shortcomings that a face powder had.

 The main advantages that you can get from compact powders are:

  • Gives your face a uniform and even look by blending perfectly with your skin tone
  • Have a shine-proof smooth finish
  • Good branded ones have guaranteed skin compatibility
  • Offer great coverage by concealing your skin flaws excellently
  • Another major advantage is its portability. Just slip it into your clutch and carry it around wherever you go
