Translucent Powders are designed to set makeup applications and to enhance the longevity of the makeup application throughout the day. It locks in foundation and concealer so the make up does not move throughout the day. Make up slipping into fine lines and nooks and crannies on the face can be ageing and irritating at the very least!

Translucent Powders are setting powders that are also available in tinted options as well. Translucent Powders are not designed to provide any further coverage or change the colour of your foundation. A coloured Setting Powder can minimize facial redness, even out skin tone and brighten the skin.  

Don’t get confused between mineral setting powders and mineral powders. Mineral powders are designed to add coverage just like a liquid foundation. Use both Mineral Powder and Foundation for a medium to heavy makeup coverage. Otherwise apply a setting powder on top of your BB Cream or Liquid Foundation for all day staying power.  

Youngblood Make Up is a premier Mineral Makeup brand that offer one of the best setting powder options.   

Offered in both translucent and coloured, Youngblood Mineral Rice Setting powder in both Loose and Pressed will help to control oil shine and provide a matte finish. Not to mention it will smooth out pores as well as any fine lines. Free of nasties and talc free.



Youngblood's unique formulation uses rice starch, corn starch and minerals, and is 100% talc-free. Apply after your foundation, or if using a Mineral Powder you can mix 1 part rice powder with 2 parts mineral powder. Apply with a brush or makeup sponge.  

Your setting powder success is all in the foundation application. Blend, blend blend is the kay! If you find your liquid is not blending properly into the skin, try using a foundation brush and work into the skin so that the foundation blends in perfectly with your skin. Once your foundation shows no streaks and sits beautifully on your skin you are ready for the final touch of setting powder.  

Apply your setting powder with a flat ended brush or makeup sponge.
