Think setting powder and blotting powder sound like one in the same? Nailing down the differences between these two makeup essentials can be confusing. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with everything you need to know about setting vs. blotting powders.
Let’s get into it!
What is a setting powder?
A setting powder does exactly what the name says it does – sets your makeup! Using setting powders ensures the longevity of your concealer, foundation, and all-over liquid/cream products. It can be a loose powder or a pressed powder – whatever the form, the purpose is all the same! A setting powder is an absolute must to make sure your makeup stays put all day and all night long, especially if you have oily skin. Setting powders not only keep your makeup in place but help to prevent oiliness throughout the day.
What is a blotting powder?
A blotting powder is more so used throughout the day for any touch-ups. Think of it as a finishing touch to provide the most flawless (hence the name of our viral powder 😉), filter-like finish. Blotting powders are often translucent and used to blur fine lines and pores, and also to soften skin texture, leaving you with gorgeous camera-ready skin. Blotting powder is great for when you’ll be in front of bright lights and cameras, so it’s another must-have for brides and bridal parties! Blotting powders usually come in pressed form, making it easy to carry on-the-go. If you tend to get oily in your T-zone as the day goes on, just grab and dab, gorgeous!
