We have been in a major heatwave for the last few days and it means that I am pulling out all of my little tricks to lock my makeup in place no matter how hot it gets. Last week I told you guys all about my favourite priming and prep products from Urban Decay and this week I am sharing the Top 10 Must Have Setting Powders That You NEED Right Now!
When it comes to makeup, a good setting powder is something that I absolutely cannot live without. From an all-over dusting to full on baking, I use powder in many ways and at many times during my routine. There are so many fantastic powders out right now that completely knock the powders of years past out of the water, so check out my favourites!
