I was shocked when I recently realized that we haven’t talked about one of my all-time favorite beauty products – HD Setting Powder. Before I tried using one, I wasn’t sure what all the hype was about, and the name just seemed like it was all hype. But I can assure you it is anything but! I would even say it is one of the biggest game-changers in my make-up bag.

HD Powder will hide all of your little lines, pores, discolorations, etc. in one little tap. I made the comment to my dear husband one time that it made my face look like a porcelain doll, which he took to be a bad thing haha.

Not only does it instantly hide any imperfections but it has incredible lasting power which is something that has been hard for me to find with my combination skin. I wear mine over my liquid foundation and it’s the only finishing powder I need.

These two photos were taken with the same camera, at the same distance, in the same lighting, and neither were touched up at all (despite the stray brow hairs I’m now obsessing over, yikes). Top photo without the powder, bottom photo with.



The longer I look at these photos the more I’m thinking I need to invest in a good anti-wrinkle cream. But I digress.

Now here’s the really exciting part – like most cosmetics, you can spend a small fortune if you choose to do so. IT Cosmetics has an amazing HD Powder – brush some on the back of your hand the next time you’re at Ulta and I can promise you’ll be amazed! However – you will need to look no further than e.l.f’s High Definition Powder. I use this powder every single day and I can’t imagine that I could be any happier with it. The price tag on this darling? $6. And even with everyday use one of these will last me over 6 months.

You can purchase it directly from e.l.f or you can pick one up at your local Target! How easy is that?
