So having been a One Step Face Base girl for years, I have decided that it is time for a change and am going to buy Double Wear (I only wear make up for going out, dont wear it every day as I am lazy!)
I have a sample in Shell (am pasty!), and today I tried it mixed with a little bit of Mac strobe cream and it looked lovely and glowy - if I was wearing this for every day it would look really nice! However, I feel that without a bit of powder it looks and feels a little bit unfinished for evening wear. I dont know if putting powder on though will ruin the glowy look created by the strobe cream. Unfortunately, having always used osfb I dont have any powder to test out this theory! I know that loose powder looks a bit less cakey, but if I was to get a powder I would prefer pressed as I would want to take it out with me and blot any shiny nose throughout the evening.
Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Do you need powder with DW? Can anyone recommend any powders that are a bit lighter and dont look quite so cakey, but do give a 'finished' look.
I use DW and would never powder it as it does the job anyway (I used to have to powder after EVERY other foundation I've used by the way). Could you not just use DW without strobe cream on your nose and then put the DW with strobe cream everywhere else? I like a dewy look but I use DW all over and then just put some liquid highlighter where I need it (top of cheeks etc)
Thanks everyone, so it seems that people dont tend to wear powder then. Good tip scripsi about just using the strobe cream in certain areas.
I did have a look on the MAC website at the blotting powder which looks like it could be good, and there is also a colourless 'prep and prime' finishing powder which looks quite good as well, so I might take a trip to the MAC shop next week!
