When glow becomes shine here’s how to kiss it goodbye… We're chatting with Vapour National Makeup Artist, Nicole Cudzilo, about achieving the perfect finish:
The best way to get a flawless finish is the Press and Roll technique where powder is applied with intent, instead of randomly dusting it on.
Pick up a small amount of Pressed or Loose Perfecting Powder and lightly tap off excess. For the ultimate control (who doesn’t want that) hold the brush close to the ferrule and deliberately press the fibers onto the skin. Then roll the brush as you lift it off. Start setting the center of your face and work your way out. Repeat these steps across your skin.
Loose or Pressed... it’s just personal preference.
Pressed Perfecting Powder comes in a cute mirrored compact. It’s a silky tapioca based formula that cuts shine without dulling the skin. Perfect for quick touch ups throughout the day.
Loose Perfecting Powder contains the same silky goodness as her pressed sister. Choose Loose if you use just a want a bit of powder on targeted areas. The flexible trampoline sifter makes it easy to control how much product is picked up.
Mini Loose Perfecting Powder is the same great formula packaged for a quick get away. Slip it into your purse, gym bag or carry on. Bonus: it’s TSA friendly.
The Vapour Powder Brush is domed and tapered for perfect powder pick up and blending. It’s cruelty free synthetic fibers are non-porous (which prevents them from lifting too much product). Brush handles are made from FSC-certified sustainably sourced Birch. Need we say more?
For a natural look less is always more.
If you are looking for dewy skin precision powdering specific areas with a smaller brush, like our Blush Brush, is key. Make sure to set places you would like to use powder color products, such as the sides of the cheeks or top of the forehead.
Set lids with powder to make eyeshadow or eyeliner last longer. This will combat creasing and help products blend seamlessly.
To matteify your favorite satin shade of High Voltage Lipstick, take a tissue and separate it from two ply into one. Place the tissue on lips and lightly tap powder through the tissue. There now you have it– an ultra matte lip.
