Not Your Everyday Powder: 7 Powders Worth the Splurge

Powders have come a long way over the years, from light-diffusing and brightening to mattifying and skin tone-adjusting. There are so many amazing options out there, but it’s hard to stay on top of the latest and greatest. I have compiled seven of my favorite powders that will make your everyday powder look a little dull.

Click through my slideshow for the latest and greatest in powders:

  • Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder 1 of 7

    A powder that diffuses, softens, and illuminates the skin. The finishing powders enhance skin in any type of light, including flash photography (great for brides). With six universal shades available, you can create your desired effect. 

    Get it at Sephora, $45

  • Urban Decay Naked Skin Ultra Definition 2 of 7
    Urban Decay

    A powder that de-mattes the skin and cuts shine. This oil free powder feels like silk on the skin. It's the perfect powder for natural looking skin. 

    Get it at Sephora, $34

  • Guerlain Meteorites Powder For The Face 3 of 7
    Guerlain

    Six multi-colored pearls create a dreamy, radiant finish. Available in three different color combinations for each skin tone.

  • Josie Maran Argan Matchmaker Powder Foundation SPF 20 4 of 7

    This is my go-to powder for everyday light coverage. The powder adjusts to your skin tone while hydrating and nourishing the skin with pure argan oil. Available in three color combinations.

  • Marc Jacobs Beauty Perfection Powder 5 of 7

    This powder foundation has a silky finish that gives buildable coverage, hydrates, and hides imperfections. The lightweight texture gives a flawless no-makeup kind of look. Love it. 

    Get it at Sephora, $46

  • Too Faced Primed & Poreless Pressed Powder 6 of 7
    too faced

    A pressed powder that adjusts to any skin tone while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and pores. My favorite part about this powder is that you can wear it under makeup to prep the skin, or over makeup to set your makeup and control shine.  

    Get it at Sephora, $30

  • Bare Minerals SPF 30 Natural Sunscreen 7 of 7
    bare minerals

    I keep one of these in my car for SPF touch-ups when I am on the go. Protect your skin from the sun and reduce shine in one easy step. I love the spill-proof bottle!

    Get it at Sephora, $28
