                      Hi There! You can increase the coverage of your Halo perfecting powder by using a blush/powder brush to apply it. If you already do this and are willing to try a new formula we suggest our CC cream in Light. It's a gorgeous formulation that will leave your skin looking flawless.

                      Hi There! The Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder works well as a foundation. We suggest applying it with a medium size brush to buff away imperfections and even out skin tone. Apply this over a Smashbox Foundation Primer for a finish that will last and last.
