    I use a skin toned pressed powder and a translucent powder everyday and it keeps my skin looking matte and almost flawless. It really helps with hiding my large pores and it doesn't wear off unless i rub it a lot.

                              Banana, for sure, is ideal to set under eye concealer! Its soft yellow tint will help to brighten the under eye area and minimize the appearance of dark circles. Enjoy!

                              Setting powder is optional and based on your preference! Ulta's Pressed Setting Powder is a wonderful option for those with oily skin or skin that is prone to shine, since it helps to reduce oil as well as to set makeup for lasting wear.

                              If you prefer a completely invisible option, we recommend choosing the Pressed Setting Powder in Translucent! You might want to test them both at your nearest Ulta Beauty store to see which shade option you prefer. :-)
