Powder foundation sounds crazy to me. With hot and humid weather throughout the year, it’s difficult to just wear powder foundation and expect it to work. However, they are best put to use when you want to top it over a light or medium coverage foundation. Yes, they don’t just keep your face matte, but also add coverage. There are is a lot of powder foundations out there, but….. I must say that M.A.C Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation is the best I have ever used.
