Do you know how to apply banana powder? Many makeup lovers are very curious about banana powder, and this new beauty product brings us a lot of surprises and expectations. Many people can’t wait to know the steps to use the banana powder. Do you use it like a setting powder or loose powder? Or is there another way to use it? Next, we will introduce it.

After doing the eye concealer, wet the beauty sponge, wring out the water and dip it generously into the banana powder and gently spread it over the area where you have applied the eye concealer. If your skin is very oily, you can also press lightly on the areas that tend to get oily.

Steps of how to apply banana powder

After waiting patiently for 5 minutes, sweep off the banana powder with a loose powder brush, bringing it across the entire face by the way and setting it on other less oily areas.

Finally, spray on a setting spray to double set the makeup. This method is oil-controlling and refreshing, but also makes the areas that were just concealed and dusted with loose powder feel less heavy.

If you want to use it all over your face you can take a cue from the sandwich method.

After applying the pre-makeup lotion and before applying foundation, sweep a small amount of banana powder. A small amount of pre-makeup banana powder not only does not make the makeup float, but also makes the subsequent makeup fit better. The yellow powder of the banana powder also helps to brighten your facial skin tone evenly and for people with large pores this practice can also cover up the pores.

Finally, apply foundation. If you have oily skin, use a matte foundation that controls oil, and if you have dry skin, use a light and moisturizing foundation. The last thing you need to do is to set your skin with loose powder for the second time after applying the foundation.
