You know what's the best way to rid of the Monday blues glamour babes?! Makeup! And, I think ELF's Beautifully Bare Finishing Powder maybe the cure to turn that frown upside down!

This is another newbie that has been added to ELF's Beautifully Bare line, and it's described to do the following via their website:

*Creates a flawless natural look

*Provides light coverage and sets makeup

*Helps mattify skin and minimize the appearance of fine lines.

Is this $6 finishing powder worth buying and trying???

Yes! I can confidently say that this face powder makes a world of difference on ones complexion especially those with combination/oily skin, like me!
FYI: To really blur and soften skins texture, use ELF's 3 in 1 makeup base underneath their finishing powder. Skin that looked flawless, looks even more flawless!

I hope that make sense, lol. If not think Photoshop and filters, get the picture? Awesome!

ELF's Beautifully Bare Finishing Powder is housed in a sturdy plastic reflective silver compact that has a secret compartment inside stashing away a powder puff for when you need to powder your nose, and it has a full size mirror.


There are four shades to choose from that should work for everyone's skin tone, fair/light, light/medium, medium/dark, and dark/deep.

I usually favor the shade light-medium when it comes to ELF Cosmetics, but the powder looked a bit yellow when testing it out, so I opted for fair/light instead, and it surprisingly matched up perfectly against my complexion. I love powders that don't produce a chalky, ghoulish, Casperish appearance after application, and this one doesn't!

ELF's Finishing Powder has a silky formula with lightweight coverage providing a subtle tint of color without an SPF, making it very comfortable to wear and easy to use. Use the makeup sponge that comes equipped in the compact or a blending brush, and apply the powder all over the face in circular motions, it's as simple as that! I used ELF's Blending Brush, which created flawless, even coverage, along with long lasting wear, zero clogged pores, and no breakouts. I didn't have to powder my nose or nothing all day when wearing this, my skin stayed beautifully matte for 8 hours strong. 

Did those frowns get turned upside down?! I sure hope so, ELF's Beautifully Bare Finishing Powder is totally worth smiling over.

Stay beautiful! Xo.
