High Street HD Banana Powder

WHAT IS BANANA POWDER?

Those of you who are avid make up fans will have probably heard of it or used it before. To explain, banana powder is a setting powder usually used to set concealer under the eyes and highlight the face. If you hadn’t guessed already, it has a yellow hue which is used to brighten, correct redness and give you a more illuminated look.

Since Kim Kardashian’s contour and highlight technique went viral a few years back, banana powder has become increasingly popular. It can be used on pretty much all skin tones and leaves a matte finish, so it’s perfect if, like me, you suffer from an oily t-zone!

One of the most popular banana powders used is by Ben Nye and comes in a loose powder form, which you can buy online ( when it is in stock that is!!). However, I’ve found a dupe from NYX that will do a similar job, at a fraction of the price and can also be found on the high street.

NYX HD Finishing powder comes in a compact and  so saves you from the disastrous effects of loose powder finding their way onto everything ( especially if you’re an all black outfit kinda girl!).

It’s silky in texture, leaving skin looking smooth and brightened with a veluntitled-designvet like finish. Apply with a small fluffy brush or beauty blender to set under eye concealer and also highlight down the bridge of the nose, middle of the forehead and chin.

A little tip from me, when applying  concealer and setting powder apply in a triangular shape, as shown to the right, as this helps to brighten and lift the entire eye area!

I’ve been using this powder for a few weeks now and I can definitely recommend it. It helps to increase longevity of my makeup throughout the day, brightens and leaves a HD like finish which makes skin look flawless! To be honest, for £5.50 you just can’t go wrong!
