Student-Friendly Beauty – Powders


Kirsty Fardell talks us through the best powders on the market for a student budget. 

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder – £3.99 at Boots

rimmel powder

This is a great product to keep a shiny face at bay. There is little worse than seeing club photos with a bright flash highlighting your oily face from the night before, so this saviour is a must-carry product. It doesn’t add much colour; it just creates a more matte finish to any foundation and helps to stop that dreaded shiny complexion! You don’t need much either, so it lasts ages.

Max Factor Creme Puff – £5.99 at Boots

The classic. It has been around since 1953 for a very good reason, it works super well. With slightly more coverage than the Rimmel alternative, so can be worn on its own to add colour and reduce oily looking skin. It keeps oil at bay perfectly giving a smooth matte finish and even comes with a sponge for easy application.

e.l.f. Mineral Booster – £5 at e.l.f.

e.l.f powder

This powder comes in sheer, shimmer, tinted or yellow so there is something for every skin tone and need. The yellow helps to correct the appearance of a red tint on the skin to give a flawless finish. It’s infused with minerals to promote healthy skin and doesn’t clog up pores too. Great for stopping skin looking shiny and lasts all day.
