Too Face Light Filtering Photo-Enhancing Powders* (£32) | available from Debenhams
With a social media world absolutely saturated with selfie photos left, right and centre, it was only a matter of time before a beauty brand jumped on this camera craze and created your very own selfie compact complete with their very own hashtag – #TFNoFilter. The perfect powder trio for those filter fanatics, Too Faced have launched the Selfie Powders – light filtering photo-enhancing powders which mimics the effects of your favourite photo filters!
Everyone loves the sympathetic touch of an Instagram filters, whether it is to brighten, smooth, diffuse or blur out those imperfections, add warmth or an inner glow to any complexion. This portable palette promises to instantly give you that flawlessly filtered look in real life with a collection of three velvety, weightless powder-cream options to soften, cut shine and brighten the skin.
Sunrise – instantly brightens with diffused warmth, great to highlight with a warm tone along the cheekbones. Totally Toasted – bronzes with a smoothing glow and is sheer enough to buff over the face to add an overall sun kissed look or great to use as a contour. Moon River – adds a cool ethereal light to the skin. This purple powder is probably the most feared and confusing from the palette but actually the lavender tones help brighten sallow skin that needs neutralising and is probably the most useful out of the three. It adds radiance without shimmer or sparkle. Each powder can be used individually or swirled together to customise your photo-ready finish.
Obviously these powders are not miracle-workers and I wouldn’t get rid of your instagram app just yet but they do all have a purpose and work well together to cut shine, add radiance and warmth to the complexion without feeling powdery or flat on the skin – plus it is great to have all you need in one palette, great for travelling and being ready for that selfie in a flash!
