Pro-Tip: All these features should be considered based on your skin type! Check out our use cases for finding out what is best for your skin.

1.1 Types

Compact powders are generally okay for any use; which means you can apply them either as a foundation or just as a finishing powder. Wet compact works when you apply it as a foundation, simply damp cloth or sponge and wipe it over your compact cake and start the application. It will give a foundation like base look to your skin upon which you can apply your make-up as needed.

A dry compact acts as your finishing powder; something that you apply after you are done with your make-up. It can also be used the entire day to give those much needed and quick retouches to your look. However, nowadays the compacts have evolved giving you the option of applying it either in the dry form or wet.

Our recommendation: Go for a hybrid one!

1.2 Longevity

A long-lasting compact is going to make your life easy! Many compacts have a long-term duration of 8 to 10 hours post-application. However, you should also keep in mind that this lasting effect depends on the type of climate around you. If you are living in a surrounding which is humid, this longevity is going to reduce; thanks to sweat! But choosing a powder that has the longest-lasting effect is going to be your best pick here!

1.3 Coverage and Blend

Choosing a compact that gives you high coverage and a natural feeling blend is essential. What does this mean? Coverage of powder is said to be more when it covers a larger surface of your face with less amount of product. The higher the coverage, the more use you can derive from your compact.

By blend, we mean that it should merge well with your skin upon application. When compact blends well, it leaves your skin feeling soft, bright, and glowing without the feeling that you have applied something extra! It goes “au natural”! But when it doesn’t blend in, you can see unevenness and left-out patches or even a whitish look all over the skin!

Pro-Tip: Check if the compact feels smooth and in-tone with your skin tone, if yes, then its a perfect fit!

1.4 Finish

Many compacts have either of the two finishes; matt or shinny! Now the preference of choosing a finish depends entirely on you. Matt finish is more of daily use, while shiny finishes are used for special occasions! If your compact looks plain and of a single shade, it’s matte. If it looks all sparkly with those sparkle grains, then it is going to give you a shiny touch.

1.5 SPF Contain

Having SPF contain in your compact is the best way you can wear sunblock the entire day and look good while doing it! SPF is Sun Protection Factor that helps to save your skin from darkening out under the sun! It is made of active ingredients like titanium dioxide and zinc oxide that scatter sun-rays away from your skin and absorb the harmful UV rays too!

A good SPF contains in a compact would be somewhere above 15 and would do a decent job of powder + sunblock!

1.6 Feel

It is an ideal concept that a face powder should not feel like you are carrying a layer of make-up on your skin. The lighter it feels, the better! After applying, if your face feels restricted or the skin feels heavy, then you should look for a compact that feels very light on the skin and lets you be you!

1.7 Shades

Compacts nowadays come in various shades; choosing the perfect one is a herculean task! The tone that you choose is typically the one that is closest to your natural skin colour, however, if you want a brighter look, you can go for a shade that is one notch lighter than your skin tone.

Pro Tip: Medium beige shade works for almost every skin tone except very fair!

2. Uses Cases: The best compact-powder for you

2.1 Which compact powder is best for oily skin?

If you have a skin that secretes oil very often, then you should opt for a matte finish powder. Compacts with shiny texture can leave your skin looking more oily as they have more glossy content in them.

2.2 Which compact powder is best for dry skin?

Your skin is more prone to flaking; hence matte finish won’t work for you. You need to choose a compact that has a more luscious feel to keep your skin looking hydrated. The glossy content in these compacts also helps in adding water and moisture to your skin.

4. How-To: Usage hints and care instructions for compact powders

4.1 How to apply a compact powder?

Here is a guide of how to give your skin a finished look.

  • For the application of wet compact:

  1. Give your face a wash with a mild face cleaner or soap. Focus on the areas where there is an excess oil built up. Wash your face with cold water and pat it dry with a soft towel.

  2. Take a little bit of your regular moisture and apply it gently to the face [no need to do this if your skin is oily].

  3. Squeeze out a small amount of primer and smooth it out on your face with your fingertips.

  4. Take a rounded foundation brush, or even a blusher would do well. Press it down on the dry powder lightly. Now roll the brush gently over your face covering the entire area. Apply an extra coat where you need additional coverage to hide any spots or blemishes.

  5. Wet a sponge with lukewarm water, make sure you squeeze it well before use. Now put this on the dry powder and brush it lightly to collect the product. Start applying the product with light pressure on your face.

  6. Start the application from the centre portion of your face and then move outwards. You can also apply it in the regular circular motion.

  7. Look in the mirror and cover up any more areas that you feel need an extra coating.

  • For the application of dry compact:

  1. Repeat steps 1 and 2 mentioned above.

  2. Take the powder with the applicator [usually all compacts come with a beauty-sponge] and start rubbing it on your face in circles.

  3. You can use your regular foundation before this if you want a higher coverage and heavier make-up. However, if you’re going to do it for daily use, just a coat of dry compact over a moisturized skin would do just fine.

  4. You can apply a second coat according to your look.

Pro Tip: A quick dap with a small ice-cube over your face will help keep the pores tight and give you a flawless look for a more extended period.

6. Our Picks: How we picked the best compact powders

Selecting a perfect compact is a tricky decision. Many times it is possible that you are unable to find an ideal match. The product guide has been developed, keeping this in mind and hence, detailed descriptions of compacts have been included. Our well researched and expert testified products will make it easier for you to find the one that meets your requirements! This is what we have paid our exceptional attention to:

  1. Coverage: The higher the coverage of the compact, the longer it lasts. If the compact gives an even-tone in a single layer, it is going to be the easiest to use as well as longest to last.

All our selections have varied types of coverages that you can choose according to your needs.

  2. Longevity: It is better to have a compact that lasts throughout the day so that you don’t have to redo the touch-ups! All our compacts have a minimum of 3 hours of longevity and ensure that you are ready to go whenever you want.

  3. Feel: Lightweight make-up has always been the most preferred, and hence we choose products that are feather-light on your skin! This not only keeps your skin cosy but also lets you, be you! Moreover, it doesn't make you feel restricted or conscious of your make-up!
