​Cosmetic Powder Puffs: What You Need to Know

​Cosmetic Powder Puffs: What You Need to Know

If you’re an average, everyday user of makeup and powders, you may believe that the cosmetic powder puffs that come with your pressed or loose powders are sufficient for your needs. But if you’re a cosplayer, professional model, or makeup artist, you know that the puffs that come with your makeup are often of lower quality and need to be replaced regularly. Plus, you also know all of the other benefits of and ways to use cosmetic powder puffs. Here are just a few.

Use Large Cosmetic Powder Puffs to Set Body Makeup

Whether you’re a cosplayer, model, actor, or TV personality, you’ve used body makeup at least a few times in your life. And while the makeup itself usually gets applied via a cosmetic sponge, the application is not complete without a layer of setting powder. This task would take forever with a small puff, and a brush would make a huge mess. That’s why large cosmetic powder puffs are the perfect solution for patting setting powder on any exposed skin. With the right powder, your makeup will stay put for hours, no matter what activity you are doing.

Keep Extra Puffs in Your Purse

If you’re frequently on the go, it’s a smart idea to keep extra cosmetic powder puffs in your purse or bag. That way, you’ll never be at a loss for one. It seems to be some kind of Murphy’s Law that the one you have will fall in the sink or on the floor when you’re in a rush, so when you have a backup or two, you won’t have to worry. Also, in a pinch, you can tap your puff into cornstarch or baby powder for a quick touchup (go lightly or you’ll end up with a very white face!).

Large Puffs Are Great for Babies

Have you ever tried to powder a baby’s bum after a diaper change, only to have powder go everywhere? Instead of wrestling with the shakable kind of powder, put some quality talc-free powder or cornstarch in a small container and tap your large cosmetic powder puffs in there. You’ll be better able to direct the application on your little one, and you can even powder her tummy too with ease. Turn it into a game with your baby and diaper changes will go quicker and easier.

Apply Loose Powder Correctly

Did you know there’s a “right” way to apply loose powder? Instead of just putting the cosmetic powder puffs into the powder and tapping off the excess before applying to your face or body, try this: Put the puff in the powder and fold it in half, rubbing the sides together. This will get the powder deeper into puff while releasing the extra back into the powder container. Then press and roll the saturated puff across your face or body to set the makeup in place!

Replace Puffs Regularly

Depending on how often you’re using your cosmetic powder puffs, they should be replaced every month or so. Bacteria builds up quickly and can cause breakouts and other skin irritations that you surely don’t want to contend with. Also, if you switch types of powders, you should change your puff as well. After all, you don’t want glitter from your fun night out to transfer to your day look for the office!
