Loose Powder's For WOC (Women Of Color)
I struggled a long time trying to find a good loose powder for my skin tone. I have used powders that have made me look ashy, I struggled tried with trying to find the perfect powder to bake and highlight with and I can't tell you how frustrating it was.
After much research I began using Ben Nye Powder, I was a little skeptical about that powder even at first because.I had seen and watched many bloggers and influencers use Ben Nye Powder following Kim Kardashian famous tutorial with her makeup artist using it on her.
Once I started using it I loved it. Ben Nye has many different colors of powders to fit your skin tone, and it worked a long time and still does, Ben Nye is still one of my favorites, but I always like to change things up sometimes, so I started doing more research for companies that sold loose powders for my skin tone. And to my surprise, I did find more than a few. Here are a few popular loose powders for WOC that I have tried and plan on trying.
1. Sacha Buttercup
Sacha Butter Cup is my number one favorite powder. I recently started using this powder and I love it, this powder was made for WOC it melts like butter in the skin and makes for a beautiful highlight and get's rid of fine lines. I LOVE THIS Powder.

Laura Mercier offers two different powders that are great for all skin types and works very very well for women of color: This is another one of my favorites. I have the Laura Mercier in medium deep and I love it, it feels like butter on my skin. I plan to try the white tan like powder next because I have heard it's also amazing and gives a very flawless finish to your highlight. The Laura Mercier cosmetic company recently came out with the medium deep shade. FYI: If you are going for a more bolder highlight the white like tan powder is super good for that, the medium deep is an all around powder, but I don't recommend you using the medium/ deep to bake, from my experience only if you want a more of a natural finish.
