Gone are the days of flicking through Insta, looking at everyone’s pics and thinking, ‘Damn, I wish I looked like that.’ Well, thanks to banana powder, the makeup must-have that everyone’s going cray for, anyone can get their grid game on a par with Kim K. So if you haven’t jumped on the banana bandwagon already, pack your beauty kit because we’re gonna show you how it can take you from mediocre makeup to straight-up selfie queen!
What is banana powder and what is it used for?
Short answer – it’s magic! Long(er) answer – it’s an ultra-fine, yellow-toned powder that you apply to your face. Banana powder sets concealer, neutralises darkness and colour corrects any skin redness – and, apparently, it’s even got the seal of approval of Kim Kardashian’s make-up artist Mario Dedivanovic.
Mario reportedly swears by this fine, loose powder to create a flawless finish on any skin tone – and always uses it on his celebrity clients, such as Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez and Katy Perry, for an airbrushed, camera-ready complexion.
How to use banana powder
Banana powder should be used after your foundation and concealer. The pros suggest you apply the fine, loose powder with a beauty blending sponge after pouring a small amount of the powder on to the back of your hand.
To set your makeup, take some of the product on a large, fluffy powder brush and sweep over your cream products (like foundation and concealer). If you wanna go full-blown Insta queen and bake your look, use a makeup sponge and press the product into the areas you want to have a pop of brightness.We recommend using it under your eyes, and on your nose and forehead, but you can even apply it under your contour to give your cheekbones definition to die for. Allow to set for 5 minutes before gently buffing any excess into the skin. The result? Brightened, perfectly highlighted skin and make-up that will stay in place all day.
