What Exactly Does Precision Powdering Mean?
Precision powdering refers to isolating setting powder to specific "hot spots" as Vo calls them. By this, she means areas like the centre of the forehead, sides of the nose and the chin - areas that are prone to excess shine.
The key to this technique is definitely the brush. Instead of the huge powder brush you're used to using, Vo suggests opting for a smaller brush like Real Techniques Setting Brush to allow you to be precise in your application - a technique UK makeup artist Nikki Wolff also uses.
But what will you achieve from using this technique, you ask? Well, by isolating your setting powder, you can still achieve a dewy, radiant, skin-like finish, without merging into the territory of looking oily. And in turn, by not powdering down the entire face, you retain dimension and glow without the complexion looking flat and dull.
