Keeping skin matte and even-toned during a Dubai summer is much easier said than done. With off-the-chart humidity and heat factors, face powder has become an essential part of our beauty regimen. Powder formulations have evolved over the past few years so they are no longer cakey and thick but rather light and hydrating. Yes you read correctly- most face powders are infused with hydrating and blurring particles that really keep shine at bay while at the same time nourishing skin and setting makeup for a longer lasting look. They also help even out imperfections so skin looks flawless. Here are our five favorite face powders to help get you through summer.
Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder
We love everything Charlotte Tilbury and this product is no exception! The light weight, micropowder has nano particles which help blur out imperfections and lines keeping skin fresh and smooth. An added bonus, it is formulated with rose wax and almond oil, so skin stays hydrated and smooth all day long.

Mac Mineralize Skin Finish
This tried and true classic is a slow-baked, domed powder that provides dimensional coverage thanks to the low-level pearlized pigments. The velvety, smooth, natural finish leaves skin glowing and keeps makeup put all day long. Since it contains a healthy dose of Vitamin E, skin feels nourished rather than dry.
