I use Too Faced pressed powder and I doesn’t cause flashback.  

In the video I am using as a tutorial for my makeup the woman is a makeup artist and she used MAC mineralize skinfinish on her wedding day.  Seems to me like it should flash back being a mineralized product but she didn’t mention anything.  Her photos looked lovely and I almost want to try it, but I have gone through so many makeup products that didn’t work I am hesitant to mess with a good thing!

@deedeelicious:  So, there is a great youtube video that talks about this more in-depth, but to sum up: whatever powder you use, make sure it has the same type of base as your foundation. So if the foundation is silicone based, use a silicone powder, oil based-foundation = oil-based powder, and water-based foundation with water based powder. You can figure out which is which by looking at the first several ingredients – if a lot of oils are listed near the top, it’s obviously oil, if silicone is near the top instead of the bottom, it’s prolly silicone, etc.

try the mac loose powder since the studiofix is a medium to high coverage! be careful though, technically they say that any foundation with an spf will cause a flashback (which I believe the studio fix fluid has), but i’ve heard different reviews with mac studiofix. some people also say studio fix powder causes flashback but i’ve never had a problem with it. good luck testing! let us know what you choose! and make sure you purchase a quality primer that is correct for your skin type (smashbox has a variety, and laura mercier makes fantastic ones too!)

It’s the SPF in makeup that generally causes flash back…try getting ones that have good pigmentation and no SPF..I love Mac myself…if you use Mac buy paint pot to put under your lid so you don’t gets creases and your makeup looks fresh all day.

I go by old lady standards and use Coty Airspun extra croverage (my great grandmother wore it) & it’s amazing. I can even wear it on top of a bb cream and I no longer use my  high dollar base from Sephora!

Avoid anything with sunscreen in it. Sunscreen will make you shiny.

@deedeelicious:  Awesome! I think you’ll really like it 🙂 I generally use it as an all over powder I know Kim Kardashian uses it as a highlighting powder to set the concealer under her eyes but I’m not as dark as her so when  I tried it that way I looked stupid (for lack of a better word lol).

I personally used Bobbie Brown makeup- the pressed powder put on with a brush and on especially oily spots with the makeup artists fingers.  It was beautiful

I used Make Up For Ever “high definition” powder – translucent, and I thought my skin looked great in photos. 

I needed reapplication by dinnertime, but it held up nicely all through my photo session and ceremony.  if it’s hot and/or you have a tendency for oily skin, then any type of powder is going to need to be reapplied, no matter what brand you choose.
