also setting sprays are good too if you want your face to last longer, like the e.l.f one forgot the name

i like the cover girl tranluscent power because it finshes off my face and makes everything matte i know some people use translucent power just on where they put there concealor but i put this stuff all over my face and the e.l.f one is good too and inexpensive

I love Hourglass' Ambient Lighting Powder in Diffused Light. It gives my skin that soft focus look, and makes my skin look great even in unflattering lighting.

 

If I need my makeup to be more long-lasting (long day, or going dancing), I also like to use Urban Decay's All Nighter spray, so my makeup looks fresh longer.

I love Urban Decay's All-Nighter setting spray if you have oily skin or makeup tends to slide around on your face. You spray it before you apply your makeup as a kind of toner/base, apply your makeup, and then spritz again to lock in the look. It makes your makeup look a lot more natural, especially if you're not a fan of the matte-face look, and prolongs its wear. 

 

If you're not looking for a spray and you want that "HD" look, you could try the finely milled setting powders such as Makeup Forever HD Microfinish Setting Powder or Tarte's Smooth Operator.

I use Bobbi Brown Brightening Finishing Powder on an average day.  It definitely brightens and gives a rather airbrushed look to my foundation.  If it's rainy or humid, I spritz on some UD All Nighter.  It keeps everything water resistant and melt-proof.

I use a setting spray, especially if i'm going out in the heat.  Right now i'm using an inexpensive version by NYX, but I've heard good things about UD's all nighter spray.

I use Guerlain finishing powder when I go with a lighter touch- just concealer and tinted moisturizer. it helps to finish evening out everything and gives a beautiful finish.  Not shiny, but not true matte either.

I use nothing.  Nada.  Because I use Lancome's Dual Finish foundation, it does the job of foundation and powder all rolled into one.  Plus, I can actually build more coverage under my eyes, etc. by dabbing a bit more on those areas.  So, no more powder for me!
