When it comes to making your make up last all day long, there is one crucial step which you mustn’t miss – Setting. Not by using a spray, but focusing on setting your base in place with powder. Whether you choose to bake, or simply dust powder lightly to set, you can’t skip this. Of course, you know I love my trusty RCMA and the Huda Beauty Easy Bake. So when Morphe Brushes decided to drop powders, I was listening.


Now before we get into the details of the powder itself, here’s a little info. For the uninitiated, baking is a process of letting translucent powder sit on your face for five to 10 minutes. This allows the heat from your face to set your base foundation and concealer. Follow it up by dusting it off your face. As a result, you are left with a creaseless, flawless finish.

And you KNOW it’s legit when Kim K’s MUA, Mario Dedivanovic swears by it.

Anyhoo, back to the Bake & Set powders.


Bake and set your look for a bomb beat with these selfie-approved, satiny loose powders. Formulated to absorb oil and seamlessly lock in makeup, these babes provide a perfectly matte finish with zero flashback.

The Shade Game
  • Translucent – A sheer, soft-focus finish / Ideal for fair to tan skin tones
  • Translucent Rich – A sheer, soft-focus finish with a hint of tint / Ideal for rich to deep skin tones
  • Brightening Pink – A warm, brightening, soft-focus finish / Ideal for fair to medium skin tones
  • Banana – A color-correcting, brightening, soft-focus finish / Ideal for light to tan skin tones
  • Banana Rich – A color-correcting, brightening, soft-focus finish with a hint of tint / Ideal for tan to deep skin tones

Ofcourse, the shade range isn’t as vast as Fenty Beauty or Huda Beauty, but it still works. For a brand such as Morphe, I think they did pretty well in this department.

Similar to Morphe Brushes’ style, the powders retail for $12 each. You can shop them on morphebrushes.com.
