Powder Eyeshadow

Powder eyeshadow is dry, and it works best for oily skin as it won’t crease on skin immediately (we are talking about the quality eyeshadow). Such eyeshadow gives a soft and natural finish to the look and is buildable. It is simple to apply. Basically, this eyeshadow type comes in pearl and matte finishes. It is quite cost-effective as it is often sold in palettes of the hues that complement one another nicely.
