By using a sponge or brush you can control the amount of power you “pick up” and apply to your face. Simply, swipe the sponge across the pressed powder and tap off the excess. Then lightly apply the pad with the powder side to your skin area. “Sweep” it across your skin to get an over all even application. By using a sponge you can “blend” the anti-shine powder so that it disappears on your skin.
In contrast, our Kabuki brush allows you to “dust” the pressed powder across your face which delivers a bit of “suntan” color to your skin. Generally our brush is used to apply our HDPV Anti-Shine pressed powder across the forehead, on the bridge of the nose, on the cheek bone areas.
With both applications, our HDPV pressed powder is matte and delivers natural looking skin tone coverage.
Start by applying a bit of powder with the sponge. If you still see facial shine/oily skin, add a little more again by sweeping the pad with powder on top of your skin. Keep adding until you are satisfied with your result and have the oil free look that you wish. If you apply more than you want, simply take a tissue to wipe over the area to reduce the amount on your skin.
Yes, the more you put on in one area, the darker it will become. If you only wish to remove oily shine, a light application is needed. If you are looking to enhance/add more color to your natural skin shade (light, medium, dark, bronze, or sunless tan), you can add more powder.
NO, our HDPV pressed powder is non-comedogenic; which means the cosmetic product will not clog pores. HDPV Anti-Shine provides a matte finish with none of the oily ingredients that can cause skin irritations and problems. It’s purpose is to remove shine and cover blemishes, not make them!
Yes, you should always wash your face at the end of the day to remove anything on your skin, such as dirt, sweat, and other unhealthy pollutants, as well as cosmetics. Use a simple facial cleanser to ensure your skin is healthy clean and then use a moisturizer and/or nightly anti-aging lotion to hydrate and deliver vitamins and nutrients to your skin while you sleep.
No, it will only come off if you wipe your face with a towel. Otherwise, as long as you apply and allow the HDPV Anti-Shine pressed powder to adhere for a couple minutes on your skin, it it should stay on your face until you wash it off, whether you sweat or not.
That the original purpose, however, many men now use this amazing camouflage product on other skin areas. So, feel free to use our HDPV pressed powders anywhere you wish to reduce oily shine, lessen the appearance of a topical skin imperfection, or add a bit of a summer sun tan. For example, your neck.
Since HDPV pressed powder provides hi-def undetectable coverage for hours, you will get many applications. However, how many uses will depend upon how much you use with each application, e.g. how much you apply to your face and how often you use it.
This men’s makeup achieves optimal coverage to deliver a natural, undetectable finish. Use alone or over MËNAJI Urban Camouflage® CAMO Concealers for more complete coverage. Formulated for daily use and excellent for photography, film, and TV needs.
