When Bobbi Brown looks you in the eye and says “this product is a game-changer,” you immediately start taking notes. Such was my lucky circumstance yesterday afternoon backstage at the Veronica Beard show. The makeup guru was giving models an “urban-desert” look that involved matte skin and smoky lids, and she was incorporating upcoming launches from her spring 2013 collection. The yet-to-be-released product she seems most excited about? Retouching powders. “These are kind of the miracle workers of the season,” explained Brown as she gestured for me to feel the ultra-lightweight texture of the powders. “They are perfectors and correctors and make you look retouched. Plus, they’re completely invisible on your skin.” Even though you can’t buy them yet, I am totally sold.
Another game-changing powder? Koh Gen Do’s Maifanshi lighting powder is a skin perfector, too.
