My first experience with Ben Nye products took place more than 8 yrs ago at a costume shop in Tallahassee, Fl . I was looking for special effects kits when I came across a palette of amazing eyeshadows . The colors were vibrant and they glide on effortlessly, not to mention they were very affordable. I was amazed to say the least. From that moment on, I started experimenting with other Ben Nye products and that’s how I discovered the luxury powders. The banana powder is a translucent powder with a hint of color. It’s micro-milled for a silky fine texture with a superior matte finish. I used it as a highlighter and depending on the skin tone as a finishing powder. I decided to do a mini tutorial to show you how I use it.
“Beyoutiful” makeup should always begin with a nice canvas YOUR SKIN!!!
Start with clean moisturized skin.
Use primer all over or in the areas where you need it, such as the t-zones (nose, forehead & cheeks, it forms like a T, these are the areas people tend to be more oily at) or large pores.
Next, using a foundation brush apply foundation all over.
Set it with a sheer pressed or loose powder.
Then using a wedge sponge apply the “banana luxury powder” in the areas shown in the picture below.
6. The banana powder will provide a nice highlight and catch any eye shadow fall outs that may occur when you’re doing your eye makeup.
7. When you’re done with your eyes using a fan brush wisk away the excess powder.
8. Apply blush, lipstick, gloss, or both and you’re good to go.
