Q: Which setting powders tone down shine and prolong makeup's longevity?

"I much prefer a pressed setting powder over a loose setting powder," says Gucci teasing out a much-requested Westman Atelier formula that's currently in the works. No matter your skin type, the height of summer makes keeping your makeup looking fresh challenging, especially once stepping outside.

Gucci's pro tips for mattifying the complexion and sweat-proofing makeup include using Beauty Butter Bronzer in Soleil Riche if your skin is tan to deep, or rice blotting papers for if your skin is very oily. When choosing a powder, she recommends a light-handed brush application by the nasal lobes, chin, and forehead to reduce shine and preserve the skin's natural radiance. Watch the full video now to learn one additional red carpet trick that's surprisingly effective!
