Everyday Uses for Theatrical Makeup: Ben Nye Colorless Powder/ Mehron Colorset Powder

Posted by

For those people who are blessed with a lack of under-eye bags or are simply well-rested but still want to keep their eye makeup from transferring, there is Ben Nye's Colorless Powder or Mehron Colorset Powder. These powders appear white in their undisturbed form but when applied do not deposit any color. In the images below, the powders are seen in their pure form placed over creme color makeup then in the lower register both powders are blended into the creme. 

As you can see, the creme colors remain intact. Colorless powder is good to secure any liquid or creme makeup. The powders can be used to keep your makeup in place with a slightly less dewy appearance or can be built up to create a more solid matte texture. Paired with Ben Nye Final Seal Spray sprayed over the top, the powders can help keep your makeup in place all day. Both powders can be applied with the baking technique or simply brushed lightly over the liquid or creme makeup.
