I figured, if your skin is too yellowish compared to your neck and the rest of your body, this is a good shade to try on!
Guess what, you'll no longer have that problem if you use Althea's Petal Velvet Powder in Translucent. Various skintones can benefit from using this because it adapts automatically with whatever complexion you have.
However, some people who are highly acidic has a problem with translucent powders because they tend to oxidize on them giving them a touch of grey over their skin as time goes by. I am not saying that that will happen to everyone who has an acidic skin though since that will depend on one's skin's pH level anyway. I myself have acidic skin but when I use high-quality foundation and concealer (which is Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation in Desert Beige and Naturactor Cover Face in 130 for my skin type), makeup doesn't oxidize on me anymore. To get a perfect bade, it's about choosing and investing on a good primer, foundation, and concealer to set as well!
Now, let's talk about the Petal Velvet Sunaway:
KEEP THE SUN AWAY
Give your skin the look and feel of soft flower petals with this moisture-filled, velvety sunscreen. Filled with premium Damask rose extracts, Althea's Petal Velvet Sunaway uses advanced micro particle technology to protect the skin from UV rays while giving it a petal-like finish.
Shield your skin from the sun's rays and give it some petal protection with Althea's Petal Velvet Sunaway! Ultra lightweight, this invisible sunscreen is formulated with hyaluronic acid and Damask rose extracts, ensuring that your skin stays fresh and hydrated throughout the day without any streakiness or a white cast. It has an SPF of 50+ and PA++++, so your skin'll be kept protected all day.
As part of the Petal Velvet line, it also contains micro-powder particles that give you a smooth, petal-like complexion.
How to use:
Apply an even layer onto the skin and allow to absorb into the skin before going out into the sun.
I tested it on my arm and at first, it was very watery. When I shook the bottle again, it became a bit thicker. I like applying it little by little and layer by layer. A little bit goes a long way too!
On the right photo, I applied a little bit of Petal Velvet Sunaway on my face. It may not be that noticeable in pictures but my skin's appearance has improved - there was an instant sublte brightening effect on the skin plus it added a bit of glow (check my cheekbone reflecting light subtly). It wasn't able to conceal blemishes because that is not its purpose but it makes a nice canvas before putting on primer and foundation.
On days when I don't use makeup, I do the 10 to 12 step skincare regimen, however when going out, I prefer using only a toner, serum, and moisturizer so that they won't affect my makeup. Petal Velvet Sunaway is a wise pick honestly as I get sun protection but won't leave ugly white cast on flash photography!
My makeup lasted for several hours. Retouch wasn't.needed: blotting oil on my t-zone area was enough. Using the Petal Velvet Powders minimized the oiliness on my nose and forehead and yet its coverage is not that thick for it still shows my skin underneath. That way, it didn't make my makeup look cakey and flat, preventing me from looking older! I like it!
