We Found a Heavy Duty Powder Foundation Fit for Philippine Weather!

The Make Up For Ever HD Skin Matte Velvet Powder Foundation is long-lasting, lightweight, and buildable!

When we go out with a full face of makeup on, retouching is always a concern. The Philippines has always been hot and humid, so the risk of our carefully applied foundation melting off while we’re out and about is often top of mind. An ideal product would be a long-lasting product that lays on matte, wears comfortably, and is compact enough to store in a bag you’re comfortable carrying throughout the day. 


Enter Make Up Forever’s HD Skin Matte Velvet Powder Foundation, a solid alternative to its liquid line that promises buildable coverage and 24-hour comfort wear.

“Powder foundation evens out our skin, making it look flawless despite the absence of liquid products,” shares professional makeup artist Lei Ponce. “It’s lightweight, too, making it perfect to use for our weather. The HD Skin Matte Velvet Powder Foundation is particularly special due to its formulation. It was created to be smudge-proof and waterproof, with mattfying and blurring properties. There are also no animal-derived ingredients in its formula.” 


Dubbed the trio blur complex, the formula is a mix of a lightweight oil and cream pigments that sit on the skin in the most comfortable and undetectable way, making it ideal for long-wear use.

The product line boasts a wide shade range—38 all in all—to ensure the perfect match for every skin tone and undertone. If your veins are blue and you have cool undertones, your shade starts with R. If your veins are green and you have warm undertones, your shade starts with Y. If your veins are in somewhere in between and you have neutral undertones, you shade starts with N.


It comes in a handy compact with an applicator sponge, both sides of which serve different purposes. Using the logo side will give you light to medium coverage. Using the velvet side will give you a full coverage finish as it covers redness, acne, discoloration, and shine. Should you wish to use it as a sheer finishing veil over your skincare products, you may apply the product with a brush.

“The produce is best used after you go about your regular skincare routine,” Ponce adds. “The tackiness of the moisturizer or the serum will help the product adhere better. There is no need for liquid foundation or concealer since you can work your way up to a full coverage finish.” 


The Make Up Forever HD Skin Matte Velvet Powder Foundation is now available in stores and online via makeupforever.ph and Zalora.
