The biggest and brightest stars of film and television rocked the red carpet last Sunday at the 18th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards. Not only did their jewels, gowns and shoes sparkle for fans and cameras around the world, but their faces looked luminous as well.
You don't need to be a superstar to shine. However, you can't apply sleek shadows, blushes and glosses without the right foundation. Proper powder coverage can turn you from girly to glam in an instant.
To achieve a silky smooth complexion, we've assembled the latest compact powder foundations. They travel well for quick touch-ups, and their handy mirrors help you create the right amount of radiance.
Powdering your face will never be the same!
