Quick! The warm weather is among us and whether you like it or not sweat is coming! Over the years, setting powders have become one of those must-have products in your strategically planned makeup routine but let’s face it, it truly strikes into action when the spring/summer months hit us and blocks any shine that wants to peek through that perfectly beat face.

In addition to that, it is also a staple product in our collections because it combats shine from lights. With all the setting powders out there in the world, it can be hard to select one that will do the job without caking up your face. That’s why I’m here to save the day and provide you with all our favorite affordable setting powders because who says beauty has to be expensive?

Maybelline New York Fit Me Loose Finishing Powder, $7.99

This one is my all-time favorite from the drugstore. It’s so affordable and contains so much product. It’s long-lasting and helps keep my oily face matte throughout the long work day. I like using it to bake and set my concealer in place but it can also be used all over the face.
