Ben Nye Banana Powder Review

Ben Nye Banana Powder for highlight and contour



I was first introduced to the Banana powder through YouTube! It was around the time Kim Kardashian’s highlight contour routine was blowing up and I fell in love with it.  I heard it was super versatile, and worked well on a wide range of skintones so I decided to give it a go depite the fact that Kim is more than a few shades lighter than I am.  It has become a staple in my beauty and makeup routine, and I find that I can comfortably use it all year round when I adjust the amount I use and how I apply it.  If you watch any of my makeup tutorials on YouTube, you can see this super powder in action.

The Trick is to

…make sure you find the amount that works for you.  Too much powder will leave ou with a ghostly look, but too little will be ineffective.  The right amount gives a beautiful glowing highlight that’s bright without flashback and adds gorgeous dimension to your face!

Also make sure you use the right tools! Some people like to use a sponge to press it into the skin, let it set and then brush away the excess.  This doesn’t work too well for me so I had to play around with it to find the best way for me!  The most important thing to remember is to blend, blend, blend.  This will ensure an even coverage that is essential to a natural finish.

    Thanks for this review I’ve always wondered how this performed on darker skin tones (As you can never be to sure!) I’ve had to many ‘casper the ghost’ moments with powder haha!

    I love your blog by the way! 😀
