Have you heard of ‘banana powder’? It’s a soft yellow powder that can be used to both contour your face and set your makeup. It has it’s origins in theatre, where the banana powder was used to lighten up the skin and make the facial features more visible for the audience, but lately banana powder has gained popularity because of celebrities like Kim Kardashian, who credit the powder for their glowing healthy looking skin.
But Vyana’s powder is made with only natural ingredients and it is 100% vegan. Actually, our ‘banana’ powder’ is made with organic papaya instead of banana. We chose to papaya since it’s rich in vitamin A and vitamin C, which gives the skin a real antioxidant boost and help to rejuvenate the skin. And when organic papaya is dried and made into a powder, it has a lovely soft yellow hue that is perfect for brightening and highlighting the skin.
Here’s the ingredients list of Vyana’s papaya brightening powder: organic papaya powder, arrow root powder, iron oxide, organic ginger extract, organic cornstarch, white clay. That’s it!
So, how to use our Papaya brightening powder?
Well, however you want, because it truly is a multi-functional product! You can use it as a setting powder by applying it with a big fluffy brush after you have applied the rest of your makeup. Or, you can use it as a highlighting powder, applying it in a triangle shape under your eyes and on top of your cheekbones. The yellow tones also helps to neutralize any redness on the skin, so it works well as a corrector powder for any redness. Some of our customers even use it as a foundation powder for olive skin tones. The possibilities are endless!
