Velour Face Setting Powder

This silky Velour Face Powder is a true 1936 face powder! Made from the exact historical recipe, it delivers a flawless, soft matte finish. For the tint- we took the original tinting recipe from 1931. They told us what ingredients we needed to get the popular tints of the day like "Sunburn, Natural, Dark Brunette and Flesh" but they didn't tell us the amounts needed. So we took the original palette's and advertisement photos, along with the ones in our collection and used the original ingredients mixing it until we accomplished the "flesh" tint. This silky original recipe face powder keeps skin matte and free of shine. It's buildable and you can build it up from sheer to matte if you wish. 

In the 1930s face powder started coming in all different shades to help create a sheer, natural-looking complexion. Perhaps we can also offer different shades depending on how much you guys like this. This time around we did the "flesh" tint which is a pretty natural general tint for the time. 

NOTE: As with any powder, it may be jostled in shipping. When you receive our powders, let them sit face up for a few hours before you open them to let any dust calm down. Never tip the tin to open them, always hold the tin upright and straight when opening to avoid spilling. We suggest using a powder puff for application!
