ULTRA HD INVISIBLE MICRO-SETTING POWDER
Product performance is important but make up remains playful. I wanted to create a universe of freedom by imagining infinite colors with high technology whilst being simple products for an ultra-long-lasting result. I wanted makeup to become a source of inspiration, a real field of possibilities.” Dany SANZ MAKE UP FOR EVER founder.
Trained as a painter and a sculptor, Dany SANZ discovered makeup and body art while she was painting theatre sets : a revelation! In the eighties, there were very few makeup products available and a limited number of shades. To address the unmet needs of makeup artists, she created the MAKE UP FOR EVER brand in 1984. She developed her first highly pigmented and high-performance formulas. A true revolution in the world of makeup: a creative and innovative brand with products designed for everyone. Dany SANZ has been teaching makeup techniques for the past 40 years and has inspired generations of makeup artists as an authentic pioneer, her legacy lives on.
Today, at MAKE UP FOR EVER, we are a collective of makeup artists co-creating high performance products and services. Through our artistry, we inspire and empower people to unleash their personal edge.

Formulated by the Pros, 12 setting shades are color-matched to skin on the spectrum; two shades are designed just for baking, and two Soft-Light shades provide a gentle, subtly lit effect on dull skins.

PRO SETTING TECHNIQUE
Our pros’ go-to technique for setting, mattifying, and correcting.
#1: Apply Ultra HD Invisible Micro-Setting Powder from the center of the face outwards with sweeping strokes for a light, natural matte finish.
#2: Set the undereye if desired. Remove excess concealer with your brush before applying powder.
#3: For a super-smooth finish, do a final sweep across the face with your brush to remove any extra powder.
PRO BAKING TECHNIQUE
Set your base makeup by letting it bake.
#1: Take a generous amount of Ultra HD Invisible Micro-Setting Powder with your puff or brush.
#2: Apply to the undereye area in a triangle shape with a dabbing motion—without stretching the powder.
#3: Leave on to bake for 5-10 minutes. The heat from your skin will bake (set) your foundation and concealer.
#4: Swipe off any excess powder with your brush.
