Do you want to avoid shine on your face? Go for the powder compact. It sets, mattifies and balances the complexion for a smooth and silky finish. Note that all of our powders are free from talc and nanoparticles.

Shade 301 is invisible and suits fair complexions for whom added colour looks unnatural.

Shade 302 suits those with medium complexions and warm undertones.

Shade 303 suits those with medium complexions and neutral undertones.

Shade 304 suits those with medium complexions and cool/olive undertones.

Shade 305 suits those with darker complexions and cool undertones.

Packaged in a unique, varnished bamboo case and attractively presented in a cotton pouch with drawstring, ZAO makeup is both a beautiful gift and an item to treasure.

Instructions for use: Compact powder is an essential in your makeup bag to maintain a shine-free, even complexion, thanks to its high capacity to absorb sebum (natural facial oils).For a matt effect, apply the compact powder with the Zao Face Brush. To cover problem areas, use a sponge to apply the compact powder, such as ZAO's natural rubber sponge. In both cases, always choose the same shade to your skin tone and use the product immediately after moisturising. To perfect your complexion over foundation, apply compact powder by choosing a tone lighter your skin tone. For a natural look, use a powder brush; for a 'babydoll' effect, use the sponge.

ZAO Beauty Tip: Always remember to dust your eyes before applying mascara and eyeliner, to set your eye makeup and prevent it smudging after a long day. Looking for a darker shade? Go for the Mineral Cooked Powder no. 344 (chocolate) – this is a matt cooked powder that is not only used for a bronzing effect but also as an everyday powder to mattify the full face or as a blush for darker skin.

    Compact face powder

    Posted by Jayne Winter on 25th Jul 2019

    I am over the moon with this face powder, my first Zao purchase in my quest to go as plastic free as possible. I am so happy I have subsequently bought the eyebrow powder, blusher and mascara. All of them are lovely.
    The bamboo cases are such good quality and are so beautifully made and also come with a a little drawstring pouch which will help to protect the casing when in my makeup bag.
    I was a little worried about which shade to buy as it was an online purchase. I just followed the advice on the Zao website. I am fair haired and fair skinned and would normally use a translucent powder from a mid price range UK brand. (My powder compact normally costs me £12).
    The powder I ordered is a perfect shade for me, very similar to the translucent one I usually order.
    The Zao compact is obviously more expensive than I would normally pay but for me so worth it to make this initial outlay as I know I will not be throwing anything away and when I buy the refill at £10 it is cheaper than my usual product so happy days!
    I feel like I have bought a beautiful, quality product and it does just the job for me. So happy I found this range.
    Two wishes that would make it even more perfect:
    1) as the compact is going to be reused again and again I would have loved it if a mirror could have been in the lid which you often find with a compact. I think this would be a really handy addition to the product.
    2) I wish I could buy this range in shops rather than online to try and reduce my carbon footprint

    Good quality, stays compacted and doesn’t crumble like most other powders. Nice coverage in a great natural tone. Would definite buy again.
