Real clay with a slight shimmer (except no. 344 chocolate and 346 which are matt), cooked in an oven, ideal for a tanned complexion and cleavage throughout the year. Bright golden copper, bronze, apricot or a pinkish-brown tan … choose your shade to match the season. Note that all of our powders are talc-free.

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

This product, as with all ZAO products, is free from parabens (synthetic preservatives), using instead micronised silver as an effective and non-toxic preservative. ZAO does not use nanoparticles in their products, with the micronised silver being larger than nanoparticle size, making ZAO products safe and free from toxic preservatives.

Instructions for use: This clay is ideal for those who love a great summer look! It gives the face a beautiful amber glow, a silky look that lasts all day. To structure and define the shape of your face, use a blush brush and apply mineral cooked powder on the contours of your face: from the top of the forehead along the hairline, down and along the lower line of your cheekbones, and finishing along the underside of the jaws. The idea is to draw a "3" on each side of your face. Finalise the look by applying the powder on the nose for a long nose, or on the sides of the nose for a wide nose. With this radiant, structured powder look, you can enjoy a sunshine feeling all year round. Adjust the tone to match the season. Your face will get a summery glow and look sculpted within seconds.

ZAO Beauty tip: Mineral Cooked Powder is designed to shape your face rather than for complete coverage which would harden features.

Lighter than the other powders in the range, the 346 can be used in different ways, depending on skin type:

  • For combination/oily skin, it can be used as a classic 'bronzing powder', sculpting, structuring and warming the face. Ideally applied with the Face Brush (156702) by making a kind of inverted "3" on each side of the face.
  • For a tired complexion, Mineral Cooked Powder 346 can replace foundation, warming and mattifying the complexion instantly. Apply with a Kabuki Brush (156701) for a subtle and light coverage or the powder puff (156751) for a more intense coverage.
  • For lighter skin tones, Mineral Cooked Powder 346 is best used as a blush on cheekbones to brighten complexion.
  • All skin types can use Mineral Cooked Powder 346 for 'retouching' throughout the day.

    Great bronzer!

    Posted by Amelia on 30th Apr 2019

    Loving this bronzer, find that I can go as light or as heavy as I want, and the lovely copper shade acts as both bronzer and light blusher. Also the bamboo case is great, and was so pleased to hear the packaging peanuts are made from a biodegradable corn starch and dissolve in water! Win win! Can't wait to buy more products :)

    Lovely powder

    Posted by Bellah on 22nd Apr 2019

    As with other powders I tried from Zao,I am happy with this one. I like consistency and colour-I use it on top of foundation,just to make me a bit sun kissed as I am very pale. This powder is not dark!! It is lighter colour, but for me it works this way.

    Absolutely love it.

    Posted by Vicky on 15th Mar 2019

    I have dark brown hair and light/medium skin. This bronzer is like some kind of magic. The texture is amazing, somehow creamy even though it is solid which makes it so easy to apply and blend. It has a gorgeous sheen but isn't 'sparkly' or 'glittery' like some products are. It just looks so natural and your face literally glows and looks so healthy. No orange tango face either, the colour is absolutely perfect. It's my favourite product in my make up bag.
