Powder, paint, and pigment are three terms that can cause confusion among makeup enthusiasts. After all, they don’t seem like they should be related at all. But if you understand the differences between them and how they’re used in cosmetics today, then you’ll have an easier time choosing the right products for your skin tone and complexion concerns.

Powders

Powders are a type of cosmetic product that is used to provide coverage, color and texture. They are usually applied over liquid foundations or moisturizers to create a smooth finish. Powders come in many different forms, each with its own benefits:

  • Loose powder: A fine powder that can be applied with a brush or puff (for example, kabuki). Loose powders tend to give more coverage than pressed powders because they’re less dense–they don’t contain any binder like pressed powders do! This means you get more bang for your buck when it comes time for reapplication later on down the road; however some people may find this too messy for their liking since there’s still potential for spillage during application if not careful enough about how much product should be taken out at once without overloading onto face area before blending properly into skin tone areas firstly before working further down towards neckline area etcetera…

Paints

Paints are liquid or cream makeup that’s used to cover blemishes, dark circles, and other skin imperfections. They come in many different colors and can be applied with a brush (or sponge), finger or puff applicator.

Pigments

Pigments are ground-up minerals that have been mixed with an oil or wax to make them more spreadable. They’re used to color paint, ink and plastic. In cosmetics, pigments are used to color the skin; for example: blush and lipsticks are often made from red pigments.

This is a good breakdown of the different types of makeup

Pigments are the most common colorant in makeup. They’re made from minerals, plants, or animals and used in paints and dyes. In fact, pigments were used to create some of the earliest known paintings on cave walls. Modern-day pigments are also found in makeup products like eye shadows, lipsticks, blushes, powders and foundations–and they can help you achieve a variety of looks!
