We’re over a week into our April partnership with Glamsquad, the on-demand at-home beauty service, and everything is going, well, perfectly.

All month long, Glamsquad, is all about Cover FX Perfect Setting Powder, our ultra-lightweight loose powder that sets makeup for all-day wear, minimizes transfer, and eliminates flashback. Not only have all Glamsquad makeup artists received Perfect Setting Powder to use on their clients, but also all Glamsquad makeup clients are scoring a free mini Perfect Setting Powder to try out on their own.

Curious about how Glamsquad’s makeup artists are incorporating Perfect Setting Powder into their work, we talked to a trio of team members who shared how they used the product and offered some additional expertise.

If you recognize Nadine Freire, it’s because she’s the makeup artist who worked her magic for this fun and inspiring video that kicked off our Glamsquad partnership. Based on Los Angeles, Nadine has been working with Glamsquad for over a year. She says her approach to working with clients is simple: “Listen to how they want to feel.”

Why is Cover FX Perfect Setting Powder an essential tool for you and how to you use it on clients?

I absolutely love how Perfect Setting Powder sets the makeup on my clients—and myself!—by leaving a natural, made-to-stay finish that looks like skin.

What’s a Perfect Setting Powder tip you like to share with your clients?

Unlike most setting powders, Perfect Setting Powder comes in two shades—Light and Deep. You can actually use Light and Deep Perfect Setting Powder together to naturally warm up the whole face to give you that sun-kissed glow.

What are five beauty/grooming/skincare items every woman should have in her arsenal?

  1. Exfoliating lip polish
  2. High quality makeup remover
  3. Anti-aging moisturizing
  4. Revitalizing facial spray
  5. Cover FX Blurring Primer

Aside from Perfect Setting Powder, what is your favorite Cover FX product? What do you like most about the brand?

I am currently loving Power Play Foundation in shade N50. It’s my go-to foundation for day and night. The full-coverage lightweight natural finish keeps my skin looking and feeling fresh. Cover FX is a favorite for me because of the brand’s mission to truly have multiple products for everyone to use and love.

Spring makeup trend you’re currently loving?

Glowy, bronzed skin—the no-makeup “makeup” look.

Jocelyn “Jossy’ Chia

“Glamsquad gave me the opportunity to focus on my makeup artistry fulltime. What I did was pretty gutsy and I don’t regret it one bit,” says Jocelyn “Jossy” Chia, who has been working with Glamsquad for just under a year. The DC-based makeup artist approaches her clients with the perspective that each one is unique. “Every client I get is totally different from the last and has different concerns, so being able to be as fluid as water makes the experience so much better.”

Why is Cover FX Perfect Setting Powder an essential tool for you and how to you use it on clients?

Working with Glamsquad in DC has given me the opportunity to work with many men and women in TV and having a powder that has no flashback is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Also, most loose powders get everywhere, but the cool double cap on Cover FX’s Perfect Setting Powder means it’s never messy.

What’s a Perfect Setting Powder tip you like to share with your clients?

Since the powder is super-fine, mix a little of it with your favorite foundation and tap in your most oil-prone areas.  It helps to create a medium coverage with a beautiful mattifying effect.

What are five beauty/grooming/skincare items every woman should have in her arsenal?

  1. Eye cream. . . Because we could also use some extra z’s.
  2. Vitamin E lip balm. . . Smooth lips are always a staple
  3. Mascara—Hey, eyes are the window to the soul, right?
  4. Concealer—I can totally use concealer to hide anything!
  5. Cover FX Illuminating Setting Spray. . . It helps to freshen any type of skin and make it appear youthful

What do you like most about Cover FX?

I love that the brand has an all-inclusive shade range.  This is very important to me not only as a makeup artist, but also a consumer. Women in my family come in all shades, and for a long time, some of them couldn’t use certain brands because the shades weren’t right.  Cover FX’s #nudeisnotbeige campaign made me happier than you could ever imagine.

Go-to beauty Instagram accounts?

I love @michellypalmamakeup, @makeupwithjah, and most makeup brands’ IGs. I love when they get artists like me to show which techniques they’re doing.

Spring makeup trend you are you currently loving?

Super silky shiny skin. I call that my “4S’s”—it’s everywhere right now and it just looks so hot!

Sasha Colina

“I am all about an effortless beauty look, which we all know takes a lot of work!” says Sasha Colina, a New York City makeup artist who has been working with Glamsquad for a year-and-a-half, but has been doing makeup for a decade. “I love enhancing a client’s natural features and depending on her mood, amping it up from there!”

Why is Cover FX Perfect Setting Powder an essential tool for you and how to you use it on clients?

It truly sets makeup without adding extra weight or coverage. I use it to set makeup strategically: under the eyes, around the nose, on the forehead, and anywhere a client can get oily!

What’s a Perfect Setting Powder tip you like to share with your clients?

You can use Perfect Setting Powder to set around the jawline to create a more sculpted and contoured cheek.

What are five beauty/grooming/skincare items every woman should have in her arsenal?

Hmm, this is going to be tricky to limit to five, but:

  1. Concealer
  2. Lipstick
  3. Mascara
  4. Cleanser
  5. Moisturizer

Aside from Perfect Setting Powder, what is your favorite Cover FX product? What do you like most about the brand?

The Custom Enhancer Drops are so versatile! As for the brand, I love that it is 100% vegan because I’m vegan myself. It’s so important for me to use brands that don’t test on animals.

Go-to beauty Instagram accounts?

I love following @hungvanngo and @nikki_makeup

Spring makeup trend you are you currently loving?

A pop of color on the eyes—like a bright blue eyeliner!
