Since the OG banana powder Ben Nye Luxury Powders in Banana ($27) took the beauty world by storm, many brands have launched their own version of the product, proving that the makeup trend is back for 2020.
Banana powder, on the other hand, fell out of favor for a few years when translucent powders took center stage but this old-made-new-again makeup product is back in a big way.
"Banana powder is more advanced than translucent powder because it illuminates, smoothes, and brightens all at once," Jenna Kristina, makeup artist and U. S. brand ambassador for Maybelline New York, told POPSUGAR.
"Banana powder doesn’t just set your makeup [like translucent powder does], it brightens and is perfect for baking under your eyes," said Kristina.
