    I'm a bit flustered at this point. I've been trying to use power to set my look but I get more on my sweater or such than I get on my face! Any tips on how to keep power on your brush and off your clothes?

    Use a cream foundation more expensive than powder, but much easier to use and covers better Cream-to-powders also offer a bit more coverage than liquids or mousses. However, some can create a thicker, made-up look, and the cream ingredients can make oily skin types look more oily. This option is best for normal to dry skin types.CreamCream foundation is a good choice for those with dry or mature skin.

    You could try using a foundation stick for skin coverage and then you only need a little powder for setting the foundation. A good quality powder like Bare Minerals will adhere to the foundation and not come off on your clothes.

    It was more about powder not sticking to the brush. I would try and get a bit on the brush but half of it fell off the brush. I've tried a few different things but usually get more on my top than my brush

    That would normally indicate that you either have a poor quality brush or are using too much powder. You actually only need a surprisingly small amount. If you use it in conjunction with a cream or stick, you will get excellent coverage results to hide any flaws and using a smaller amount of powder will result in less being wasted.
