If you're new to mineral makeup, it could take a few applications to really get the hang of things. So we provide these tips to help you avoid problems that some people may have when they first switch to mineral cosmetics.
Mineral Foundation Application:
Less is best. You only need the smallest amount of mineral foundation to achieve a natural looking finish to your complexion. Only apply your foundation to a clean, toned and moisturized face. For best results make sure your moisturizer has soaked in before applying your foundation to avoid streaking.
- Place a small amount of foundation into the lid or desired container of your choice.
- Lightly dip your brush bristles into the foundation by swirling or tapping.
- Tap off any excess foundation back into the lid or container.
- Using a circular motion, gently buff the foundation onto your face.
- To achieve natural looking results, be sure to blend into your hairline and along your neck and jaw line.
- To build coverage, apply a light layer at a time until you attain your desired coverage.
If it seems to take several applications to attain your desired coverage, we suggest applying a concealer or finishing powder before your foundation.
Signs of Over Application:
- Mask or heavy looking.
- Large pores or fine lines emphasized.
- Blotchy or uneven appearance.
To avoid these possible problems, simply take the advice given above and remember less is more.
Makeup Tricks and Tips:
- Mix your mineral foundation with your favorite face cream to created you very own tinted moisturizer.
- If you have oily skin. Try applying your finishing powder first, then your foundation and finish up with more finishing powder to help control oily areas.
- If your skin shows a dry appearance after applying your mineral foundation, then the surface of the skin is too dry and needs exfoliation.
- After exfoliating your skin, be sure to follow up with a hydrating face cream.
- Let your cream soak in and apply your foundation.
