Is this the first time you are using mineral makeup? If it is, then you should learn how to apply this correctly.
Before you put this on your face, you first have to moisturize your face. One thing you should know about mineral makeup is that the powder adheres to the natural oil of your skin so if your face is too dry, the powder might end up looking like what is inside the bottle.
Now apply lotion and wait for ten minutes because if you have an oily face, it will melt the make up. Just how much should you put on your face? It depends so you have to find out the correct amount through trail and error to achieve the right balance.
Open the mineral makeup foundation and a small amount into the cap of the bottle. If this is too much, try putting in your finger and add more if needed. Then you apply eyeliner and use your kabuki brush to dust off any powder droppings from your cheeks.
There may be some dark spots under your eyes or around your face so dab it with enhancers. Again, use your fingertip to get a small amount then apply this over the targeted area and make it look brighter.
With your kabuki brush, swirl it in the cap then tap the brush to dust off the extra powder. Apply this to your skin in a circular motion by first working on the cheeks and then moving off to the side of your face.
When you get the look you want using the foundation, it is time to apply the setting powder. The good news is that how you apply it is the same as applying the foundation so that should not be a problem.
From there, you can use other mineral makeup products such as lipstick, mascara or eye shadow so that when you look in the mirror, you will look absolutely gorgeous.
One thing you should remember about using mineral makeup is to choose the right kind of brush. This is because the brush is the best tool to use to cover large areas of your face and if you decide to use a cheap one, people will notice it. So to avoid the embarrassment, buy one that is decent even if it costs a bit more that what you are used to buying.
Mineral makeup has revolutionized the cosmetics industry even if it has been around since the 1970’s. This is the first of its kind that does not use any harmful substances since it is all natural so you are sure to look good from resources that are pure from the earth.
It is also great to use if you suffer from acne, eczema or any other skin condition because it does not contain the same amount of ingredients found in traditional make-up. These even have soothing properties to heal such conditions and protect your face and your skin from the sun’s harmful rays.
So what are you waiting for? Get a few mineral makeup products and experience the change just like others have already done. You won’t regret ever buying it and if one or two of these give you an itch, try out another one that will not give you the same side effect.
