How To Apply Mineral Powder As A Foundation
If you're looking to achieve a lightweight and natural look then mineral powder foundation is for you. The way it works is it mimics the skin’s tone and texture, so that your skin is perfected, not just covered. You can build it up to cover blemishes whilst avoiding foundation streaks or patches. Here are the steps.
Firstly ensure you buy the right brush, most brands will have a brush which compliments their product and pot size. The brush is usually large and round and is designed to effectively buff on the mineral makeup, its short bristles provide fuller coverage and they hold plenty of powder.
Always moisturise your face first as mineral foundation wont bond to dry skin, moisturising first will help your foundation to stick so it will last throughout the day.
Remember a little goes a long way which is why your make up will last so much longer! Tip a small amount into the lid of your pot. Dab your brush into it and move in circular motion to rub in the powder and tap any excess off into the lid.
Apply to your face using circular motions. Add more powder as you go for an even coverage across your entire face. When you first start applying mineral powder you may feel that its not doing much. Its very different to applying liquid foundation where you instantly see the coverage. Mineral powder foundation is more subtle and it builds up as you continue to buff. By the time you’re finished you will see the difference. You can complete your look with concealer or blush or bronzer as desired.
