HOW TO USE MINERAL FOUNDATION
· Begin with your favourite moisturizer, and allow time for it to be well-absorbed by your skin.
· Apply your mineral foundation with a good soft brush. Sprinkle a tiny bit of mineral foundation into a small bowl or the lid of your foundation jar, and swirl your brush in the powder. Now, time to get tapping. Cradle the lid or bowl in the palm of your hand and tap your brush in the lid until almost all of the powder disappears into the bristles.
· Now, brush the foundation lightly onto the skin with a downward circle motion. Buffing isn’t necessary! The amount on your brush will be enough to cover half your face. Truly. For more coverage, simply repeat the process, putting more foundation only on the parts of your face where you prefer more coverage. Typically, you can apply up to three layers without looking too heavy. But if it does, try spritzing your face with water between layers and allow the water to air-dry before the next layer.
Option: Prefer a cream or liquid foundation? Just mix a little mineral powder into some moisturizer. Those with oily skin sometimes find that minerals mixed with aloe gel or a dab of glycerin blended with a touch of water provide a lovely oil-free finish.
