It seems mineral makeup foundation has become a buzz word these days, so many people decide to give it a try. There is a great deal of disappointment because mineral makeup foundation is somewhat trickier to apply than liquid foundation is. Here are some tips to get that flawless finish.
1. Choose The Best Shade For Your Skin
The best place to test for a match to your skin tone is along your jaw line near your neck. You can also use the fleshy part of your hand or your wrist. If you are unable to do a shade test, then take the sealed jar and match the shade closest to your wrist.
If you are trying to cover up blemishes or uneven skin tones many professionals recommend that you go one to two shades darker. Don’t worry unlike cream foundation it won’t look dark. Mineral foundation brightens your complexion.
2. Properly Prepare Your Skin
All makeup goes on best when the skin has been properly cleansed and then moisturized. This is especially true with dry skin. You should always let the moisturizer soak in completely. If you have oily skin, rather than a foundation opt for a foundation primer.
3. Around and Around You Go
For the best coverage use your kabuki brush which is a shorter, denser brush. Dip your brush into the mineral makeup foundation, Maklon Kosmetik then push the bristles against the back of your hand to push the powder into the brush. Tap off the excess. Use continuous circular motions to apply your mineral foundation to your face, working from the t zone out.
4. Finish it Up
You can use mineral powder concealer where necessary. If you need a little more coverage just dip your flat concealer brush into your mineral makeup foundation, tap the excess off, and press the remainder into the trouble spot.
If your skin is oily you should look for a matte finish, or consider using a mineral finishing powder on top of your mineral foundation. Apply the same way with light, circular brush motions. This will create a pore free natural matte finish. It also helps your foundation stay on longer.
5. Complete the Rest of Your Makeup
Now just finish up your eyes, lips, and cheeks and you’re ready to look and feel great.
It’s not surprising that mineral makeup has become so popular. With a little practice your mineral foundation and the rest of your makeup will look fantastic.
