 Loose Mineral Foundation


STEP 1 – PREP YOUR SKIN

Any type of makeup goes on better when skin is freshly cleansed and moisturized. Allow moisturizer to absorb completely, and if you have oily skin, use a foundation primer.

STEP 2 – BRUSH ON

Use a good quality kabuki brush, it is shorter and denser than a regular brush & gives more coverage. Tap a small amount of powder into the lid of the sifter jar. Dip brush into powder foundation, tap off excess. Start off using very little, as it is highly pigmented. Holding your kabuki with brush facing upwards, gently tap the handle on a hard surface. This will settle the foundation inside the brush head. Using fairly firm pressure & continuous circular motions to buff the powder on your face. Repeat until you’ve  achieved the coverage you want. Buff to a smooth, even finish.

STEP 3 – GO FOR THE FINISH

Finishing powder extends the life of any foundation, while giving you the finish that you desire.
Simply dust on & you are ready to go!
