How To Apply Mineral Makeup

Being that mineral makeup is a fairly new concept to the world of cosmetics, it is often believed that mineral makeup is difficult to apply and is time consuming.

This could be the farthest from the truth! Mineral Makeup is extremely easy to apply, and takes less time then applying traditional cosmetics.

To apply mineral makeup there is only a few simple steps, and you will only need 2 things to apply mineral foundation; a container of mineral foundation and a makeup brush.

Step 1: Open your container of mineral makeup and pour a tiny amount into the lid of the jar. A little goes a long way and you can always add more if needed.

Step 2: Take your makeup brush and whirl it around in the lid. Make sure the brush is picking up the minerals.

Step 3: Dust off any extra minerals by lightly tapping the brush onto the side of the jar.

Step 4: Buff the brush full of minerals onto your face in a circular motion. Start with your cheeks and then forehead, chin, and nose. Be sure to blend all the way down onto your neck for a smooth look.

These are the only steps you need to apply your mineral foundation. This whole process usually takes about 2 minutes, so it can be applied even if you are short on time.

To apply additional mineral makeup such as blushes and eye shadows the same 4 steps are used. Just apply onto the cheeks and eyelids instead of over the entire face. If you want a more dramatic look to you eye shadows simply dip your shadow brush in water and then into your shadow and apply. This will give any shimmery eye shadows an extra glow and any matte shadows more color.

With a little practice, anyone can be a mineral makeup pro in no time!
