How To Apply Mineral Foundation
Just as with the large shadow brush, use a wholesale mineral makeup kabuki brush to swirl the foundation, and then tap away the excess before applying it to your face. If you need more foundation in the lid, feel free to add more as needed. Once you have the minerals on the brush, start at the outside jaw area of you face and apply the mineral makeup, using a swirling motion. Work your way from the sides of your face inward and then cover your forehead, nose, eyes, chin, and mouth area. You should reapply the mineral powder to your brush 1-2 times while using the kabuki brush. If you would like more coverage then you will need to use a wholesale mineral makeup flat top brush. Whichever brush you prefer using, simple swirl it in the foundation just like the other brushes, tap off the excess, and gently apply to your skin by using a buffing motion. Begin at the nose and inner cheek area and work your way outwards. You can also use this technique around the eye area, but be very light-handed when doing so. Once you are finished with the application, gently buff out the jaw line of your face so there are no apparent demarcation lines between your jaw and your neck. Next you will be adding colour to your face by using a blush, a warming colour or bronzer, or both a blush and a warming colour or bronzer. Begin by shaking the mineral powder into the appropriate lids. If you are applying a blush, then begin by grabbing the wholesale mineral makeup blush brush. Lightly dip the brush into the mineral powder on the lid, swirl slightly, and tap off any excess. Next place the brush on your cheek area where the middle of your eye sits. On most people this is approximately where the apples of your cheeks are. To verify, smile slightly to see which area of your cheek raises up and outwards. Sweep the brush over your cheek area, not going past the outer corner of your eyes. You don't want to make clown-like circles or racing stripes, so be sure to blend the colour and be somewhat light-handed in the application process. Remember, it's much easier to add than to take away. Whether you choose to use a warming colour or a bronzer alone or with a blush colour, you will be applying it in the same fashion. Just as in Step 7, you will be using the blush brush. First begin by wiping the brush clean with a dry towel or paper towel. Next, lightly dip the brush into the mineral powder, swirl slightly, and tap off the excess. Now lightly apply the colour across your cheeks and up your temples, very lightly down the centre of your nose, on your chin, over your forehead and very lightly on your ears. Most of the time when a bronzer or warming colour is applied the ears get missed and it tends to give you an incomplete look. Finally, gently sweep the brush downward from your jaw down your neck, in order to give you a more natural look. The final step of mineral makeup is the finishing veil powder. Shake a small amount into the lid, take the Kabuki brush, swirl it in the powder, and then tap off the excess. Finishing veil powder can be used where ever you would like, in order to finish your mineral makeup application. Begin by lightly sweeping over your nose and cheek area, chin, and forehead. Finish by closing you eyes and lightly sweeping it over you lids. Once you have applied the mineral veil powder, you mineral makeup is complete. Feel free to apply eye shadow as well, but if you are going for a minimal and more natural look, use a neutral eye shadow.
