Applying Loose Mineral Foundation

Applying loose mineral foundation a problem for you? I hear it all the time I cannot apply loose mineral foundation or at my age I shouldn’t wear it. Well you can!! I am older and I still wear mineral foundation. You need to have a good skin care regime and do a prep before applying loose mineral foundation.

The first and foremost thing in applying loose mineral foundation is you have to get a good match. If the foundation is off, you will not feel right about the rest of your makeup. You also have to find the right formula, our has a few ingredients and go on smoothly with no tugging.  We will get into ingredients in another post. Also you have to have the correct brushes to apply the foundation. This all takes trial and error but when you find the right one, you will not go back to liquid!!  Applying loose mineral foundation is fast and easy to apply and lasts all day.

Here are a few tips on how to apply loose mineral foundation.

Tip a small amount into the lid of your container or a small dish or a minerals mate.
Take your  brush and push gently into the powder then swirl, lift, push and swirl again until the powder has disappeared from the lid. Give the brush a tap on the side of the lid to get rid of any excess powder.  The idea is not to have any sitting on the surface of the brush but pushed into the bristles.

Start applying by gently buffing the powder into your skin in small circular movements. You’ll be surprised at how far a small amount will go. Keep buffing until you have applied the powder to your whole face. I start in the center of my face and work out.
If you want to go over your face again because you feel that it needs a little extra, no problem. Just repeat the whole process.

Complementary COLORS for your eyes

Complementary Colors in makeup will make your eyes pop! All colors can evoke certain emotions or feelings and can be used as a form of self expression, especially with cosmetics. Although there are a dizzying array of eye shadow colors that can be customized, choose one that will complement the color of your eyes. Wearing a shadow color that is opposite (complementary) of your eye color will make your eyes pop. If you do not have a color wheel on hand, here is a quick tip list.

GREEN EYES:
Plums, violets and various shades of purple will really make
green eyes stand out. Sepia, rust, copper and deep green are also
complementary. Avoid silver, blues, whites and pastels as they can make eyes
look washed out.

BROWN EYES:

Brown eyes are the easiest to complement as they look great in
all shades of bright colors. Teal, green, purple and pink will really make them pop, as well as bronze, peach, green, and navy.

HAZEL EYES:

Gray, burgundy and deep purple best complement hazel eyes
and will bring out the gold flecks in hazel eyes. A bright green will enhance
the green flecks in hazel eyes.

BLUE EYES:

Since blue is naturally cool, warm shades of gold, bronze, copper,
terra cotta, peach or light orange are the best complimentary colors to
make blue eyes pop. Browns with purple, slate and silvery blue are cooler
colors that are complementary and will also enhance blue eyes.
