Less is more is the principle that is being implemented with this kind of makeup. It may cost much more than the regular types of cosmetics. But because you don't need to apply a lot on the course of your routine, you will be able to save up the makeup as well as the money you have spent on it in the long run.
Here are some techniques that you can follow, especially if you are only trying it out. Through this, there will be lesser chances for you to waste the cosmetics while utilizing them on yourself the best you can.
1. You must first start with the application of your foundation. For makeup that contains minerals, you have to buy a specific kind of brush to be able to apply it on your face. The brush is usually large and has rounded edge. This will suffice for usual applications. If the problem area that has to be concealed is major, you better rely on a sponge for such purpose.
If you have dry skin, you can use a moisturizer to even out your makeup. Whereas if you have oily skin, you can use some finishing powder after you have applied your makeup.
2. After the foundation, the second thing that you have to take note regarding the mineral makeup application technique is to apply a blush-on for a more defined and natural look. You must use a brush with more narrow edges for this purpose. Apply the blush with an upward stroke and create a letter C on your cheekbones.
