Mineral Foundation

Applying mineral foundation with a damp brush

This is a good application technique for drier skin, more mature skin, or if you want to achieve a heavier coverage with your mineral foundation. Evenly damp the bristles of your Kabuki brush with water and then swirl the damp brush in your dish containing a small amount of mineral foundation. Swirl the brush over your face in a circular motion and blend the foundation with your fingers for a smooth finish and to remove any visible brush strokes. This technique is a great way to cover blemishes too.

Applying mineral foundation with a dry brush

Sprinkle a small amount of foundation powder into a small dish or saucer, then, using a gentle circular motion, work this gently into your Kabuki brush. Tap the brush lightly against the dish to remove excess minerals, or turn the brush so that the hairs are facing up and tap the base of the brush lightly on a hard surface to settle the minerals into the brush. Apply the minerals to your face using a gentle circular motion and build up coverage gradually with light layers.

Mineral Finishing Powder

Our finishing powders are super silky and light and can be brushed on with a large fluffy brush over the top of your foundation to achieve a lovely soft appearance. Again, as they only gradually absorb oil, they are good eye shadow bases and good for people with dry skin as they won’t strip your skin of moisture.

Mineral Eyeshadow

Apply your mineral eyeshadow with a damp brush to bring out the shimmer and to turn them into eyeliners!

Triple Use Balms

Use on your lips just like any other lipstick. These natural balms are so good you can even use them as cream blush – just dab a bit on the apple of your cheek and blend with your finger or eye pigments!

Healing Mineral Concealer

Our concealers are very versatile and can be applied under, over or mixed with our mineral foundation. They can be brushed on dry or applied with a damp sponge or brush for completely opaque, heavy coverage. We find that they make great eye shadow bases too as they absorb oil and so don’t let your eyeshadows slip. To cover blemishes we recommend applying the mineral concealer with a small firm damp brush and then blend with your finger.
