Mineral Makeup Secrets
Foundation full coverage effects are those that help you get the most from using foundation products to even out your skin. Makeup artists know how to mix makeup and layer it to diminish even the most bothersome skin problems. Their techniques are actually very simple. This makeup tutorial explains how to take mineral makeup and turn it into a full coverage foundation. Your skin will look perfect!
Mineral Foundation Makeup Tips
Foundation full coverage application is possible using mineral makeup foundation, even though mineral foundation was formulated to be a sheer product that would even out complexions. There’s more than just one way to apply mineral foundation and layering it can give you more cover makeup options. Here are several ways to apply this product.
- Dab it on with your finger rather than using a brush to spot conceal.
- Mist a brush and then pick up your product and lightly dab onto your skin or do the same and apply it with a foundation brush.
- Layer the product over another product.
The third option is one that works well for either a large area or your whole face and the one that makeup artists really love, so this is the one I’m going to share with you. It has the advantage of using a minimal amount of makeup and still get a nice natural look. Try out the technique and then I’ll share with you a way to really get opaque coverage in the needed areas.
Makeup You Need:
In order to try it you’ll need a mineral makeup foundation that has more pigment to it to do a foundation full coverage technique. There’s a cheap mineral makeup product that works great for this technique. It’s less than five dollars. Try N.Y.C. Naturals Smoother Mineral Foundation Powder. It works for this if you’re on a budget and it doesn’t contain talc. You can get it at Walmart.
Full Coverage Mineral Makeup Tips
1. First you need to wash your face and pat dry.
2. Apply one coat of a tinted moisturizer foundation. You can even get the one that is oil-free. This is the base tint and it will blend into your skin. Think of it almost as sheer layer of skin coloring. It won’t be enough coverage because tinted moisturizer is meant to be sheer. That’s why you’ll want to do this next step.
3. Take a good makeup brush – I prefer a flat brush – and apply one coat of your mineral foundation. Buff the minerals on your skin in a circular motion to completely blend the product.
You’ll see while buffing that the skin imperfections seem to disappear. Now, it’s time to make it look natural.
One of the best makeup tips for working with a full coverage foundation makeup of any type is to bring back the life to your skin. This simply means to add color back – unless of course you’re doing vampire makeup. So, grab your blush and bronzer and lightly sweep on a beautiful blush color to make your complexion look healthy.
Opaque Coverage: What do you do if you need even more coverage? This is when you take your brush and mist it with a little water. Then dip it in the mineral makeup and tap it over the areas that need it. It’s just for spot concealing, but it will give you coverage without having to do your whole face.
Foundation full coverage makeup tips are those that allow you to get the most from your makeup and once you try this technique, you might find that you can even stop wearing creamy full coverage makeup products and just layer your sheer minerals. Try it!
