Mineral Makeup Tips And Tricks
Get set for one of the neatest things you can do with your cosmetics. One of the best mineral makeup tips is one that you might not have used yet – Water. Minerals and water go hand-in-hand. Why is water so important? It’s the insider secret to obtaining great coverage with a sheer makeup product. Here’s how it works.
You have two options for this makeup artist technique.
- You can use water to spray your brush with and then dip the foundation brush into your mineral makeup foundation.
- You can lightly mist your face with water and then apply the mineral cosmetic. How do you decide which method is best? By trying out both techniques. Really, it’s the only real way to do it.
You can also do a combination. For instance, you can apply your mineral foundation like you normally do – swish, tap and apply – and then mist a brush, pick up the product and use it as a spot concealer.
One of my favorite mineral makeup tips is to use it over a tinted moisturizer. The coverage is incredible and the best part is that it works for all skin types.
Mineral Eye Makeup Tips
By its very nature mineral makeup is a meant to be a sheer, but highly pigmented product. Sometimes you might find that the eyeshadow color you were hoping for doesn’t quite measure up to your expectations. Too light, perhaps? If so, the simple addition of water will intensify the product. So if you mist your brush beforehand, just like you did with the foundation, it’s almost like getting to colors for the price of one. A sheer color and an intense version of the same color.
Rock ‘n Roll Makeup Application
Need an extra boost to your mineral makeup – maximum coverage with minimum hassle? Ditch the brush and pick up a makeup sponge. They work well with mineral makeup, even though you may not have heard of using one with it. Then get ready to rock ‘n roll the brush. This is the method makeup artists prefer:
1. Take the sponge – wedge or lightly flocked – and tap down on the powdered cosmetic product.
2. “Press” the makeup on but don’t lift the sponge. Instead just slightly rock the sponge to one side and then roll it back to the other. This presses the makeup onto the skin.
3. If you find that you need even more coverage you can use the water trick with the rock ‘n roll technique.
Oops!…Did you get too much makeup on? No problem, just take a makeup brush and whisk it off.
Mineral makeup tips are perfect to get the maximum use from your favorite products. They’re very easy to do. It’s just a matter of thinking like a makeup artist and experimenting with makeup application techniques.
