Foundation is the most important thing to put on your face before applying lipstick or any other cosmetic. If you want to look good using mineral makeup foundation, here are the steps that you should follow.
First, get the best shade of mineral makeup foundation there is in the store. To do that, you have to choose the color that matches the color of your skin. Just to give you an idea, some brands classify their shades by fair, fair/light, light, light/medium, light medium/medium, medium, medium deep and deep.
Once you bring it home, go to the bathroom and then clean your face thoroughly using either soap or a facial cleanser. After washing, pat yourself dry with a soft towel.
Now comes the fun part. Open the mineral makeup foundation and before dipping it using your finger or a brush, tap the side of the container first. Right after, dip in the brush, swirl it a bit and then tap it on the side to remove any excess powder.
With a sufficient amount of powder in the brush, this is when you buff the mineral makeup into your skin. Do this gently in circular motions up and down your face. Put more attention under the eyes because this spot is often overlooked and when you are done, apply other makeup products so you add the finishing touches to your face.
If you are going to use some eye shadow, dip the brush into the mineral makeup powder then sweep this onto the eye from the base of the eyelashes to just beneath the brow.
You can also do the same if you are going to put on lipstick by dipping the lip brush into the powder to give a natural look when you finish.
