Loose Mineral Foundations

Recommended tools: Kabuki brush, flat-top buffer and/or sponge (flocked or other); concealer brush for foundations, veils and concealers; setting and/or hydrating mist

*Dry Method

Tap a small amount of product onto a flat surface, such as a jar lid or small dish. Firmly press and swirl your brush or sponge into the powder, working in the minerals. Tap excess powder back into the dish. You should not see a lot of powder on the brush head.

Starting at outermost face, working inward, lightly buff the minerals onto the face (and neck, if desired). Coverage will begin to "meld" into the skin. Repeat application until the desired look/coverage is achieved (typically, 1-3 layers). Spritz face with choice of setting or hydrating mist.

*Concealer

Recommended tools: Concealer or large synthetic foundation brush; setting and/or hydrating mist

Tap a bit of foundation and/or powder concealer product/s onto flat surface or dish. For optimal results and performance, use a concealer brush. Firmly dip the brush into the powder and tap off the excess. Use the concealer brush to go back over and "paint" areas where concealing is needed (eye area, nose, blemishes, etc.) until desired coverage is achieved. Spritz face with choice of setting or hydrating mist.

*Wet Method

Recommended tools: Kabuki brush, flat-top buffer and/or sponge (flocked or other); concealer brush; setting and/or hydrating mist

Add 3-4 sprays of setting or hydrating mist into a small dish. Tap in a small amount of loose mineral foundation to achieve a watercolor consistency, adding more setting or hydrating mist as needed. Spray your brush or sponge with setting and/or hydrating mist, dip into the mixture and apply to face, working from outermost face inward. If using a sponge, pat the minerals onto face using a "stippling" motion. If using a brush, apply in circular motions. 1-2 layers are typical.

Concealer

Recommended tools: Concealer brush or large badger foundation brush; setting and/or hydrating mist

Add 1-2 sprays of setting or hydrating mist to dish. Tap in a small amount of foundation or concealer product/s. Spray brush with setting and/or hydrating mist and dip into the mixture. Use the concealer brush to go back over and "paint" areas where concealing is needed (eye area, nose, blemishes, etc.) until desired coverage is achieved.

Mineral Veil/Finish Powders

Recommended tools: Synthetic powder brush, short-handle flat-top brush, kabuki or flocked sponge

Multi-use product: SPF, primer, shine control, finisher, hides pores, blurs fine lines, mutes sharp edges, provides instant photogenic, soft-focus look. Can be worn alone for SPF and a natural look.

As primer: Tap out veil/finisher of choice onto lid or small dish. Dip brush or sponge into the powder and tap off the excess. Apply to face, concentrating on areas of shine, pores, fine lines. Follow with foundation application of choice.

As finisher: Reduces shine, softens and sheers the look and edges of mineral blushes and eye colors, pulls your total look together. Depending on product choice, can impart a matte or illuminating finish.

Loose Mineral Blushers/Bronzers

Recommended tools: Short-handle flat-top, kabuki, blush or powder brush

Dry method

Tap a small amount of blush or bronzer into a lid or small dish. Dip your brush into the powder and tap off the excess. Apply to cheeks in a "pork chop" shape, just under the eyes, but not below the bottom of the nose. After applying to cheeks, take a small amount of desired product and lightly dust over face on areas the sun would hit naturally, in a "3" shape on both sides of the face. If you get too much, use veil/finisher to mute and soften the edges.

Damp method

Recommended tools: Short-handle flat-top, kabuki, blush or powder brush; setting and/or hydrating mist

Tap a small amount (only a few grains are needed with this method) of blush or bronzer into a lid or small dish. Spray your brush 1-2 times with setting and/or hydrating mist. Dip your brush into the powder and tap off the excess. Apply to cheeks in a "pork chop" shape, just under the eyes, but not below the bottom of the nose. After applying to cheeks, take a small amount of desired product and lightly dust over face on areas the sun would hit naturally, in a "3" shape on both sides of the face. If you get too much, use veil/finisher to mute and soften the edges.

Loose Mineral Eye Shadow

Recommended tools: Chisel brush, deluxe angle fluff brush, liner brush; primer product; liner sealant; pencil

Apply primer product of choice, if using, waiting a moment for it to set. Tap small amount of eye color into lid or small dish. Dip brush into the powder, tap off excess. Apply loose mineral shadows by patting into place, rather than swiping. Blend well. Line eyes using mineral pencil or by using a darker eye color dry or wet with liner sealant on a fine brush. Allow to dry before applying other products, such as mascara or setting and/or hydrating mist.

Rested Multi-Purpose Loose Mineral Powder/Bisque Concealer

Recommended tools: Concealer or foundation brush, baby kabuki, powder brush

Multi-use product! Can be used as concealer, foundation, orbital eye-area brightener, all-over eye color.

Tap out a small amount of product onto a flat surface, such as a jar lid or small dish. Dip in brush of choice, tap off excess and apply lightly to orbital eye area or on lid as an eye brightener.

Bright Eyed Multi-Purpose Loose Mineral Powder

Recommended tool:Concealer or foundation brush, sponge.

Multi-use product!

Can be used alone or with Bisque to adjust the tone of your foundation and/or concealer. Corrects redness, dark areas, instant eye brightener, concealer.

This product is VERY concentrated and appearance in the bag/jar is deceiving.

Tap out a very small amount (less than 1/2 a pea; if you see yellow on the skin, too much has been used) on a flat surface, such as a jar lid or small dish. Firmly swirl your brush into the powder, tap off excess. Lightly sweep product onto the eyelids and orbital area, concentrating on areas of redness and/or darkness. Apply to any areas that need brightening, areas of redness or sun damage.
