For anyone who is new to mineral makeup (maybe you found your first set hidden under your Christmas tree) here is a brief explanation of how to apply this unique beauty treat. :)

Applying Affordable Mineral Makeup:
If your container has shrink wrap on it, tap on lid before opening to get minerals down so when you open jar they don't go everywhere. If it has a seal over sifter section, remove this first otherwise minerals will not come out.

NOTE: Brushes may shed during usage, this is normal and will stop after some usage.

Place the bristles of your brush against the holes in the top of the shaker jar and invert the jar, adding minerals to your brush. Revert the jar to its upright position and remove the brush from the holes, tap the brush against a hard surface to nestle the minerals within the brush head. Or tap a small amount of minerals into the jar’s lid and swirl the brush into it, then tap the end of the brush onto the hard surface to embed the minerals.

To apply the minerals, start at the hairline and swirl onto your face in downward motions over your cheekbones and towards the nose. Start with a little and use more as needed, a little goes a long way so don't go crazy with the minerals.

Blemishes are a snap to hide, using a concealer brush, apply a small amount directly to the area and blend well.

Minerals can be used dry or wet.
If you're used to your liquid foundation and just can't give it up you can use affordable mineral makeup. Just add a few drops of water to the foundation in the lid of the sifter jar and mix until you've reached your desired consistency. You can apply with either a sponge or brush. Then apply the same way as mentioned above.

If you have dry or 'older' skin, try misting it before applying foundation and apply in downward motion. Then when the foundation is dry complete applying your blush, multipurpose, eyeshadow, veil.
Additionally if you want to set the makeup, mist your face to set it when completed.

If your foundation appears pasty, here are a few possibilities:
1. The brush.
The wrong brush can really make a difference in mineral makeup and not having the right kind will not give you proper application nor satisfaction with the products! Only Kabuki style brushes will give you the look you are trying for. Our kabukis are soft and well-made, applying the minerals with a light touch that looks and feels natural.

2. Too much product on the brush:
Mineral makeup is concentrated color, a little can go a long way so start slowly and work your way to perfect in layers, only using it where its needed.

3. The wrong shade:
Caught between a pink and a yellow? Minerals make it easy to blend shades to create your perfect skin tone, remember to blend well down your neck!

Mineral Veil Powders:
If you wear:
1, 3 or 7, choose the Petal Mineral Veil to complement your soft glow. If you find it too rosy, balance with a more yellow shade such as Angel.

If you wear:
10 then Tawny, the medium yellow setting powder would be the best choice.

Multi-Purpose Mineral Powders:
Note: blue and green shades are regulated to only be used on the eye area.

Create your own eye shadows using minerals by applying with an eye shadow brush! To use as a liner, wet a eye liner brush with water and dip into a multi-purpose mineral, blending the proper shade on the back of your hand. Then apply under and over your lashes for a dramatic look.

Use as a blush! Apply sparingly along the apples of your cheeks for a natural glow.

Lip Color: Simply dip your lip brush into clear lip gloss and dab into the mineral pot and apply for fabulous, one-of-a-kind shades.

Nail Polish: Because our pigment contains no dye, you do not need to apply a base coat. Simply use clear nail polish and dip the brush into the desired color and paint onto nails. For a darker color, use more powder. You can also mix our pigments into colored nail polish to change its tint.

Body Shimmer/Highlighter: dab our shimmers onto your cheekbones, shoulders, etc to give an extra shine.
