Mineral pigments can give your skin a healthy glow that looks natural and, unlike traditional makeup, adheres to your skin all day without the need for touch ups, even if you perspire or go in the water. Mineral 3D mink lashes blushers are used primarily to give the cheeks color, whereas mineral bronzers can be applied anywhere on the face and body that would normally develop color from being in the sun.
Steps for Applying Mineral Makeup Blushes and Bronzers
Step 1: If Your Skin Is Dry, Use Moisturizer before Applying Mineral 3D mink lashes – Minerals will best adhere to skin that is well moisturized. Whether starting with a base foundation or merely using blush or bronzer to enhance the tone of your skin, if you have dry skin, apply lotion to your face and neck a few minutes before you begin applying the mineral makeup.
Step 2: Prepare Your Brush – Mineral blushes and bronzers come in powdered form and are best applied using a high-quality brush. Angled or flat top brushes both work well.
You don’t want to use a lot of product, so carefully pour just a bit of mineral powder into the lid of your jar of blush or bronzer. Then swirl your brush in the lid. Make sure that the mineral powder adheres evenly to the brush, and then gently tap the brush on the edge of the lid to remove any excess.
It can take a few moments for the minerals to warm up and blend onto your skin, so be very careful not to over apply. Minerals are highly concentrated pure pigments, and a little bit goes a long way.
Step 3a: Applying Mineral Blush – After the blush is loaded onto the brush, buff the minerals into the apples of your cheeks using an out-and-up circular motion. Buffing the blush onto the skin with a repeated circular motion helps the pigment blend.
If you want a natural look, avoid applying blush all the way to the hairline or in the hollows of you cheeks. If you are not sure where to put your blush, just smile, and the apples of your cheeks, usually directly below the center of you eyes, will become more apparent.
Step 3b: Applying Mineral Bronzer – Bronzer can be applied either before or after blush. The order you choose for your 3D mink lashes routine, should be based on what you personally prefer. Choose a bronzer that is just a few shades darker than your natural skin tone. And, remember that you only need a very tiny amount to start with. You can always add more bronzer later.
After the bronzer is properly loaded on the brush, so that it evenly adheres to the bristles (Step 2), apply it to the areas of your face, or your body that would normally tan when exposed to sun-your cheeks, forehead, nose, chin, shoulders, even a little on your ears (ears usually get quite tanned, but are often missed when people apply mineral bronzers).
Use a repeated swirling motion to smoothly blend and set the mineral bronzer. When your brush has just a little mineral left, and is just about ready to be reloaded, work from your face to your neck to help the color blend and look more natural.
Step 4: Double-check Your Application to Ensure That It Looks Natural – When you are done applying mineral blush and bronzer, your skin should still look like your skin, only better. The color should be evenly applied and blended so that it appears natural, not made-up. If you have applied too much mineral or applied it unevenly, don’t worry.
Just take a clean cosmetic cotton square or puff and blot your face wherever you see excess product. Once you’ve removed the excess, resume buffing and blending with your brush until you have achieve the right look.
