    Applying Foundation / Finishing Powder: The general rule of thumb
    is that if a mineral makeup contains bismuth oxychloride,
    you’ll likely have to buff it in well, for the makeup to look its best.
    Generally a kabuki brush is used with this technique.

    Fluffy Brushes: Using a fluffy face brush is the other popular way
    to apply mineral makeup.
    A nice fluffy brush is just the ticket since a little makeup goes a long way.
    Whether you choose synthetic or animal hair brushes is up to you.
    Both can be equally good, depending on the quality.

    The same basic rules apply as with the kabuki:
    swirl your brush in the makeup, tap off the excess and the brush
    in a downward motion over your face. No need to buff.
    If you’d like more coverage, just repeat the steps again.


    Applying Foundation Wet: There are a couple of ways to do it.

    • With A Brush: Mix your foundation and some water/moisturizer/lotion, etc.
    Then dip your brush in it and apply in a downward motion.
    It will dry to a soft powder.

    • With A Puff/Sponge: You can either dampen your puff or sponge
    and dip it into your foundation and apply in a downward motion;
    or mix the foundation with water/moisturizer/lotion and apply with a sponge.
    It will dry to a soft powder.

    Finally, you can apply your foundation dry, then mist with a hydrosol
    or something similar and either use a brush or a sponge
    to smooth the moisture into the powder.
    Make sure to use a downward motion.
    Some women even like to layer their makeup this way.

    Why the downward motion? Your pores and facial fuzz lay that way naturally.
    When you smooth your makeup that direction it makes a more “natural” look.

    Other Facial Applications - For your other color cosmetics applied to face,
    here are the general outlines:

    Concealer: Using a taklon concealer brush or an all-over eyeshadow brush,
    dip it into the concealer or foundation you’re using, tap off most of the excess
    and apply directly to the area you want to conceal.
    Blend well. If you’re using an all over concealer, complexion enhancer,
    finishing powder, etc. use a fluffy face brush and swirl, tap and brush
    lightly in a downward motion.

    Eyeshadow/Eyeliner Application: You can apply mineral makeup wet or dry.
    Applying it wet is called “foiling” and makes the colors more bold and can even
    change them slightly in some cases. For regular application, simply dip the brush
    into the color, tap off the excess and apply like you normally would.

    For foiling, mix some minerals with water, hydrosol, eye primer, etc.
    until a creamy consistency. Then apply as you normally would.
    When dry you can buff with a dry brush to blend
    (but this may cause some of the mica to come away).

    The foiling method works very well for eye lining.
    Colors that might be too bold to wear on your eye make great liner colors.
    Foiling them will help them last longer and show up better.

    These basic tips should help you apply mineral make up like a professional.
