Mineral Goddess Make-up Application Tips
1. Mineral Goddess Foundation Primer
Apply Mineral Goddess Foundation Primer evenly to the face. Let the primer dry
2. Applying Mineral Goddess Foundation.
Tap kabuki or preferred Brush into the lid of your Mineral Foundation, remove and tap or shake your brush back into the lid to remove excess powder. Brush and blend over the face evenly. Two fine coats are always better than one thick one. Then with a stippling, pressing motion with finger tips, sponge or a powder puff blend into the face. If you notice red under the bottom lash line or an area on the face that needs more concealing press some more loose mineral foundation into the area with a sponge or concealer brush, then blend into the skin.
Wet application. If you prefer to use a fluid foundation you may mix the mineral powder with moisturiser and apply with a sponge. Blend and press into the skin. For a heavier coverage, lightly dust loose mineral foundation over the top. When you mix your foundation with moisturiser the consistency will be the same as a traditional fluid foundation.
Use Kylie’s Professional Mineral cream concealer to cover blemishes, or mix loose mineral foundation with moisturiser to make a paste. Then apply with a concealer brush or pat loose mineral foundation into the problem area with a dry concealer Brush. Dust loose mineral Foundation over the rest of the face, blending over the concealed areas. Once your foundation application is complete you may spray your face with a refreshing rose water or hydrating facial spray throughout the day and not harm your make-up.
4. Setting Powder
If excess shine is apparent or you will be having photo’s taken, dust setting powder over the face and blend into the face with a kabuki brush or pat with a powder puff. Setting Powder may also be used under Mineral foundation to minimise excess shine.
5. Contour face
Use mineral foundation 3 to 5 shades darker. Or use Mineral Eyeshadow in Bark or Coffee Bean. To bring out cheek bones, dust darker foundation along the hollow from the center of the ear towards the mouth, stopping at the center of the eye. If you suck your cheeks in you can see this hollow easier. You need to make sure you cannot see where this shading starts or finishes. If the face is round you may blend along temples, dust under the chin or along jowl areas. If the nose is wide, dust along each side of the ridge of the nose. If a protruding lump is present on the nose dust over the lump. If a protruding forehead is present dust darker Mineral Foundation on the highest part. Hide the features that are not so desirable.
Highlight with lighter colours, the features you would like to stand out like cheekbones and brow bones .This will create a lifting effect. If a wide flat nose apparent highlight a slim line along to ridge of the nose. For a fashion look you may like to highlight cheek bones with a shimmery powder or a light creamy lip colour. You can blend a small amount along cheek bones and brow bones. Always blend well.
Use Mineral powder blush, Mineral eye shadow or Mineral Lipstick. Lightly blend on apples of the cheeks in a circular outward and upward motion, the (Shape of a "C”) Blend well.
8. Eye shadow
Remember to tap your brush into the lid before applying your Mineral eye shadow. A Small amount goes along way.
To highlight blend a pale or soft colour to cover the whole eye lid, this will open the eye out. If doing a, ‘fashion look’ blend only over the eye lid, stopping at the crease and blend along brow bone or only on brow bone and on the inside corner of the eye.
Use a Medium to deeper tone Mineral Eye Shadow or Bronzer blending the colour into the crease of the eye. Use short stokes pressing shadow in with your brush. This sometimes will be the main colour of the design. Use a C shape with the shadow. You can go along the whole crease for fashion looks or for larger eyes. With smaller eyes stop your C halfway across the crease. Droopy eyelids will benefit from a matt shade in this area. Colour may be blended into outer half and also to the middle of the eyelid for fashion looks or subtly blended up just onto the brow bone, keeping to the outer ¼ of the eye. This will help lift the eyes. Blend the edges of your shadow. Use light feathery c strokes.
Outer corners. Use a Darker tone of Mineral Eye shadow. Blending a contour of colour into the crease & slightly blend just onto the eye bone to give depth to the eye shape. Press shadow in with your bush. Use small short stokes. Softly blend shadow. Remember smaller eyes are best with depth kept to the outer ¼ section of eyelid. Use a smaller (c) first, you can always add more later, or you may blend a tiny amount halfway along top lash line blending a little more at outside corners.
Smokey eye looks can use the same dark contour colour, under the bottom eye lashes to give definition and softness to the eye. You can also use your medium-tone colour here for a fashion look. For a dramatic effect blend more medium or darker colours 1\2 to 3\4 of the way across the eyelid stopping at the crease.
