Quick Tips for Mineral Makeup

June 20, 2013

During the summer months, wearing liquid foundation, even the lightest formulations, can become a battle as you fight makeup meltdown. Luckily, mineral foundation is here to save the day! We’ve rounded up some quick tips for wearing these mineral powders which come loose and pressed:

- Mineral powder offers a natural sheer to medium coverage–this is a must for summer months.
- Most minerals reflect light, so whether you wear it alone or dusted over your own foundation, your skin will glow.
- Wear a BB cream or tinted moisturizer and press the mineral powder into the areas of your face that tend to look shiny…your skin will look flawless!
- Use a quality makeup brush when applying mineral makeup–this is key! A brush with a large, flat surface is best like the BABE Beauty Bar Powder Brush 01.
