Mineral makeup is very different than more traditional commercial liquid makeup and as such, it needs to be applied using a different technique. One of the main points to remember when first learning to apply mineral makeup is that a very small amount goes a very long way. The key is to start by using a very small amount of mineral and applying in very sheer layers until you reach the desired coverage. It is much easier to add layers than to take them off. It is also extremely important to wait to apply mineral makeup until your moisturizer has been completely absorbed by the skin before applying mineral makeup.
1. Using you choice of foundation color, the Erth Concealer brush, and the "Twirl, Tap, & Brush" technique described below, apply foundation in layers to problem areas of face (where you would normally use a separate concealer) to correct any skin imperfections.
2. Using your same foundation color, our highlighting brush, or the deluxe kabuki brush for increased coverage, and again the TT&B technique described below, apply your foundation starting at the outside of your face working inwards.
3. Now, using your highlighting brush use just a tiny bit of an Erth bronzer and apply lightly to areas where sun would normally hit your face, giving you a healthy glow. (chin, nose, cheeks near nose, and forehead)
4. Lastly, using either our highlighting or kabuki brush (again, depending upon coverage desired) apply Erth Moth Veil as a finishing powder. This will cut down on shine, plus help hide pores.
1. Twirl a small amount of Erth Minerals into the lid with our highlighting brush (for lighter coverage) or our deluxe synthetic kabuki brush (for more coverage) until the minerals are tucked into the bristles.
2. Tap off excess. There should be no visible product on the outside of the brush.
3. Brush onto the skin in a swirling, circular motion, starting on the outside of your face near your cheekbones. Then, buff around the remainder of the face, working your way to the cheeks, forehead, and nose. Buff until you're satisfied with the coverage. Remember, a little goes a long way. You can always increase coverage by adding additional layers.
