How to Apply Mineral Powder Foundation

Mineral Foundations can be tricky sometimes, especially if you have dry skin or large open pores but when applied correctly mineral foundation powders have amazing coverage, will feel beautiful and light on the skin and most importantly will let your skin breathe and will not block your pores.

How to give your Foundation a Flawless Finish.

How to give your Foundation a Flawless Finish.

I often get asked.......... How do I get flawless looking foundation? Lets face it most of us are wearing foundation because we are trying to hide some sort of skin concern, such as large pores (yep this one is me), acne, pigmentation, wrinkles or fine lines.   Being a make up artist and applying foundation to so many different faces, there is one little trick that seems to work for everyone.  I apply a liquid foundation in dots over the face, then take a short bristle contouring brush and blend out the foundation in quick small circular motions.  Make sure...
