Nowadays women are very conscious about their appearance and they would also prefer to retain their beauty. Hence, women while choosing makeup products should select products that do not contain chemicals that may harm their skin on continuous usage. Bare minerals makeup is one such product that does not contain any chemicals and is made up of minerals obtained directly from the earth.The minerals are then ground to make fine powders, which when applied on the skin provides an exclusive look. Moreover, it is a very light makeup and won’t clog the pores, thereby reducing the chances of developing pimples. The most attractive part of bare minerals makeup is that it does not contain any oils, preservatives, fragrance, talc etc. and even function as natural UV rays screening agent. By slightly altering the makeup application technique you can create an entirely different look.
The most vital thing for creating a dashing appearance is the use of proper brush. Bare minerals makeup requires a natural bristle, high quality brush, which can distribute the bare minerals evenly on the skin. It’s very important to keep the brush in good condition as there are chances for the skin oil to get into the brush and make the makeup sticky and clumpy. Hence, soak the brush in warm soapy water in every two weeks for fifteen minutes and thereafter remove the soap under clean running water.
How To Apply Bare Minerals
Those who have small skin pores can apply mineral makeup directly on the skin, but for those who have large skin pores, it’s better to provide a coating of makeup primer called bare vitamins as a base. This fills in the wrinkles and pores and provides a smooth finish for the makeup. The appearance of mineral makeup depends up on the shade of bare minerals that you have chosen. If you didn’t get the ideal color, try to mix different shades to get the color that suits you the best. Test the makeup on your jawline and check whether the makeup blends seamlessly into the skin and there is no difference between the jawline and neck color. Shake the jar containing mineral makeup and remove the lid carefully. The residue that is left on the lid can be used for applying the makeup. Dip the brush in that residue and tap off the excess powder; else the final makeup looks streaked and cakey.
Start applying the makeup from the jawline and progress towards the face with circular motions. Once you cover the entire area check whether you have got the expected coverage, if not slowly apply more powder till you get the desired result. Now apply a blush that is suitable to your skin with a separate brush. Eye shadow can be applied by combining three complimentary shades of a particular basic color. Use separate brush for applying eye shadow also. Then use a dark colored eye liner to line the eyes. If you want to soften the eye liner, use the middle shade of the eye shadow. After applying the bare mineral makeup foundation you can spray a fine mist of rose water or water on the skin, as it helps to settle the makeup and the make it more natural. This is very ideal makeup that even people with sensitive skin can use.
