How to use Mineral Makeup to Accentuate Your Beauty

Hey, If You Luv Makeup & Beauty readers! Get excited! To get mineral makeup to accentuate your beauty, pick a shade of mineral makeup that matches your skin tone. With mineral makeup, you’re guaranteed a match because you have the ability to blend shades in order to get your perfect shade.

Vary your application technique based on the amount of coverage you want. Mineral makeup is very buildable. You can go from sheer cover to full coverage just by altering the way in which you apply your makeup. For full coverage, apply mineral makeup with a kabuki brush.

If you’re looking for a sheerer look, try using a skunk brush. Regardless of what brush you use, always apply your mineral makeup in thin layers. If you want more coverage, add more layers, and if you want lighter coverage, keep layers to a minimum.

Until next time...Remember: Less is more.

Great Day! If You Luv Makeup & Beauty Readers...According to Beauty and Wellness Dayle Haddon the following products women can use while they are outdoors, during exercise, at emotional occasions (weddings), and even when they swim!

Many women do not like to leave home without the extra coverage of a foundation. With water resistant and waterproof foundation products, women remain covered.

Not all women want that much coverage but don’t want to go out with a "naked" face. Clinique makes two great products, both of them with a built- in SPF 15. If you just want to go for the bare minimum, go for a waterproof concealer and just dab it around your eye area.
