MINERAL MAKEUP IS VERY DIFFERENT THAN TRADITIONAL MAKEUP AND AS SUCH, NEEDS TO BE APPLIED USING A DIFFERENT KIND OF TECHNIQUE.
PREPARING FOR APPLICATION
To start, you may want to start off with a freshly cleansed and toned face, (some people prefer to use our Pore Reducing Toner in place of their regular toner.) following up with your favorite Moisturizer. Our new Organic Silk Primer is a very HOT product right now as it is very good for rejuvenating your complexion like a daily supplement. It has combined hydrolyzed silk and rich organic essential oils to help prepare your skin for a flawless makeup application. If you have trouble wearing moisturizers or have troubled skin, we definitely recommend our "Organic Acne Skin Care System" designed specifically for people with Sensitive or Acenic Skin, but it is gentle enough for any skin type. Both our Pore Reducing Toner and our Daily Mosturizer contains DMAE an amazing nutrient that extends the life of cells and inhibits the cross linking of proteins giving the skin a tone, firm youthful appearance and MSM which is especially helpful at soothing and calming irritated and inflamed skin.
Please know that when using Mineral Makeup, it is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT to wait until after your moisturizer has been completely absorbed into your skin before applying your Mineral Makeup. About 10 minutes should be sufficient.
Next you want to make sure to use good quality Mineral Makeup Brushes that are specifically designed to use with Mineral Makeup for your best application results.
One Main thing to remember when your first learning to apply our Mineral Makeup is that a very small amount will go a long way. The Key is to start by using a small amount of minerals and apply in very sheer layers until you have reached your desired coverage. It is much easier to add layers than it is to take them off.
TAP, TWIRL, TAP AND BRUSH TECHNIQUE INSTRUCTIONS (TTT&B)
1. Tap a small amount of Tru Minerals into the lid. Twirl with the Flawless Face Brush (for lighter coverage) or a Plush Kabuki Brush (for more coverage) until the Minerals are tucked into the bristles.
2. Tap the bottom of the handle with the brush head facing upward on the side of the lid or foundation container to tap off any excess Minerals. There should be no visible product on the outside of the brush.
3. Brush onto skin in a swirling, circular motion, starting on the inside of your face near your the side of your nose. Then gently but firmly buff around the remainder of your face, working your way to the cheeks to the hairline and down your neckline then finish up with your forehead and nose areas. TTT&B until you're satisfied with the coverage. Remember, just a tiny amount goes a long way. You can always increase coverage by adding additional layers.
