mineral powder + moisturizer = fast makeup application

Recommended Posts

I'm sure there's a post about this somewhere lurking on the Org but my search doesn't work-never has.

Anyway..I put a glob of my moisturizer (Complex 15) on my palm then sprinkle some mineral basics on it, mix it up and apply it to my face like I normally would. I can't tell you how fast/easy/even this has become.

I have tried all sort of kabuki brushes and they all either irritaed or flaked my face so as a last resort I tried this method.

Anyone else apply their mineral makeup this way?

I do this sometimes. It does make it fast and easy. If I'm going to be hanging out or at a friend's house this works perfect. I have also put my minerals in clear mascara and clear fingernail polish! It's really nice. I have the Aubrey Nicole Tropical eye shadow and it's really pretty in nail polish! And I used the smokey charcoal in my clear mascara. Pretty cool and a cheap too. It only takes a little.

yea, i do the same. i found it's more natural looking than using a brush. and it looks less "powder-y".

I do that too!!

It's fast and easy! I use EDM minerals a bit of that and two pumps of FOTE Aloe Vera Gel and smooth it all over. Works Great. Doesn't give alot of coverage but it does even out my skin tone and all. If I want full coverage I do this method first and wait till the gel absorbs onto my skin and then start sweeping on foundation!

I know you say a "little" powder... but how much? Like a normal application of mineral makeup, or less?

I use about the same amount as I would for normal application..maybe a tiny bit more.l

Thanks Ami!!! I've been wanting to try the minerals + mosturizer for a long time due to the dryness of retinoids... yay!

I've tried this approach twice and I can't get it to work. :(

However, today I experimented with applying the minerals with a slightly wet brush and it gave heavier, but really nice coverage. (I use EDM intensive and semi-matte)
