Prepare Your Skin
It is necessary for you to prepare your skin for application. First cleanse your face with a foaming cleanser and apply a good moisturizer (it is also necessary to apply a lip balm for moisturing lips and avoid getting burnt).
Pure mineral makeup should be applied in a way that it covers all the skin areas, the eyes, lips, and cheek-bones. To assure full coverage, it is recommended to pat on powder to get a smooth finish.
For proper application, you need to make sure that the brush you use has sharp bristles and a soft fleshy implement. The bristles should be positioned facing up towards the kidneys.
You can also use a kabuki brush or a large, soft and fluff brush for blending. The fluff brush has a longer handle and is perfect for applying the foundation in the nose, chin, cheeks, and forehead areas.
For even and natural application, it is important to position the brush hairs along the natural contour of the face. The bone structure of the face will be furtherlined and the colors will be accentuated more by these brushes.
Different Types of Brushes
Different types of brushes are used for different purposes. Available brushes include the paddle brush, which was introduced in the early days of mineral make-up and is now a classic; cushion brush, which is soft and has large bristles that are angled at the base of the skin to lift up the minerals for a smooth facial application; wire brush, which is short and round; buffer brush, which is used to apply concealer or cream; and angled bristle brush or donkey hair brush for shape.
The importance of choosing the right brushes cannot be stressed enough. Either buy them at a reasonable discount price or in bulk to get the best quality, or worse, get them as gifts.
