Mineral Makeovers, Tips & Tricks

Watch and Lisa and Lynn get makeovers with mineral makeup. It looks just as good as the popular makeup brands of today and it is much better for you and your skin!

11 Top Mineral Makeup Tips & Tricks

  1. Mineral makeup is free of parabens (which can disrupt hormones), preservatives, chemical dyes, and fragrances.
  2. Typically oil free, mineral makeup won't aggravate acne-prone skin.
  3. Containing titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, mineral makeup offers enough sun protection for errands (but not a day at the beach).
  4. Always allow moisturizer to dry before applying mineral makeup.
  5. When you're using loose powders, always tap excess powder off your brushes.
  6. Mineral makeup is very concentrated. Apply foundation in thin layers, using a brush and going in circles. A little goes a long way. Start with a thin layer and see if it offers the coverage you want. If not, apply another thin layer and continue in this manner until you get the look you want.
  7. Green eyes? Try purple eyeshadow and brown eyeliner to make eyes pop.
  8. Blue eyes? Brown shades work well for a neutral daytime look. Switch to purple shades for special occasions or nights on the town.
  9. Brown eyes? Try chocolates and bronzes as well as teal, blue, and purple!
  10. To make eyes seem bigger, use a lighter shade on the inner eyelid, and a darker one on the outer lid and crease.
  11. Don't encircle your eye with eyeliner; it can make your eyes look smaller. For a natural look, start eyeliner halfway along upper eyelid to open up your eyes.
