POWDERY OR MASK LIKE IN APPEARANCE?
Usually caused by over-application or the shade you've chosen is too light
Try custom blending two shades of mineral foundation together, use a darker level or utilise a softer, less dense brush, (our gold Kabuki) to refine your application.
DRYING AND FLAKY AND UNEVEN COVERAGE?
The skin is too dry and needs exfoliation and moisturising.
Firstly, invest in our natural organic facial serum, Perfect Prep Skin Radiance Serum. Use night and morning. For extremely dry skin, try mixing a bit of mineral foundation powder with it to create a liquid foundation and apply with a sponge or brush and then smooth and blend with your finger.
Exfoliate to smooth the skin's surface, Porridge oats soaked in warm water for 10 minutes make a great natural facial exfoliator. Then finish with our serum. Wait another 10 mins for perfect absorption, before applying your minerals makeup.
PORES APPEAR LARGER OR POWDER IS LAYING IN FINE LINES?
Over-application and/or incorrect application technique.
To correct: Make sure you are buffing correctly to finish the application. Our Pink buffing Kabuki is a very dense brush, designed to help you work the mineral foundation into a soft dewy finish, it will correct overloaded areas and ensure an even result.
If the skin feels tight and dry use our Perfect Prep Skin Radiance Serum - wait 10 mins then apply your minerals. you will see a marked improvement.
Try damp brush application technique too, to help conceal pores, followed by a light application of foundation with the Buffing Kabuki to finish.
SHINY OR OILY APPEARANCE?
Moisturiser too heavy or over-application. Allow lots of time for your moisturiser to be absorbed into the skin and try the Matte Primer before going in with your mineral makeup.
If too much serum or moisturiser has been applied, then tissue off the excess. Puddles of moisture on the skin will grab minerals and sit unevenly.
STREAKY, BLOTCHY OR UNEVEN APPEARANCE?
Probably too much foundation, or your moisturiser has not completely penetrated into your skin. - give it more time.
You may not be buffing / blending enough. Is your brush in need of a wash? An application of Primer before foundation will help here to.
Is your brush overloaded? It's not always necessary to reload with more product - sometimes there is enough already in your brush.
Try our Gold Kabuki - designed with fine soft fibres, it a lighter softer type of kabuki - perfect for our Illuminators, Blushers and Bronzers
