Mineral/ Loose Powder Foundation

Recommended Skin Type: Combination to oily skin

A mineral or a loose powder foundation is perfect if you battle with sensitive skin. They are a lighter alternative to liquid formulations and are typically free of harsh ingredients and oils so they won’t break you out or aggravate your acne. Your mineral powder foundation is best applied with a kabuki brush because it’s a lot easier to pick up the product and blend it into your skin using one. You build up coverage and still end up with a natural-looking finish.

You can also try using a rounded foundation brush or a fluffy powder brush – these give you a more sheer and natural coverage.

Step 1: Prep Your Face

First and foremost, cleanse, tone and moisturize your face before you apply any makeup. Make sure your moisturizer has absorbed well into the skin. Don’t forget to prime!

Step 2: Pick Up The Right Amount Of Product

Tap a little bit of foundation on the lid of the product and swirl your brush around the cap. You need very little to begin with – so tap off the excess as you can always come back for more.
