It's your skin.....but better!
It has a clear gel-like consistency.
Get your 'Full Flawless Face Brush' (or any dense bristled powder or kabuki brush is just as good. For example - 'Real Techniques Expert Face Brush')
TAP brush onto the side of the lid to get the excess off....
BUFF onto your face...
I like to start at the outside of my face, in small buffing movements round upto my forehead down my nose, chin and other side. I dip my brush in the lid again, you can add more foundation into the lid if you wish... SWIRL....TAP....BUFF....onto my face again.
Next any blemishes, impurities you want to make sure are covered up, you can use your concealer brush, dip into the lid and just pat onto impurities, under eye area or anywhere that needs concealing.
Bare Minerals also do a creamy concealer which i love as well as an under eye bright one too.
Which is like airbrush, setting & finishing powder in one.
Can be touched up throughout the day as and when desired.
As you can see its barely visible so doesn't affect the colour of your foundation.
Swirl your brush into the lid ....
Buff and dust onto the skin, concentrating on the
nose, chin and forehead areas then blending out to cheeks.
Bare Minerals also do a range of Bronzers, I like to use their Bronzing Mineral Veil. It gives a nice matte bronze tan colour which is very subtle.
I got all these items (except the bronzing Mineral Powder) in their great starter kit, which contains well...everything to get started.
I would recommend getting shade matched if you are unsure of your colour.
The colours can be quite forgiving for example a am a shade Light but could also get away with a shade below that fairly light or a shade above medium but it can be daunting to know which one to choose!
If i am on a desert island, there is no way i'm applying it with leaves and twigs! Haha!
