This is one of the most common questions I receive.
Aside from using safe, clean, and more natural products, many women want to have a natural look and not appear totally made up.
When it comes to makeup, your foundational face should be your first order of business to achieve that natural, glowing look.
Atop great skin, of course, (but that's another topic).
Let's get started with this really simple, very easy foundation tutorial.

We'll discuss 5 steps in this tutorial, but you can do just one or two of these or maybe all of these. Totally up to you, depending on your needs.
A primer is one of the best things you can do when it comes to applying makeup. It helps create a smooth, silky, canvas for a flawless application. It also helps to minimize your pores and fine lines and help your makeup last much longer.
Use a primer if you live in a hot, humid climate. It helps the makeup stay a little longer. You may also need to use a primer if you have larger pores, as it helps minimize pores as well as fine lines.Product Options:
The Pure Primer is an effective and wonderful choice for nearly all skin types and skin tones (since our Primers are nearly translucent they will work for dark or light skin tones alike). With only three effective, pure, and natural ingredients it is perfect even for super sensitive skin, and it will give you your most flawless, beautiful foundation application ever.
Embellish Pro-Aging Primeris a treatment powder with beneficial ingredients for slight exfoliation, help with skin's natural glow, and antioxidant support. It is a truly extraordinary option for mature skin as it works not only as a luxurious treatment powder, but it helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
You can either use the puff that comes with the jar or the Foundation Airbrush.
You don't need much product. Think about sprinkling a little cinnamon or nutmeg on your latte. That's just about how much you need. (Don't you just love that analogy?)
To actually apply your primer, simply tap a little product into the lid of your jar, swirl your brush, tap off any excess, and then apply it by buffing it into your face.
I typically start in the middle of my face because that's where I have the issues that I want to cover. And then work my way outward.
Some people opt to start from the outside and then work inward. It depends on your skin and where you need the most work.
Your primers & your tools
I am using the Sensy Rich Mineral Foundation formula, which gives velvety full coverage finish.Product Options:
We offer four totally unique, hand-crafted, high-quality, pure mineral makeup foundation formulas for you to choose from. Select a formula best suited to your needs.
Here's a quick list:
Just like your primer, simply tap a little product into the lid of your jar, swirl your Foundation Airbrush, tap off any excess, and then apply it by buffing it into your face. I usually start from the middle part of my face and then work my way out.
Don't forget to work on the jaw and the décolletage and neck area.
You can stop here. That could be your foundation.
A lot of women believe that mature skins can’t wear powder makeup. Contrary to this, I know a lot of women who love using powder; and of course, others prefer liquid foundation. I believe everyone needs to choose what works best for them.
For me, powder is so easy.
If you have any discoloration, like dark circles under the eyes or maybe some redness, using concealer or color corrector can help.
Know the type of concealer/color corrector you need.
I like using the Mini Fluff Brush with powder concealer.
As with the the foundational makeup, you don't need to use a lot of product. You just need to pick up the minerals from the lid (remember, it's just like the amount of cinnamon or nutmeg you sprinkle to your latte!), tap the excess and apply on your face.
If you need extra coverage, you might need a liquid concealer. I have two recommendations:
I'm using the new finish powder in the shop: Silken Beige Finish Powder.
Finish powder helps blend everything seamlessly, especially if you're using blush. It gives blurred softness and glowing look to your skin and helps make sure there are no lines of demarcation.
I'd like to use big fluffy brush like the Powder Buffer Brush.
When it comes to finish powders, there are two schools of thought:
In applying the finish powder, I usually start at the T-zone and then bring it out.
We have a new product (coming soon) in the shop: the Candlelight Radiance Powder.
Today I used the Perfect Blush Brush for applying the radiance powder.
Tap some product into the lid, and pick up some powder with the blush brush. Tap the excess.
You can use it all over your face lightly using a fluffy brush, like the Fluffy Powder Brush.
Or you can use the Radiance Powder as highlighter. Pat on the C area around the eye, right above the brow and on the cheekbones.
