MINERAL MAKE-UP: Swirl-Tap-Buff

1. Sprinkle a small amount of Loose Base into the jar lid or a small dish or lightly swirl bristles over Pressed Base (Hint: Mineral makeup goes a long way; you don’t need nearly as much powder as you think you do). 2. Pick up the powder with the brush, working the powder into the bristles a little bit. 3. Knock the base or handle of the brush lightly against the side of the dish to remove excess, or turn the brush bristles-up and tap it lightly on counter to settle the powder into the brush (This keeps you from applying too much powder and getting a dry or chalky look). 4. Apply the powder to your face. Some like to apply in circles, some glide it on in long strokes. Even if you�re shooting for maximum coverage, remember that several light layers are better than one thick one.

CHEEKS: Contour, Highlight, Illuminate

Highlighters come in a variety of forms. Powder form is the easiest to use and tends to give the most natural look. Highlighters let you reflect light, and if applied correctly can highlight and contour your natural facial features.

The key to highlighter is applying with a light hand. You want to avoid harsh or obvious lines. With a chiseled blush brush lightly apply highlighter to the area just above your cheekbones. This will make them appear more prominent and enhance them. You want to follow your highlighter with a light application of blush. If you are using a multi-shade highlighting pallet such as Mineral Secrets  3 Shade Blush Pallet in Autumn Day start with the highlighter above the cheekbone, then using a dome brush apply the darker shade directly to the apples of the cheek and follow up with a lighter or shimmer shade all over. The contrast in colors from the highlighter to the blush will make the cheekbone look more pronounced. After you have contoured the cheekbone with highlighter and applied blush, apply a light layer of loose finishing powder over the entire face. This will reduce shine and help to set your makeup.

You may also use this “highlighting “concept on other facial features such as the nose and chin. If you have a wide nose, apply highlighter down the center of your nose and a darker shade of makeup along the edges. If you have a narrow chin, apply highlighter lightly to the tip of your chin to visually bring it forward, causing it to appear more prominent.

Step 1- Highlighter: Apply just above cheekbone

EYES: 1 Shade Drab to 3 Shade Fab!

Do you always use the same one eye shadow color everyday? Don’t neglect the other colors in your eye shadow pallet—Break free from your everyday routine and learn how easy it is to apply three shades instead of just one! Follow these simple steps.

1.      Prime the lids by applying a light touch of foundation or concealer to the lids. This will ensure your eye shadow adheres to the lid. 

2.      Start with applying a base color to the entire eye lid-from lashes to brow bone. Choose a color similar to your skin start at the lash line and work your way up. 

3.      Next you want to highlight the brow bone. Apply your lightest color here. It can be shimmer or matte whichever you prefer. Apply shadow directly under the brow bone from the middle of the eye outwards. This will help to open up the eyes. 

4.      Now take the next darkest color and apply shadow from lash line to the crease. Blend well outwards. The darkest color can be applied to the crease of the eye from the corners to the outer edge for a more dramatic look. Be sure to blend well. 

5.      Finish by applying a thin line of eyeliner to the top lid. To avoid drag marks and smudges look down and dash short lines with even strokes. 

6.      Apply mascara and you are ready to go. Be careful not to get little dots of mascara on the lid before it dries. Closing your eyes for a couple seconds to allow the mascara to completely dry will help avoid transfer. 

Note:  Blending is key to avoid a drastic line across the crease. The best way to blend 3 shadows is with a precision fluff eye shadow brush. It has a special rounded head designed to evenly distribute multiple colors.

Lips: The 3 L’s to a Perfect Pout!


The Perfect Pout: Lip Enhancer, Lip Stick, Lip Gloss and
We’ll Provide the 4th L, our Signature Luxury Lip Liner, for FREE!

Start with a Lip Treatment. This assures your lip stick will not only stay in place, but will eliminate it from pooling in the wrinkles and creases that naturally occur over time. Skin Rx Clinic’s Lip Treatment Enhancer is a revolutionary plumping lip treatment that’s works by binding to the natural moisture in your lips. Once the peptide molecules combine with the moisture already produced in the lips the molecules expand filling in the lines and crease and giving you a smooth canvas to apply your lip stick. Peptides and vitamins help stimulate collagen and elastin not only for an immediate result but for a lasting effect.  Lip Treatments work best when applied with your finger in a gentle patting motion. This helps push the treatment into the lip tissue instead of just smearing on the surface.

Next you will apply your Lip Liner. You want to keep your lip liner in the same color family as your lipstick. For example: If you choose a nude lipstick you want your lip line to be equal or a shade darker than your lipstick. This will ensure everything blends smoothly and there are no sharp drastic lines! You want to start in the middle of your upper lip and line down. Do the same thing for the bottom lip, start in the middle and work out. This will give you a smooth thin line instead of a thick messy line. Your lip liner is the barrier between your lip line and your lipstick so it is an essential step in Perfect Pout process. This is our free gift to you when you purchase any of the 3 L’s!

Now you are ready to apply your Lip Stick. Choose a shade you are comfortable with. Always start in the middle of the upper lip and follow the natural lip line. If you go over or above the natural line of your lips the lipstick can run and feather and bleed into any lines you may have above the lip. Same concept for the bottom lip. Start in the middle and work your way to the corners. Again stay within the lip line or you can make the bottom lip look much bigger than it actually is—in a bad way! Let the Lip Treatment Enhancer do the plumping for you!

Finally it’s time to shine. Applying your favorite Lip Gloss can make all the difference when obtaining that “Perfect Pout” look. But don’t overdo it! It is easy to go overboard with lip gloss. But less is more when dealing with shine. The proper way to apply lip gloss is to dab a small amount in the middle of your bottom lip and press your lips together. You can do this until you have achieved your desired look. Applying gloss to the entire lip can be sticky and look clumpy and is sure to come off much quicker than if you just apply where it is needed. The purpose of Lip Gloss is to seal the deal—it keeps your Lip Enhancer and Lip stick in place and adds that extra shine to perfect your pout!
