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.

Mineral Make up is essentially pure crushed minerals. Two of the minerals are natural sunscreens so the makeup has a built in sun protection. Unlike traditional powders you “buff” the minerals on. The warmth of your skin causes the minerals to slightly liquefy and form a natural finish on your face. When the minerals are applied properly (which can take some practice) your skin has a glowing, natural look. Mineral Makeup generally refers to the Loose Mineral foundation, but there are many other mineral makeup products - finishing powder, face color, blush, eye shadow, eyeliner, etc. The minerals generally come in a loose powered form but it also comes in pressed or liquid.
There are several factors to address when dealing with acne and blackheads. First you want to make sure you are using the proper cleanser. This makes all the difference. By keeping the skin exfoliated and killing pore clogging bacteria you can prevent the breakouts from occurring in the first place. Skin Rx Clinic carries a Jojoba Exfoliating Cleanser. It is give a deep down clean feeling and contains Jojoba beads to naturally buff away dead skin cell build up. That in combination with Salicylic Acid allows the skin to breath even under makeup. You should also use a good moisturizer. This will assure your skin stays properly hydrated throughout the day and as a result will not over produce oil and clog the pores leaving room for bacteria to grow. Skin Rx Clinic also carries a Glycolic Face Lotion that is lightweight and beneficial in helping prevent and clear up acne prone skin. Now that we have touch base on what to do before you apply your make up to keep your skin clear, let’s talk about the right kind of makeup. I am sure you have noticed the Mineral Makeup crazy, and rightly so…it is fantastic! You also have options; Mineral Secrets carries a fantastic line of mineral makeup products, Pressed Mineral Base, Loose Mineral Base and Liquid Mineral base. These are all oil free products made of mineral pigments and will not clog your pores or cause acne causing bacteria to grow. My personal preference is the Liquid Mineral Base. I love its texture and it provides medium coverage without feeling heavy and wearing off mid day! But if you prefer a powder base the Loose Mineral Base is light weight and provides minimal coverage, the pressed is also lightweight as it is still a powder but it provide better coverage. One you decide on what type of Mineral Makeup you prefer the rest is easy…just apply and feel how natural your skin feels and looks!
Nothing worse than that orange look from the wrong shade make up! So I do have some advice. I have been a make-up artist and skin specialist for a while now and matching skin tone is one of the hardest skills you have to acquire. So when I say I know what I'm talking about I say it confidently. Mineral Secrets carries a Mineral Base line of cosmetics. They have the traditional Loose & Pressed Base Minerals, but they carry a Liquid Based Mineral Foundation as well. And that is what you should be using. Advanced technology delivers all the benefits of mineral makeup powders in an easy-to-use hypoallergenic liquid powder. It has a velvety smooth texture and provides medium coverage. It is a breathable make up and will blend right into the skin without looking like you are trying to cover up your freckles. Mineral SecretsLiquid Mineral Foundation is also a natural sun screen (approximately 15 protection) with its Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide ingredients. As far as your skin tone the Liquid Base come in two colors that I am sure will match...Porcelain & Linen. I would suggest getting both colors to custom blend a color that's perfect for you, but if you have to chose only one Porcelain has a pink undertone and Linen has a yellow undertone and is the lightest shade. I also suggest using Mineral Secrets Loose Porcelain Finishing Powder over the Liquid to provide a matte finish, oil absorption and ability to diminishes pores. If you would like to give your skin that sun-kissed glow without looking orange Mineral Secrets carries a Kenya Safari Bronzer that is perfect for the skin tone you have described. Using the bronzer will also help tone down the look of your freckles if you choose. This combination will be your savior...
I highly recommend trying Skin Rx Clinic’sJojoba Exfoliating Cleanser. It is specifically formulated with AHA, Salicylic Acid & Grapefruit Oil. AHA/Glycolic Acid helps reduce dead skin buildup, this will allow for the Salicylic Acid to penetrate deeper and kill the active bacteria that’s under the surface instead of just trying to dry out the blemish from the outside. Jojoba Beads are natural scrub agents that are gentle but effective at keeping pores from getting clogged. Grapefruit Oil balances the drying effects of the AHA’s with its anti-irritant properties. If you are serious about clearing up your skin and quality is what you are looking for…this is defiantly the product for you!
