Mineral Secrets Mineral Makeup is now available in a pressed foundation base. It is a natural sun screen (SPF15) with its Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide ingredients. This medically advanced breakthrough formula is in a pressed base that offers great coverage just like our loose mineral base. The pressed gives a lighter coverage if you prefer; or by increasing the amount, you can get full, richer more opaque coverage. It covers and camouflages redness from rosacea, acne, and post surgery scarring. The non irritating sunscreen protects against ultraviolet damage.
The cost is higher, because there is more powder in the pressed compact (13 grams) and, of course, it comes with a mirror in the compact.
Note: Mineral Secrets' bases have sun protection qualities due to the Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide ingredients. However, you still need to use a sunblock with sun exposure! Our bases will protect your skin better than if you had nothing on, but you still need to protect your skin adequately with a good moisturizer with SPFs.
NOTE: Compact is not refillable. Make-up refills are available for the refillable makeup wallets only.

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 do not 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 are shooting for maximum coverage, remember that several light layers are better than one thick one.
With the Flocked Sponge, the process is similar, but you can vary the coverage by changing the way you apply it to your face. Experiment with patting, rolling and stroking your foundation on. For a different look, try applying your Base with a damp sponge.
You can also use a clean flocked sponge to smooth on that flawless look after applying powder with a brush. Using downward strokes minimizes the look of pores and causes those fine little facial hairs to lie down and disappear!
