ADVICE: From a professional side we want to tell you that mineral makeup is safer than traditional makeup and here are some READY-STEADY-GO Tips&Tricks on how to use it better:
- Prepping your skin beforehand
We know you don’t like to spend a lot of time applying your makeup. We’ve been there, but it’s important to have a clean face before you start your makeup routine. Wash and clean your face with a cleanser, put on a refreshing toner and after that nourish your skin with a moisturizer. This will ensure that you have a perfectly clean base. You can also use a primer if you want to make sure that your makeup will last all day.
- Eye makeup should be applied first
You remember the days when we did the eye makeup last? That’s long gone and if you don’t want your eye makeup to spread on your face....you must do it first. Why? Because it’s easy to clean if needed and you can remove the eyeshadows you’ve already done to easily change up your look if you don’t like it without ruining your whole makeup. That’s why.
- Choosing the perfect brush
With a loose mineral foundation, you can’t go wrong. You will definitely achieve a natural look, but you may be left with a lot of excess powder which you can get rid of with the right brush. Brushes come in different sizes and shapes, you just have to find the perfect one for your face, so this is all down to your personal preference and what facilitates you a perfect look with every application. It’s very important to find the perfect one because you will see the reward at the end. TIP: Try to use a normal brush when applying your mineral makeup and then a professional one and you will see the differences. The brush is the most important thing when you are using mineral makeup.
- Learn the correct technique
If you don’t know how to apply mineral makeup try to learn from the best. Utilize YouTube tutorials or use your own technique in order to have perfect looking skin at the end. Use a small amount of product, buff in it, try to apply with a circular motion to give your skin a natural finish. Consider updating your technique according to your skin needs. TRICK: Research, test and learn.
- Use blush or bronzer product if necessary
Want that rosy color effect on your cheeks? After you finish your makeup you can add a little glow by using a mineral powder blush or bronzer. It’s very important to use a powder formula when you are using mineral makeup, especially loose mineral foundation because if you use a liquid formula blush or bronzer you can create a patchy finish. Just remember – Powder with Powder.

Your eyes and lips are where you are most likely to mix things up in your daily makeup routine, but your eyes are where you can really have some fun. Add drama, color, a smoky eye, or create a signature look by testing out different ways to make your eyes pop.
Play With Color
The first thing you want to decide each morning before you head to work or school, or on your way out for the evening is what eyeshadow colors to apply. You can play with current trending colors in eye makeup, of which pink and lime are hot for spring of 2019. You can match or contrast your eyes with your outfit. Or you can select colors that will make your eyes pop:
- Pink, purple, silver and gold make brown eyes pop
- Violet, plum, and purples make green eyes pop
- Chocolate brown and metallic neutrals make green eyes pop
MicaBeauty Mineral Makeup is extremely gentle, free of preservatives, chemicals, dyes, talc, oils, and other fillers—and it stays put all day!
The Perfect Gel Liner
Eyeliner frames your eyes making them pop. Black liner looks great on everyone, white liner in your inner corners brings tired eyes to life, and metallic and colored liners let you get creative. If you are new to applying liner or want to be a bit more subtle charcoal or chocolate is a great starting point. For those who love drama, play with thickens, wings, and cat eyes. Gel Eyeliners & Gel Eyebrow Liner are the easiest to apply and give you the most flexibility and freedom to get creative. Apply your liquid liner after your shadow is complete and before your mascara.
The Magic Of 3D Fiber Mascara
You can apply false lashes daily, magnetic lashes as you wish, or have lashes individually applied—but don’t count out the magic of mascara. MicaBeauty 3D Fiber Mascara Kit brushes on length and thickness. Enjoy 3X thicker and fuller lashes with almost double the length. Be sure to curl before you apply.
Expert Tip: Prime Before You Apply
Have you ever found yourself frustrated when applying eyeshadow because it goes on much lighter in color than the pallet? Sometimes this is due to the quality of your cosmetics, but your skin tone plays a role in how saturated your shadow looks. To intensify the color and make it look like the pallet we suggest you apply MicaBeauty Eye Primer before you get started on your eyes. Regardless of your skin tone this primer delivers a neutral starting point, ensuring full color saturation. It will provide you with an even, smooth and long-lasting finish. Last but not least, it prevents creasing, smearing, and fading for all-day wear. You can also dab it on top of metallic shadow to create a matte finish.
