There are only 2 ways that your makeup will look powdery. If you apply too many layers of powder at once and if you don’t consistently hydrate your skin. Hydrating your skin is extremely quick and easy. All you need is a fresh washed face and your favourite facial moisturiser, applying a generous layer of moisturiser and letting it absorb will hydrate your skin all day. This will stop your face and makeup drying out, if your makeup dries out it will appear patchy, flakey and separated.
We all know that no matter how great a product is, if you apply a number of generous layers of powder to your face it will dry out you skin and look powdery/ cakey! Mineral Makeup is great for con
Primer, is it really an essential part of your makeup routine? Does it really make a difference? Yes! Primer is up there at the top with essential makeup products that you need in your kit. In this blog I will be sharing benefits of wearing primer with you!
A primers job is to create the perfect base for your makeup application. However, there is more than one primer on the market, there are specific primers for specific skin types. Before you go shopping for a new primer it’s really important that you understand your own skin. For example you may have larger pores, this is where a silicone based primer will help you, the silicone helps fill the pores for a smooth even application and stops bacteria being pushed into your pores making them look even larger!
One day you may have realised half way through the day that you have patches of makeup missing from your face or that your Foundation has separated on your nose. This is because you didn’t apply a primer before you

If you have a busy schedule and always find yourself on the go you may think, should I be putting makeup on everyday? There are many rumors that wearing makeup everyday will cause acne and damage your skin but that’s not the case.
Wearing makeup everyday will not be the reason for breakouts and blocked pores! If you apply layers of makeup to your face everyday and then neglect your cleansing routine, you will see ache appearing and black clogged pores. I can not stress enough how important it is to take your time with your cleansing routine! A simple makeup wipe will not remove all your your makeup, you need to double cleanse to make sure that your face is clean. If you want more information on double cleansing, check out our Should I Be Double Cleansing blog!
Wear as much makeup as you want, as long as you are taking the time to care for your skin. Leaving makeup on overnight or avoiding double cleansing can also cause aging spots and accentuate wrinkles. Wearing heavy e
Mineral eyeliner is different from other eyeliners because it comes in a loose powder form. How do I apply loose powder eyeliner? The application of applying mineral eyeliner will take a little longer because you will be using smaller strokes. After a bit of practice and following my guide you will be an expert in no time!
The first thing to remember is to take your time! Because you are working with powder you won’t be able to just quickly apply it to your lash line. The best brush to use is a flat angled brush to achieve sleek neat lines, before you start you will need to dampen your brush. The damp brush will help the mineral powder to adhere to your brush for an easier application!
Dip your brush into the product and tap off any excess to stop fallout lying under your eye and on top of your cheeks. It’s best to start in the corner of your eye and work your way out, using small strokes apply the product to your lash line. Work the product out towards the outer cor
Highlighter is the finishing touch that completes a makeup look with a shimmering glow. I’m sure that most of you have tried many different types of highlighter; Jelly, pressed powder and even liquid drops! But have you ever tried loose powder highlighter? You may be thinking that applying loose powder after you have applied a full face of makeup will be a challenge. Follow my easy guide and you will have no problems!
If you are new to highlighting let's start with where to apply the product. Everyone has different preferences as to where they like their glow to sit. Please don’t think that you have to apply highlighter to all of these areas, apply the highlighter to where you think it suits you best! Highlighter typically sits above the cheekbones, under your eyebrow, the inner corner of your eyes, bridge of your nose and cupid's bow.
To apply collect a small amount of product on the brush, tap off any excess and blend in small circular motions. If you want a more int
After taking off your makeup or washing your face have you looked at your pores? You may notice they are small or more noticeable. While in the skin care isle you may have noticed toners that will shrink your pores, sadly that's not possible! However using the right products and methods you can reduce the appearance of them. In this blog I will be giving you a helpful tip to achieve smaller looking pores!
Your pores will appear to look larger because they are clogged with dirt, making them more noticeable. The areas on your face you may be able to see your pores are on your nose and under your eye right next to your nose. The best way to reduce the appearance of your pores is by exfoliating 2-3 times a week, I recommend no more than this as over exfoliating will damage your skin! Your pores are full of dead skin, oil and bacteria, exfoliating will remove all of the dirt that has been stretching your pores. Leaving you with healthier and cleaner skin! After exfoliating I would
After reading our previous blogs you will know that the best tool to apply Mineral Makeup with is the Kabuki Brush! The dense brush works wonders for blending out loose powder. It’s very important that you regularly clean your kabuki brush, the dense bristles collect a lot of powder and then after time start to store bacteria!. You definitely don’t want to be applying your makeup on to a clean face with a dirty brush, this can cause your skin to breakout! Cleaning your Kabuki Brush is easy and today I will be explaining how to do this in 3 easy steps!
Step 1- Before you start applying your choice or brush cleanser, you need to wet your kabuki brush. Head for your sink and start to run the hot tap, however I would advise you to use warm water as this is better for the bristles and stops you from burning your hand! Place the Kabuki Brush under running water until all the bristles are wet through.
Step 2- Now you need to take your brush cleanser I recommend using an oil
