  1. How much mineral makeup to use

    How can I apply layers of Mineral Makeup without my skin looking dry and flaky? I understand that some people are weary to use a full face of makeup products that are powder based. We have all had a time where we have over done it on the powder and you skin looking dry and cakey.

    I’m here to tell you that this won’t happen to you! Obviously if you apply an excessive amount of powder your makeup will look very cakey. However this is why Ncinc created buildable formulas, to give you the freedom to add as little or as much as you want to create a look that suits you! This goes for all of NCinc’s products, for example our Mineral bronzer. Some of you like a more contoured framed look whereas others like a sunkissed glow. It’s all about blending until you’re happy with how your makeup looks.

    Always start with a light small layer and then you can determine if that is the right coverage for you! Continue to build the product in even layers you achieve the look you want. You

  2. How to apply Mineral Foundation

    Switching from traditional liquid foundations to a loose powder based foundation will take some getting used to. The two most important things you will need to keep in mind are preparing your skin and using the right amount of powder. Follow my tips on applying powder foundation and you will soon be an expert!

    My first tip for you is to always start with a clean and fresh face for the best finish. Applying layers of makeup on top of an unwashed face is incredibly bad for your skin leading to acne and clogged pores! Preparing your face is the most important step in applying makeup. How you prepare you face will determine how your makeup will look as you are applying and throughout the day. Now you have washed your face, grab your go to moisturiser and apply a generous layer all over and let absorb.
