Let me just say that the weather’s been impossibly hot lately – today, it reached a sweltering 35 degrees celsius, and will probably be worse in the next coming days. Applying mineral makeup’s been quite a challenge, specially for people who can’t live without coverage like me. Well, whatever it takes, right?
There was a time when I just applied concealer foundation using a concealer brush dry on the problem areas, and spritz mineral mist on my face, then blend from there. It usually worked. But one really hot summer day, I just looked in the mirror with my covered areas all faded out. It wasn’t a good day for me! I was thinking that the weather might just shatter my dreams of flawless skin, but then, I switched back to my old technique, that absolutely saved my summer. It holds up even with the really hot weather and does-not-melt! Yay!
This is my old, and maybe, we can call it a classic wet application technique, that I wrote way back :
Well, to add, alot of my readers, and clients have been asking – how do you effectively blend those “patches” of concealer, applied wet?
Well, for those whose skin are really oily – you’re in for a treat. A secret of mine is somewhat this – I wait for the concealed “patches” to dry, then I whip my kabuki brush and apply a thin layer on top, applying lighter pressure on those “patched” areas, then I spritz my entire face with moisture mist, and let it blend. It usually blends when the mist dries, and blends even when as skin oils up. Another technique for those who have normal skin ( non oily, that is ), is that you can use a synthetic kabuki, and apply a light layer of foundation to semi-dry “patched” areas, so that you can see it blend in action. At least, for your peace of mind!
This is why I love mineral makeup so much. It’s perfect all year round, and it just holds up to my needs!
Well, do our readers have any tips on this? I’d love to hear from you, let’s all share the love!
