For those of you who need a little tutorial on how to apply mineral makeup, the following is the video that Leslie Blodgett of Bare Escentuals made to show you the tricks. It doesn’t matter if you use Bare Minerals or not, the methods are the same for any loose mineral makeup. Personally, I’ve been using Korres Mineral Makeup since my skin has been a little dry this winter and the Korres is not as drying as the Bare Minerals Matte foundation. I don’t use the regular bare minerals because it contains bismuth oxychloride, which irritates my skin.

Quite a few people complained that the woman in this tutorial doesn’t have anything to conceal, so here are a few tips for those of you (like me) who need more coverage:

If that doesn’t do the trick, try a more full coverage foundation such as Lancome Teint Idole or Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Stay in Place Makeup. I’ve used both and haven’t broken out from either. The Estee Lauder one stays put for hours on end.

Have fun experimenting!
