Replace lid on container, shake container upside down lightly tapping to
loosen product. Upright container and again carefully remove lid.
If you replace the sifter, please be careful so as not to force powder out
the edges of the sifter. Most women find they are not able to replace
the sifter on the container due to the high amount of product inside the
container once they’ve loosened it. It is nice to own a vanity jar to

Colour ID Minerals Brand Makeup face powder foundations don’t need excessive buffing to apply.
Not only is all this buffing unnecessary it can be damaging to your skin if
you are using harsh brushes, as each time a harsh bristle (and there can be
hundreds of them) touches your delicate skin, it can cause small abrasions
for bacteria to enter underlying skin layers causing sensitivity, itching,
acne, and skin infection. Please do not use harsh or synthetic brushes
when applying your cosmetics except where indicated necessary as in taklon

Cleanse, Tone, Moisturize
Skin that is gently
cleansed, and moisturizes helps makeup blend easier. Moisturizing
is one of the best preps you can give your skin, especially is you
aren't going to wear a mineral foundation face powder. If you're
not wearing one of RAESIN IMAGES mineral makeup foundation formulas,
then you will want to make sure you are using a sunscreen with at least
an SPF rating of 15 or higher. (See new SPF

to non greasy natural moisturizer. What is it? Why you're

Mineral Make Up Primers
(powder, liquid, or cream)
If you think of a
primer for your skin as you would a primer for a car or the walls of a
house before it's painted, then you understand why it's needed. A
primer fills in cracks, lines, wrinkles, and pores, in the skins upper
layers. Primer's even out the skins surface texture, making it smooth,
while at the same time, holding moisture in, plus it helps makeup last
longer throughout the day and/or night.
First you need to know
what condition your skin is really in. Dry, normal, oily,
combination? Most women don't know, because they've overused and abused
products, so their skin is doing what it wouldn't normally be doing.
90% of women between the ages of 21-35 have normal or combination skin.
The rest of us are in one of the several hormonal skin stages.
Though some of us never get out of these hormone stages, so have
changing skin conditions at any given hour of the day. (how to pick your skin type)
If you haven't a flaw
to cover, and there are women that don't, then skip foundation, except
in those areas where you need it. (i.e. under eye, discolorations,
etc) For the rest of the population that feels they need some
coverage, or like to start with a washed canvas and add color where they
want it. Then you will need to figure out what tone/shade of skin
you have. See
Chart for how to find your skin tones I find most women
fall into a neutral category with neither a lot of pink or yellow
undertones. I have formulated Neutral, Aminah, and Linen color
categories, which suit 90% of my clients skin tones. Of course RAESIN

techniques are important.. Everyone uses a different method that
works best for them. It depends on the amount of coverage you are
needing, as well as what you're comfortable with or have for makeup
tools and accessories when applying. I usually used a flocked
sponge or makeup foundation brush for applying my mineral makeup face
powder. I have a great page on application tips
for mineral makeup foundation. Check it out and see what
method you prefer. Take your time, have the correct lighting, and
don't rush. It's always best to try a new method when you're
getting ready for an interview or date.
Concealers and/or Correctors
Concealers should be
1/4 -1 shade lighter then foundation. Don't go too light though
you'll only look like a raccoon! RI mineral concealers are formulated 1/4-1/2 shade lighter in each color tone, so all your
mineral makeup face powder products can be purchased in the same color
tone. I add light reflecting powders to all my concealer formula's
to help detract from the area. When using concealers it's always
best to apply only where you need them, as they are a thicker, heavier
formula. I usually apply concealers before I apply foundation,
this way I can see whether my models and clients really need foundation
or not. Always tap on, so you're not dragging the delicate eye
area skin. Taklon concealer brushes really do work best!
Use the concealer corrector chart for the proper colors to correct hyper pigmentation,
redness, scars, and other skin conditions you may have. My
concealer extremes are also formulated with light reflecting particles.
Use a foundation or concealer brush to cover areas properly.
Always start with a little, and tap on. Sometimes depending on the
amount of coverage I need I will use a wet powder or cream to work on
hyper pigmentation, under eye circles and acne scarring before I
apply our mineral foundation face powder.
Apply mineral face
setting powder with a big puff, just like you would any loose face
powder, and press lightly into skin. Use just enough to cover
areas where you may tend to be shinier throughout the day. I
sometimes only use my light reflecting blends of setting powder on

If we're doing make up
for a pageant, or photo shoot, then we add lighter powders, and darker
contouring powders where the face would normally shade, or I want to
recede a specific area. Blush isn't a good contour, so pick 2
shades lighter in your foundation tones, or my luminosity powders and you'll have a great shade that will work for you and not look
artificial, you can do the same with areas that may need lightening.
It's amazing what you can do to change your look with some proper
contouring and highlighting. Luminosity powders,
setting corrector powders, and Lumiere Powders are also a great way
to add dimension to your face, quickly and easily.
- Flawless Complexion
Blend, blend, blend,
blend. I really want everyone to understand the importance of
blending with a large fluffy powder brush.
A kabuki is good, I really prefer a long handled, long bristle,
natural hair powder brush for this. Just blend in a down and out
motion. Your skin should look completely natural and if it
doesn't, then you have too much product on and will need to take a clean
unused powder puff and tap allover your face, and then continue
blending, you can repeat this step if you've botched the job also, as it
or a tissue will blot off the excess powder. I also use one of my natural skin care
lotion mists or hydrosols of natural blends and/or spring water and
lightly mist clients facial skin, this sets makeup so you're ready to
start with your mineral makeup color cosmetic applications of products.
