Applying mineral make-up

Sheer Cover's® natural mineral make-up is finely ground, light, and easy to apply. Best of all, it hides all kinds of imperfections - letting the real you shine through. Sheer Cover® is recommended for dark circles, age spots, freckles and sun damage - as well as other special cosmetic needs such as scars, breakouts, and broken capillaries. With Sheer Cover® Mineral Powder Make-up, virtually any skin blemish can be hidden. You can even use it on your arms, legs, neck and across your body to hide all skin imperfections. That's not to say that mineral make-up is purely for those wishing to hide their skin flaws. Everyone will love the natural, flawless finish, the healthy glow and the pure ingredients that treat skin gently. So regardless of how you wear it, Sheer Cover® mineral make-up will help make you feel more confident, carefree and beautiful!

 

Step 1. Match your skin tone

Sheer Cover® kits include two different shades of Mineral Foundation. Wear them individually or mix them to create the perfect look for your skin.

To find the shade that matches your skin, start by lightly applying the Mineral Foundation at the side of the jaw line.

If your shade is too yellow, too pink, too light or too dark, blend a little of the opposite based shade.

Experiment with mixing two shades together until you find the perfect match. Then you can pre-mix in quantity.

Step 2. Prepare the skin

Always start with a clean, dry face, by removing any dirt with your favourite cleanser - or why not try Sheer Cover® Conditioning Cleanser?

Apply your regular moisturiser or try Sheer Cover Nourishing Moisturiser with SPF15.

Prime your face with Sheer Cover® Base Perfector by applying a smooth layer over face. Foundation spreads more easily on smooth skin. Be sure that it is completely absorbed into the skin.

Step 3. Brush away flaws

Tap a small amount of Mineral Foundation into the lid of the jar or on a piece of tissue

Place the powder brush lightly into the powder. Gently tap the brush against the side of the jar to remove excess powder.

Start brushing the Mineral Foundation from the outside of your cheeks inward towards your nose, using a circular motion. This will avoid excess powder at the centre of your face.

Apply evenly to your entire face and blend where needed with your fingertips.

Tip: A little goes a long way, so start by applying lightly, then use more as needed.

If you prefer a liquid foundation or a tinted moisturiser, put a few drops of Sheer Cover® Moisturiser into your hand and mix with the Mineral Foundation. Be sure to blend well, especially at the hair and jaw line.

Step 4. How to treat problem areas

For problem areas that need heavier coverage, such as a birthmark, there are two simple steps:

Step 1: Cover with Concealer.

Apply the concealer to the area first. To apply, use your fingertip or touch a Concealer Brush, cosmetic sponge or cotton swab directly to the Duo Concealer.

Dab the concealer on to the desired area. Blend well.

Step 2: Colour with Mineral Foundation.

Place the powder brush lightly into the Mineral Foundation. Gently tap the brush against the side of the jar or on a tissue to remove excess powder.

Apply the Mineral Foundation from the outside of your cheeks inward towards your nose. This will avoid excess powder at the centre of your face.

Apply evenly to your entire face or blend where needed with your fingertips.
