Preparing Your Skin for Mineral Foundation

To begin buff the minerals in large, circular motions working from the outer frame of the face towards the nose. Start with approx. a 20cent piece amount of minerals.
Pour, or tap, a small amount of mineral powder into the lid of the jar. You will need less powder than you expect—a little goes a long way.
Swirl your kabuki brush inside of the lid until it takes up all of the mineral powder.
Tap the brush on the side of the lid to remove any excess powder.
