Getting Started with Orglamix Mineral Makeup

August 23, 2014 0 Comments

If you're new to mineral makeup or recently purchased one of our Getting Started Kits, here are a few tips to help get you looking great-- fast. While there are no hard and fast rules for mineral makeup application, except maybe --less is more-- we suggest you experiment with what works best for you.

Before applying your Orglamix mineral makeup, make sure that your face is freshly cleansed and dried. If your skin is dry, you may want to apply a moisturizer or Beauty Balm before you apply your makeup. We love the Orglamix Beauty Balm because it gives skin a nice glow and minimizes pores. It also provides a smooth surface on which to apply the mineral makeup. Be sure to allow any moisturizing product to dry completely before moving on to the next step.

Face
Gently tap a small portion of the foundation makeup into the overturned lid of the container or onto a makeup palette. A little Orglamix makeup goes a long way, so you don’t need much. In your kit you have two different shades of foundation. You can mix and match to find the perfect shade.

Swirl the foundation brush through the minerals and then tap the brush against the side of the lid to remove any excess. Again, less is more. Gently swirl the brush over your skin to transfer the Orglamix foundation, using circular motions. We like to begin with any problem areas, because this is where you want to build up the most coverage. We save the areas that don’t need much coverage for last.

If you have a lot of trouble spots, you can apply the foundation with the concealer brush. It provides the added coverage for that flawless finish. Apply it to trouble areas after foundation. For more problematic areas including some blemishes, scars, and dark under-eye circles, we recommend one of our color correcting Mineral Perfecting Correctors (sold separately).

Cheeks
After you've achieved the desired amount of coverage with the foundation and concealer, move on to the Mineral Glow and Mineral Blush (both included in the Starter Kit). Apply them using the same steps discussed above, focusing glow application only on areas that the sun would naturally hit, including the apples of cheeks, forehead, and chin. The blush provides a nice healthy glow, while the mineral glow adds a subtle shimmer and gives a flawless finish.

Eyes
Next apply the eyeshadow. You can use each color individually or together for a three color eye. The goal of this classic, common design is to apply a lighter eyeshadow color to the lid area and a deeper color in the crease slightly blending it upward. Applying the lighter color to the entire lid will make your lid look larger and brighter thus creating a rested appearance. You may also reverse this order, which can be helpful for those with large eyelids or protruding eyes.

How-to:

  • Using a large eyeshadow brush apply the lighter color to the base of the lashes and blend all the way up to the brow.
  • Next, use a crease defining brush to apply the second shade in the crease, blending up and out toward the outer corner of the eye along the edge of where the brow bone begins.
  • Keeping the second color in and just slightly above the crease will create a natural highlight under the brow’s arch while shading the outer corner of the eye.
  • For a softer, more diffused effect after crease color is applied, use a blending brush without any eyeshadow and blend using soft circular motions along the outer part of the crease.
  • You can use the darkest shade as a liner. Simply mix with a few drops of water and apply.

If you’re looking for a light, natural makeup that's good for your skin, try Orglamix makeup. When applied correctly, it lasts a long time, making it just as affordable as your favorite drugstore or makeup-counter brands.

As always, if you have any application questions, please reach out. We'd love to help you.
