Make-up with mineral powder - how it works
Here we see Simona's face without make-up. Of course she is very beautiful as well. However, you will clearly see what ANGEL MINERALS achieves when she has make-up on: It brings out her natural beauty even more and she looks completely authentic.
A few recommendations first:
1. Take your time. Especially until you get to know how to use the mineral powders.
2. Provide a make-up area with good light (preferably daylight).
3. Prepare everything you need for your make-up beforehand. Then you can see whether, for example, the colors of the rouge match the lipstick.
One difference when using mineral powder compared to conventional cream make-up is that we start with the eye area, because it can happen that the powder when applying the Eyeshadow trickles down.
We start with the eyes
We draw an eyeliner directly at the base of the lashes with one of the brushes: Lid-, eyebrow- or eyeliner-brush.
Depending on which one you prefer to work with. For the eyeliner, use a dark, matt color such as black, dark brown, aubergine, blue mystery, dark grey, petrol, dark green, indigo, violet.
In the outer triangle, shade with either one of the eyeliner colors listed above or you can add: Greige, Rosewood, Chocolate. They're not that dark.
To do this, use one of these brushes: Blender, Stamp or eyeshadow brush.
A lighter eyeshadow (matt or glossy) looks good on the movable lid (up to the front area and up to the crease). Recommendations for the movable lid are: Light Lilac, Light Rose, Orange, Velvet Blue, Golden Beige, Caribic, Kiwi, Malachite, Moon, Pink Fairy, with similar brushes as above. You place the highlighter directly under the eyebrows with champagner, apricot, silverrose or white. Finally, coat your lashes (twice) with our Volume Mascara.
Concealer under the foundation
We use concealer to cover up all unwanted parts of the face. To counteract shadows under the eyes, we use Karneol (warm) or Opal (cool) from our INTENSE series. You are also welcome to use the YELLOW concealer for this part.
To tone down all reddish areas such as pimples, scars and reddening of irritated skin, we use Citrin (warm) or Topaz (cool) from the INTENSE series. If the areas are very red, Concealer Mintgreen will help. If it shows through under the foundation, you should rework it with the Concealer Beige.
We apply the concealer with the stamp (brush) or under the eyes with the concealer brush because it is particularly soft.
Of course you can also use the concealer over the foundation or - that's how I do it - under and over it.
Which is your Kabuki?
The fine synthetic fiber of the kabuki is vegan and was specially developed for mineral powder. The fine hairs absorb the powder and pass it on to the skin undiminished. No other brush can do that.
Simply put the tip of a knife in a ceramic or glass bowl, stir the powder with the kabuki in the bowl until the powder has been completely absorbed. Gently move the kabuki in circular motions on the face. Always stroke outwards from the nose (centre).
Our Kabuki are:
Stand Kabuki (left, the most thick): Particularly thick and firm - for foundation.
Baby Kabuki (right, a little thinner ): For blush and foundation on the jurney.
Nano Kabuki (middle, flat top): For contouring, concealer, hair concealer, blush.
You can use the beautiful curved ceramic bowl (in the Shop) also obtain from us.
You should try out the right tone for the foundation before you apply the foundation.
We have divided our foundation into three color categories: ROSE - NEUTRAL - YELLOW.
In addition, we have created some Foundation SPECIALS and a series with a higher coverage: INTENSE.
If you try out your tone, just paint some powder on your cheek or forehead. If you don't see this test line on your skin, you've hit the right tone.
Then you can work the foundation onto your face with the kabuki. This requires a little practice, but it is a wonderful feeling to feel the fine hairs on the skin. You won't want to be without it anymore.
The aim is to distribute the powder with the kabuki so well that you then look completely without make-up and (only) have clear, smooth skin.
Fresh kick with blush and Mini Lip
Rouge in matt or shiny tones rounds up the make-up and makes the skin look fresher and more radiant. You can't go wrong if you place the blush on the cheekbones. This should also be the part of the face that stands out the most. From there, sweep the blush outwards to the hairline. There are two things to note about blush:
1. In the case of wrinkles around the eyes, the rouge should not be powdered too far up into the eye area and thus into the wrinkles.
2. If you have narrow faces, make sure that you don't make them up in such a way that the rouge causes them to sag at the sides.
Lipstick or Mini Lip: Both should be color-coordinated with the blush color. The complete make-up is most harmonious when it matches the color type, i.e. at least either in the warm or in the cool direction. Simona is an autumn type who - because she is still so young - can also wear the strong spring colors in her make-up very well.
