Rockin the Glow: My Mineral Makeup Look

by Bionic Beauty on 21.Nov.2007 · 12 comments

This was my entry into the Everyday Minerals contest. I decided to share it with everyone since I found some creative ways to use the mineral makeup (I used my mineral blush for my lips!). Let me know your thoughts.

This is a super easy, very natural makeup application. It basically highlights your skin, yet keeps it showing through and allows your eyes to pop just a bit. This look would be perfect for a casual evening out, or a day at the office!

My Everyday Minerals Contest Entry Look

Makeup Application Process for My Look: “Rockin’ the Glow”

  • I primed my face with a light application of moisturizer to ensure even application of the mineral makeup. Then I mixed a pinch of Light Olive Original Glo with Light Neutral Semi-Matte and applied with a baby Kabuki brush across the entire face and blended down under the jawline. Concealer in Intensive Medium was applied with a synthetic brush under both eyes, the inner corner of eyes and blended. The same concealer was then applied across the upper lip (due to my Melasma).
  • Swept entire face with a large Kabuki brush to blend everything out.
  • Blush in Sunday Brunch was lightly applied to the apples of cheeks and blended out in a circular motion.
  • Using Chamomile eyeshadow, a light sweep was placed on the bridge of the nose and blended out.
  • For the eyes, Countryside eyeshadow was applied to my lids and swept up into the crease. Brow bone and inner corner of eyes were highlighted with Chamomile shadow.
  • With a small natural bristle liner brush, eyeshadow/liner in Black was applied dry to the upper lash line and remnants on the brush were swept under the lower lashes for a slightly smoky look.
  • Lashes were coated with Physician’s Formula Mineral Wear Mascara in Blackest Black.
  • Lips received a light coat of Burt’s Bees lip balm and then Sunday Brunch blush was applied over top and moved around the entire lip with a lip brush. A teeny dusting of Veranda face color was used as frosting for the lips.

You can order Everyday Minerals from their website and don’t forget about their free sample kit (you just pay shipping and handling- great way to figure out your colors!).

you’re naturally very pretty, but you got a little heavy handed with the makeup brush here. the mineral makeup is so thick you look very pale!

Hi Karen, Welcome to Bionic Beauty! I hope you’ll stick around and comment more. :)
This photo was back before I discovered that not all mineral makeups were created equal. I’ve since found a better brand (Purely Cosmetics) that doesn’t go on thick and it buffs out so easily.

I *do* appreciate your comments & suggestions… but just so you know, I really AM that pale. :) Look at some of my new looks and photos on here. I am so glad that pale skin seems to be coming back in fashion a bit.

Again, thanks Karen and I truly hope to see you back here on Bionic Beauty!
