- Using a concealer brush, get a decent amount of mineral concealer on to it by dipping it into your pot of mineral concealer. Apply this on any blemishes, freckles on your face or dark circles under your eyes that you wish to conceal.
- Next get a little bit of your mineral foundation on to the lid of the foundation container and gently dip a large kabuki brush into it. Tap the kabuki brush on the side of your lid in order to shake off any excess mineral foundation that you may have, do this till it looks like your brush has no minerals makeup on it. Remember, mineral makeup looks best with minimal application.
