It does take some practice to apply if you've never used mineral makeup before.

I use a baby kabuki brush to apply mine, but some people like to use a flocked sponge, which you can buy at Sally's. This is different from a regular cosmetic sponge - and it's not a velour puff like you see in compacts either. Just ask for a flocked sponge.

The type of brush you use can make all of the difference in the world - and a good quality brush is important, too. I don't think they make a *mineral makeup brush* - but a foundation brush would be a good place to start if you don't want to invest in a kabuki. I've heard that Sonia Kashuk's line of brushes is good (found at Target), but I've never tried them myself.

Another option is to apply the foundation as a liquid. You can mix a bit of the powder with your regular moisturizer & then apply.

I find I get the best coverage - and the smoothest, most natural look - if I swirl my kabuki in the powder, tap off the excess, and then spritz the brush with a bit of water (I use distilled water with a drop of sweet orange oil in it) - then swirl it on my face, blending quickly. If i need to blend more, I just spritz the brush again & go over that area. It gives a flawless finish everytime.

Hope this helps!
