Hi all,

My box of Jane Iredale mineral makeup arrived today. I bought the pressed powder(for more of a matte finish for summer), loose powder, circle /delete concealer, D20 spritz & all necessary brushes. Jane's online instructions are vague to say the least. Ok, after my sunscreen, now what? Put concealer on? When appling pressed powder, where exactly do I start on my face and what motions am I to use....Jane says downward strokes(doesn't seem natural), but I hear swirling, buffing.......I am very confused. I realize it will take practice, but what's the best way to apply? Thank-you!! Tips & secrets please.
I have Bare Minerals, but I'd imagine that application is similar! What I do when applying the powder foundation is I get some on my kabuki brush, swirl it in the cap to get it spread out evenly over the brush, and tap it to get the excess off. Then I apply it mostly in swirly motions on my face. I have to apply it very gently around the eyes of course so it's kind of hard to do the swirl motion but I try my best. I usually have to dip the brush in powder about 3 times, but some people need it only once and some need more.. it varies. I usually start with one cheek, then the other cheek, and then my forehead area. I kind of split it into thirds, but it's up to you which way you think is best. I prefer to blend it outwards because I don't need as much coverage around the outer edge of my face.

With the concealer, you might want to experiment. I just use my concealer brush with my foundation powder or I put on a regular concealer before putting on the powder. You can test out both ways and see which works best for you. It definitely is something you have to experiment with because it works differently for everybody.. but using the correct brushes really does make a big difference! So I usually do concealer, powder, any extra concealer if there are spots not covered still (I do a light dusting over powder over it to set it), then I put on my blush and/or bronzer. During the day when my face gets any shine, I use my Mineral Veil to soak up any shine and give me that flawless look again.

Good luck!!
