If you only need light coverage, then we recommend using our “Sheer Radiance Tinted Moisturizer”. It’s a one-step, sheer foundation that absorbs quickly, and hydrates dehydrated skin. It also provides a small amount of sun protection due to the natural mineral ingredients.
If you want the coverage and benefits of loose minerals, we want you to know that it is possible for mature skin types to wear loose mineral makeup successfully. Many women assume that powder-type foundations will accentuate fine lines. This is NOT always the case. They key is what you put underneath the minerals. A mistake a lot of ladies make is applying a moisturizer that is too heavy. In an effort to moisturize the wrinkles, they end up creating an oily base that causes the makeup to pool in fine lines and creases. A suggestion is to apply the more emollient creams at night time, when your skin has a chance to repair. Apply lightweight moisturizers underneath your makeup application. Facial mists, such as our Marine Mineral Toner plump skin cells with water, rather than oil which tends to accentuate fine lines.
Acne & Rosacea
Pure Anada cosmetics are ideal for problematic skin conditions that require full coverage without blocking pores. Our loose mineral foundation provides amazing coverage, yet still feels light-weight.
To achieve maximum coverage, apply the foundation in thin layers, misting your skin with the Marine Mineral Toner between applications. This hydrating mist helps to set the makeup and provide opaque coverage.
Some people are genetically predisposed to large pores. You can greatly reduce the appearance of large pores by applying a layer of Matte Minerals beneath your application of loose mineral foundation.
The minerals in Matte Minerals do not provide coverage, but rather a texture that helps to smooth over any imperfections. However, applying Matte Minerals before makeup will dilute the coverage of the foundation. If you prefer to keep the coverage properties of the foundation, then try applying Matte Minerals AFTER the foundation.
Additionally, it is important to use the proper foundation brush when applying loose minerals. A dense, soft brush helps to buff the minerals smoothly onto your skin. If you still notice your pores, it sometimes helps to blend the minerals as a finishing touch with the tip of your finger.
This is a common problem for ladies, especially those who are prone to oily skin. When shadow creases, it is essentially oils (either from your moisturizer, or your skin) that are sliding with the shadow into
creases. Of course, start the shadow application with clean skin. Try hydrating your lids with an oil-free hydrator such as the Marine Mineral Toner. Using a cream with an oil base, may encourage the creasing problem. Another tip is to apply a Matte Shadow on your lid first, as a primer. Matte shadows tend to crease less than luminous ones. Luminous shadows can be applied on top of the matte, if that is the look you are trying to achieve.
Dark Under-Eye Circles
This is the most difficult problem to correct, regardless of which makeup range you use. Cream and stick concealers can sometimes look heavy on the eyes, drawing negative attention to the problem
you are trying to solve! We discovered an amazing solution to dark under-eye circles using Pure Anada Glow Mineral Veil. The minerals in Glow Mineral Veil provide a silky, porcelain texture that help to smooth “crepey” skin. The color is a soft peach, that gently neutralizes the dark tones. Apply with a shadow brush, underneath foundation.
