Steps to combining liquid with mineral powder

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

Many products out there are “noncomedogenic,” meaning that they won’t clog pores and cause acne or cystic acne. Aside from using only products that are noncomedogenic, special application steps should be followed to further help avoid potential problems when combining mineral and liquid makeup. Here are some tips for combining liquid with mineral powder:

  • Make sure that the liquid makeup goes on first.
  • Always apply liquid makeup as a thin layer with a sponge.
  • When the liquid product has dried, run a dry sponge over your entire face to wipe off any excess that might have lingered.
  • Once the liquid makeup is dry and applied to your liking, the dusting of mineral makeup can begin. Caking on can cause irritation, so be sure to use light, even strokes while applying.

For over a decade, Scott-Vincent Borba has been a renowned innovator in the beauty category and has worked on such esteemed brands such as Hard Candy Cosmetics, Johnson & Johnson®, P&G/Wella-Sebastian, Shiseido/Joico, and Dr. Murad. 
Scott-Vincent helped found E.L.F. Cosmetics with the idea that quality color cosmetics shouldn’t be limited to high-end department stores.

Scott-Vincent has been a high-fashion model, TV personality and became a licensed aesthetician to further his credentials and experiences. He founded BORBA, and continues to use his creative thinking to push the envelopes of skin care as we know it.

Good advice. With two layers of foundation, there will be great coverage.

Thank you for the tip. I've heard that sometimes using both liquid and powder foundation helps.

Great Advice! I love to wear foundation and mineral powder, but sometimes it gets really thick and "cakey" looking. I will try these steps and let you know what I think! Thank you! :))
