Cosmetics Tip #2
Less Is More
To achieve the most radiant, luminous face, remember three key words, “less is more!” Nothing ages you more than a cakey, over applied, and ill-suited color choice of foundation. Another faux pas is the dreaded “line of demarcation” where the foundation distinctly stops at the jaw line. Bring the makeup down the neck and feather it out until it is virtually invisible. Additionally, use a loose powder mineral foundation that you can layer until you feel the coverage is correct. A Get Started Kit from bareMinerals contains mineral foundation in perfect color combinations with brushes to facilitate a flawless finish.
