Soft Coral Makeup Tutorial (+ Mineral Makeup Discount Code)

Monday

I’ve recently been buying things from Etsy lately, and I found this shop that sells mineral makeup. If you have noticed, I haven’t used any mineral makeup for my blog posts or even on my freelance kit. The shop called Beneficial Minerals is owned by a woman named Kelli. She is based in Washington and created these products in her home studio.  As a first-time mineral makeup user, I was skeptical about its coverage and longevity. Surprisingly, it lasted longer throughout the day than I thought when I used it. The color also really showed up perfectly. I created this look for the fresh and blooming seasons of spring and summer.The steps are so simple and easy, that you should try it on for this kind of weather!

Also, keep scrolling down as I’m giving away a discount code to use when you shop for these mineral makeup products! :)

FACE

  1. Moisturize your skin using your favorite facial moisturizer.
  2. I first applied liquid concealer under my eyes, eyelids, around my nose and other areas that need to be evened out.
  3. Using a buffing brush, I buff the *mineral foundation from Beneficial Minerals all over my face and blend it well. I like to put the product on my palm, which I find easy to grab for more space.
  4. Using the same brush (but cleaned), I grab the *mineral makeup blush in Coral and apply it on the apple of my cheeks.
  5. The *Beneficial Minerals blush in Adobe, has a light shimmer in dark brown. So I thought to use this as a contour powder for the sides of my nose and cheeks.
  6. Apply a highlighter as well on the upper part of your cheeks, bridge of your nose (if needed), and upper lip.

EYES

  1. I fill up my brows and blur some harsh lines, using a soft brow pencil.
  2. I use a flat eyeshadow brush to start patting down the *mineral eyeshadow in Coral, and apply it on the entire eyelid. I like to buff off the brush to remove some product and start to buff off the harsh lines on the eyelids where I applied the eyeshadow.
  3. Try to use a natural (not white) eyeliner over your waterline to open up your eyes if you have a similar eye shape to mine.
  4. Curl and apply mascara to the upper and bottom part of your eyelashes. Instead of using one strip of false lashes, I opt to use individual ones since it’s more natural and flattering :-)
  5. Apply a thin line of eyeliner. I used liquid pen eyeliner for this look.
  6. Apply a tiny bit of darker eyeshadow from the lower, outer lashline onto the center. Then, blend the edges.

LIPS

  1. I apply a liquid creamy lipstick and if you want to see some examples, check them out here
