    Default mineral foundation question

    I've recently changed to mineral makeup. I'm finding that in the morning after putting it on the coverage is quiet good but as the day goes by it looks like it has washed off and you can see my spots etc (which I have alot of !) very easily. I just use a normal moitsuriser before applying the foundation.

    Is there anyway or anything else I can use ( e.g ? a primer) that would help the foundation last ?

    I can totally vouch for primer! My makeup lasts so much longer with primer than without!

    See if there's one in the same range as the foundation as they generally compliment each other.

    I too have a spotty face and love concealer on my spots! They are still virtually hidden by the end of the day when i use concealer.

    Seconded trying a primer, I only use one for special occasions but I do notice a difference. I use the natio ageless primer and have found it to be quite good.

    My routine:

    Moisturise, primer, foundation, concealer, setting/mineral powder.

    Eyeshadow (also with primer so it lasts all day), eyeliner, blush, mascara, lips

    I taught myself and learned a lot from watching clips on you tube! Free info and super helpful!

    Thanks alot Princess Pud !

    another stupid question ... you mentioned using mineral powder after the cocnealer... Is your foundation liquid based ? reason im asking is the foundation I have is in powder form (so wondering if I should be using a liquid one and than powder ...or get a separate setting powder )... can you guess I'm totally clueless about all this

    No such thing as stupid question. Sorry, yes my foundation is liquid based and the mineral powder is lightly brushed on last over the top of everything.

    I don't even know if that's "correct" application but it works for me

    Which brand mineral makeup do you use? I have been thinking about getting some for a while but not sure which brand!
