About This Color: This medium/dark brown mineral eye liner is the color of a freshly pulled shot of espresso, and works great around the eyes as a liner – or it can be used as a matte shadow. Mineral liners are easy to use, in that you simply wet your fine tipped brush, and apply as you would a liquid eye liner. They are also diverse so you can use them as liners – or as shadows and blending shadows, too!
About Our Mineral Cosmetics: Many store bought cosmetics are full of preservatives, and ingredients that can be quite unkind to the skin. On the other hand, not all mineral cosmetics are created equally, either. We’ve found that they often contain bismuth oxychloride which is a cheap, bulk-filler. This ingredient adds a “shine” to foundations that many women dislike. It is also a known skin irritant which does nothing to improve the surface layers of the skin. Our formulas do NOT contain bismuth oxychloride. If you’ve ever tried a mineral foundation which irritated your skin, we suggest that it was most likely formulated with this ingredient.
It’s our experience that with continued use of our mineral products, you’ll find that the condition of your skin may improve. This is because we formulate with high quality, skin healing ingredients. You also generally need less make up than typical products … thus you achieve a more natural presentation.
Directions for Application:
To apply foundation: using a wide brush, apply a small amount of foundation powder in circular motions. Allow the first layer to set for a few seconds, then apply as many “layers” as needed in the same like-manner as before until your desired color is achieved. Some women like to set their foundation with a fine mist spray (lavender or rose hydrosol water work well) though others find that their natural skin oils set their make-up just fine.
For eye shadow and liner application, simply use a small brush applying layers until your desired color is achieved.
