Loose Mineral Powder Foundation has the unique characteristic, that it can be used in two ways - and get a lightly powdered look, or a full-coverage foundation look.
For the lighter look, apply some Loose Mineral Powder Foundation to your skin after moisturizing with a brush.
For the full-coverage look, work a larger amount of Loose Mineral Powder Foundation into damp skin (almost directly after applying you day cream.) This way you get a full foundation look, where your skin is covered fully - like with a cream foundation. With the added advantage of using a powder, without oils or anything else that clogs pores.
