Mineral Makeup Tips to Keep Clear Summer Skin: Birchbloggers


It’s hard enough to keep our complexions clear in the sweaty summer months without worrying about cakey makeup clogging our pores. To ensure a face free of blemishes we’ve been reaching for mineral-based products, like Pür Minerals’ new CC cream which forgoes fillers and chemical dyes. We’re big fans of the lightweight texture since it doesn’t clog pores or irritate skin. But we wanted even more mineral makeup tips, so we reached out to our Birchblogger community and asked them for their best tricks. Here’s how they’re using these mineral formulas to beat the heat:

Frances of Hello Frances

@hellofrances1: I’ve always loved my @purminerals chisel brush to lock mineral powder foundation in place! I follow up with a setting spray!

Haley of Haley Here

@Haley_Here: prepping the skin by exfoliating and moisturizing is crucial for a flawless finish when wearing mineral makeup

Michelle & Valerie of Pass the Rouge

@passtherouge: I love to mix my mineral shadow with a bit of water to create deeper and more vibrant color.

Katie of Coffee Lovers Dilemma

@KatieLadytheRD: use a darker mineral shadow for eyeliner, wet brush & make powder liquidy for a light eyeliner! 

Meg of Beauty College Budget

@BeautyBCollege: mineral makeup wont clog pores but its best to use a weekly scrub to keep pores clean & have a smooth surface 

Elizabeth of Love, Life and Beauty

@elizabethmayce: Less is more with mineral makeup & make sure your moisturizer is set and dry before applying!
