Inika Mineral Foundation
- Inika Mineral Foundations are a concealer, foundation and a powder in one.
- You can achieve an absolutely flawless finish without clogging pores or irritating skin. Due to Inika's dense pigments you can completely hide skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, redness or scarring whilst allowing your skin to breathe!
- With Inika Foundations you look fabulous and you don't even feel like you are wearing make up and you also have the added benefit of in-built natural sun protection.
- Inika Foundations should be applied with the Inika Vegan Kabuki Brush following the 3 step process as outlined below.
- Inika Mineral Foundation is 100% Certified Vegan and 100% Certified Cruelty Free.
Benefits of mineral foundation
- Naturally water resistant
- Great for acne, rosacea and scarring coverage
- Flawless finish without looking or feeling heavily made up
- Can be used as liquid or powder foundation (great if you have dry or flaky skin)
- Built in sun protection
- Use such a small amount it lasts longer than traditional foundation
How to apply mineral foundation
- Dip your Inika Vegan Kabuki Brush into the powder and work into the bristles ensuring the brush is evenly coated.
- Tap off the excess powder, turn the brush bristles up and tap lightly against a hard surface to settle the powder.
- Apply in light downward strokes all over the face. For heavier coverage, use a circular buffing motion, swirling all over the face.
- The Vegan Kabuki brush is the key to applying our mineral cosmetics in a professional manner. It has been designed to work specifically with your Inika powders. You can also use a latex sponge for a more matte finish.
- Do not add more mineral makeup to the brush when working around the eye area. It will have a tendency to settle into the lines around your eyes.
- The secret to using mineral makeup is to apply it in very sheer layers. It is the light refracting qualities of the pure minerals that give it the ability to cover the skin naturally and allow your inner beauty to shine forth.
- For those with dry, flaky skin, Inika Mineral Foundations can be blended with moisturizers to create a crÃƒÂ¨me foundation. First moisturize as usual, and then tap a small amount of powder into the palm of the hand. Add a drop of moisturizer. Blend the two products together until a smooth, creamy consistency is achieved. Use your fingers or make-up wedge to apply.
- For the perfect medium-light coverage with oil controlling properties, blend equal amounts of Inika Mineral Foundation and Inika Setting Powder.
- For post laser surgery: Do not apply minerals over a heavy petrolatum based balm or heavy cream. Makeup will get cakey.
If you have very dry skin, you can spritz a little skin freshener on top. This will re-hydrate your skin and take away a dry or flaky look.
Also, if you mist with the skin freshener, and then use a flocked sponge or brush to lightly smooth your make up in a downward motion; you will minimize the appearance of large pores.
Inika Mineral Make-up can be applied after certain facial work and treatments and with the soothing and calming properties of zinc, mineral cosmetics are the only cosmetics recommended by leading beautician's, dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons.
Choosing the correct colour
It is best to test foundation in natural light. Otherwise you could find once you go outside, the shade may be too dark. The purpose of foundation is to even out the skin tone. Sometimes once you have done this, you may look slightly washed out. This is because you have taken away all the natural contours of the face. Use bronzer to bring colour and warmth back to your features.
Inika Mineral Setting Powder
- Mineral setting powder can be used in several ways, as an oil absorber before foundation application, or after to create a matte finish. It can also help reduce the appearance of large pores.
- Shake the pot with the lid on to bring a small amount of setting powder into the sifter.
- Press the powder into the Kabuki brush. Work the powder into the Kabuki brush bristles and ensure the brush is evenly coated.
- Tap off excess and turn the brush bristles-up and tap it lightly on the counter to settle the powder into the brush.
- Blend onto the face using short, vertical and/or horizontal strokes. This will allow for more even foundation coverage and increased staying power.
- Oily Skin: For maximum oil absorption, apply before foundation application. Use your Kabuki or a cosmetic sponge to apply.
- To reduce the appearance of large pores, apply dry with a sponge or use our Kabuki brush in circular motion to buff it into the skin before foundation application. After you have applied your foundation, dampen a cotton pad (ever so slightly) and lightly pat over your pores.
- Matte Finish: To create a matte finish, dust Mineral Setting Powder over foundation with Kabuki brush.
- Oil absorber/Other: To prime lips and eye area for long lasting makeup, press with small brush before colour applications.
Inika Eye Shadows & Eye Liners
Inika Eyeshadows and Eye Liners have been specially formulated to work in harmony together. The pigments of the Inika Inika Eyeshadows react with the pigments of the Eye Liners. When you apply Inika Eyeshadow over the top of Inika Eye Liner it will pull out the pigments of the shadow to give you dramatic colour, a metallic effect or an iridescent sheen depending on what combination you use.
Inika craft the most vibrant, opulent and sexy colours you've ever seen, this is achieved by refracting light through iron oxides. The purity of the Inika pigments gives you amazing stayability and depth of colour.
Inika Mineral Powder Eyeshadow is a superfine blend of mica which has a light and silky feel. All the shadows are multi purpose and can be used as shadow, highlighter, contour powders and eyeliners.
Inika powder Eye-Shadows are incredibly versatile and can be applied in three different ways to create different looks and shades:
Use as straight powder for a more natural look, luxurious colour or perfect blending. Get creative by layering one colour on top of another. Use on top of Inika Eye-Liners for vibrant colour that will last all day and night! You can achieve amazing metallic or iridescent looks using this method. Fantastic alone or use in combination with eye liner for intense / metallic or iridescent colour or use with water as a liquid liner.
