The Best Way to Manage Rosacea

Rosacea is a common skin condition that is very much misunderstood.

Over 16 million Americans suffer from Rosacea. It’s red-faced, hot acne like effects can cause significant psychological, social and occupational problems if not properly treated. In fact, a recent study showed more than 76% of patients with Rosacea said this problem skin condition lowered their self-confidence and self-esteem, while 41 percent reported the condition made them avoid social situations.

Although Rosacea can’t be cured, it can be managed through medical treatments. Great news, right?

The problem is, these treatments only solve half the problem because the skin can still look ravaged. And forget about covering it up with just any makeup. The stubborn redness eventually bleeds through.

And women with Rosacea need more than a makeup that just covers, they need one that also cools and calms the skin.

That’s exactly what you get with KmS Mineral Essentials loose mineral foundations. The Zinc Oxide in our makeup acts as a cooling agent that soothes hot, angry skin, minimizing the patchy redness left by Rosacea.

5 Essential Products For The Bride

Bridal Makeup and KmS Mineral Essentials

June marks wedding season! Though makeup tastes vary from Bride to Bride, there are certain essentials every girl must have on her wedding day to make sure her makeup lasts longer than she does! Today, we’re going to talk about the 5 essential products for the bride other than waterproof mascara!

1. Primer

A makeup primer not only makes your foundation go on much easier, it minimizes the size of your pores and helps your makeup last longer than you do on your special day!

2. Water Resistant Foundation

Slightly different than waterproof foundation, a water-resistant foundation handles the heat and perspiration like a boss so you can be super-confident your makeup won’t “melt”, and looks just as fresh as it did when you first put it on.

3. HD Powder

A High Definition Finishing Powder is a camera’s (and your) BFF, because it creates a soft focus finish to your makeup; magically blurring fine lines for a flawless, radiant, complexion.

4. Highlighter/Luminizer

There’s something magical about a highlighter. When it’s strategically placed, it diffuses light, keeping the attention off of skin imperfections, making the skin appear dewey and fresh. 

5. Liquid to Matte Lipstick

The last thing a bride has time to do is reapply her lipstick throughout the day. That’s where a liquid to matte lipstick really comes in handy! Just apply 2 coats and you’re done.

No lipliner needed, so bleeding outside the lip line isn’t a problem. And the best part? It won’t transfer to the bride’s champagne glass or more importantly, her guests!

So, there you have it. 5 essential products for the bride. Did we miss anything? List it below in the comments.

 

 

Getting The Most Out of Your Mineral Makeup

Untitled

I love, love, love makeup products that multi-task!

Know what? Mineral makeup is one of them! Today we’re going to talk about getting the most out of your mineral makeup and saving a little counter space to boot!

Going Beyond Foundation

If you’re a makeup minimalist, you’ve probably looked into tinted moisturizer and BB Creams. These are great products, but, they limit you to very few shade choices.

If finding the right foundation shade has always been a challenge for you like it is for me, you’ll be thrilled to know how easy it is to make your own tinted moisturizer. It’s easier than you think! All you need to do is add 1/8 teaspoon of your loose mineral foundation to your favorite moisturizer. Prefer more coverage? Try adding a little more!

Three Products In One!  

When used in different ways, your loose mineral foundation can be used as a concealer and finishing powder. Using a concealer brush, apply your foundation by pressing the product right on top of your blemishes, brown spots or whatever it is you’d like to cover before, then follow by applying your foundation as you usually do.

Once you finish applying your foundation, take a large powder or kabuki brush and lightly dust your face with a very light layer of foundation, just as you would a finishing powder. And if it looks a little too chalky or powdery, swipe a clean kabuki brush over the entire face, especially around the areas where extra product likes to hide like around the nose, brows and ears.

One Stop Shop

If simplicity is your thing, you’ll love this next tip!

Why not try this the next time you enjoy a weekend getaway? Use your blush as a shadow! Pinks, corals and neutral colors work very well together, so using them as both a face color and shadow not only makes sense, it saves you time, space, and a little money too!

And lastly, don’t forget your favorite shadow can also double as a great eye liner. Prefer liquid liners? Kick up the intensity by adding a drop or two of water to your shadow and apply with a liner brush.

How to Erase Under Eye Circles Like a Pro

under eye concealer

Under-eye circles. Just like a bad boyfriend, they seem impossible to get rid of. 

And if you find a way to cover them, it can be very difficult to conceal them without looking overdone, or worse yet, looking much older than you are. Yikes!

The good news is, under eye circles can be managed when using the right product and technique to get the job done. Today we’re going to talk about the do’s
and don’ts when applying concealer to erase these pesky circles.

DO use a yellow based concealer such as KmS Mineral Essentials Rested Concealer. The yellow completely neutralizes dark circles.

DO take your time when applying your concealer. Nothing good ever comes from rushing.

DO apply concealer in the inner corner first before applying underneath the entire eye. It may be all you need to remove the shadow.

DO apply your eye makeup before your under eye concealer. This prevents shadow fallout that may land under the eyes making them appear darker.

DO try to stay with “like” products. For example, if you use powder foundation, use powder or cream-to-powder concealer, and if using a liquid foundation, use a cream or liquid concealer. Mixing powders with liquids and creams can easily make a mess not to mention accentuates any fine lines or wrinkles.

When applying concealer, DON’T wipe or swipe. Doing this wastes product because you end up removing more than you’re applying.

DO apply by pressing or “dabbing” concealer directly over the circles, then blend at the edges.

DON’T use too much concealer. Begin with very little. Believe it or not, less is more, especially if you need to apply more than one layer of makeup.

If you’re over the age of 40, DO use a clean ring finger instead of a brush to apply your concealer. Your ring finger is the weakest of your fingers which guarantees you’ll be using less.

DON’T forget to religiously use an eye cream with caffeine such as KmS Skin Essentials Java Eye Cream to reduce swelling that can sometimes cause dark circles.

DO get treated for your allergies (if you have them) and get plenty of rest which may prevent these nasty circles from rearing their ugly head in the first place. 

So how do you cover your circles? Please share below or post any questions you may have. Be sure to keep an eye out for a demonstration video on this topic in the weeks to come.
