  • after wash your face, apply your moisterizer then your makeup, that should work.

  • You should also use a primer before applying your makeup, that way you have a smooth canvas to work with. Also up your moisturizer since it is now the drying time of the year.

  • You need a good moisturizer and a primer. Do you live in a cold climate? That might be causing the problem. I suggest AM/PM Solutions moisturizer from Avon and the Magix Face Perfecter Primer from Avon. I use both and love them. You might want to switch to a mousse foundation too. I use the Avon mousse foundation in the winter when my skin needs a little more help. use coupon code fsany for free shipping too.

  • wash face, toner, moisturizer (primer optional) ... I personally dont use mineral makeup, i use mac's stick foundation and concealer.. what works for me always is , after applying concealer and foundation (not too much of it) i use mac's invisible powder to kind of set the both in. then continue with my eyes and whatever else. after i'm done i use mac's finishing spray. *

    * if you choose to use a primer a great one i recommend is the HD line in sophora
