FINISHING POWDER -Use a much lighter hand with less powder. Lightly dust over skin. BRONZER/BLUSH -Use very small amount of color, whether bronzer or blush. -For full face bronzer, use a very small amount of color and very lightly dust skin. -For blush: Starting at hairline, lightly dust color along cheek bone contours in downward motion. Use a light dusting of pink onapples of cheeks if desired. Blend all with kabuki for natural coloration. NOTE: After applying blush or bronzer as blush, use kabuki (without any additional powder) in light downward strokes to blend color into skin for a natural glowing appearance. CONCEALER -Use guidelines for foundations to apply light dusting of concealer powder over areas of discoloration. Concealer can be dusted on the back of hands or areas of legs to camouflage age spots, veins, or other areas of discoloration. BRUSH CARE: Brushes need to be washed frequently for maximum effectiveness, and especially the kabuki brush. If your brush ever begins to pull it is an indication of build up. Washing the brush will return it tits original softness and glide the powder flawlessly over your skin. Wash with gentle soap and water. Rinse thoroughly. Dry, and store the kabuki with the hairs facing up.
