“What do minerals do?”

*Titanium dioxide and Zinc Oxide provide sunscreen properties to protect delicate facial skin from the sun’s damaging rays.

*Zinc Oxide acts as a anti-inflammatory, drawing impurities from the skin without removing natural oils.

*Kaolin Clay also absorbs fats from the skin, refines pores & helps clear up breakouts.

*Serecite feels silky to the touch and reflects light, reducing the appearance of pores and wrinkles.


“Where does mineral makeup come from?”

Most Mineral makeup is made from naturally occurring minerals such as titanium dioxide, mica powder, serecite and iron oxides that have been used in cosmetics for thousands of years. Minerals are mined from around the world, purified, & crushed into fine powders.


How Do I choose a foundation for ’Women Of Colour?

Most women of colour including Indian, Hispanics and African Americans have a yellow based tone to their skin.

Always choose a foundation that has a yellow hue, not every women of colour is like that so make sure you choose what is best for your complexion. Many makeup lines are realizing that women either have red or yellow hues. After washing your face wait 10-15 minutes before applying any toners or moisturisers. Then look in the mirror and you should see either red or yellow tones to your complexion. Which ever colour stands out more is the foundation hue you should choose. 

The best blushes for women of colour are ones that go with the complexion and look natural. Less is more when it comes to applying blush.

Choose colours that are in the brown, bronze, tan, or red family depending on your tone.

Many African Americans naturally have more oil in their skin. Which is why the age slower than lighter skin. Most often the darker your skin the more oil is being produced. Which just means you’ll receive wrinkles much later than most women. In the mean time to achieve a Matt shine free complexion choose powders that are one shade than you would normally choose. Oil has a tendency to make your complexion look darker than it actually is. So if your oil production is high choose a colour one shade lighter than your complexion.

Eyebrow Shaping Tips - For lovely, well-shaped brows, you should:

Eyebrow Shaping Tips

1. Use clean pair of haf professional tweezers when you neaten your brows.

2. Clean the brow area with some methylated spirit or astringent. This helps to reduce the pain & clean the skin area of oils.

3. Pluck your brows after a hot bath – this will open up your pores & it will hurt less!

4. Remember never to pluck against the grain – that is, you should pluck your hair in the direction of its growth.

To complete the look, you should fill in your brows with some hf brow colour or mineral pencil makeup. Instead of the harsh look of a pencil-drawn eyebrow.



 

Application for haf mineral brow pencil

1. Use your haf angle brush with bristles. This gives you more control when you apply the brow makeup.

2. Swipe the brush over an eye pencil nib to get some colour.

3. Apply this over your brows, shaping as you go along with the brush.

4. After this, brush with haf brow brush for a more blended and smudged look so it appears very natural. You will also be brushing & styling them too!
5. To finish them off apply a extremely small amount of hf natural lip lube & brush them into shape again. This will keep them in place, give natural looking shine and train them in the direction that they should be going.

This great makeup tip never fails! Your brows will look polished & neat & you will see the difference between drawing your brows with a pencil & a brush. You have to bear in mind though, that this trick will be ineffective if you have messy brows – so do remember to neaten / pluck the strays on a regular basis.
