Mineral Makeup, Demystified

Attracted to those gorgeous pots of loose, shimmery makeup, but don't have the slightest idea how to use them? You're not alone. We checked in with Christina Choi, a makeup artist with Bare Escentuals, for some simple pointers.

> on eyes Dip the tip of a damp, flat eye makeup brush into the pot, then use it to line lids. We like Prestige Shimmering Trios Mineral Eyeshadow Dust ($12; at drugstores), above.

> on lips Pat color onto the center of your lips with your fingertip, then top with clear gloss for a sheer, slightly iridescent tint. Try Colorlisicious Pro Pigments ($7; urbanapothecary.com).

> in hair Create stunning temporary highlights by blending a dime-size amount of makeup and a dollop of hair gel in your palm; spread through damp hair. We like Bare Escentuals BareMinerals Extreme Glimmers ($32; sephora.com).
