Foundation Color Guidelines:

Cowgirl Dirt Foundations come in three different base skin tones:

Warm Shades (Grullo): natural yellow and orange skin undertones

Cool Shades (Cremello): natural pink and blue skin undertone

Neutral Shades (Champagne): mixture of pink and yellow skin undertones

Light shades are numbered 0, 1, 2, and 3.  Dark shades are 4, 5, 6, and 7. You know you have the correct shade of foundation when the foundation blends perfectly with your skin while in the sunlight. No matter what your skin tone, our specially formulated foundations will complete your look.

How to Apply Mineral Powder Foundation:

To achieve even application without wasting powder, start with Cowgirl Dirt’s Large Foundation Brush and a small amount of Mineral Powder Foundation in the lid of the foundation container.  Tap the side of the brush against the lid to ensure any excess falls off the brush.  Apply the foundation in small swirls, working from the outside and moving in toward the cheeks and nose.  Keep applying until you reach the desired consistency. Remember, with mineral makeup, a little goes a long way.

How to Apply Blush:

Cowgirl Dirt's Wild West Blush is thoroughly pigmented to give you all day coverage and simple application.  Start with Cowgirl Dirt’s Blush Brush. Open the blush container's swivel sifter slightly and tap a small amount of the blush into the lid. Swirl your brush in the blush. Tap the brush on the side of the lid to remove any excess powder.  Start with the apple of your cheek and brush the powder with an angled upward motion toward the edge of your face until the desired area is covered.  For a more specific contoured look, use Cowgirl Dirt’s Angled Blush Brush to achieve a flawless contoured look.
