Is ordering on your website secure?

Yes, rest assured that all Guthy-Renker websites use several layers of security, including:

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption, an advanced security protocol that protects your credit card information and ensures secure online ordering. SSL Internet connections have 128 character encryption, which is virtually impossible to break, and thus protects all credit card ordering information, including your name, address and credit card number, so no one can read it in transit.

I've got the right shades, how do I apply the Mineral powders?

To apply your make-up, follow these simple steps:

Step1:   Dip your brush into the minerals and tap the end of the brush a couple of times on a hard surface to make sure the powder falls securely into the Bristles of the Brush. Tap off to remove any excess powder.

Step 2:  Moving your brush in circular motions, starting at the outside of your face, brush the minerals gradually working over your forehead, nose, eyes and decolletage.

Step 3 (optional):  Start with a thin layer of Mineral Foundation first, then layer again if needed

Tip: The powder is very concentrated, so a little bit goes a long way!

Can I use Sheer Cover Studio™ on other places besides my face?

Absolutely! You can wear it on your neck, arms, legs...anywhere you want to cover problem areas


How long should Sheer Cover Studio™ brushes last and how do I care for them?

It's important to keep your make-up brushes clean as they'll otherwise gather bacteria, that will be transferred to your skin. This in turn may lead to spots. You can keep your make-up brushes clean by washing the bristles with a mild soap and cool water (not hot) and left to dry in a warm environment. The brushes can last a long time with proper care.

Any make-up artist will tell you that good brushes, used correctly, are vital to creating a flawless finish. So, it's important (with regular use) to make sure they are well maintained, if not, you should change your brushes.
