There has been a lot of hype about mineral makeup since it was introduced to the market few years ago and this is because mineral makeup claimed to be all natural. And this is true. This type of makeup is made from natural ingredients devoid of all harmful chemicals that affect your skin. But due to its price, many people are worried to make the switch from known types of makeup to mineral makeup.
Quality of the Product
This type of makeup consists of very few ingredients in comparison to other types of makeup. The main base ingredient found in this type of makeup is the mineral mica. Mica is an elite mineral and has wonderful skin adhering properties. Most conventional makeup companies use talc instead of mica due to its soft feel and touch. Certain companies while promoting mineral based makeup would try and infuse it with talc. Therefore always try to read the ingredients of the product carefully before you make any purchases.
Healthy for Skin
What most people don’t know and find it hard to fathom is the fact the makeup acts as a protecting agent against free radicals. This protection however won’t be provided if you continue to use harmful and cheap cosmetics. Conventional makeup mixes into the water of your skin and tends to clog pores which leads to a breakout of acne. If you use mineral powder foundation on your skin, the elements within it mix into the natural oils of your skin keeping your skin clean, pure, and radiant as well as a protecting agent.
Versatility of the Product
Unlike other conventional cosmetics, this type of makeup can be used for a variety of makeup purposes. For example, your mineral powder foundation can be mixed with a soothing crèmes, moisturizers and water to create a liquid based cosmetic. Since it is free of artificial dyes and additives it can be substituted and used as many other cosmetic products such as eye shadow, eyeliner, mascara, lip gloss, blush, nail polish and much more.
This is the best type of makeup to invest in if you are busy and don’t have time to constantly retouch your makeup. With a light application you will be able to easily create a basic coverage for your face. And if you want to cover up certain areas, all you need to do is to apply a bit more makeup in those areas. And since it mixes in with the natural oils in your face it creates a natural and long lasting texture that will last throughout the day, despite of your busy schedule. And once you find the perfect mineral makeup for you, you will not want to go back to conventional cosmetics!
