Mineral Makeup: Uncompromising Beauty
Over the past few years, mineral makeup has been gaining popularity in the beauty world. Famous for being all-natural and free of chemicals, mineral makeup is our go-to choice when it comes to cosmetics. But why exactly is it so great? Let us break down why we love mineral makeup so much:
They are 4-in-1 products.
One of our favourite things about mineral makeup is that it is able to perform multiple functions at once. Mineral makeup foundations are not just foundations – they also function as concealers, skin enhancers, and sunblock all in one. On top of this, mineral makeup can be used as “face colours” rather than being limited to a specific function. For example, the same product can act as an eye shadow, a blush, or even a lip colour! It’s all about versatility with mineral makeup.
They are skincare products.
Made up of 100% pressed or loose minerals, mineral makeup products do not contain drying ingredients such as corn starch and talc; instead, it uses zinc, which is a key ingredient in many mineral makeup products and is a natural anti-inflammatory and antibacterial, making it purifying and soothing for all skin types, especially rosacea, acne-prone, sensitive, and aging skin types. It is also the active ingredient that gives mineral makeup its sun protection factor (SPF)! Plus, because mineral makeup does not contain irritating and drying ingredients, it is less likely to go on cakey, powdery, or flaky when applied to well-hydrated skin. What’s not to love about that?
They offer better coverage.
The pigments found in mineral makeup are derived from the minerals themselves. Traditionally, chemical dyes are added to a makeup base to create colour, but since minerals are able to pull their own weight colour-wise, mineral makeup products do not need chemical fillers and are typically highly pigmented, offering exceptional coverage when applied.
Pure + simple tips:
To get the most out of your mineral makeup, make sure to hydrate your skin beforehand. If your skin is dry, the powder will not hold onto the skin properly.
To finish the look and help your makeup last longer throughout the day, don’t forget to set your makeup with a hydration spray or hydrosol. Not only does it give you a flawless finish, it also creates a more natural look!
