Get the look of flawless skin with mineral makeup

Mineral powder is quickly becoming one of the most popular makeup choices for many reasons. Mineral makeup is a natural cosmetic product, and many brands use only hypoallergenic, earth-friendly ingredients. Mineral makeup offers professional results, easy application and can help keep your skin healthy. Whether you are just learning to apply makeup or have been using foundation, blush and eye shadow for decades, mineral powder makeup can be the perfect addition to your beauty routine.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  1. What are the benefits of mineral makeup?
    Mineral powder makeup offers a myriad of benefits. Mineral foundations and color cosmetics are light on the skin, allowing your natural beauty to shine through. Mineral powder makeup can cover blemishes and even out skin tone without being excessively heavy on the face. Mineral powder works well in all environments, including those that are excessively dry or humid, and it is perfect for a variety of skin types because it is less likely to clog pores or dry out sensitive facial skin.

  2. What type of mineral makeup should I shop for?
    All mineral powder makeup is loose, and it comes in many varieties. Mineral-powder starter kits may include mineral foundation, blush, eye shimmers, concealer and translucent finishing powder. You might choose to purchase your mineral powder makeup products separately, adding a mineral powder foundation to your existing makeup routine or using a translucent mineral powder in place of makeup on busy days.

  3. What is mineral makeup made of?
    Although all cosmetic brands have different ingredients, the basic minerals in mineral makeup products are zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, iron oxides and mica, which are all ground into a fine powder. Some powders contain additional ingredients, such as skin-soothing plankton or algae extract, green tea extract or sunscreen.

  4. How do I use mineral powder makeup?
    Mineral powder makeup is popular for its ease of use. One of the easiest ways to apply mineral powder is to use a large, thick brush. Gather some of the makeup powder on the large brush and either tap or gently blow on the brush to remove excess. Apply the powder in a circular motion, working from the outside of the face toward the nose. To apply concealer, eye shadow and blush powders, use a smaller brush and a more precise technique. A translucent finishing powder may be used over the top of other makeup, or it can be used on its own in place of foundation.
