In recent years, the variety in mineral makeup has grown rapidly. Many of us use it, either through choice or just because we like the formulas, but what actually makes mineral makeup different to regular formulations?
Why is mineral better than traditional makeup?
Although minerals are in no way new to the market, they are growing in popularity as we become more aware of what we are putting on our skin. In general, mineral formulations are free from talc, chemical dyes, binders, preservatives, artificial colours, oils, perfumes and other potential irritants.Mineral formulas tend to be lighter in texture, creating a flawless look that still has a natural finish, something many of us long to achieve with our cosmetics.
Are mineral products better for my skin?
As mineral products are free from lots of ingredients that could potentially irritate the skin, they are great for all skin types. It also means they are great for sensitive skins.Another benefit is that they provide a good level of coverage in a light, breathable formula that won't clog the pores. Mineral bases are ideal for those with acne prone skin to conceal blemishes without the risk of developing new breakouts.
Do I apply mineral makeup the same as traditional makeup?
Only slightly. When it comes to minerals a little goes a long way, so start with a light hand and build to your desired level of coverage. The formulas are light so there's no risk of it going cakey.Want to find your perfect mineral makeup
