Mineral Makeup

Powder mineral foundation has been the rage since Bare Escentuals created Bare Minerals 20 years ago. It is a foundation in powder form made from natural minerals such as titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, mica and iron oxides. The ingredients in mineral makeup are gentle on the skin, are non drying and contain natural sunblock making it a good choice for those with sensitive skin. 

Check the ingredient list on the product before you buy a mineral makeup. The list should be short and the ingredients should be names you can easily pronounce.  Some manufacturers are adding other non mineral ingredients to their mineral makeup so it really isn't pure mineral makeup.

Mineral makeup is easy to apply once you get the hang of it. Sprinkle a bit of makeup into the container lid. Swirl a nice fluffy brush into it. Tap off the excess. Now, you are ready to apply it to your face. Use circular motions with the brush. It will surprisingly give you nice coverage evening uneven skin tones and redness. 

You can find mineral makeup at many stores including Sephora, department stores and even in your local drug store. Just remember to read the labels to find a pure mineral product.

Have a Beautiful Day!
