Mineral makeup is made from minerals that are found in nature. These minerals include zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, iron oxides, and mica. They’re used to create colours for eye shadow, blush, lip gloss, and other cosmetics.

Mineral Makeup is Noncomedogenic

Often touted as being healthier than traditional makeup because it’s free of chemicals such as parabens, phthalates, and synthetic dyes. Mineral makeup also contains no petroleum products, so it won’t clog pores or irritate the skin. In addition, mineral makeup is hypoallergenic, meaning it’s unlikely to cause allergic reactions. Finally, mineral makeup is noncomedogenic, meaning it won’t clog up pores.

How to Apply Mineral Foundation

If you’re interested in trying out mineral makeup, there are several things you should keep in mind when applying it. To apply mineral makeup, first, cleanse your face using a gentle cleanser. Then, use a damp reusable cotton pad to pat dry your face. Next, apply a small amount of moisturizer to your face. Use a good-quality foundation brush to apply enough product to cover your face completely.

  • Mineral foundation is really easy to use, the secret is to use just a tiny amount and add more if needed.
  • Sprinkle a small amount into the tin lid or a plate.
  • Swirl in your foundation brush.
  • You need to keep swirling until the powder has worked its way into the brush and you can’t really see it.
  • Apply to your face using a buffing motion.
  • You can then build up the coverage until you get the desired effect.

Ingredients Used in Mineral Makeup

Mineral makeup contains ingredients such as zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, iron oxides, mica, talc, kaolin, and bismuth oxychloride. These minerals help give mineral makeup its color and texture. They also protect against UV rays and prevent skin irritation and help give the skin a healthy glow.
