Are you now part of the mineral makeup revolution that has conquered the world by storm. If so, mineral foundation makeup is indispensable in your makeup kit. On the other hand, if are not and are apprehensive about using them, here are some things that you need to know about.
Natural mineral makeup is based on the concept of makeup that is actually good for the skin. We all know how the traditional makeup we have gotten used to wearing contains a number of harsh ingredients. Mineral makeup, on the other hand, is largely based on hypoallergenic micronized mineral powder that actively nourishes the skin. These makeup products do not contain talc, fragrances, alcohol, mineral oil, dyes and other preservatives harmful for the skin.
Those with sensitive and acne-prone skin can take most advantage of mineral makeup. The revolution created by mineral cosmetics started out with mineral powder foundation. Mineral foundations are widely available in the market and prove to be the most significant product in the mineral cosmetic industry.
Three Types of Mineral Powder Foundation
Though originally formulated in loose powder form, liquid mineral foundation as well as pressed mineral foundation were made available shortly.
Loose mineral makeup foundations simply look like powders, but unlike traditional ones that only give off “smooth finish”, loose minerals provide sheer and complete coverage.
Liquid mineral foundations look a lot like liquid foundations.
However, liquid mineral foundations further nourish the skin because they also contain moisturizers and vitamins.
Pressed mineral foundation is also applied using a sponge or brush. Its main advantage is its compact nature – you can go without the messiness of loose powder.
Which is the best mineral makeup foundation for you? Loose minerals are actually in the purest form, and do not need additives or binding ingredients that liquid and pressed mineral foundations do. So if you don’t mind getting some mess onto your table when putting on makeup, you might as well go for them.
Mineral Foundation Make Up Brands
Mineral foundations come in different brands in all shades. Bare Mineral foundation proves to be the most popular brand in mineral foundation today. Bare Minerals provide excellent coverage, protect the skin and are relatively affordable. However, not all mineral foundation makeup brands are created equal. You should know that there are other brands which can offer your skin a lot more than regular mineral foundations do. Let us look at two brands which I highly recommend:
Alison Raffaele Mineral Powder
Alison Raffaele is one of the best brands in the mineral makeup industry. Their sheer mineral powder mineral foundation provides a weightless feel on the skin but provides it a natural looking matte coverage while giving it a flawless finish.
Susan Posnick Colorflo
Susan Posnick’s Colorflo offers invisible coverage with the flawless look. It has been designed for easy and quickly application, giving your skin a healthy and radiant glow. With an SPF of 26, Colorflo mineral foundation is available in a self-dispensing refillable tube with integrated brush that is unique in the mineral foundation makeup market.
The two brands are non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic, anti-bacterial and contain a range of vitamins to actively nourish the skin. These are two of the mineral foundation makeup brands which you will surely not regret purchasing.
