Mineral Make-up

Touted as the most natural and non-toxic cosmetic choice available at your beauty counter – mineral make-up has none of the usual oils, preservatives or chemicals found in ordinary foundations and powders.

It comes with built in SPF and has been big news in beauty in the States for quite some time, largely due to the flawless finish it gives and because of its reputation for minimising break-outs and blemishes.

As its name suggests mineral make-up is made from all-natural, powder based minerals and pigments and therefore takes some getting used to. For a start it feels different on the skin, plus, if you’re used to using cream or fluid foundations, it takes time to learn how to apply mineral foundations effectively.

Like all beauty products, personal choice is a big factor but due to this product’s reputation for soothing problematic skin and its powder base, it makes a great choice for young women or those with oily, blemished skin. Women who are 35 years plus should tread carefully as powders can have an ageing effect.
