Many people are choosing to use a makeup brand that is natural and won’t harm the skin. Mineral makeup has become a popular choice for people looking to use makeup while looking to avoid harmful chemicals and ingredients.
Mineral makeup covers the skin flawlessly. Most skin types (including sensitive) can handle a mineral makeup without having the skin flare up or looking patchy and red as it won’t irritate the skin.
Due to the high coverage ability due to the strong pigments in mineral makeup, people with acne/spots may not need a concealer before applying a mineral foundation or powder – the coverage is able to conceal any concerning spots due to the rich pigment. This means you need less mineral foundation than a standard foundation. You will find with a mineral makeup product there is no need to apply layer upon layer until your face has the desired coverage.
The lack of ingredients in mineral makeup is an advantage for your skin. Although the ingredients are minimal, they are better for your skin, last longer and more often than not, are all natural. The harmful ingredients traditional makeup companies use in their makeup products include:
- Sodium Laureth Sulphate/ Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS)
- Petroleum Distillates
Majority of mineral makeup brands do not use harmful ingredients, if they do, it tends to defeat the purpose of what mineral makeup is. Although, it is always best to check the ingredients in any makeup product (mineral or traditional) before making a purchase.
