Mineral Makeup FAQ
Why should I switch to mineral makeup?
Mineral makeup is perfect for all skin types and has tremendous benefits over traditional synthetic makeup products. Mineral makeup can help to soothe your skin while promoting better skin condition and health overall. In addition, the clean, smooth coverage will make your face radiant and your natural, healthy glow will shine through without chemicals or heavy fillers blocking the way.
I have sensitive skin. Can I use mineral makeup?
Mineral makeup is perfect for those with sensitive skin. The natural ingredients in the cosmetics are free of all chemical agents including dyes and fragrances which tend to cause outbreaks and irritation with sensitive skin. In fact, mineral makeup might help to soothe sensitive skin as many of the most common ingredients are known to have healing and rejuvenating properties.
I have dry skin; should I use mineral makeup?
Mineral makeup actually helps to remove excess oil and moisture from the skin preventing clogged pores and breakouts. If your skin is already dry, you should use a thin layer of a lightweight moisturizer at least thirty minutes before you apply your makeup to be sure your skin’s moisture layer is protected.
How to apply mineral makeup?
You apply mineral makeup in much the same way you did your traditional makeup. Brushes will help you apply a powder foundation, blush and concealer. A small brush will help you apply eyeshadow and a pointed brush can help with eyeliner. Mineral makeup does cover lightly, so certain brushes can help achieve a heavier coverage if this is what you prefer.
Which brushes work best with mineral makeup?
A standard set of brushes should be fine. You’ll need a large brush for a powdered foundation, a blush brush and a few small brushes for eyeshadow, liner and lips. You might also opt for a concealer brush. A special kabuki brush is a large brush that helps you achieve a thicker coating of mineral makeup if you’re interested in pulling together an evening look that is a bit heavier than your daytime regime.
Can I really sleep in mineral makeup?
Sleeping in makeup means you are not following a healthy skin care routine. We encourage you to properly clean and condition your face at the end of every day. However, if you should fall asleep in mineral makeup, you can rest assured it won’t cause redness or clogged pores. This is because mineral makeup is non-comedogenic.
Is mineral makeup dangerous?
If any cosmetics are dangerous, it is the synthetic versions of cosmetics that are sold all over the world. Many chemicals including toxins and known carcinogens are found in makeup products. Mineral makeup does not contain any of these unnatural ingredients. The only ingredient that might bother some is bismuth oxycholoride. Bismuth oxycholoride is a natural byproduct of lead and copper processing, and has been known to irritate skin. Bismuth oxycholoride is found in some mineral makeup, but those that hold themselves to the highest standards of natural production do not include the mineral as it is not directly from the Earth.
