Mineral Makeup Tips

By Endy Wong

Do you use any mineral makeup? What brand do you like the best and why? OK, let's talking mainly about the foundation powders.

Mary Kay loose powder. Ive been used it. It supposed to be better for the skin. (I have very sensitive skin.) When I put it on, my face started itching a little, but it went away after 5 minutes or so. It's possibly because of the brush I used Or the minerals. Also, my face felt stiff, like it was too dry.

Burts Bees Concealer. Its ingredients are castor oil, sunflower oil, beeswax, vitamin E, candelila wax, cucumber extract,rosemary extract, and minerals for the color. It is a cream. You could dot it where you need it.

Everyday Minerals. It covers great and last almost the whole day and not itch at all. The BE would cause to itch a little, only for like 15 seconds. The everyday minerals don't itch at all. They do not have talc. They have different formulations (matte, semi-matte, intense etc), They really kill the shine on my oily skin, and the best part, you could get more product than with BE at a fraction of the price ($8 for the smaller container of foundation which costs $25 for BE. The larger container is $12).

Bare Naturals. It is every bit as good as the Bare Minerals brand and alot cheaper. As far as mineral makeup, it is so fast and easy to use which makes my morning makeup routine better. Also, it doesn't feel greasy or pasty on your skin.

Ada Cosmetics Mineral Makeup. It could makes the skin look beautiful and it's so light that you even would not feel it.

Compare to Bare Minerals and Sheer Cover, it wouldn't been looked awful on your skin, or made you look ashy as if you were going to be buried in a casket or something. :(

The idea behind mineral makeup is that its supposed to be 'pure' and good for your skin. But unfortuantely some companies that produce mineral makeup add talc, bismuth or 'fillers' to make the minerals go further. Your mineral makeup should only have a few ingredients. Like Mica, oxides, and sometimes kaoline.

A really neat little trick I learned is that if you mix your minerals with a little bit of your moisturizer, you can make a nice cream foundation for anyone with dry skin who dont like the 'look' of the loose minerals. Another thing Ive learned is to buff like crazy. I read somewhere that its sort of like how most guys will buff and buff and BUFF the wax on a car to get that perfect polished finish. Also apply the minerals lightly, you can go back and add more if you need to. It doesnt take much with minerals

Mineral Makeup Advantages

By Mike Jeromez

There are many advantages to using mineral makeup. Found out why you should use bare minerals makeup!

Reason 1: Low Moisture
One of the biggest advantages of using bare minerals makeup is that because mineral makeup contains no moisture it will not allow bacteria to form and multiply. Mineral makeup is made up entirely of dry minerals in a powder form. You may have noticed that regular makeup has an expiration date on it. Can you guess why? It's because standard makeup is made with oils and other liquids that are full of moisture and are practically a breeding ground for bacteria. Mineral makeup obviously does not have this problem. There is also another benefit of the lack of moisture in mineral makeup... it will last much longer! You see, when you sweat or oil from your skin comes into contact with traditional makeup, it increases the moisture that's already in the makeup and causes it to pretty much drip off of your face. Mineral makeup on the other hand, does not have this problem. Because it is a dry powder, it is able to safely absorb this extra moisture and will last all day long!

Reason 2: Healthy Skin
Did you know that traditional makeup contains perfumes, dyes, and other chemicals that are harmful to your skin? Many makeups even contain a chemical to make you look younger... do you know how it makes you look younger? It is designed to remove the top layer of your skin! Mineral makeup is make from pure natural minerals that come straight from the earth. It does not contain any of these harmful chemicals. Also, because it is a dry powder and does not promote the growth of bacteria, it can also help prevent breakouts and irritation. Another benefit of bare minerals makeup is that it acts as a natural sunscreen, blocking harmful UV rays. Many people who have used mineral makeup have reported an increase in skin health, even when they have only used it for a brief period.
