Mineral Make-up knows how to shine


In case you haven't already noticed, mineral makeup has taken the cosmetics world by storm. Everyday, you see advertisements for it on television and now every cosmetics company in existence offers some variation on the mineral foundation. With this, mineral foundation is now available in a variety of price ranges (and qualities). Gone are the days of sponges and messy foundations, base-lines and streaky cheeks. Mineral make-up has completely revolutionized the way we think about make up. Mineral makeupproducts are some of the best selling products on the market and it’s no coincidence that women love them.


What is mineral make-up and how is it different from liquid make-up? Technically, mineral make-up is anyskin care product that is made from natural minerals that have been ground into tiny particles. Two minerals that are most commonly found in mineral foundations are zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. Mineral make-up is most commonly used and sold in the form of a foundation that is applied with a large, dry brush, otherwise known as a kabuki brush.


Liquid make-up and mineral make-up do contain many of the same ingredients. However, they create an entirely different result. The obvious difference between mineral make-up and liquid make-up is that, well, one is a powder and the other is a liquid. With liquid make up, you often receive excellent coverage and it is applied with your fingertips or with a sponge. You can't go wrong with liquid make-up. However, liquid make-up can be difficult to blend as well as difficult to match the perfect shade to your skin. This all too common combination is what creates splotchy and uneven results as well as those dreaded 'base lines'.Mineral makeup, on the other hand, is applied with a brush and is lightly dusted onto your face. Mineral make-up provides velvety, moderate coverage and it is very quick and easy to apply. Because it's a powder, it is easy to blend and you can control the amount of coverage by applying more product.


Many also claim that mineral make-up is better and healthier for your skin. Because of the natural ingredients, mineral make-up has a reputation for benefiting the look and feel of the skin. There is little to prove whether or not this is actually the case. However, it is true that some varieties of mineral make-up are more 'pure' than others. So when choosing a mineral make-up for yourself, look for those brands that do not use chemicals and preservatives when engineering theirskin care products .


Mineral make-up is also known to be dryer on the skin than liquid make-up. Many women are often concerned that the oil in their liquid make-up could cause break outs. It is true that the components of make-up can lead to clogged pores. Mineral make-up will not cause break-outs due to excess oil in the product. However, like any make-up, mineral make-up must be properly washed from the skin in order to promote skin health and to prevent acne.
