Whether we are talking about foundation, blush, compact powder or eyeshadows, it is clear that mineral make-up has become more trendy during the past few years. But little do we know that mineral make-up is an age-old beauty trick that was used in ancient Egypt by women to enhance their facial features.
Mineral make-up is an ancient beauty secret but that does not mean that it not effective. The natural raw materials used to create these beauty products are beneficial for the skin and offer a potent alternative to their counterparts. Because mineral make-up is exceptionally gentle on the skin it is an excellent make-up substitute for those who suffer from skin problems such as acne, facial erythrosis and the like. Mineral-based make-up offers the following benefits:
ensures a glowing appearance
reduces visible wrinkles for a smoother, more even complexion
well-tolerated by various skin types
does not clog the pores
low risk of allergic reactions
colourant-free, preservative-free, oil-free
Application is key
Before applying mineral make-up it is essential that the skin is dry without any traces of moisture residue. Thus, it is important to let your moisturiser absorb into the skin before application.
To select your matching shade, do a colour match test by stroking the product along the side of the jawbone down towards the neck. Observe the colour outcome in natural light.
Only a small amount of mineral make-up is needed to create a flawless look. Use a make-up brush to apply thin layers of product to the skin. Buff the product into the skin for excellent results.
