Mineral makeup has been making a huge impression on the cosmetics industry in the past few years. Large companies are springing up and making a difference in the products that we are putting on our face. So how do you choose whether to use a mineral based make up or a traditional makeup?
Mineral based makeup is a natural makeup using the goodness from the earth. It has many positive qualities that could put it in the front of your selection list.
One of the main ones is the fact that the minerals are good for your skin. Here are some of the ingredients good mineral makeup has it, without any harmful chemical ingredients…
•Titanium Dioxide has waterproof and sun protection properties while providing a beautiful matte look.
•Mica has some transparent properties and enables the makeup to go on smoothly
•Iron Oxides give the makeup its pigmentation
•Zinc Oxide is known for its healing properties in problem skin such as rosacea and acne and can actually calm irritated skin. It tends to stay on even while sweating and swimming as well as providing additional natural protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays.
Another quality to mineral makeup is that it does not clog pores. It helps keep your skin clean and clear which can reduce irritation and acne in most people.
Mineral makeup is great for sensitive skin. Women that have suffered from irritation from chemicals in makeup know how hard it is to find a good product their face can love. Minerals, because of their purity, have been a choice to those with sensitive skin for a long time.
Mineral Makeup gives your face great coverage. Whether you like light coverage or heavier coverage, you can get the look you want with the mineral makeup. You can alter the amount of product you use to get the flawless coverage you love. It makes your face smooth and soft. It never cakes or settles in your lines. In fact, with continued usage, some lines and wrinkles may be buffed over and not seen. Liquid makeup tends to settle in a wrinkle or line and actually makes them more prominent.
With these great qualities, it is hard to come up with reasons to use traditional makeup any more. Thankfully, beauty companies have been converting the traditional makeup into mineral based makeup. Some products still have a long way to go as far as using only pure minerals, but they are getting better. Using harsh chemicals on your face is fast becoming not acceptable any more.
