Mineral Make-Up

Mineral Make-Up

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
  • rich consistency
  • water-resistance
  • alleviates redness
  • 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

  1. Before applying mineral make-up the skin must be dry without any traces of moisture residue. Thus, it is important to let your moisturiser absorb into the skin before application.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
