If you’ve paid attention to the makeup scene in recent years, you’ve probably heard a lot about mineral makeup! Below we’ve shared everything you need to know about mineral makeup and how to implement it into your daily makeup routine.


What Is Mineral Makeup?

Mineral makeup is made primarily of minerals. The minerals are typically found in the earth and sea. Most companies choose chemicals that are very skin-compatible and natural. Most include ingredients like mica, titanium oxide and zinc. The minerals are milled into a fine consistency and combined with pigments. These formulas typically leave out heavy oils, waxes, synthetic fragrances, preservatives or bulking agents.

What Are the Perks of Using Mineral Makeup?

The focus on limited ingredients draws many people to mineral makeup. According to industry experts, mineral make-up is kinder and gentler to sensitive skin. Most mineral makeup products are preservative free and non-comedogenic, meaning they don’t clog pores. Debris and blocked pores are the primary sources of breakouts. Since minerals are natural, they are extremely versatile. When refined into makeup, minerals can easily build coverage and hide imperfections while evening skin tone.

What Are Some Disadvantages of Mineral Makeup

Mineral make-up gets a bad rap for being messy, difficult to apply and easy to spill. Also, if you need to build up heavier coverage, you may not want to spend time applying layers of powder on your face. Mineral makeup companies are addressing these concerns and are increasingly creating packaging and formulas that minimize mess and make application easier.


What Kind of Products Are Available?

Mineral makeup products range from traditional loose powders to liquid foundation. Some brands also produce tinted moisturizers! Mineral makeup has evolved over the past few years and now caters to pretty much every part of your makeup routine. If you have dry skin, a liquid formula may be the best solution for you, while oily complexions will benefit from powders. Be sure to invest in a dense, short-handled brush to ensure expert application.
