Mineral Makeup is Fun and good for you too !!

Well for us girls it is - you boy readers can just take a nap right about now, ok ?

Mineral Makeup, what did we do before someone discovered this stuff ?

I could never go back to the heavy, gloppy stuff I used to smear on my face for the sake of looking better. Better my arse. It looked bad, made my skin look bad and made me look older.

Mineral makeup - and by this I mean true mineral makeup, the kind with only a few key ingredients, not the drug store stuff with a list of junk additives 5 lines long. This kind of makeup can actually be better for your skin than NO makeup. Really.

Mineral makeup serves to protect your skin from ultraviolet rays as well as dirt and dust. It lays gently upon the skin without clogging pores or causing breakouts.

If you have had a bad experience with a "mineral makeup" product then take a look at the ingredient list. If it contains more than 3-5 mineral ingredients there is your problem. Also look for the name "Bismuth Oxychloride" as a possible trigger for itching and rashes - it is a shimmer agent in many big name products and can cause irritation for many users.

Mineral foundation is the beneficial side but the fabulous colors for eyes is the FUN side.

Wow, even if you don't wear much makeup or don't experiment with colors you could still find something wonderful in the mineral world to compliment your eye color without looking overdone.

Mineral makeup is so versatile in that it can go on sheer as a silk veil or wet it and use a sharp angle brush and get an intense eyeliner color that lasts all day and night.

More on choosing eye makeup colors in the next post.
