Most women know, or at least have heard that mineral cosmetics are all–natural and good for their skin.
However, still too many are still hesitant to make a switch from traditional cosmetics.
SO what are the reasons to use mineral make up . . .
Mineral make up contains ingredients that are naturally antibacterial and nourishing. It is enriched with vitamins and plant extracts, therefore it won’t irritate your skin. It actually helps to treat inflamed skin and reduce redness.
It is suitable for all skin types, even sensitive ones.
It is extremely light, doesn’t block pores and allows skin to breathe.
It is much more versatile than most make up of course when it is done right. The loose powder pigments are what companies use to colour cosmetics. It can be used as eye shadow, eyeliner, lip gloss, hair highlights, colored mascara, nail polish, body shimmer, blush etc. When working with the pure pigment it can blend with almost anything.
Mineral make up can illuminate your face and bring out your natural beauty.
A big difference between traditional make up and mineral make up is that mineral cosmetics don’t normally use filters like talc, binders, chemical dyes or chemical preservatives.
It also doesn’t encourage bacterial growth, which means there isn’t the same risk of contamination as there can be with traditional make up.
4. Shelf life
It is because of its low contamination composition that it also often has a longer shelf life. In addition, many of the ingredients used in mineral make up promote stability.
Sometimes there is no expiry date shown on the packaging, instead you can find the symbol of an opened jar with a period of time on it to show how long after opening it can still be used.
5. Long lasting
Traditional make up can sometimes tend to either melt or rub off with the impact of climate conditions such as heat and rain. Mineral make up can often be more resistant and long lasting.
A little bit of mineral make up can go a long way, if applied correctly, so apply a little at a time until you reach the desired coverage that is right for you.
