For years now, we have been told that we should be adding mineral products into our makeup kits. Everyone from our facialist to our mum has been telling us that mineral makeup is the way to go, but what exactly is it?

Well, we wanted to give you the answers you have been looking for.

Mineral makeup is a form of cosmetic made up of, you guessed it, compressed minerals. These minerals are naturally derived ingredients that are packed with skincare benefits, making them perfect for sensitive skin.

Minerals like zinc oxide, iron oxide, titanium dioxide, mica and ultramarine are ground up into ultra fine particles and used to create cosmetic products. On their own, these minerals are loaded with benefits for the skin. When combined, they help to form cosmetic products that truly are an extension of your skincare routine.

Naturally luminous, the ingredients used in mineral makeup help to catch the light, giving you that signature healthy glow, only achievable with mineral products.

Not to brag, but one of our favourite things about mineral makeup is that it acts as a natural sunscreen, helping to protect your skin from potential sun damage. Titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are both key ingredients in mineral makeup and are amazing natural UV blockers. Packed with superpowers, these ingredients are also anti-inflammatory and healing for the skin. This means that mineral makeup is safe to use on all skin types, including those with acne or rosacea.

Did we mention mineral makeup contains no parabens, toxins or phthalates? This means that no matter how sensitive your skin may be, you are in safe hands.

Ok so now you’ve heard about the benefits of mineral makeup, we know what you’re thinking, “How does it look?”. The answer: Flawless.

Due to the fine milling process, mineral makeup is incredibly lightweight with a buildable coverage, making sure there is no cakey finish. Designed to enhance your natural beauty, rather than mask it, mineral makeup is a safe and beautiful addition to your makeup collection.

If you are new to mineral makeup, we have put together the ultimate Foundation Starter Pack, complete with one of our mineral foundations, kabuki brush and hydrating mist, this is the perfect way to get started with mineral makeup.
