Mineral Makeup 101

Mineral Makeup has taken the beauty world by storm. In the biggest beauty trend ever, it has gone from a little known and tiny portion of the beauty market to full mainstream.

Here is the info to get you started, or to answer any questions or problems you may be having.

Mineral Makeup

Once an exclusive boutique item, mineral foundations and makeup are available everywhere now, from those boutiques to the drugstore, even Wal-Mart and an abundance of choices online. In addition to foundations, there are finishing powders, blush, face colors and high lighters, bronzers, eye shadows, eye liners, mascaras, lip products and now even skin care.

But, are they all created equal?
Absolutely not! Your choice in products will be dictated in your primary purpose in using them. Do you want them because they are more natural or do you just want to look the best you can?

The first foundations contained only a few ingredients and there are still many formulas like that. Other companies added in "good for you" skin care ingredients. To transform the formulas for the mass drugstore market, companies began to add more chemicals, fillers and preservatives. Many fans and purists do not feel these are are on the same level as the more traditional products - that they are simply "mineral added" makeups.

The decision is yours. The aim of this website is to provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decisions with the end result being a makeup that you love and that looks wonderful on you. The choices are not easy anymore! Here is more information to help you out:
