Pressed Mineral Foundation

Pressed Mineral Foundation is becoming more and more popular in the beauty scene. Why? There are many reasons for the increased interest in mineral makeup including the fact that there are no synthetic or artificial ingredients. The organic, natural composition makes a person’s skin feel fantastic while also deterring wrinkles. Better still pressed mineral makeup isn’t loose – meaning it’s less messy and easy for traveling.

Applying Pressed Mineral Makeup:

Pressed Mineral Foundation works a little differently than the average foundation. For women with dry skin, moisturizing before applying the compound is very important to getting the finished look desired. Additionally pressed mineral makeup shouldn’t be shoveled on – be stingy. You can always add a little more afterward if you feel there’s a need.

Generally start with your face well cleansed and apply the makeup from the outer edges of your face moving inward. Be careful to blend. For those with oily complexions you’ll be happy to know that this process keeps away that midday shine pretty neatly.

Benefits of Mineral Makeup:

Besides the positive attributes already discussed, mineral makeup has other benefits too including:
- Providing great coverage (better than liquid foundation)
- Healthy for your skin
- Ease of use
- Long lasting results
- Rich hues
- Conceals dark circles and age spots
- Some mineral makeup brands offer sun protection and water resistance
- Moisturizing and conditioning
- Hypo-allergenic
- No dyes or preservatives

Mineral makeup has been on the market for over 30 years. The terms “natural”, “mineral” and “organic” appear regularly on these brands which attracts the consumer looking for non-chemical alternatives to beauty care. However, not all mineral makeup is made equal and not all beauty experts are fans. For one thing minerals have been part of makeup for a long time, the only real difference is the lack of fragrance and binders. This difference can make pressed mineral makeup gentler on the skin. Many dermatologists feel that mineral makeup doesn’t clog pores and doesn’t irritate skin conditions like Rosacea. In terms of the various brands on the market some do indeed stay away from synthetic ingredients but some do NOT. It’s very important to read the ingredient list and not just the hype on the makeup’s packaging.
