I first started using mineral makeup over 17 years ago and have used no other type of foundation since. I was easily converted. I stopped getting clogged pores and found that my makeup stayed on longer and didn’t wear off throughout the day. It’s very dewy and makes your complexion translucent. I once worked with a therapist for a few months before she realised that I actually wore any foundation at all. It looks that natural! I even wore it on my wedding day. That’s how good the coverage is. At Talking Beauty we believe that everyone will benefit from using mineral makeup. But you should be aware that not all mineral makeup is created equally. There is some nasty stuff out there that you need to avoid.
Over the years we have watched as mineral makeup has become popular and more available. It’s no longer something that can just be purchased at the beauty salon. Many companies now sell mineral makeup at your local chemist, supermarket and department stores. Here are some tips to remember when purchasing a good quality Mineral makeup. The feel of the makeup is very important. When you feel a good quality mineral makeup, it is soft and silky. There are now many inferior mineral makeups out there containing harsh clay as the mineral base. These makeups will feel much grainier to touch, are comedogenic and can be very irritating to the skin. When you take your makeup off at the end of the day you may be left with dryness or inflammation. So always ask yourself if you’re getting what you’re paying for. A good mineral makeup should give you no issues at all.
We have tried and tested many mineral makeups for you. Earlier in the year we started offering Youngblood in the salon. It’s been amazing and there are quite a few different options for you to choose from. Liquid, loose and even a creme to powder. The pure, natural minerals are finely milled for a weightless, adjustable coverage that leaves you with a soft and luxurious feel and finish. And it’s easy to apply! So, so easy you won’t believe it! Think of mineral makeup as a compliment to your skin care. Especially if you are already using Dermaviduals which has no nasties, Youngblood will insure that you are getting no harmful ingredients into your skin cells. It’s free of fragrance, oil, talc, parabens and artificial dyes. It’s perfect for all skin types, even sensitive and acneic skins. In fact, it really helps to reduce redness and makes spots and discolorations easy to hide without adding to the inflammation.
