Because mineral makeup is made with healthy minerals and natural pigments, it does not clog your pores as and doesn't penetrate the skin. Your skin will stay healthier because it is able to breathe. With mineral cosmetics you can create sheer coverage and a flawless finish without disturbing your skin.
Pure mineral makeup contains no fragrances or chemicals, which can damage and irritate your skin with long-term use. The minerals also work to protect your skin against free radicals.
Because there are no fillers or chemicals in mineral makeup, it has a longer shelf life than traditional cosmetics. Without chemicals, the products don't harbor bacteria and go bad.
Mineral based makeup can be very versatile. You can use a mineral foundation powder in a variety of ways. You can mix it with water or moisturizer to create a creamy foundation, or use alone as a powder. You have the ability to add more powder or liquid to get the consistency and coverage you desire.
Applying mineral based bronzer, blush, eyeshadow and other mineral makeup is done in the same way - swirling your brush and using light layers. The pigments in mineral makeup products are very concentrated - so remember a little goes a long way.
