Today at STYLEanthropy, we’re talking about beauty and the hottest in cosmetics, Mineral Makeup! A lot of Mineral Makeup products are popping here and there these days. So I did my research and I figured I’d share what I learned about these beauty products with you.
The hottest cosmetics in Hollywood today is Mineral Makeup. Brands like Bare Minerals, Josie Maran, Laura Mercier, Revlon and Cover FX are just some of the hottest brands of mineral makeup today. Now many others are following suit and releasing their own. There is this notion that the concept of mineral makeup has already been introduced way back in the 1970s. But it is only now that it is starting to boom.
Mineral Makeup is Hot! But is it Good?
A lot of people have been asking about mineral makeup and why it’s hot and trending. Over the years, people tend to be more health conscious. That is the very reason why mineral makeup is becoming famous – because it claims to be all natural. If it’s coming from the earth, then it must be good. Thus, it has caught a lot of attention.
But the question is – is it really that good?
It has no special health or beauty properties. Its main ingredients include minerals like mica, zinc oxide, and titanium dioxide which have been the basis of most makeup foundations for decades.
So why buy it?
- Unlike regular cosmetics, it gets rid of classic irritants like fragrance, dyes, binders, and preservatives. If you have sensitive skin, then you may have been staying away from any makeup at all. But with the mineral makeup that doesn’t include all those harsh chemicals and fragrance, it’s probably high time you can start wearing makeup!
- This is also perfect for those who suffer breakouts due to irritants found in regular makeup.
- Also, most of these beauty products already include SPF. So it’s a nice way of protecting your face from the sun.
- Finally, a lot of users claim that it stays longer and covers up unwanted spots pretty well.
If you ever plan on buying one, make sure that you get an “all mineral makeup” that can attest to its name. Because there’s no solid line as to what mineral makeup really is, a lot of companies are marketing their products as mineral makeup even if it’s not. What do I mean?
The thing is, almost all cosmetics contain even the slightest amount of minerals. So there are those that just add a mineral ingredient and claim it’s a mineral makeup even if it has a lot of artificial ingredients added to it. What you should be looking for is an all mineral makeup if you want an all natural makeup. No artificial sumthin’ sumthin’ please.
So make sure when you jump in on the bandwagon, read the label first. Not because it says “mineral”, does it mean that they don’t add in artificial ingredients. In short, do your homework before you buy. Research!
