Mineral makeup has not always had the best reputation. In the past, it was associated it with a chalky, grainy texture and a full on mask like effect. It was quite heavy on the skin and not as easy to work with… But times have changed and a lot! Mineral makeup has never been more innovative, creative and sought-after, and for good reason. So how is it made? Well, minerals such as mica, zinc and titanium oxide are milled to a super-fine consistency, and this is then combined with pigment. Also, as well known, that we wont find any oils, waxes, preservatives, synthetic fragrances or bulking agents that are used by traditional cosmetics. Mineral makeup really does go a lot further, and the more you wear it, the better your skin gets. So why would not you want to switch up from traditional to mineral makeup?
It is safe.
