Hello! Today I want to talk about mineral makeup. Are you using mineral makeup? What is your favorite brand?
I have started to use mineral makeup about 1 year ago. At that time I was entirely re-thinking the way I choose and use cosmetics. Unfortunately (or not?), I can't eliminate makeup from my life so at least I decided to use mineral makeup as a way to eliminate nasty chemicals from my daily makeup routine.
Mineral makeup from Everyday Minerals has a very simple formulation. The base I am using as foundation contains only mica, titanium dioxide, iron oxides and ultramarines. It is the simplest formula I have found so far and I like it a lot. It feels very light on the skin, looks so natural and yet provides the coverage I need. I am using the IT base in the shade called multi-tasking neutral which is matching perfectly my fair skin with pink undertones.
As a bronzer, I am using the soft bronzer which is a translucent powder very effective in giving a healthy glow to my fair skin. I usually tap a small amount of bronzing powder into the lid and apply it all over my cheeks, forehead, nose and chin (+ lightly underneath my neck) with a powder brush.
The final touch of this mineral makeup routine is the finishing powder. It really helps to stay shine-free all day long. The one I am using is the sunlight finishing dust. I just tap a bit of powder into the lid and apply it all over the face. I also use it with a smaller brush as a setting powder on top of my concealer or eye shadows.
How do I get Everyday Minerals products? Living in Singapore, it is very expensive for me to order directly from Everyday Minerals website. Recently, I have found an online retailer which carry Everyday Minerals and offer low shipping fees: iHerb. In addition, iHerb is offering up to $10.00 off your first order if you use this coupon code CNS877.
I hope this post will help you to find the best makeup for your skin. Let me know if you decide to try Everyday Minerals products!
