A day doesn’t go by without beauty experts praising the latest innovations in skincare and beauty, however one makeup revolution that seems to have only just received growing popularity has actually been around for plenty of years now – mineral makeup. Favoured by skincare experts and makeup artists alike, mineral makeup from Gerrard International has been described as the future of beauty due to its unique 100% mineral enriched formula that works in harmony with the skin rather than against it.
Regular makeup can often contain a number of synthetic ingredients such as parabens, talc and fillers or binders. These synthetic ingredients can block the pores – irritating skin that is sensitive or rosacea and acne prone skin as a result. Mineral makeup however is completely free from synthetic materials, and enriched with minerals which work to actively energise and revitalise your complexion.
Unlike other makeup, mineral makeup can help to soothe sensitive or acne and rosacea prone skin. The natural ingredients not only provide long-lasting coverage but the unique mineral formula lets the skin breathe while protecting it from any environmental irritants – to ensure skin is soothed all day long.
Another quality that makes mineral makeup a skincare revolution is the makeup’s ability to protect the skin against the sun. With such an emphasis on sun protection in today’s makeup collections, the ability to both soothe the skin while acting as barrier between harmful UV rays shows just how innovative mineral makeup really is.
Professional mineral makeup brands such Mii Cosmetics feature a complete line of mineral makeup such as foundation, eye colours, bronzers and illuminators. Eye colours provide a rich colour as well as protection to the delicate eye area while bronzers ensure a healthy sun-kissed glow while preventing any damage caused by the sun.
The trick to applying mineral makeup is to gently buff the mineral powder around the face, gradually building up coverage and colour. Not only does mineral makeup replenish required mineral levels in the skin, the colour rich formula ensures a full and long lasting coverage and that the skin remains protected from the elements as well as any harmful UV rays.
