7 Facts About Mineral Foundation That Will Change The Way You Think About Makeup

We’re not surprised to find that mineral makeup is becoming more and more sought after. Why? Because it’s a total game-changer. Makeup that’s actually good for your skin, who doesn’t want that?

If you’re new to the mineral makeup game and wondering what all the fuss is about, don’t worry. We’ve got you coveredand so does mineral foundation. If you’ve tried mineral makeup before and didn’t love the coverage, trust us, the technology has come a long way in terms of mineral formulas, the coverage you can get these days is stunning. 

Signs it’s time for a new foundation 

  • When you remove your makeup your skin is red and a little irritated.
  • Your foundation is making your skin break out, or you have breakouts but are yet to find the underlying cause. 
  • You want full coverage, but it tends to end up looking cakey. 
  • You’ve got your skincare routine down to a fine art, but you’re yet to consider how much your makeup could be affecting your skin. Guilty as charged! 

Mineral makeup is non-comedogenic, which means it won’t clog your pores

Texture on your skin is totally normal. However, switching to a mineral foundation is a no-brainer if you struggle with enlarged open pores and excess oil. Mineral makeup will give you a radiant finish without clogging your pores. *adds to cart* 

Mineral makeup won’t cause breakouts

Preservatives? Nope.

Parabens? Don’t know her.

Fragrance? That’s so last year.

Talc? I’m insulted you asked.

Mineral oil? More like mineral spoil. 

Okay, that last one was a bit cringe, BUT the point is mineral makeup is free from all the nasties that can cause breakouts, redness and inflammation. It allows your skin to breathe, so you can cover existing breakouts without worrying about doing more damage or prolonging the healing process. If you’re blemish-prone, mineral makeup could be your key to clear skin.

Mineral makeup is a dream for sensitive skin 

Are you a true sensitive skin type?

Maybe your skin is temporarily sensitised?

If the answer is option b, I’m going to go ahead and tell myself your skin is a little sensitised because you just had skin needling (yes queenie!), not because you’re still washing your face with a bar of soap (I’m not mad, just disappointed). 

No matter the cause of your sensitivety, mineral makeup is your new go-to.

Not only will mineral makeup effortlessly cover your redness, but you can also apply it confidently, knowing it’s good for your skin!  

Mineral makeup = Makeup with benefits

Mineral Makeup has built-in sunscreen 

Our mineral radiance foundation contains Titanium Dioxide & Zinc Oxide. Both are natural sun protectants that deflect the sun’s harmful rays, preventing premature ageing, dark spots and wrinkles. We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again, daily sun protection is a non-negotiable for great skin health

Not only will your skin feel good – It will look good too

If you’re yet to try our Mineral Radiance Foundation, get ready for flawless, radiant, silky goodness. Our mineral makeup is highly pigmented, so a little goes a long way. We love that for 2 reasons!

  1. It lasts longer.

  2. It never looks cakey. 

If you like a dewy, soft finish, go for our Mineral Radiance Cream Mineral Foundation.

Prefer a matte, silky finish? You’re going to love our Mineral Radiance Loose Foundation.

You can customise your coverage 

If full coverage isn’t your thing and you’re looking for that makeup-free look, you have to try this. Tap our Loose Mineral Radiance Foundation into your hand and add 3 pumps of R3 Relieve Repair Restore. Mix it together and apply it to your skin in gentle upwards motions. A DIY tinted moisturiser, if you will. The more loose minerals you add, the more coverage you’ll get. Simple.

You can thank us for the stunning results later. 

Top tip! All of our mineral makeup is completely blendable. Try mixing 2 shades together to create your perfect shade all year round or using a lighter/darker shade to contour and highlight.


Mineral makeup is an extension of your skincare

Many of us put a lot of careful thought and consideration into our skincare routine but are yet to consider our makeup. Mineral makeup can assist with treating breakouts, rosacea, dehydration and excess oil production. Introduce mineral makeup as the final step in your skincare routine.
