Why Mineral Makeup?

Women have had a love for makeup since the beginning of time. Our fascination with makeup begins as early as our toddler years, and as we grow up we eagerly learn new techniques and anticipate the introduction of new and better products. Makeup enhances us. It can transform our beauty, at just the touch of a brush. So, is there such a thing as the perfect makeup product? Probably not. Every woman has her own preference and perspective as to what is best. In the last decade, one makeup category that has gotten a ton of attention is mineral makeup. Many women know exactly what mineral makeup is. But, it is still so new that even those of us who have heard of it, we still don't know exactly what it is.

lets get started
In understanding what makes mineral makeup different or better, it's best to look at what traditional makeup is all about. So, yes traditional makeup continues to do externally what is was designed to do. That is to make us more beautiful. It does. Whether it's foundations, eye shadow, blushes, lipsticks and so forth, traditional makeup makes look better. But, it doesn't make all of us feel better.

Why is that? Well,traditional makeup is made from a mixture of ingredients derived from petrochemicals. That means makeup indirectly comes from petroleum, you know oil. That doesn't make if bad, but it can cause skin problems and irritations for many women. We all know that the ozone layer has thinned out over time, which leads to so many more skin sensitivities. And, there is a proliferation of the occurrences of skin cancer. More than ever. And, this is an area that mineral makeup truly excels.

The two main ingredients in mineral makeup are titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. Sound familiar? Sure. Those are the typical ingredients that you see in sun protection products. So, yes mineral makeup gives you automatic, natural protection from the harmful sun rays, which with the thinning of the ozone layers have only gotten more harmful over the years. Mineral makeup is a purer concentrate for makeup. That means it's better for your skin and less likely to cause skin irritations and rashes. Traditional makeup traditionally is chock full of fillers, synthetic materials, preservatives and various fragrances. Traditional makeup is also typically heavier on your skin and therefore a bit uncomfortable too. Mineral makeup is made from finely crushed titanium dioxide and firmly crushed zinc oxide. This mixture is light, airy and filled with natural protection for your skin.

You know what the best feature is for mineral makeup? No, it's not that it's good for you. It's that it makes you look better. Really mineral makeup makes your skin look prettier. It's all those finely ground titanium dioxide and ground zinc oxide. They fill up the tiny little nooks and crannies in your skin and give you a better finish than either traditional makeup, and as light as no makeup. So, if I had to choose one product that was the end all, be all, best product.... It would be something in the mineral makeup category. Something that was good for my skin, but more importantly, made me look better. That's a winner!!
