In recent few years, a new trend has cropped up in the makeup world. It is called Mineral makeup. Top 5 Mineral Makeup Products is topic, I am exploring today. Many of us are still unaware as to what this mineral makeup hype is all about. Read on this article to know more about it.. Well, mineral makeup is a relatively new line of makeup products that are supposed to contain natural minerals and plant derivatives that are good for skin. The natural components do not clog the pores / non comedogenic, as a result, they keep skin oil free and acne free and also take care of skin issues like Redness and eczema. They do not contain synthetic components like : Synthetic oils, waxes, Fragrances, Silicones and Parabens, synthetic pigments and dyes and preservatives. Most of them happen to contain oxides of Minerals such as Iron / Zinc / titanium and talc. Also, the components can be very finely milled to provide excellent, buildable coverage without harming your skin in any way. Infact, good quality mineral makeup lasts longer on your face than it’s synthetic/ cosmetic counterpart and has a way better shelf life. It also discourages bacterial growth. It covers blemishes more perfectly and does not settle into fine lines too.
