The Benefits of Using Mineral Makeup


What you put on your face plays a key role in the health and appearance of your skin. 

You’ve likely heard that mineral makeup is great for skin health – but what are the benefits? And do these products compete with traditional makeup products in terms of coverage, lasting power and finish?

Let’s find out!


What’s in your makeup?

While you may use great skincare and have regular facials, some makeup ingredients can undo all your hard work!⁠ 

Traditional makeup products can contain a lot of hidden nasties that may be particularly damaging for those prone to redness, sensitivity, congestion and acne. Ingredients like perfumes, artificial colours, dyes and preservatives can be highly irritating and comedogenic, meaning they can block your pores and leave your skin feeling worse for wear.

Choosing your makeup wisely is an important step in achieving your dream complexion. ⁠By opting for more natural products, you can support the health of your skin and ensure your face looks amazing too! 


Benefits of Mineral Makeup

Mineral makeup offers a huge range of benefits for the skin including:

  • Great for sensitive skin

Sensitive skin? The good news is mineral makeup is usually free of many irritants known to cause redness, inflammation and other reactions. This is great news for anyone who is sensitive to fragrance, dyes and preservatives.

  • Non-comedogenic

Acne-skin, rejoice! Mineral makeup is non-comedogenic, which means it won’t clog your pores. Unlike traditional makeup products that can cause breakouts and congestion, mineral makeup is enriched with ingredients like clay and zinc that help to calm and balance your complexion.

  • Includes SPF

Most mineral makeup contains titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. These ingredients are included in physical sunscreens to shield the skin from UV rays. While we always recommend applying SPF underneath, your mineral makeup will also help prevent premature ageing, fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation and other forms of sun damage.  

  • Lightweight and great coverage

Love that ultra-lightweight feel? Mineral makeup provides great coverage without that heavy feeling! Not only is it lightweight and breathable, but coverage can also be gradually built up to achieve your desired look. 

There is a common misconception that if makeup is good for your skin, it won’t deliver the coverage, lasting power and finish that you desire. But we’re here to bust that myth!⁠ Take a look at how amazing our clients’ skin looks with a light layer of mineral makeup…
