Unless you've been living in a cave for the last few years, you've probably heard of the new, hot product on the makeup market – naked minerals. But you may not know what exactly naked minerals are, how they are used, and why they are superior to traditional makeup. In this article, we'll give you the scoop.
First, what are bare mineral products? Simply stated, they are products which use natural, finely powdered minerals to impart color and evenness to your skin. Unlike traditional makeup, naked mineral products do not use harsh chemical colorants. Therefore, many people find that they are less irritating and more beneficial to the skin.
Mineral makeup contains some all natural ingredients including finely powdered natural rocks and semi-precious stones, finely ground plant materials and extracts, and natural oils such as shea butter and olive oil. It is a surprise to notice that humans have been using natural colorant substances to naturally color their skins from times immemorial.
If you choose mineral makeup how to apply it correctly may be a change from what you normally do. Use the special brush supplied to pick up product with a circular motion from the package and then remove any excess by tapping in the side of the container. Apply the mineral makeup to the skin as smoothly as possible in a very light layer, as even as you can manage. Circular motions may help. Finally, you need to use the special buffer brush to polish and finish the application.
Bare minerals is radically different than ordinary makeup. Mineral makeup is completely natural – that means no artificial additives, preservatives, fillers, dyes, or synthetic coloring. Because of this, mineral products are more concentrated than traditional makeup, meaning you can use less to get the beautiful look you desire and save more money. It goes on feeling light, so you'll forget you're wearing makeup at all with bare minerals. It's easy and comfortable to wear.
There are several benefits to using an all-natural mineral-based makeup product over a traditional makeup filled with artificial ingredients. Because of the natural ingredients, naked minerals are comfortable to wear and irritant and allergy free. They are economical and easy to apply, even for people who do not have a lot of experience applying makeup. They provide long-reflecting and natural looking color.
