What makes a mineral foundation amazing?
How do you know you are choosing the best mineral foundation?
- the best color match
- the best coverage/finish (do you love sheer or matte?)
- the best quality for the health of your skin
When you shop for mineral makeup there are a few things to look out for that will make sure you are making a great choice for your skin.
A formulation that is FREE from cheap and nasty fillers and ingredients that may irritate your skin or be of questionable saftey including:
- bismuth oxychloride
- magnesium stearate
- boron nitride
- corn/ maize and rice starch
- nano particles
- soy bean flour (it's true - check out some of the cheaper brands!)
- all of the "paraben" ingredients
If you ingredient listing is long and sounds like you need a degree in chemistry to decode the words, then take the time to question the ingredients: are they there for the benefit of your skin - or for the profit margin of the brand?
Remember - any makeup can be called MINERAL MAKEUP - it is up to you to choose a beautiful, safe and quality product.
Once we have found a pure brand of mineral makeup - let's look at colour and finish. Do you have oily or dry skin...do you love a matte finish or a very natural finish? You will not get it all in just one foundation.
If there is only one type of foundation to choose from there is a chance that this is not best for your skin - some formulas look amazing on oily skin - and not dry, and vice versa.
If there are a large number of colours to choose from, you can probably get a perfect match. Do they offer free samples...would they create a custom colour just for YOU if needed...keep it on file, and blend it fresh when you request it?
Now that you are looking good with your beautiful minerals...spare a thought for the planet and animals - are the product free from cruel animal testing, animal ingredients...and can you reduce plastic waste by using ECO friendly refills and eco friendly shipping materials?
ECO minerals offers 2 foundation formulas created of pure minerals to beautify and nurture your skin, infinite colours (including custom blends), free samples and are animal and planet friendly
