Why are mineral cosmetics better?

  • They are healthier for your skin! True mineral cosmetics are free of fillers such as talc, chemical dyes, binders and chemical preservatives.
  • They are a skin care that “acts” like a makeup. Titanium & zinc oxide, two of the primary ingredients, are anti-inflammatory and provide some UVA & UVB broad spectrum sun protection. 
  • Unlike traditional make-up, minerals don’t amplify fine lines and wrinkles, instead, they reduce the appearance of aging by reflecting light, creating a soft, dewy focus.
  • They are eco-friendly!

How to apply minerals:

  • Begin with clean well hydrated skin. For mature skin (that’s anyone over 35), an oil serum is best.
  • Use a less is more approach- minerals are highly pigmented, a little goes a long way! 
  • Use a kabuki brush and a “twirl, tap, & brush” application.
  • For a natural & long wearing application, use a mineral toner to “set” the pigments allowing them to "lay down" on your skin.
