Top 5 Benefits to Using Mineral Makeup

level4_4660_2666Mineral makeup is all the rage now, and for good reason! It not only gives you that gorgeous polished look, but it’s super healthy for your skin. Intrigued? Want to know more??!! Here are the top 5 benefits you’ll receive by packing that makeup bag with mineral makeup over traditional makeup (and hopefully you’ll choose VirginN’s very pure, very beneficial mineral makeup – check it out here).

Benefit #1: No Artificial Additives
This isn’t true for all mineral makeup – check out last week’s blog – but mineral makeup, especially VirginN, is absent of fillers like chemical dyes, binders, talc, and chemical preservatives that most traditional makeups possess.

Benefit #2: Better Coverage, Breathable Skin
There’s an appeal to traditional makeup when it comes to covering up imperfections and blemishes that may seem unsurpassed. However, these products act as saran wrap on your skin, not allowing it to breath and potentially worsening blemishes, dryness and any redness. Mineral makeup can give you better coverage without clogging up your pores!

Benefit #3: Natural, Flawless Look
Mineral makeup is made up of… well minerals! Minerals reflect light, and mineral makeup does the same thing, giving you a softer glow and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Traditional makeup tends to sink into fine lines, and can make them more prominent rather than cover them up.

Benefit #4: Long Lasting Coverage, and Shelf Life
Traditional makeup is easily rubbed, and smudged. Mineral makeup lasts much longer, and doesn’t melt or run off your face like traditional foundation can. Also, a little goes a long way with mineral makeup. With traditional makeup, you may need much more to cover up imperfections, but mineral makeup is just as easy to apply, and you just need a miniscule amount. Not only does mineral makeup last all day on your skin, but its shelf life is impressive as well. This is because mineral makeup doesn’t contain extra additives and preservatives.

Benefit #5: Quality Ingredients
We talked a little bit about the quality of some mineral makeups, and VirginN is the highest of quality compared to other brands – see the difference here. While traditional makeup adds fillers, and other material specifically designed to keep shelf-life short, mineral makeup doesn’t have this. The base ingredient of mineral makeup is Mica, which has amazing skin adhering properties. Mica does have an enemy that is commonly used in mineral makeups – Talc. It’s essential to avoid talc in your mineral makeup, which VirginN absolutely does not use!

So there you have it! The benefits of mineral makeup, and why so many are turning to it, and avoiding traditional foundations and powders! Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions about how to properly apply mineral makeup, and what to watch out for in other mineral makeup products!

    I switched to mineral makeup 5 years ago because I felt like my skin couldn’t breathe, as if no matter how thin I tried to layer the foundation it felt swamped with grease. It’s a little more expensive than regular makeup, but considering how much money it’s saved me on skin care products to manage the acne outbreaks, I’d say it’s worth it.

    I know I’m out of my element commenting on this, but I’ve been trying to find something nice for my wife for her birthday coming up in a months time. I think she’ll be interested in using a product that’s both more natural and provides a softer glow. I think she’ll appreciate having it make her skin more breathable too. I don’t suppose there is a good way to find out what colors she might like (I mean without spoiling the surprise)? Thanks for the good info!
