Shop Mineral Makeup


There’s a reason why even doctors and surgeons everywhere tend to recommend mineral makeup. It’s very effective. And Adore Beauty’s selection of organic and natural makeup brands will cover redness, uneven skin tone and give you that glow we all love.

 

The beauty of natural makeup is how it is can be infused with organic and natural makeup ingredients like Shea Butter, Jojoba oil & essential oils. In a nutshell, natural mineral makeup is good for you inside and out.

 

What is mineral makeup?

Mineral makeup first entered the commercial market in the 1970s and is one of the earliest forms of ‘natural’ makeups.

 

Its history goes all the way back to ancient cultures, which used ground-up minerals to apply colour and shading to the skin for decorative, camouflage, war paint or religious purposes.

 

Today, an amazing combination of minerals, such as iron, talc, zinc and titanium dioxide are ground and milled into tiny particles. Mineral foundation is often recommended for those with sensitive, acne-prone or post-procedural skin.

 

Why is mineral makeup good for anti-aging and sensitive skin? 

One of the main differences between conventional makeup and mineral makeup is what's not in mineral makeup.

 

Most mineral makeups forgo the emollient oils, waxes, fragrance and preservative ingredients found in conventional formulations, which make it preservative and fragrance free, and thereby less irritating for many makeup wearers.  

 

What’s more, mineral makeup has skin-soothing, anti-inflammatory properties due to the presence of zinc oxide and iron oxide. It also has minor sunscreen benefits (again, the zinc is to thank for that), although sunscreen is still highly recommended as one of the best methods to prevent premature aging.

pretty good

this powder is really nice if you're not looking for much coverage, and is good for people with discoloration in the skin as it evens out your complexion. however, if you're looking for anything to cover acne or breakout areas, this probably won't do you much good. it's really good for a quick everyday touch up, and feels nice on the skin.

Patchy coverage on textured skin

The formula seems nice enough, although I found it difficult to apply evenly over areas on my face that have texture (large pores and acne scars) even when used with different types of primers. Light/medium was shade recommended on the NbN website but it was far too yellow for my medium neutral skintone (EL 3N1). I didn't persevere with colour matching as I found my shade in a different brand mineral powder foundation that I'm happy with.
