Mineral Powder Foundation
Mineral powder foundation is an airy and delicate foundation designed to match your skin color while covering imperfections. Free from oil, fragrances and preservatives, mineral foundation is often the go-to choice for sensitive skin types. Loose or pressed and may come in compact form; more often sold in powder form but sometimes available as liquid or cream form as well.
Dermatologists and skincare clinics often recommend mineral makeup due to its ability to clear pores and treat blemishes effectively, making it popular with makeup artists who appreciate its seamless finish and earthy tones that suit all complexions from very fair to dark skin tones.
Mineral powder foundation application requires using a Kabuki brush dipped into powder to apply and buff onto your face in circular motions. Be sure to use a hydrating mist after your makeup application to keep it in place all day long!
Tip for using mineral makeup correctly is allowing your foundation to fully dry before adding other products over it, such as blush or bronzer. Otherwise, blending will become difficult due to an incomplete drying time for these mineral bases.
No specific time of day is ideal to apply mineral foundation; use it whenever it suits you best! Simply be sure to moisturize each morning prior to using makeup so the minerals have something hydrated on which they can rest.

With easy application and an impressive variety of shades to choose from, this pressed powder made with natural ingredients doesn’t contain talcum powder – commonly found in conventional cosmetics as filler to dilute minerals – nor bismuth oxychloride which more and more women are finding irritating or sensitizing to.
