Mineral makeup is a natural alternative to the many synthetic products on the market, created with minerals and botanicals in all products from the foundation to the lip products. The colors range the full spectrum in soft matte and rich shimmery pigments, loose or pressed. And, the ingredients provide a long list of benefits, which may include natural sun protection, vitamins, anti-oxidants, collagen-stimulating peptides, and more.
Mineral makeup's popularity also stems from its other qualities. First, its natural, sterilized ingredients balance and tone the skin, providing a sheer and luminous layer on the skin. Secondly, mineral makeup has healing qualities with anti-irritants and anti-oxidants built into the makeup, making it an ideal product for calming and camouflaging rosacea, acne, and hyper pigmentation. Third, mineral makeup has moisturizing botanicals and essential oils that soften and nourish the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The fourth benefit is that mineral makeup is non-comedogenic, so it won't clog pores and allows the skin to breathe. And yet another benefit is the inherent water resistance, so it doesn't easily wash off with tears or sweat: brides love it!
"You're going to love working with mineral makeup," says Graham. "Take your creativity as far you can. It's hard to make a mistake with this product."
"This engaging and informative DVD provides clear instruction on how to apply mineral makeup. Leslie Graham has stepped up and created a mineral makeup video that provides a clear path to achieve many different looks," says Shirley Erickson Gorospe, president of Aesthetic VideoSource.
