It is tempting for every woman to get gorgeous with the help of few of the innumerable makeup products available in the market. However, we often forget that the more makeup we pile on face, the more the danger of contacting chemicals, as these products have been formulated with harmful chemicals and made with artificial colours.
That does not stop us from using makeup, as many brands have formulated harmless mineral based products that are natural and devoid of damaging chemicals. Here is a step by step guide to get gorgeous with the use of mineral makeup:
Glow With Mineral Makeup
Hydrate And Prime
The key to a long lasting glowing makeup is a properly moisturized face. Dry and dehydrated skin can make the makeup look cakey and unnatural by chalking off. Use a mineral based moisturizer like St. Ives Elements Mineral Moisturizer that conditions the skin and protects it from harmful UV rays. It makes the skin soft and smooth and gives a subtle luminance to the skin.
The next step is to prepare the skin to hold the makeup and to erase out signs of fatigue and spots. Here comes the use of a primer. The best option for this is the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer. This silky primer creates an even texture and optically diminishes lines and spots. It eradicates enlarged pores for a luminous enlivened skin.
Your challenge is to get a perfectly smooth complexion with illuminating effect to give a youthful look. Once you have set your canvas ready for makeup, you have to create the flawless finish with a foundation. Get a dewy skin and an ultimate coverage with a foundation like The Body Shop Extra Virgin Minerals Liquid Foundation.
Infused with extra virgin olive oil and enriched with pure mineral properties, this foundation gives an illuminated look to the face. After you have achieved the amazing glowing base, it is time to ensure that the makeup stays for a long time without getting faded or creasing. You can use a loose powder like Neutrogena Sheers Loose Powder Foundation.
This can even be worn alone as it improves the skin’s clarity and reduces redness and sensitivity. Now try a concealer to hide imperfections like dark circles, spots, acne etc. Maybelline Mineral Power Concealer is a good product that creates a long lasting coverage with buildable texture without clogging pores.
Once you have created a perfect face, now is the time to enhance the brightness by imparting some natural flush of colour. Try something like MAC Mineralize Blush that will give a subtle yet pearly finish to the cheeks. Swipe your desired amount with a brush and blend to get a sexy glow.
If you want a sun kissed glow try something like Tarte Mineral Powder Bronzer that will give a beautiful whispering radiance to the skin and imparts a golden sheer touch. For a really bright and light reflecting illuminated effect try a highlighter on the cheekbones like Prominerals Loose Mineral Highlighter which will give a shimmery and pearly moonlit glow to your face.
Create a beautiful eye look with nature based eyeshades like E.L.F. Mineral Eyeshadow. Choose from a wide variety of available shades and brighten your eyes. Define the appearance of your eyes with a mineral enriched liner like Physicians Formula Mineral Eyeliner Pencil and finish off by brightening the lashes with thicker and elongated effect with a mascara like Korres Volcanic Minerals Volumizing Mascara.
