Best Mineral Makeup around the Globe
Beautiful skin and hardcore chemical do not go hand in hand. A slight hint of makeup daily can wear and tear your skin in no time. On one hand, cosmetics make you look young and beautiful but on the other hand, they damage your skin. But, now there is this relatively new kind of makeup known as mineral makeup that enhances your beauty and also rejuvenates your skin – have you heard of it?
Introduced in 1970s, it has become a rage for all the good reasons. It was Bare Escentuals who, with the launch of mineral powder foundation, started the “Mineral Revolution”. Today, most of the makeup artists and celebrities opt for mineral makeup as it gives you a very natural look. It is more preferable than liquid makeup especially during summer time. They are suitable even for sensitive skins and since it doesn’t contain oil so it is best for acne-prone skin. Its contents not only give sun protection but also work as anti-inflammatory on your skin.
