Mineral Makeup Made Easy
Getting a new look has never been simpler
I was first introduced to mineral makeup a few years ago, and I knew it was a winner as soon as people starting telling me how great my skin looked. I’ve always been prone to breakouts and have been unsatisfied with the look and staying power of oil-free foundations, so when I found out that mineral makeup wouldn’t cause pimples, I was ready to make the change.
After a little trial and error with application (there’s a specific way to “buff” the powder into your skin), I was hooked, and would never go back to liquid foundation. Then I discovered that I could use mineral makeup all over my face – there were products for cheeks, eyes and lips, too – and my makeup bag was forever changed. (That’s BareMinerals founder Leslie Blodgett at top left, with just some of the choices available.) If you haven’t tried mineral makeup yet, or you’re looking to venture beyond foundation, BareMinerals is one of the leading lines, and they have a variety of starter kits that will help you morph from a mineral-makeup novice to a pro in no time.
