The Benefits of Mineral Makeup

The finely crushed minerals may look like a powder, but it’s actually a very creamy foundation that feels great on all skin types and doesn’t leave any lines. It’s easy to apply—just remember that less is more. You can always keep building coverage.


At InStyle Beauty Salon in Dallas, we are proud to carry the full line of Bare Minerals products, which offer foundations that are SPF 15, and come in such a wide variety of shades that there is a shade available for everyone!  We will be happy to help you find the right shade for you, and give you tips and tricks for application. 

There are many benefits to wearing mineral makeup –

         Mineral makeup is non-comedogenic, which means it will not block pores and allows the skin to breathe, which also makes it a good choice if you have sensitive skin.

         The minerals are sterilized and pulverized into a very fine powder, which is then mixed with natural inorganic colorings to produce a variety of shades.

         The fact that the prime ingredients in most mineral makeups are inorganic means that bacteria and cannot live in the makeup and infect the skin.

         Mineral makeup doesn’t give the wearer a “mask-like” feel that most chemical-based makeups do.  Mineral makeup has almost a weightless feel to it, and to some feels like they aren’t wearing any makeup at all!

         The best mineral makeups contain ingredients to benefit the skin, including broad spectrum UVA & UVB sun protection, as well as zinc and anti-inflammitories.  Women with oily skin may see a reduction in oiliness, since mineral makeups are made with no oils, unlike chemical-based makeups.

         Mineral makeup is “so pure you can even sleep in it” according to the Bare Escentuals folks…while it’s recommended that you always remove your makeup before going to sleep, it’s good to know that if you don’t, you won’t be facing breakouts and other consequences!

         The key to getting the best coverage from your mineral makeup is ensure your skin is adequately moisturized – skin that is too dry may tend to make foundation look somewhat “cakey” or to settle into fine lines and wrinkles.  Allow moisturizer to settle in to skin for a couple minutes before applying mineral foundation.
