Q: I’d like to try mineral makeup. Can you tell me more about it?
MyChelle Dermaceuticals licensed esthetician Catie Wiggy responds:
If you pay attention to the ingredients in cosmetics and skincare products, you already know that many mainstream products contain chemicals that may not be good for your skin. Mineral makeup, which has been around for decades but grew wildly popular over the past few years, is preferred by many women because it’s natural.
Made from minerals—typically mica, zinc oxide, iron oxide and titanium dioxide—that have been mined from the earth and pulverized into a fine, soft powder, mineral makeup is pure and gentle. It doesn’t contain the added dyes, fragrances, parabens or preservatives found in conventional cosmetics that can irritate sensitive skin, clog pores and potentially cause other problems.
Mineral makeup is also highly concentrated. It goes on smooth and provides rich color and long-lasting coverage. A little goes a long way, which is great when you’re on a budget.
Not sure which mineral makeup is right for you? Try MyChelle High Performance Mineral Makeup, which has been specifically designed to be convenient and easy to use. The compact design and creamy, non-powdery consistency ensure an easily accessible, on-the-go application that blends perfectly with your skin’s changing needs throughout the day.
Beyond covering up imperfections and enhancing natural beauty, MyChelle Mineral Makeup offers therapeutic benefits, protecting and nourishing skin with ingredients such as grape seed oil, camellia oil and passion fruit extract. You’ll never find polybutene, parabens, petroleum, oils, fillers, FD&C dyes, talc, bismuth oxychloride, carmine, heavy particles or nano-particles in any of our mineral makeup products.
