Mineral makeup products have taken the market by storm. Sadly, a lot of companies are also getting into it even if some do not use all natural ingredients in making their merchandise. This is why you should be careful when you go shopping and here are a few things you should know when you go and buy these products.
First, find out what brands sell mineral makeup. If you don’t know where to start, ask your dermatologist or do some research online. It will be helpful to ask know how much each one costs and then compare their prices. Should a company offer a 30 day free trial, sign up so you can test it for yourself.
Next, check the ingredients. Mineral makeup products should be made of natural ingredients. If you find something written that you have never heard of before, again do some research to find out where it comes from or ask your dermatologist. Keep in mind that some of these ingredients can be a skin irritant or at worse a toxin and in any case, you don’t want this to get on your skin.
Some of the ingredients the mineral makeup product you are looking at must have are mica, titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, and coloring agents like ultramarine blue or ferric ferrocyanide. If it has bismuth, bismuth oxychloride or talc, forget about it because these are examples of skin irritants. Parabens on the other hand have been linked to breast cancer and premature skin aging so avoid it as well since the purpose of putting on makeup is to look younger and radiant.
Mineral makeup comes in different colors especially for stuff like the eye shadows and a lot more. The beauty of mineral makeup is that it makes people think you are not wearing makeup so before you buy it, find out which one matches your skin tone. So be sure that the shade you choose is not too dark or too light making it so obvious that are wearing makeup.
So you get what you pay for, don’t pay attention to the size of the container but the net weight of the product. Sometimes, you will only find less than 5 grams of foundation inside a 20 or even 30 gram container and that means you are paying so much for very little.
Once you have done research on the brand, you can now buy these from the department store, retail store or online. Be sure to check on the company’s refund policy if you are not happy with the product so you can get your money back.
If you like one mineral product from one brand and find something else in another, forget about buying the kit because you won’t use it. Be practical because in these hard times, you can’t afford to waste money but rather maximize it.
As you can see, it is not that hard to buy mineral makeup products. It is just like buying any other product you want from the store but since this could affect your skin, you should just be a little more careful.
The proper way to use mineral makeup is by buying the right brush. You should buy a fan or powder brush and if this is not available, you can also use cotton.
