What is the best way to use mineral makeup?
The purpose of makeup is to create a look, hide complexion flaws, and enhance your facial features.
Use makeup on top of your complete skin care routine. Remember, Complete Skin Care involves the 4 essential skin care steps of,
The last step is PROTECT and that's your sunscreen. Makeup goes on top!
As a dermatologist, I don't recommend makeup that tries to be sunscreen or a skin treatment product.
I always cringe when I see makeup trying to be more than it is -- an acne treatment, a sunscreen, or infused with a magic ingredient to stimulate 'cell turnover' or 'nourish' all those dead cells on the outside of your skin. Multitasking makeup products typically fall short and your complexion will suffer.
Most importantly, makeup that tries to be sunscreen is just plain scary; sun protection depends on putting enough product on, and you don't want to be limited by your aesthetic goals with your makeup. Tinted sunscreen is a much safer choice.
Tinted sunscreens are sunscreens with a little color, not color with a little sunscreen!
- The mineral sunscreens that I carry give you the broad spectrum mineral
- Dust mineral makeup on top of one of my sunscreens and you have an additional 'shield' of minerals to bounce UV rays off your skin before they wreak their havoc.
How do you know what makeup routine is best for you?
Your first step is to wear a mineral sunscreen every day under your makeup. I recommended Sheer Strength Pure Physical SPF 50+ Matte Sunscreen as a tinted matte mineral sunscreen. The matte technology will counter oily sheen throughout the day. This sunscreen is a great makeup base and the 4% iron oxide tinting technology blocks visible light too.
Your second step is to add a dusting of pure mineral powder over your sunscreen. I have three types of pure mineral foundation powders:
- Baked (applied with a brush),
- Pressed (applied with a compact sponge),
- Loose (applied with a brush and containing kaolin clay to help absorb excess oil and prevent oily sheen during the day.
Apply my beautiful Loose Mineral Blush powder to add rosy vitality to your cheeks.
I have beautiful mineral eye makeup in both baked and loose mineral powders. Know that a dusting of mineral eye makeup on top of your broad spectrum mineral sunscreen will add additional UV protection for this delicate and important area.
The best way to avoid notorious allergens and heavy metals in makeup products is with my pure mineral makeup powders and hypoallergenic zinc oxide sunscreens.
Many makeup products contain unnecessary and notorious allergens – the fragrances and preservatives. As a dermatologist I cringe! It's smart to use hypoallergenic makeup because allergens are added for fluffy consumer appeal and not makeup performance.
Mineral makeup particles will give your sunscreen a little extra help sun protecting your skin.
Feel good about your complexion and enjoy your makeup routine -- it's an important part of your daily self-care. Like what you see in the mirror, and know you are using the best products for your all-around skin care when you add these fine mineral makeups on top of your complete skin care routine.
The best eco-friendly and economically friendly cruelty free makeup brushes.
I love this brush set. The fibers are so soft they remind me of snuggling with a soft bunny or kitten - and no cute animals were part of the softness. It's all animal free softness. The brushes also hold up to washing without losing brush fibers. I wash mine all the time and they last. My cruelty-free and eco-friendly brush set comes with their own cotton wrapped bundle. They are as soft and kind for your skin as they are for our planet.
Love your makeup routine and trust that your skin is well protected with truly clean and smart makeup products. My passion is bringing you beautiful, healthy skin. I know that beauty follows self-care. Play a little. I’m making it easy with a little makeup sale.
