Natural Mineral Effects Keeps Your Skin Easy to Maintain, Healthy and Naturally Looking ... even with all the colours of the rainbow.

Natural Mineral Effects for Everyone

Today, basic mineral makeup is primarily a naturally occurring product.

Natural Mineral Effects Put You and Your Health at the Top

As a side issue, dermatologists will recommend mineral products to men and women who have sensitive skins or have other dermatological problems and need to be more careful about what they put onto their skin so that it does not inflame or irritate their skin any further.

Loosely speaking, mineral makeup are ground up earth minerals. Mineral makeup provides a very sheer and almost opaque coverage of the skin.

This is primarily dependent upon how the makeup is formulated (whether other ingredients are added that change these characteristics) and the application method of the makeup.

One of the normal characteristics of mineral makeup is that it allows the radiance of a persons skin to shine through - note the word "normal". How many brands do you see advertising the fact that their product lets your radiance shine through ... as if it is a special feature?

There are no artificial covers in natural mineral makeup that blocks or alters the natural radiance that our skins produce.

At the end of a long day, the Natural Mineral Effects will leave your skin fresh and natural looking.

This is contrary to what we are made to believe. Natural looking is not a layer of silicone makeup coating our skin. Don't be fooled by glamorous photos in the media - you can be sure they have been edited.

Bright Colours from Natural Mineral Makeup

Bare mineral makeup recipes (in powder form) are not made with fragrances or preservatives.

For this reason, mineral makeup does not expire because there are no oils or water in it for bacteria to grow.

Oily skin responds particularly well to the Natural Mineral Effects by absorbing excess oil from your skin.

Application is simple by typically buffing or dusting with a brush.

Dusting is best as it lightly coats the surface of the skin causing less potential irritation. (Buffing can force mineral makeup into the pores and cause a some build-up)

Natural Mineral Effects are made up with the following key ingredients

How to Buy Natural Mineral Makeup
