If you prefer a lighter makeup look, then a traditional foundation can sometimes feel heavy and excessive. BB and CC creams are one alternative to this problem, but another way to achieve a natural, fresh look to your skin is to choose a natural mineral foundation. Mineral makeup is known for its lightness and breathability, making it the perfect option for summer heat. Unlike other makeup, which some claim clogs their pores and contributes to breakouts, mineral makeup actually contains ingredients that help maintain skin health and beauty.
This is the name that comes to most people’s minds when mineral makeup is mentioned. bareMinerals has been championing natural beauty since their establishment in 1976. Their casual Cali chic has led to them becoming a beauty sensation, with their bestselling Get Started kits introducing thousands of people every year to their light, loose powder foundations.
This organic and vegan UK-based beauty brand is a one-stop-shop, as they sell natural brushes as well as eye, lip and face makeup. Their powder foundations offer sun protection and contain zinc oxide, which has healing properties, making this mineral makeup ideal for acne sufferers or those with sensitive skin.
One criticism of mineral foundation is that there is not always a wide shade range, meaning women with darker skin can’t find a product that suits them. Alima Pure’s natural mineral foundation is made in the USA and has 45 different shades available so that everyone can find their perfect match.
This long-standing makeup brand also carries a wide range of colours to suit all skin tones, and their Skin Foundation Mineral Makeup has an SPF 15 for those sunny summer days. With pearlised mineral powder for evenness and a natural finish, this is an effortless option for vacation beauty.
