Question by Coccinelle: What’s the difference between mineral make-up and normal make-up?
And the concept of “mineral make-up” is concerning only foundation or make-up in general (eyeshadow, blush…) ???
Answer by Aaralyn
I’m going to sound like I work for Bare Minerals, but I don’t, I just like the brand…
Mineral makeup is supposed to be made from natural materials. For example, ID Bare Minerals is supposed to be made from crushed rocks (I say “supposed to” because as far as I’ve found, I can’t look up the ingrediants in the makeup). Since it’s made from natural ingredients, it is supposed to be better for your skin. I believe it. I use it and so far my skin looks and feels better than it did with other foundations.
ID Bare Minerals does all sorts of make up products, foundation, blush, bronzer, eyeshadow, eyeliner. I’m not sure if their lip products and mascara are also supposed to be natural, but all of the other products are made from minerals.
I like mineral makeup better because, once you learn what goes into other types of make-up (animal fat, fish scales, and other gross stuff), how can you put that on your face?
