Mineral Makeup

(0) Hearts

Hi Everyone,

I am searching for a light weightr, great coverage make up.

I have a number of skin problems - acne (controlling this though), dry skin and oily skin also.

 

I have been told that Mineral makeup would be best. Is this tru and if so what would be the best brands to consider? I dont care about the cost as I just want something that is of good quality and will work.

 

If it's not mineral makeup then what could everyone recommend?

 

I like tinted moisturisers because they are light weight and do not like liquid foundation traiditionally because it's too "thick" and feels like it's caked onto my face!

 

Cheers

Hi KAqua,

 

Have you ever tried a BB cream? It combines a light weight tinted moisturizer with skincare built in!

I suggest the Boscia BB cream or the Dr. Jart+Premium Beauty Balm for your skin type.

I agree, using a mineral makeup will also be great because, it's light weight and gives an even smooth coverage.

I love BareMinerals.  I use their matte foundation, and it has great coverage.  However, I have noticed that it doesn't seem to have excellent staying power for me lately (I am looking for light weight liquid foundation).  But it looks great for at least 6 hours (I work 12 hour shifts, and I notice that at 2AM I don't look as great as i did at 6PM when I applied it).  I use their primer - hated the oil control version.  I still use their eyeshadows, and LOVE them; they're a little messy to travel with as they are loose, but I get over it.  I like their mineral veil as well.
