Make up. Practically an essential for any woman, of any age. With the right attitude we can all be fierce and ‘Flawless’ as so finely put by WAH babe Queen BEY Beyonce! But by using a good makeup, we can look just as flawless as we feel.
Like many, I have gone through my fair share of makeups over the years. I’ve tried it all. BB Creams, Foundations, powders, cover-ups, bronzers, if its out there on the market I have tried it. I feel as though my skin has taken a journey with me, constantly changing, dependant on age, season, mood, location. A journey of trial and error, of finding the right make-up to suit my skin tone and complexion, a journey that has often been guided by misinformation and fads. Now, only just in my mid twenties, have I discovered my perfect make-up match. Finding a good mineral based powder, has changed my skin, for the better.
Why Mineral Powder?
Above all it is natural and made up of crushed minerals found in the earths crust. Essentially we are harnessing the earth’s goodness; the very essence needed for life to spring out of the ground and putting this on our skin. Titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, iron oxide, mica, gold and magnesium are the key minerals, all of which can be found in supplement form, that are beneficial for the health of your skin.
HOW? Well think about this. Your skin feels amazing when you dive into the ocean right? Of course it does, the natural salts hold cleansing and healing properties. So do Mineral powders. Except these healing properties double as a clean way to even out skin tones, avoid aggravating skin conditions and cover blemishes. Perfect smooth and clear skin. Check!
What are the benefits?
The benefits are plentiful! Lets take a look….
- It is light weight and does not form a cake like texture or appear like you are wearing makeup! (Surely its magic)
- Will not irritate skin conditions or cause flare ups (BAM! Evil be gone)
- Heal irritated skin or blemishes (Zinc is perfect for this)
- Provide a natural sunscreen (Win for beating skin cancer)

Powders that have parabens, fragrances, binders or synthetic dyes are simply parading around as a mineral makeup. So don’t give them a second look. Our pick? Maybelline Mineral Foundation Powder. With 100% micro-minerals it not only provides flawless coverage, but clears your skin, creating a radiant glowing vibe. Plus it is not overpriced and completely affordable.
There are many mineral powders out there. If you are like me and have tried every makeup under the sun, invest in a good mineral powder and be as ‘Flawless’ on the outside as you feel on the inside!
