My Mineral Makeup Favourites

I have truly embraced mineral makeup and have been using it for the last three years or so. It really works for my sensitive skin, it's super easy to apply and it blends into the skin very well. These products are good enough for your skin to eat. So there.

My Kit Mineral Foundation has a broken lid, which just shows how much I love it. We have been around the world together twice. I have it in the shade Fair 01 which has a yellow tinge which evens out my naturally slightly red skintone. I use a Bare Escentuals kabuki brush with it.
My true love though is my Body Shop bronzer. We have been around the world together 3 times (not that anyone is counting) and I have almost finished it which is sad. I have it in the shade 01 and it's perfect for a naturally bronzed look. I apply it with my Body Shop Face & Body brush. I love big brushes because you don't need to take special care with your application.
Sadly, due to my love of the bronzer, my Body Shop blush has been neglected but I am planning on changing this. It is such a gorgeous colour and it needs to be used more. The shade is 03 warm copper and it is absolutely delightful. I have a matching kabuki brush for this from Body Shop.
Some new additions to my mineral makeup include SHE's Pure Mineral Pressed Foundation which I use with my Models Prefer sponge.
Then there is the fabulous Vani-T Mineral Diamond Dust which gives me the glow no matter how little I've slept. A ratty old Benefit brush is used to complete the illusion of high cheekbones.
So there you have it, the five mineral loves in my life.

Do you have a mineral makeup love? Do you prefer mineral products?

  1. I don't know why but I'm so hesitant to try mineral pressed powder. I really like loose powder because I find it so easy to blend it!

    Mineral foundation is amazeballz!

    1. Amazaballz indeed. Could it be because you think it may be too obvious? I was hesitant too but have had great experiences with it:)

  3. I've never actually tried mineral foundation. I've always been scared it will make my dry skin look worse!

    1. I can have dry skin too but it's never been a problem. I mainly apply it on my cheeks and chin so at least my nose never looks dry. Just ask at a counter to try it, it would be in their best interest for you to look good X

  5. My face just sucks up any mineral make-up...what does this mean? I have used the Natio brand. I like that if feels light and not cakey, but it's only short-term on my face. x

    1. Well at least it's mineral so your skin gets good stuff into it:) I would use a primer as a barrier in between the face and the makeup just like Kimba suggested. X

  6. You probably need a primer underneath it. You can pop a liquid primer on and wait a few minutes before applying your mineral powder makeup. You can get powder primers - MAC sell one - but I'm not a huge fan. Also, you may need to apply a setting powder over the top (otherwise known as a mineral veil). My favourite is Ready Set Go by Australis, which is currently on sale in a pack with a mini kabuki brush for $12.95. (Cannot vouch for the brush as I've not used it).

    I use a primer, then a tinted moisturiser and use my mineral powder for extra coverage where I need it. I like id Bare Minerals, available from Kit. I think it's better than the other ones I've tried - Bobbi Brown, BECCA Boudoir compact, Maybelline. Not the cheapest but not the most expensive either.

    Ingrid, did you ever get yourself a plastic container for your broken powder?!
