Achieve a flawless finish with beauty benefits, using the best mineral make-up

Mineral make-up is changing the face of beauty, and it’s not just a phase. In fact, according to a lot of people, they’d even say that mineral foundation is the best foundation.

Mineral make-up has increased in popularity over the years as people have been drawn to the idea that it’s more natural, therefore kinder to and more comfortable on your skin. Though many people think this just includes powders, liquid formulas can be mineral too and there’s something for everyone, from colour correcting properties to anti-ageing formulations. What’s even better is that they work wonders for problematics skin too, so if you’re after a foundation for acne prone skin, make this your first port of call.

If this sounds like the make-up for you, you’re in luck, because we’ve rounded up our 12 favourites on beauty counters now.

Whether you’ve got dry, sensitive, oily or normal skin, there’s a mineral make up here to suit your skin type. There’s also one to suit every budget, from purse-friendly options like M&S and the classic Lily Lo to more luxurious products on the market, such as bareMinerals.

Clarins’ Mineral Loose Powder is a beauty product that gives a seamless coverage, while creating a bright and radiant finish. Light enough for everyday use, an added benefit is that it can help protect your face against dryness too.
