Mineral make-up: 13 of the best beauty buys available now

Achieve a flawless finish while giving your skin exactly what it needs with the best mineral make-up available

Mineral make-up is changing the face of beauty and it’s not just a phase. In fact, according to a lot of experts in the industry, it’s the best foundation to combat a slew of skin problems. Not only is it kind to sensitive skin but it’s also non-comodegenic; this means it doesn’t clog pores and lead to blemishes like others. It absorbs excess oil too. So, if you have oily skin, mineral foundation will be your saviour.

Over the years people have been drawn to the idea that mineral make-up powders are more natural and therefore kinder to/more comfortable on your skin. Although many people think mineral make-up only includes powders, liquid formulas can be mineral too. If you have dry skin, but still want the goodness of a mineral foundation, get a liquid formula. Your skin will feel hydrated and dewy.

Theres’ also a range of beneficial properties to many of the formulations found today. If you suffer from redness or sallow skin, try a colour correcting mineral foundation. These can also help combat sallowness and hyper-pigmentation. And if you’re looking for something that can battle fine lines, invest in one of the anti-ageing formulations.

These foundations also make a great base for special occasions. Heading down the aisle soon and not sure what the best foundation for your wedding is? We recommend stocking up on Jane Ireland’s Pure Pressed Base. Thanks to its ability to give skin a smooth matte finish, it’s become a real favourite among brides. Apply full coverage in the morning and then touch-up throughout the day.
