Why Mineral Make-Up is Good for Your Skin

Although not all women enjoy wearing make-up, the ones that do, and majority of women do, do it for a lot of reasons. Some apply make-up to cover up skin imperfections and blemishes but most apply make-up to highlight their facial features and enhance their physical appearance to achieve a beautiful, attractive look.
While some women are satisfied with the brand of cosmetic they use, the majority of women experience skin problems when using make-up. This is due to the fact that some of the ingredients used in some make-ups are cheap combination of synthetic chemicals that can cause irritations and can be harsh and even harmful to the skin.
Knowing this problem, some companies have researched, developed and produced a new line of make-up products that consists of natural minerals as the main ingredients. These are now known in the market simply as mineral make-up. Since mineral make-ups have natural ingredients, they are safe to use and the minerals even help out in enhancing your skin's condition.
Majority of women who have used mineral make-ups have attested that they did not experience irritation and their skin even improved in terms of clarity and texture. Since then, the mineral make-up line of products has attracted a great following making its popularity known to large cosmetic manufacturing companies.
So what makes mineral make-up different from the conventional make-ups that we have grown to see being sold in local stores?
You see, mineral make-up uses natural minerals as their main ingredients. Since these are all natural ingredients, it is gentle and safe to use even on sensitive skin. Also, mineral make-up is considered as non-comedogenic which does not clog the skin's pores, letting your skin breathe, therefore eliminating blemishes which are caused by clogged pores. Because of this, people who have acne-prone skin can benefit very much with mineral make-up.
Moreover, mineral make-up gives a perfectly complete coverage that lasts all day that completely covers any existing blemishes and doesn't require multiple touch-ups all throughout the day making it very economical to use. In fact, a jar of mineral foundation can last up to 4-6 months of daily usage.
Also in some cases, long-time users of mineral make-up have reported that some of their skin problems such as acne and rosecea have been improved if not cured all the way.
Another great benefit of using mineral make-up is that you won't need to use sun block since mineral make-up has built-in sun blocking agents in its ingredients and you can enjoy protection of up to 20spf. This is very convenient for those busy women who have limited time in applying their make-up as it will save them time. Furthermore, mineral make-up creates a breathable barrier that effectively protects your skin from the harmful environmental pollutants.
And because of all these good benefits that mineral make-up can do for your skin, many dermatologists, aestheticians, and even plastic surgeons have highly recommended its use as an every make-up.
So if you haven't considered trying on mineral make-up, it is time to get you hands on one and get ready to have a great looking skin.


Eye Makeup Map

This eye makeup map shows the different areas of the eye where eye shadow (and eye liner) can be applied.
For the lid section, it refers to the entire lid area colored in light pink (it can also extend to the outer V area). 
 To apply the color to the outer V, I usually blend the same color inwards along the contour/crease with a fluffy blending brush.
The sections labeled upper lashlinewaterline, and lower lashline are areas where you can line your eye with an eye pencil, gel liner, or even eye shadow.
The inner corner and tear duct are popular  places to put bright shimmery colors to brighten up the eyes.
