Mineral-rich make-up products are trending for their natural and breathable feel. With the changing times, mineral make-up has left behind its properties of chalkiness and its cakey-texture. It has grown more subtle with the right amount of mineral enhancers.

From loose powders to liquid foundations and tinted moisturisers, mineral make-up products cater to every area of your face. It is made up of minerals such as titanium oxide, zinc, and mica. These minerals are then milled into super-fine consistency and combined with pigments.

Natural ingredients set it apart from standard formulas and make it more skin-friendly. Regular agents like waxes, oils, synthetic fragrances, preservatives, and bulking agents are missing from mineral make-up.

The idea of it being preservative-free and non-clogging adds to its charm of being suitable for sensitive skin as well. According to The Independent, it is well suited for all skin types — from oily to dry. For best application, puffy and dense round brushes are suitable.
