Okay, sorry for the silence, mineral makeup lovers!
After a few months worth of hiatus from blogging about mineral makeup, it doesn’t mean that I have stopped using mineral makeup. I was able to explore about mineral makeup, and feel, and reaffirm to myself that mineral makeup is definitely one special thing in this life that I am incorporating in my makeup routine – forever!
Watch out for more mineral makeup articles, reviews, and even mineral eye makeup reviews, and various mineral makeup reviews, and sales, as your Mineral Makeup Girl is back!
See you next week!
Nowadays, with every product having the word “natural”, “organic”, “preservative-free” being the entice-factor to every person’s shopping decision, mineral makeup is the choice for the health conscious women ( and men ) out there.
I’ve been obsessed with mineral makeup, and made the switch almost the same time as I started my blog. If you ask me if I still use traditional makeup – I say yes, but it stays less than 24 hours on my face. And I use it sparingly. Mineral makeup will be my ultimate choice for everyday makeup, and even makeup for special occasions. Mineral makeup is the only kind of makeup that my skin feels home to. Alot of women ( and men, for that matter ) are starting to embrace and make the switch to mineral makeup, for mineral makeup does not clog pores and does not aggravate acne. In other words, mineral makeup is makeup that gives you no headache.
Say hello to Avon Smooth Mineral Foundation, Avon’s answer to the needs of women today, with its version of mineral makeup.
Looking at it overall, it’s packed in such a cute way that there’s already a kabuki brush that you can just use to apply your mineral foundation with. Nice, huh? It is actually a steal already for P 499.00, with a mineral foundation , and makeup brush in one!
When it launched in the Philippines just this February, it introduced two shades, a lighter shade called Almond, and a darker one called Buff.

It’s a bit rare that I review mineral makeup that is sold in department stores, moreso luxury brands. There’s been too much mineral makeup brands that I’m actually getting confused with the plethora of brands, and varieties, but when I see something exceptional, I definitely know it is out of the ordinary!
I’m starting this entry saying that Elizabeth Arden Pure Finish Mineral Powder must be my dream mineral makeup. I’ll tell you why!
First, it’s still in powder mineral form, the purest form of minerals. I’m not exactly fond of pressed mineral makeup, or liquid mineral makeup, I don’t know why, but my affinity lies in mineral foundations in powder form. Maybe it’s just that it’s in the purest form, in my opinion.

Mineral makeup blush is a bit tricky to apply, it’s because for mineral foundations, you can always load up, and just buff them away evenly if you apply too much, but mineral makeup blushes, very pigmented in nature, when applied, cannot be undone unless it is removed with tons of mineral foundation ( which I don’t recommend, since it would chalk up the face ), or by erasing everything and starting again, which is a pain.
To apply, get the smallest amount of product using a very light, and fluffy brush, with the brush head not being bigger than the entire apple of your cheeks. Apply the least amount of product, and as you notice a slight flush, just blend until it looks flawless, and get more product, apply again in a very sheer layer, until you get the desired color on your cheeks.
There are two types of application for mineral blush, according to face shapes.

Mineral Makeup Application Technique : Applying Mineral Blush, According to Face Shape
Last weekend, as part of my course, we were tasked to bring home our false eyelashes, and as an assignment, to decorate them. Our instructor suggested glitters to decorate them, while I, bringing along ziploc baggies of multi-purpose minerals, was so game in using them to transform my plain, black false eyelashes to the most ostentatious and whimsical ones!
Well, I wasn’t able to create the most dazzling ones, but hey, I was able to successfully color my falsies! Continue Reading »
Decorating False Eyelashes With Multi-Purpose Minerals
I must admit, liquid mineral makeup such as Illuminare Cosmetics really makes me struggle in the application department. I have all these samples in my cabinet that I haven’t started trying because well, I was trying to to keep on using powder mineral foundation because they’re the easiest to apply, but liquid mineral makeup is so challenging, that something in me wants to really go and see for myself the effect, the second time around. Last time, I applied on too much that I felt my skin had a mask on.
Great thing that Illuminare Cosmetics has released its first ever how to tutorial on how to apply their liquid mineral makeup! I’m so excited that I’m going to be using my Illuminare samples soon and have them up for a review, as I watched this very, very useful video!
