Mineral Makeup Reigns in Best of Sephora Awards!
Well, they say that mineral makeup, is made of inorganic minerals, that unless contaminated with moisture, will not expire.
I just wonder, what mineral makeup have you got over there that has stayed the longest with you? And are you still using it?
It was only last weekend when I casually strolled in the beauty section of the department store to see mineral makeup being sold at the Cover Girl booth. I also saw L’Oreal, and Revlon having mineral makeup of their own. Despite my opinions about existing brands offering their own line of mineral makeup ( my only stand is that they really do manufacture real mineral makeup and not just plaster the word “mineral” on the label without understanding the essence of what real mineral makeup is), I am actually seeing alot of people being more and more curious with the concept of mineral makeup, as well as being open to the option of using them.

Here’s a quick story from my photoshoot held last Saturday. I was doing Cilarisse’s makeup, and I decided to apply an earth tone combo, and as I was very very afraid that the shade would turn out dull in photos, I whipped up my ever reliable Monave Multi-purpose Mineral in Gold Brick to use on her. Turns out, the color was very vivid. I didn’t even have to apply it wet!

Here’s part two of the mineral makeup guide for good skin. With having good skin, there are also inevitable things in life such as stress, lack of sleep, some minimal acne, or some dryness. Here are some tips!
Applying Concealer for the Under Eyes
There are moments when sleep is scarce, and the lack of oxygen circulation around the undereyes causes them to discolor and darken. Not a good sight, but this can be momentarily corrected with a yellow mineral color corrector in loose form.

Mineral Makeup Guide: Good Skin, Part Two
For my first installment of guides in mineral makeup application, this one’s called Mineral Makeup Guide : Good Skin. What is good skin? Well, some of us are blessed with good, low-maintenance skin that are clear and flawless to start with, but some of us are challenged with some problems of oiliess, blemishes, scars, some pigmentation, and even aging. Mineral makeup makes every skin look good, if I may say. No buts, only one – we have different application tips for different skin conditions! For those who have good skin to start with, here’s a guide on mineral makeup for you! This can also be helpful for teenagers that want some basic help on their first dose on mineral makeup, just to keep things simple!
Starting tomorrow, I thought I’d continue writing entries about mineral makeup tips with the growing number of newbies! With that, I’ve thought of writing a series of entries – maybe just one, for good skin, and maybe two for bad skin. I don’t know if it’s politically correct to call us who have problem skin “bad skin” ( please, by all means, let me know ) , but I will be enumerating several skin conditions, and how to use mineral makeup to alleviate and combat that certain problem.
I’ve been receiving a few inquiries on how to apply mineral makeup, and with the upsurge of mineral makeup newbies out there, here’s a quick run-through from The Mineral Makeup Blog, on some entries that will help you with your transition to mineral makeup, in terms of application!

Mineral Makeup Application Techniques : A Refresher
A mineral makeup convert knows that once he/she gets immersed to the world of mineral makeup, the sponges and powder puffs slowly exit their way from the new mineral makeup convert’s dictionary. All there will be left, are makeup brushes. Makeup brushes are the only tools that will work great with loose mineral makeup.
I’ve had the Mineral Essence Retractable Kabuki Brush and I can say that this works best with mineral foundation. It’s very dense, and the quality of the brush is just superb. The body ( the silver part ) is plastic, and is very sturdy, and as you pull off the cap and twist out the brush, you see a dense-looking kabuki. Very, very dense indeed with packed, short bristles that can guarantee instant coverage. I’d be lying if I said this brush did not shed a bit as retractable kabukis tend to shed more than normal makeup brushes, but the shedding stops after the supposed “shedding period”, as shedding is just minimal in this kabuki brush.
