Q: Do you have bismuth in your products?

A: No, our pure minerals do not include bismuth. We have heard from thousands of women saying they’re having redness, skin irritation, and other reactions to bismuth. We do not include it in our cosmetics.

Q: What are your mineral makeup ingredients?

A: Here is a brief description of the ingredients that we use in our makeup.
Titanium Dioxide: This is a naturally occurring mineral that exists in the earth’s surfaces. It provides wonderful coverage for foundation as well as a non-irritating, full-spectrum sun shield.
Mica: This is an age old cosmetic used as long ago as the Egyptians. It is an almost colorless mineral that occurs naturally in the Earth’s surface.
Iron Oxides: These minerals are what adds color to makeup. They are natural salts that have been oxidized in a water process.
Sericite: This is a fluffy translucent mineral that can be used alone as a setting powder, and provides a silky texture to a foundation.

Q: What are Setting Powders for?

A: Our setting powder will do a great job giving you a finished look! It will help to minimize pores and wrinkles, giving you a flawless and complete look. If you have dry to normal skin, you should use our regular setting powders. If you have oily skin or get shiny during the day, it will be better to use our mineral rice powders.

Q. How can I tell if I’m Cool or Warm?

A: Here is the best way to tell if you are warm or cool.

  1. Hold a piece of white paper next to your cheek & look in the mirror.
  2. Do you look a little “Yellow” compared to the paper? If you are more yellow, then you are a Warm Color.
  3. Do you look a little “Pink” compared to the paper? If you are more red, then you are a Cool Color.
  4. Can’t really tell if you look more pink or yellow? That makes you a neutral color.

Q: Do you offer a concealer?

A: Yes, we have SPF-25 Ultimate Concealers. We recommend using a shade lighter than your foundation for under eye circles and lemishes. Mineral Makeup was originally designed as a concealer, and it performs beautifully in that capacity! You can also use our Ultimate Concealers as your primary foundation.

Q: If I am mixing shades to create my perfect foundation match, do I need to grind or mix the powders in some special way or will the shake or stir methods work?

A: Mixing our foundation powders by combining them in a container and simply shaking or stirring works fine. Just be sure to get them well-mixed, especially if the shades are very different from =
each other.

Q: Can you explain the undertones of each color family of foundation shades?

A: Yes. Here’s a quick list.

  • Yellows = beige + yellow
  • Warms = beige + yellow + peach
  • Neutrals = beige + yellow + peach + pink: Neutral Tone: Is a color that is not really yellow and not =
  • really pink. It’s in between warm and cool colors…

It can also be used to neutralize pink skin or ruddiness. Some women have roseaca, and their skin can be too red in the t-zone area… When they use a neutral color, it will balance the redness in their skin.

  • Cools = beige + peach + pink
  • Pinks = beige + pink

Q: Once I have samples of several foundation shades, how do I find my perfect match?

A: There are a few ways to do this… You can wear each shade by itself for one day and see which looks best. You can apply a small amount of each shade on your face (most recommend doing this near the jaw line) follow these simple steps:

  1. Use a small disposable applicator such as a q-tip.
  2. Dip the q-tip into a color you think may be suitable for them.
  3. Glide the q-tip with the foundation across the jawline.

    Choose the one that seems to disappear into your skin. If none of our shades seems quite right, you can mix your foundation into a combination and custom-design your own color! Still, others choose a shade that does not match their skin tone, but corrects it, such as women with Rosacea who often choose a shade with more yellow tones to counteract the redness in their skin. It’s all up to you!

Q: Are the powders drying?

A: No, quite the reverse. Most Powders have a bad name because they usually contain talc. Our minerals actually trap moisture between the skin and the crystal layer. And our mineral makeup are talc free!
