Shop Mineral Makeup


There’s a reason why even doctors and surgeons everywhere tend to recommend mineral makeup. It’s very effective. And Adore Beauty’s selection of organic and natural makeup brands will cover redness, uneven skin tone and give you that glow we all love.

 

The beauty of natural makeup is how it is can be infused with organic and natural makeup ingredients like Shea Butter, Jojoba oil & essential oils. In a nutshell, natural mineral makeup is good for you inside and out.

 

What is mineral makeup?

Mineral makeup first entered the commercial market in the 1970s and is one of the earliest forms of ‘natural’ makeups.

 

Its history goes all the way back to ancient cultures, which used ground-up minerals to apply colour and shading to the skin for decorative, camouflage, war paint or religious purposes.

 

Today, an amazing combination of minerals, such as iron, talc, zinc and titanium dioxide are ground and milled into tiny particles. Mineral foundation is often recommended for those with sensitive, acne-prone or post-procedural skin.

 

Why is mineral makeup good for anti-aging and sensitive skin? 

One of the main differences between conventional makeup and mineral makeup is what's not in mineral makeup.

 

Most mineral makeups forgo the emollient oils, waxes, fragrance and preservative ingredients found in conventional formulations, which make it preservative and fragrance free, and thereby less irritating for many makeup wearers.  

 

What’s more, mineral makeup has skin-soothing, anti-inflammatory properties due to the presence of zinc oxide and iron oxide. It also has minor sunscreen benefits (again, the zinc is to thank for that), although sunscreen is still highly recommended as one of the best methods to prevent premature aging.

Great for summer and air conditioned skin

Love this product! I've been using it for the past week (of hot weather and constant air conditioning) and have noticed my skin feeling far more hydrated than before. I recommend spraying it just before bed.

Lovely product - works well, feels good, smells good!

I have been using this primer for about 2 years now. It feels lovely on the skin and is a good base before applying foundation. A little bit goes a long way! I have also used it as a moisturiser or in place of foundation if I don't want to wear a lot of make up. Highly recommend.

Easy coverage

I like the light coverage that this mineral foundation provides. It's easy and quick to apply. I opted for the light shade, which matches my skin well.

Don't love it

First off the consistency of this foundation is like water. you have to use a lot to create a medium/high coverage and it oxidised right before my eyes to 2/3 shades darker. I love so many products from glo minerals but this product was a big miss for me anyway.
