All makeup from Herbal House is 100% natural. NO TALC is added. Yes, talc is a mineral, but it doesn’t adhere to the skin like other minerals and is normally used as a filler in makeup.
Mineral makeup is anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory. There is no organic material in it so it does not harbor bacteria. This is ideal for skin conditions such as rosacea and acne and ensures anyone can use this makeup without the worry of any skin condition becoming worse. The zinc-oxide in mineral makeup is good for healing chapped and irritated skin. It works as a mild astringent and has some antiseptic properties.
DO NOT USE MINERAL MAKEUP IF YOU HAVE AN ALLERGY TO ZINC OXIDE.
With mineral powder makeup, your face is able to breathe, which is not the case with most liquid makeup. And due to the light-reflective minerals and particles, fine lines appear minimized so you will emit a healthy, radiant glow.
To apply mineral makeup, a good makeup brush is your best friend. Load the brush, and cover your face using a circular motion. Repeat until you have the coverage you like. Natural minerals ‘bond’ to the oils in the skin so makeup will not smear or smudge off.
Mineral makeup is probably the most versatile makeup you will ever encounter. It can be used as foundation, body shimmer, blush, eye shadow, eye liner, mascara, and lip stick. You can mix it with water, moisturizer, or cream to make a liquid makeup.
If you are sensitive to gluten, you can feel confident using our gluten-free mineral makeup. Samples of foundation, concealer, color corrector, eyeshadow, mascara and eyeliner are available for you to try before you buy.
If you have sensitive skin or are prone to allergies, test products on a small patch prior to using any product. If you have a reaction, stop use immediately and seek medical advice.
Instructions for Use
As you apply mineral makeup, remember that because there are no fillers, the makeup is more concentrated, so a little goes a long way.
First, use any moisturizer, creams or concealers on clean dry skin. For dark circles under the eyes, use an orange or yellow concealer powder. For any reddish areas, use green concealer. Next, dip and twirl your brush or applicator into the powder and tap off the excess. With a firm grip, pat powder onto skin. Make sure to pat because if you rub, the concealer will smear and rub off. Keep adding layers of foundation until you have the coverage you want.
For dry skin, add a moisturizer to the powder, blend into a smooth consistency and apply.
Blush can be put on first or you can start with foundation first. Begin by dipping and twirling your blush brush into the blush powder. Tap the excess off the brush. Next, apply blush to the apples of your cheeks buffing in circles back toward the hairline. Make sure you leave a margin between your cheek and your nose. To measure, place two fingers beside your nose. Once your cheeks are nice and rosy, put a little blush on your chin, your nose, and a bit on your forehead; where the sun naturally “kisses” your face.
A mineral veil is a feather light finish that adds just a touch of color. It can be added over foundation or worn alone to better block UVA and UVB rays, absorb oils or minimize small lines and pores.
No matter what your goal is in using eye shadow, you will want to make your eyes appear to be deep set. The main way to do this is by choosing three colors of eye shadow or three shades of the same color. Using a small brush or pad, put the lightest color directly under your eyebrow, then put the darkest color in the crease of your lid and put the middle color on your eye lid. Be sure to blend these together where they meet.
Of course, there are many, many ways of “doing your eyes.” The best way to find your own best look is to experiment with different colors and techniques.
