- Is natural and gives a stunning natural finish
- Provides a high sun protection factor
- Holds up in very humid climates
- Is safe to use one acne skins
- Locally manufactured from Australian minerals

Mineral Makeup is perfect for all skin types including dry and oily, and is very economical. It is a foundation, powder and concealer all in one.
For those with redness or pigmentation which needs to be concealed the problem is over with a sweep of the brush. No more messy concealers or green tinted creams which make you look like a clown.
Even during an outbreak of Rosacea or pimples disguising the redness and angry surface will make you feel 100% better about your appearance. This in itself will help shorten the outbreak as stress extends these conditions.
Needless to say I'm hooked on minerals. For a long while I avoided loose minerals thinking they were too messy until one day a makeup artist suggested placing a tissue on the bench before starting the makeup routine. Problem solved in one small step.
Other advantages having the tissue on the bench include somewhere to wipe brushes after use for eyeshadow or eyeliner.
I tried really hard to use the mineral makeup in compacts for ease of use but it did not stay on my face for more than a few hours. Compact Mineral Makeup also contains dimethicone, necessary to hold the powder together but it is not a natural ingredient.
Mineral Makeup colours are very forgiving, meaning one colour can suit many skin colour tones. For people who develop some tan during summer and that is most countries, 2 makeup colours should be on hand. One for the cool seasons when you are more pale and one to use during summer. The beauty of loose minerals is colours can easily be mixed to get just the perfect colour.
MiSMo sell sample pots of mineral makeup so you can try the colour before purchasing or mix 2 colours to achieve that perfect shade.
Mineral eyeshadows give huge choices in colour tone. Use dry and colours can be soft through to strong. Use wet to achieve a "foiling" effect. The colours are dramatic and adhere very well.
Ingredients to avoid are talc and bismuth oxychloride. Bismuth can make your skin very itchy and worse still if you are prone to breakouts get ready for a big one.
Blush works well on darker skin shades from olive through to very dark. It lifts skin tone. Lighter skins can use either blush, bronzer or both.
Applying a moisturiser is essential before using Mineral makeup. Oil is the magic that gives long adhesion and a natural silky look. Mineral makeup can be applied directly after using an oil and that includes MiSMo A-C-E Vitamin C serum, perfect for dry skin types. The look is very much like a liquid in this case.
For those with very oily skin an oil free moisturiser is fine as your natural oils with come through within minutes and bind minerals to skin.
Makeup is fun and age doesn't need to change that. Observe friends who don't wear makeup. They rarely look as attractive or "finished" in appearance. It takes only a few moments to apply mineral makeup foundation and a minute to add blush and eyeshadow.
