To many, mineral makeup is more than just a beauty fad. It can be seen as an extension to a skincare routine, based on the perceived benefits of it being healthier for our skin than traditional makeup. Although it’s a relatively recent beauty trend, mineral makeup has been used for thousands of years, its use dating back to ancient cultures like the Egyptians (think Cleopatra eyes).
But what makes mineral makeup so different to the traditional forms of makeup, and more importantly, what makes it BETTER in the eyes of many consumers?
Into Autumn and with Winter approaching, I’ve really been feeling khaki tones and metallic warm lips. It seems the focus is on warm reds and berries this season, but I’m taking inspiration from the decades of the 90’s in these cooler months with basic browns and khakis, so I wanted to show you all an Autumn/Winter themed look that I created with some products available from Adore Beauty.
Welcome to my next instalment in my ‘Brand Spotlight’ series!
I’m all for finding genuine Australian companies who are cruelty-free, good quality and better yet, affordable and accessible to the everyday consumer. One brand who has really gotten my support recently is Natural Glamour. They provide diversity in coverage, skin tone and levels of SPF in their products to cover all women whilst protecting them from harsh UV rays. They do this, so that we can protect our skin more effectively whilst radiating our natural, sun-kissed beauty, something that Australian women are very well known for!
