Get the Look: Everyday Mineral Makeup

Friday, February 19, 2010

I’m all about getting healthy!  I’ve been loving my new fabulous fiber filled diet, thanks to the help of the F-Factor Diet and I’ve been diligently working out to get fit!  So it’s only logical right that if you are getting healthy nutritiously and physically that your beauty products should be healthy too!! It is estimated that 60% of what we put on our skin is absorbed into the bloodstream, so it is only natural then that you consider before putting something on your skin, is this HEALTHY and NATURAL? I suggest trying mineral makeup that contains no parabens, no preservatives and no chemical dyes, something that is 100% natural minerals.    Think of it this way, what you put on your skin is basically what you eat!  Yikes, makes you think right!?  So opt for minerals as your healthy makeup alternative!  You can purchase mineral makeup at all different prices like Bare Minerals available at your local Sephora or of course e.l.f. cosmetics Mineral Makeup available at (yep I just plugged e.l.f. :) ).  So remember to think twice about what you put on your skin and try going natural with mineral makeup.
What’s your favorite e.l.f. Mineral Makeup product?

I wish I could wear Mineral Makeup but I can't because I have oily skin. Although, elf's Mineral Blush is fantastic! It conceals my enlarged pores which of course accompanies oily skin making them appear smaller. I do like the eyeshadow colour ranges and the fact few shades are matte. More matte colours are needed here elf-please consider! I haven't tried the mineral eyeliner but I have tried the lipliner. Its very creamy and the colours are intense. I think Mineral makeup suits drier skin because on mine it feels heavy:(

I always wanted to try mineral makeup. It seems kind of hard to use and looks like it might get all over the place, but I am now seriously considering buying ELF's mineral concealer and other mineral items. I'm sure they wouldn't hurt my sensitive skin because they're natural. Thanks for making this blog!

I love the mineral foundation, but it doesn't love me, unfortunately, and goes on too yellow-y. I haven't tried much besides that, but I love some of the colours in the eyeshadows. They're just gorgeous. :)

My new favorite is the mineral eyeshadow primer. It works really well as a cover-up for under-eye darkness, and on stubborn spots on the rest of the face too!

I got the mineral makeup starter kit for christmas. I will never use cakey thick makeup again. It is so light. I don't need to reapply every few hours. I only use mineral makeup now. I love E.L.F.

Yeah I am in agreement with "loverof gloss"... major oily skin here too and big pores. I have tried EVERYTHING to get a flawless look and just can't seem to. With the Eyes Especially, they get oily too and everything settles into the crease but I am trying a bunch of new stuff from ELF to see if any of them work better for me as I have gotten a lot of recommendations to try their cosmetics. as for the video, we need better lighting to see better. :) I do like the look but i just can't do all that sparkle, but its a very pretty look! :)

Mineral Makeup is the easiest makeover ever. Before discovering this brand, I never bought it. I felt as if the mineral makeup products elsewhere were too expensive for my budget. BUT I love ELF! There mineral makeup is great and others ask me where I get my make-up friend. Since then, some of my friends have also bought ELF's mineral makeup and have also fallen head over heels for it!

I think that the lipstick from the mineral line is probably my favorite because it is so moisturizing and the shades are so pretty! I heard good things about the mineral blush as well, haven't got the chance to try that yet though (:

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THE MINERAL MAKE-UP!!! My favorite is the foundation. It covers nicely, and it doesn't feel like you have anything on. I just purchased the lip gloss, and I'm in love again. Nice shine, very smooth and NOT STICKY OR TACKY AT ALL. Thanks ELF; keep the great products coming.

I wish I could say I love the mineral foundations/eyeshadows, but if you're allergic to bisephnol-A, well, ELF has it too. It makes it much cheaper than the leading mineral make-up, but no less itchy if you're allergic. That being, I love the mineral lipliner and eyeshadow primer. The primer is great with all my other mineral eyeshadows and the lipliner blends well with all of the ELF glosses.
