Back To Mineral Basics

With the summer heat upon us, your usual makeup compacts may be too heavy for your skin. It may be time to bring out your light-weight options. Go mineral.
Several makeup brands have been launching their own mineral lines, with the aim of offering women with sensitive or oily skin a safer, more light-weight alternative to their makeup compacts. You really must be careful with the kind of products you allow to touch your face, especially in this season where the heat can aggravate all sorts of skin allergies.

Among the benefits of mineral makeup that beauty experts and cosmetic brands the world over have discovered include its ability to absorb oil, how it doesn't clog pores, and the good coverage it provides without weighing your face down--something that should matter to you this summer.

Because of their innovative benefits, a lot of mineral makeup brands can cost way more than your beauty budget would allow. But you may opt to try more reasonably priced brands, like that of Avon's. They recently introduced Smooth Mineral Makeup, an affordable makeup line that has 100 percent pure mineral pigments. They are long-wearing and is supposedly safe for use, even on sensitive skin.
