Liquid mineral makeup comes like a cream or liquid that looks and feels like a traditional foundation. It is ideal for people who prefer mineral makeup ingredients to traditional makeup, but who prefer to apply the base as liquid. This is particularly good for those who have dry skin because it usually contains moisturizing and nourishing ingredients in addition to the minerals.
Although the powder foundation can be used on dry skin, either at the top of a moisturizer or combined with it, people with dry skin often prefer a liquid makeup. It is usually preferable that anyone has dry skin that needs more complete coverage. There are also liquids formulated for people with normal skin to greasy. Most types do not make up pores or leave an oily residue.
The difference between powder and liquid mineral makeup
The powder makeup is in two forms: bulk powder and pressed powder. The bulk powder comes in the form of dry and finely ground minerals. The usual way of applying is by shaking a small amount of container makeup and using a brush to work slowly in the skin until it starts to mix with skin oils.
The pressed powder makeup is the liar due to the addition of an oily ingredient such as Jojoba, shea butter or almond oil. It can also have other moisturizing ingredients. The liquid ingredients are in lower concentration than those of liquid mineral makeup, it is therefore a wet powder rather than a liquid. Apply, a sponge or brush is rubbed in the powder and applied to the face.
Liquid mineral makeup looks like a traditional liquid makeup and is applied in the same way. It can be applied with the fingers, a sponge or a brush. The application of a brush is generally recommended to get a look more or more natural.
The ingredients vary greatly from the brand. Some minimalist products contain only some naked essentials such as water and glycerin in addition to minerals. Others can contain several moisturizing ingredients such as Jojoba, shea butter, various other vegetable oils and waxes, botanical extracts and essential oils.
The base ingredients of the minerals include titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, mica, iron oxides and ultramarines.
Most products do not have all these ingredients, but these are the most common mineral makeup ingredients.
As for mineral powder products, you can choose from a matte matte, semi-matte or Dewey look. There are liquid mineral makeup formulas to provide light, average or total coverage. Unlike powdered makeup, with which you build coverage by applying it in layers, with liquids, there are often different products to provide different coverage levels. Make sure to check if your liquid base provides light, average or total coverage.
