Mineral makeup trends. Creating your own personal color style.

Mineral makeup has become the new alternative to traditional store bought cosmetics. Not only are major cosmetic companies jumping on the bandwagon, but small businesses are forming everyday creating their own handmade versions of eye shadows, foundations, and lip colors as a natural alternative to chemical laden cosmetic brands.

Aside of the mineral makeup basics, there are also things like primers and sealants to help your makeup look it’s best and stay put throughout the day. You can experiment with creating these type of products as well or you can purchase them from other companies who specialize in handcrafted mineral makeup. The All Natural Face makes a Vegan Eye Shadow Primer that is applied to your lid before applying your shadow and eye liner. Not only does it help your shadow to stay put but it also gives you more freedom to blend your shadows and build up a nice bold color. Their Seal It Eye Shadow/Eye Liner Sealant is a natural alternative to keeping your eye shadow and liner smudge proof and in place all day while giving your shadows a foiled, wet look. Both products are excellent. My favorite eye shadow shade from The All Natural Face is Lemon Ice. It’s lovely as a highlight color on my brow bone with a pretty shade of pink on my lids.

Do you currently use mineral makeup? What is your favorite brand(s) and color(s)?

  1. I rarely wear makeup, but when I do, I do have mineral makeup that I purchased from indie seller – a long while ago and if I ever want more I’ll do the same. Then again … maybe I’ll make my own!

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Great find! I was *this* close to starting MMU a few years ago but didn’t due to time/space restraits. Now I wish I had.

  3. Hi! I use handmade mineral makeup all the time, it’s all I ever use!

    In fact, I buy all of my makeup from The All Natural Face!

    I use her golden brown eyeshadow, and Pink Ice Storm to add a sparkly highlight on the brow bone.

    I also use her black eyeliner, and depending on what mood I’m in I sometimes use the powder eyeliner, and sometimes the gel.

    For eyeshadow I use Ivory Rose and a Light Tan mixed together, and her Petal Pink Veil.

    I can’t remember what color the blush I use is though, I’ve still got samples of that and haven’t bought a full size.

    I love her makeup, it’s so good!

    Thanks for sharing the post.
