Mineral make-up can provide great colour and coverage

bareMinerals ORIGINAL Loose Powder Foundation, £30 When it comes to mineral makeup, one of the most well known brands is bareMinerals. The company launched the ORIGINAL Loose Mineral Foundation back in 1995 and went on to produce skincare, brush, face, eyes and lip products – all infused with minerals and naturally-derived extracts. Their bestselling ORIGINAL foundation provides all-day coverage and minimises the look of blemishes without clogging pores. Available in eight shades, the foundation is buffed onto the skin until it transforms from a powder to a silky cream.

Supergoop! (Re)setting 100% Mineral Powder SPF 30, £28
Supergoop! (Re)setting 100% Mineral Powder offers the skin-blurring and mattifying power of a finishing powder and fixes makeup in place without a hint of cakiness. To use, twist the body of the brush from the closed position to open, tap the brush against your wrist until the power begins to flow through the bristles and then brush over your makeup to set the look in place.

Lily Lolo Mineral Eyeshadow, £7.50
Lily Lolo is a British natural mineral makeup brand that has been around since 2005. 90% of the product range is vegan friendly. The Mineral Eyeshadow is a highly pigmented, loose powder that’s gentle on the delicate eye area. There are 27 different shades to choose from. Remember, less is more when it comes to mineral makeup, so only use a small amount on your brush, then sweep the product across the lids, blending as you go.


Jane Iredale Liquid Minerals A Foundation, £39.95
A skincare and makeup product in one, the Jane Iredale Liquid Minerals A Foundation is a light-reflecting mineral foundation that provides sheer to medium coverage. The serum minimises pores, diminishes the appearance of fine lines and evens out skin tone. To use, pump on to the back of your hand and apply using a foundation brush. For a sheer finish, use a wet applicator.

Bellpierre Mineral Lipstick, £19
Bellpierre’s Mineral Lipstick is formulated with natural waxes and mineral pigments, iron oxides and antioxidants such as Vitamin C and Vitamin E, which hydrate and soften. The range features 18 hues, from soft nude pink to deep berry. The lipsticks are longwearing, feel soft and silky, and don’t dry out the lips thanks to the 100% natural formula and hardworking ingredients – beeswax and castor seed oil.

No7 Mineral Perfection Loose Powder Foundation, £13.95
Achieve a soft finish with a dusting of the finely milled No7 Mineral Perfection Loose Powder Foundation. The foundation delivers a light coverage and is part of a three-step routine. Firstly, smooth on the No7 Airbrush Away Prime. Next, apply your chosen No7 Mineral Perfection Foundation using a fluffy brush – don’t overload the brush and be sure to tap away the excess. Set your makeup in place with a spritz of the No7 Stay Perfect Fixing Mist.

PÜR Mineral Glow Skin Perfecting Powder, £22
PÜR founders describe their products as ‘makeup with a purpose’, so in addition to covering imperfections, they also help to correct the skin’s overall appearance. The Mineral Glow Skin Perfecting Powder is a bronzer with a luminating finish, that can be used on its own or over foundation. The formula contains moisturising shea butter, and ceretin complex that combines age-defying retinol and hydrating ceramides to smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
