We have all heard they hype and talk about mineral make up and the benefits to a person they can have. But what does that mean to you? I will try and figure this out for you purely from my own research and experience(I am not trying to claim this to be that of an educated perspective).
There are so many lines out there that claim to be good to your skin. Well honestly there really isn't anything that is amazing for your skin, even if you don’t wear make up and go all natural you still are damaging it. It is the sad truth. But, just because there are not things that are good for it doesn't mean you have to provide more damage to it.
Liquid make up is not that amazing for your skin, it can A) concave into your pores suffocating them, B) trap your own natural oils in your skin causing acne or C)adding to much oil to your skin with its longevity formula. Liquid has the tendency to give you uneven coverage, with lines at the jaw line if not perfectly matched.
Powder is a great base make up, but isn't perfect. I love bare essentials but every line has it down falls.
Powder is messy, it can get all over your clothes if not applied correctly, there is a small chance of blotchiness. But overall powdered has more pro's than liquid. It can absorb oil, it has a longer wear and less ability to smudge. And if you opt for the natural kind you are putting less chemicals on your skin which is always a plus.
If you have troublesome skin, just make sure you are washing and mosturizing with hypo allergenic products. That is the only sure fire way to keep your skin looking good. Vitamin D mosturizers are amazing for the skin especailly if you live in not sunny parts of the world.
