Known and loved for their breathable, lightweight feel and natural-looking finish on the skin, mineral makeup has become a staple in many beauty routines.

Perfect for those who love a no-makeup makeup look, mineral makeup pigments are finely milled to leave a touch of colour on your skin and naturally perk up and perfect your complexion.

What is mineral makeup?

Often in both pressed and loose forms, mineral makeup is made up of minerals such as Zinc, Mica and Titanium Oxide which are finely-milled into silky consistency and blended with colour pigments. Packed with natural ingredients, mineral formulas are often good to the skin and perfect for those who struggle with imperfections and breakouts but also those with very sensitive skin.

Common nasties such as synthetic fragrances, waxes, preservatives and bulking agents won't be found in mineral makeup formulas so you can be sure that each product you apply is not going to irritate your skin or block your pores.

bareMinerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation

Create a beautifully radiant, dewy complexion with bareMinerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation. Combining mineral makeup with skincare, the luxurious foundation glides across the skin and sets into a luminous, natural finish with medium-to-full coverage. Enriched with Vitamin C to brighten and minimise the appearance of dark spots, this beautiful foundation both perfects your skin in the short term and cares for your skin over time.

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Highlighter

Add a gorgeous glow to your skin with the cult MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Highlighter. Coming in an array of skin-flattering, illuminating shades, the ultra-smooth formula creates a natural looking glow to the skin which can be built up to a striking highlight. Utilising MAC's 77-Mineral Complex, the finely-milled formula is so comfortable to wear and can be applied to your face or body and on to bare skin or on top of foundation to create an enviable glow.

Chantecaille Faux Cils Mascara

Rich in Mineral Salts and other natural ingredients such as Red Seaweed Extract, Chantecaille Faux Cils Mascara works to regenerate and condition your lashes while also adding instant volume and definition. The water-resistant formula coats each and every lash and amplifies the lashes with natural waxes for a thicker, fuller finish.

PÜR 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup

A foundation, concealer and powder in one, PÜR Pressed Mineral Makeup works to even out skin tone and add just enough coverage to perfect and enhance your complexion. Finely-milled with an ultra-smooth texture, the powder glides across the skin and never looks at all heavy or cakey. Enriched with Shea Butter and Vitamin E, it works beautifully on dry and dehydrated skin types unlike many powder formulations.

Natio Mineral Pressed Powder Bronzer

Add a sunkissed glow to your skin with Natio Mineral Pressed Powder Bronzer. With a natural finish, the bronzing powder like many mineral formulas is finely-milled allowing it to sweep over the skin without looking at all patchy. Simply dust on the parts of your face the sun would naturally hit and colour for a lit-from-within, healthy glow.

3INA Makeup The Blush

A pop of colour can work wonders to perk up and brighten your complexion. Ultra-smooth and available in an array of beautiful, skin-flattering shades, 3INA Makeup The Blush is infused with light-reflecting particles to brighten and add a subtle glow to your skin. With intense colour pay-off, the silky mineral powder adds a pretty flush to your complexion.
