How Mineral Makeup Can Cause Pimples

I have a very Sensitive, Oily and Acne Prone Skin but I love wearing makeup. It's because I always want to hide the shine and blemishes on my skin. Of course I am not happy about this but I always look on the bright side of life. There are so many ways to control the Sensitivity, Oiliness and occurence of Acne.

It's really hard to find the right product for Sensitive Skin, but I find using Natural Cosmetic to be a big help. Because Natural substances are mild and gentle on skin. But not all natural cosmetics can be helpful for the oiliness of my skin. And the more oil production my skin gets, more more chances of clogging my pores that will cause blackhead and whiteheads and eventually pimple breakout.

Wearing Mineral Makeup will not harm your skin even if you sleep on it may be true for some people. Because Mineral Ingredients are mild and gentle on skin. It can even nourish your skin. But for someone who have an Oily Skin, I dont think it would be healthy to sleep with your Mineral Makeup on. Mainly because the oil can clog your pores and will eventually cause pimple breakout.

So if you have an Oily skin, you should always keep your skin clean, using natural and mild products. Mineral Makeup may be good for your Oily and Acne Prone Skin, but there are other substances within your environment that your skin gets while wearing your Mineral Makeup. So before thinking that the Mineral Makeup is the cause of your pimple breakout, look first on how you take care of your skin. Try to find the right Mineral Makeup for your type of skin.

Mineral Eyeshadow Matte Pastel Colors


It's fun creating different formula and colors for Mineral Foundation but I never thought that making an eyeshadow can be more fun. I wish I have all the day to create different colors to post on my webstore. But unfortunately, I can only create few colors during the weekend. I have a created 3 beautiful Matte Eyeshadow and I am so excited to use it.

I made Matte Pastel Blue, Matte Pastel Green and Matte Orange. I had a hard time making the a Pastel Orange so I might probably play around with it next weekend. For the meantime, I made a Matte Orange for those who love using orange for eyeshadow. My Orange Matte is more like a red orange. I love it.

Mineral Makeup Ingredients For Sensitive, Oily and Acne Prone Skin


There are many women who are not aware of what ingredients they should avoid and look for that will suit their skin. Although Mineral Makeup are known to be gentle on skin, the formulation and type of ingredients added will give different effects of our skin. Not all Mineral Makeup are suitable for everyone. As I have always been emphasizing, we should know what's on the products that we buy.

If you have oily skin, you should avoid Mineral Makeup Foundation that contain Serecite. Serecite is a mild Mineral Ingrediens however your face will turn into color gray when your skin starts to get oily.

If you have an Oily Skin, you should also look for Mineral Makeup Foundation that contain Silica, because this is highly absorbant and used for oil control.

If you have a Sensitive Skin, you should be aware that Boron Nitride are known to cause some pimple breakout and irritation. Some ingredients that produce shimmer and sparkle can also cause clogging of pores and skin irritation. So it is important to take or try few amounts before buying large sizes.

Not all Mineral Makeup contain this type of Ingredients, but if you have a Sensitive, Oily Skin and Acne Prone Skin, you must be aware on how these ingredients could affect your skin and appearance.

A Pure Mineral Makeup Foundation should only contain up to 7 Mineral Ingredients which are Titanium Dioxide, Mica, Magnesium Stearate, Zinc Oxide, Koalin Clay and Iron Oxide. The more Ingredients added, the more chance of getting your skin irritated.

If you have Sensitive, Oily and Acne Prone Skin, try my Ultimate Loose Mineral Foundation. It has less ingredients, very mild on skin. Few amount will give you a silky and flawless look. Visit my webstore All Natural Cosmetics 4u and learn more about Natural Cosmetics

Mineral Foundation For Oily Skin This Summer


Summer is on it's way so I am preparing my oily skin for this season. I am so happy that I was able to improve the formula of my Mineral Foundations. I also changed the names of my Mineral Foundation for better understanding on each of my Mineral Foundation before purchasing any. For those who have Sensitive, Oily and Acne Prone skin like me, try using my Ultimate Matte Loose Mineral Foundation. It is very light and subtle on skin. I made my Ultimate Matte Loose Mineral Foundation specially for those who have Sensitive, Oily and Acne Prone skin. I know exactly how hard it is to find a Makeup that will suit this type of skin.

My Ultimate Matte Loose Mineral Foundation is what I am prefer to use this summer. It has better natural coverage and adhesion. I also added the ingredients that controls the oil production and shine which is very advisable to use during summer plus it has a built in Sunscreen protection. I am so surprise how it controls the shine and oil production on my face for longer hours. For 4 hours, I didn't see the shine on my face that I usually have after about an hour wearing my makeup.

So for those who have Sensitive, Oily and Acne Prone skin, it is very important to use a Mineral Makeup that will suit your skin specially during summer where skin produces more oil that can cause blackheads and whiteheads and eventually pimples. Expensive makeups might be good for a lot of people. But if you have Sensitive, Oily and Acne Prone skin, elegant and expensive makeup is not what should look for. Look and know what's on the product that you use. My Ultimate Loose Mineral Foundation contain only the 7 basic Pure Mineral Ingredients. Less ingredients means less chance of getting bad skin reactions.

The Right Mineral Foundation For Sensitive Skin


I was just reading an article about some Mineral Makeup products that can create a pimple breakout and allergy due to too many ingredients. It is really indeed very confusing to know which of these Mineral Makeup should we buy that will suit our skin type.

This is the reason why I created different formula for Mineral Foundation. Because I know how it feels to have a very sensitive skin. Not all Mineral Makeup will suit your skin, so it is essential to know what are the ingredients included on the product that we are buy.

If you are someone who are afraid to use Mineral Makeup with too many ingredients because of your sensitive skin. You can try my Ultimate Mineral Foundation. This contain only 7 basic Mineral Ingredient of Titanium Dioxide, Mica, Magnesium Stearate, Zinc Oxide, Koalin Clay, Silica and Iron Oxide. These are just the basic ingredients for every Mineral Makeup. If you are looking basically for a simple coverage for minor blemishes, this might be good for you. This will give you a Matte appearance. But if you want to have a slight shimmer, you can mixed the Ultimate Shimmer for slight glow on your face.

All our Mineral Makeup products are made up of pure Minerals. But some may still have some allergic reaction. Free samples are available for skin test before buying large sizes. Visit my webstore at All Natural Cosmetics 4u and learn more about our products.

How To Choose MIneral Makeup For You

  • I've done few changes on the Formula of my Mineral Foundation and on my webstore as well. I want to focus my Mineral Makeup and Facial Care products for Sensitive, Oily and Acne Prone skin since this has always been my problem.

Elegant Loose Mineral Foundation this will give full coverage and extra adhesion.

  • Opaque Matte- for natural matte look.


-Ultimate Loose Mineral Foundation this will provide translucent coverage yet good enough to cover minor blemishes.

- Premium Loose Mineral Foundation for superior coverage and to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

  • Flawless with give you a normal slight glow.
  • Flawless Glow- for extra glow and shimmer...SOON!!


The Opaque Matte and Opaque Shimmer is what I personally use. This has more natural effect. I love the way my Opaque Shimmer give glow on my skin. I always use Matte Foundation due to my oily skin. I have been wanting to buy Foundations with a little sparkle but afraid to use one. Now with the added ingredients that controls the oiliness of my skin, I was able to create and use a foundation that has a sparkling effects on my oily skin. Since the formula for Opaque Foundation is good for light to dark skin color, expect more colors on this type of foundation for light to dark skin colors.



If you have a dry skin, I highly recommend my Premium Mineral Foundations. Because of the whitening ingredients added, I recommend this foundation for light skin color. I made this especially for light to medium skin color. Only light colors will be available for this type of foundation. This will give you more glow, adhesion and coverage. Ingredients that controls oil are also added, so you have to tell me if you have very dry skin so I can adjust the formula for you.
