Concealer is a diverse product that can be used for a number of purposes. Just a small amount goes a long way when highlighting certain areas of the face, such as the forehead, nose, center of the chin, or top of the cheekbones. It can also be used to enhance more complex makeup applications or to offset the natural shadows that develop under the eyes. While the multi-purpose concealer is no doubt a beauty essential, not all products offer the same level of quality. Here are just a few things you should know about concealers.
Mineral Makeup is a Healthier Option When shopping for concealers, you’re bound to come across countless products. If given the choice, mineral makeup is often the healthier option. Mineral makeup naturally binds to oils instead of water, making the makeup water resistant. Conventional makeup also contains a variety of additives, oils, and chemicals which can irritate sensitive skin and lead to acne breakouts. Skin nourishing mineral makeup is designed to protect, correct, and cover blemishes without aggravating sensitive skin. Many mineral-based cosmetics are also non-comedogenic, which means the product is formulated to help reduce the blockage of visible pores. What puts mineral makeup a step ahead of traditional cosmetics is the absence of talc. Talc particles are often added to makeup to bulk it up, allowing companies to create more product with less pigment. With talc is used, a heavier application of makeup must be used to achieve the desired coverage and color. As talc is heavier than mineral pigments, it absorbs into lines and pores more quickly which can irritate sensitive skin and create uneven coverage. In comparison, most mineral cosmetics will not settle into facial lines and pores for a more even look. Mineral makeup is also a better choice for those suffering from acne and other skin conditions.
