RAW minerals ™ All Natural MINERAL MAKEUP
Loose mineral makeup is comprised of naturally occurring minerals that have been used for cosmetic purposes for thousands of years. These minerals are mined from around the world, purified, and crushed into fine powders.
Cosmetic companies use these same minerals to add color, texture and luster to everything from eye shadow and lipstick to hair color. They're even in your tube of toothpaste! Many of these minerals have a special luster that, when applied to the skin, give the face a lovely glow, lending a healthy, youthful appearance to blemished or aged skin.
Loose mineral cosmetics are catching on in popularity for a very good reason. It is the most natural makeup available on the market. Just think about how your face feels when you apply a liquid foundation.
In order to create a liquid foundation, manufacturers add water, oil, waxes, petrochemicals, synthetic humectants, gums, and fillers (like talc) to the mineral colorants. They also add dyes and preservatives. Our loose, dry minerals don't require preservatives, and all of those other irritating ingredients are completely unnecessary. The natural pigments blend easily on the skin and provide superior coverage due to the lack of cheap fillers.
Large cosmetics companies are corporations that are designed to generate profit. Your skin's health is not their concern. Natural minerals cost much more than cheap synthetic fillers and dyes. The bottom line of these corporations is profit. Ours is quality, purity, and performance. We provide natural cosmetic products that will enable women to achieve the look that they want without chemicals.
If you have sensitive skin, such as rosacea or acne, and have had bad experiences with cosmetics in the past, then natural mineral makeup is for you.RAW minerals is Non-Comedogenic & Non-Acnegenic. While even a good quality natural cosmetic does not carry a guarantee, the likelihood of a reaction is rare. The most irritating ingredients in cosmetics are talc, dye, and perfume. Our products are free of all of these ingredients.
Our mineral foundation has the best coverage of any cosmetic on the market. Using our mineral foundation will transform your life. Instead of worrying about unattractive blemishes or running to the mirror every few hours to do touchups, with just a quick brush of the powder, your face will appear completely unblemished, from morning until night.
Even more importantly, the health and condition of your skin will actually improve with regular use of our mineral foundation. The minerals not only soothe inflamed skin, but have superior oil control. Our foundation is virtually waterproof and wear proof.
Comedogenic items are capable of triggering non-inflammatory acne lesion (comedones.) It refers to a product and/or substance that promotes acne.
Non reactive for porous skin. Will help conceal acne while promoting healthier chemical-free skin. Loading chemicals onto your delicate face will only help to trap bacteria, promote breakouts of acne and suffocates the skin while it is trying to heal and breathe.
More information can be found at Acne.org. This site is an unbiased, free resource for information about your skin.
Rosacea is a chronic skin condition involving inflammation of the cheeks, nose, chin, forehead, or eyelids. It may appear as redness, prominent spider-like blood vessels, swelling, or skin eruptions similar to acne.
One of the main ingredients in our loose mineral foundation is micronized Titanium Dioxide. This naturally occurring mineral effectively blocks both UVA and UVB rays, without an irritating chemical sunscreen. Our products have a very high SPF and we recommend wearing a sunscreen of some form on your face every day. Melanoma is on the rise and can be fatal. Also, if you notice tiny lines on your face, these symptoms of aging come primarily from sun-damage, not from dryness.
Compare the cost of one of our multi-purpose powders to even a cheap eye shadow, and the value will immediately be apparent. Our loose mineral powders can be used as eye shadow, eyeliner, lip gloss, blush and nail polish. If you use them every day, they will last you at least a year. Just one eye shadow at a department store costs three times more than our mineral powder. Our mineral foundation lasts up to six months and acts as concealer, powder, and sunscreen, all in one. Compare our cost to similar makeup lines and you will notice a savings of almost 50%.
Our suppliers never use animal testing of any kind, and our ingredients are free of talc, dyes, carmine, and bismuth oxychloride, common irritants in cosmetics.
What makes our Mineral Cosmetics different than other mineral makeup brands?
Ours are micro-formulated with a three-fold focus: The products must be long-wearing, healthy and non-irritating, and create a fresh, youthful look when applied.
Loose Mineral Foundation
Recommended brush: kabuki
Our mineral foundation shades encompass the full spectrum of skin tones. Our mineral foundation formula does not contain bismuth oxychloride, so the finish is matte, and there is much less likelihood of irritation.
About the Products
Loose mineral foundation is the purest form of foundation available. It is talc-free, chemical-free and dye-free. It is ideal for acne sufferers as it provides complete coverage of blemishes at the same time helping to heal and calm inflammations. This foundation can be used after recent plastic surgery and is the most hypo-allergenic cosmetic on the market. It hides skin conditions such as rosacea and spider veins yet feels utterly weightless!
In addition, our loose mineral foundation has a high SPF factor and is nearly waterproof. It's an excellent sports make-up and is also ideal for women with active lifestyles.
While it is a powder foundation, it is not drying. It seals in moisture for those with dry skin yet doesn't clog pores for those with oily skin. It also won't "break up" in response to oil, but remains flawless throughout the day.
And finally, the glow skin receives from the minerals takes years off of a woman's face. Some women don't recognize themselves.
Applying Loose Mineral Foundation
Tap a small amount of powder into the top and swirl your Kabuki brush into it. Tap the bottom of the handle with the brush head facing upward on a hard surface (e.g. bathroom counter). This settles the powder into the brush head. Firmly spread powder on clean, dry skin to evenly blend pigments.
For blemishes, a separate concealer is not needed. Use a shader brush to apply small amounts to the problem areas and blend well. For those with dry, flaky skin, loose mineral foundation can be blended with our specially formulated cream to create a cream foundation. First moisturize as usual, then tap a small amount of powder into the palm of the hand. Add a drop of moisturizer. Blend the two products together until a smooth, creamy consistency is achieved. Use your fingers or make-up wedge to apply.
About the Products
To know which setting powder to purchase, please refer to the suggestions below:
If you wear:
1, 5, 3, or 7, then Petalia, the pink setting powder is the appropriate choice. If, however one of these foundations wears well, but is a little too pink for your skin, then the light yellow setting powder could be used as an adjuster to correct the finish.
If you wear:
4, 2, or 6, then Angella, the light yellow setting powder would be the best choice.
If you wear:
8, 11, 9, or10, then Tawn, the medium yellow setting powder would be the best choice. Apply the same way you apply the foundation. This can be used over and under your foundation both.
About the Products
Our blushes are made from pure mica, so while the texture is extraordinarily soft, the color is concentrated. Use just a few crumbs on a cotton ball or a blush brush. Make sure to tap all of the excess powder off of the brush, until there is just a faint dusting on the tips of the bristles, then gently glide over the cheeks. Very little blending is needed.
Loose mineral blushes are very concentrated and should be applied sparingly. The simplest way to apply them is with a cotton ball. Press the cotton ball onto the sifter, then tap the jar so a little bit of blush powder gets on the cotton ball. Then gently glide the color over the apples of the cheek, and blend. If you prefer to use a brush, a fan brush is the best option. A traditional blush brush isn't recommended, as it picks up too much of the powder.
Multi-Purpose Mineral Powders
Eye Shadow ~ Use any color from our collection as eye shadow. Simply dip an eye shadow brush into the desired color and apply to your eyelids. Choose a lighter color as a highlighter to apply under the brow. Use a darker color in the crease as a shader.
Blush ~ Because our product is so pure, the use of a blush brush will only waste your product. Instead, use a cotton ball and lightly touch the tip into the desired color. Apply along the cheekbone and blend well.
Eye Liner ~ Dip your liner brush into water. then wet applicator into the desired color. Mix the powder and water together on the back of your hand or in a separate container to create a creamy liquid liner. Dip the eyeliner brush into the liquid and carefully apply to the upper and/or lower lids, staying as close to the lashes as possible.
Lip Color ~ Dip your lip brush into your clear lip gloss/lip balm and then into the desired color. Apply the mix to your lips and blend well. Add more powder to deepen the color. Our cocoa butter vitamin E stick can also be used.
Nail Polish ~ Because our pigment contains no dye, you do not need to apply a base coat. Simply use clear nail polish and dip the brush into the desired color and paint onto nails. For a darker color, use more powder. You can also mix our pigments into colored nail polish to change its tint.
Body Shimmer/Highlighter ~ Use a cotton ball and lightly touch it into the desired color. Dust the powder onto your shoulder, face, chest, etc., for a healthy glow. Certain colors can also be used as bronzers.
About the Products
Add a healthy, sun-bronzed color to your cheeks with our silky, gorgeous bronzers. Just a touch of these powders will wake up a tired or pale complexion. They can also double as face powders if they match the skin tone. You won't get an orangey look, but rather a soft, warm glow.
Remove the seal from the sifter, and place the bronzer brush directly against the sifter holes. Turn both upside down and tap the jar just a little so some powders gets on the brush bristles.
Lift the brush and gently tap the bottom of it on a flat surface to settle the powder into the head. Gently brush the bronzer on cheeks, cheekbones, and anywhere else you want to add warm tones. The only mistake you can make is to use too much. For darker color, apply a second layer.
RAW Mattes for Eyes
About the Products
RAW Matte Shadow for Eyes are deeply pigmented colors made primarily with iron oxides. The heavier texture allows for more dramatic looks, and the neutral palette is a wonderful addition to the rich pastels and earth tones of our multi-purpose powder collection. A soft powdery effect can be achieved with the lightest shades, and the darker shades can be used as rich, sultry liners, or as smoky shades to deepen and emphasize the eye. They are very concentrated, so only a touch of powder is needed. The color can be intensified by layering it. These products are very long-wearing, and will not irritate the sensitive eye area due to the purity of the pigments used. As always, our products are dye, preservative, and talc-free.
RAW Mattes for Eyes can be used as eye shadow or contour color, or as liquid liner. To use as an eye shadow, tip the container at an angle, and tap it until some powder rests on the edge of the sifter. Gently swirl the firm shadow brush into the powder, and then tap the handle of the brush onto the side of the container, letting excess powder fall back into the jar. Apply the shadow with short, firm strokes, then follow up with a swipe of the blending brush until all visible lines are softened. For liquid liner, wet the angled liner brush, then dip the wet brush into the powder. Make a creamy paste on the back of your hand or in the top of the container. The consistency should not be runny. Then trace a thin line around the lash, staying as close to the lash as possible. Once the liner has dried, it can be left as-is, or smudged with the firm shadow brush for a softer effect.
RAW Mattes for Eyes
A palette of neutral pastels to deep smoky tones with a cashmere texture that blends easily on the skin. Ultra mattes for eyes have a soft, feathery look, and unlike other colors for the eyes, have no shimmer or sparkle. They can be used dry as eye shadows, and wet as creamy liquid liners with wonderful staying powder.
If your foundation appears pasty, here are a few possibilities:
1. The brush! Unfortunately, the right brush is an absolute necessity when applying loose mineral foundation. Our brush is especially made to have a very high density of hair- short, firm, and soft to boot. Think of how hard it is to spread cold butter on untoasted bread with a plastic knife. This is what is happening when you're using the brushes (however expensive and high-quality they may be) that you already own. Even bronzer brushes that look similar may not have firm or dense enough hair to accomplish the task. The result? Too much makeup, not well spread, sticking in all of the wrong places, definitely not natural-looking!
2. Too much product on the brush: Mineral makeup is very concentrated. It is made up of pure pigment; the same pigments that cosmetics companies use to add color to pressed and liquid foundations. Because there is little if any 'filler" in this type of powder, it is imperative that you put just a little bit of powder on your brush and use that on one cheek. Buff it in well in a circular motion before applying more. How much is enough? If you follow the basic mineral foundation instructions found on the loose mineral foundation product page, you should get the right amount on the brush: Basically, you press the head of the kabuki, or flat-top (our favorite) directly against the holes of the sifter, tip the whole unit upside down, tap the jar a bit, and then lift the brush off of the sifter. There should be a light dusting of powder on the brush head, and that amount is sufficient to cover at least one cheek, if not the whole face. You can always add another layer, so start with less.
3. The wrong shade: This is especially an issue with women of color. If you have a golden undertone, and the color you apply has a blue or neutral undertone, your face may appear grayish or pasty. It is not necessarily that the product is too light, or has the "wrong" formula for your skin, just the wrong undertone. Don't assume that mineral foundation doesn't "work" on ethnic skin. Be persistent until you find a shade that at least comes close. Blending loose mineral foundation shades together is as simple as shaking the jar, and blending one color with another may achieve that perfect shade that you're looking for!
4. Not enough "buffing": Have you ever watched someone (usually a guy!) buff a coat of wax onto their car? They buff for a loooong time! This creates a smooth, silky appearance that simply applying the wax would never achieve. Do the same with your mineral foundation. Buffing with the brush actually brings out the qualities of the minerals. Use a firm (Don't be afraid to be firm, our brushes are very soft) touch, and in a circular motion, blend, or spread the makeup around the cheeks, down the jaw line, over the nose. Do this several times, and you will begin to see your face glow and your skin look flawless and utterly natural.
