Fall Beauty Trend: Magical Mineral Makeup

Fall comes alive as the most magical time of the year. The leaves turn into colorful kaleidoscopes, pumpkins become abundant, and the weather changes from hot to not. 

Faster than you can say abracadabra, fall beauty trends start to emerge as well. One we hope won't pull a vanishing act on us anytime soon is mineral makeup. What first began as a best kept secret in spas across the country has now gained mainstream appeal and grown in popularity.

Mineral makeup contains a magic bag of tricks. It consists of natural ingredients from the earth, such as zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, which protect against the sun's harmful rays. Plus, these formulations often include healing antioxidants such as pomegranate seed extract, aloe vera, white and green tea extracts, and vitamins A, C and E.

Mineral makeup suits all skin types--and that's no hocus pocus. Its anti-inflammatory and non-irritation properties make it an ideal choice for people with hyperpigmentation, or sensitive, oily, acne, dry or rosacea-prone conditions. Another benefit includes its ability to absorb excess oil, so your pores won't clog.

Best of all, loose, liquid and pressed mineral cosmetics offer the appearance of an even skin tone and a youthful glow. For those with busy lifestyles, its weightless-like coverage lasts for long periods without touchups. It can also be used after laser surgery, microdermabrasion and chemical peels.

Take a look at the latest mineral makeup products on the market this fall. They don't need any smoke or mirrors to work their magic.
