Best Mineral Makeup

With so many options on the market, finding the best mineral makeup can be challenging. But certain brands are greatly superior to others.

Natural mineral makeup products are lightweight yet provide superior coverage and are actually good for your skin. Mineral foundations have been shown to be especially beneficial for acne prone or sensitive skin.

Many dermatologists report that because mineral makeup frequently eliminates classic "irritants" – like fragrances, binders, synthetic dyes, and preservatives -- it is considered "purer" and can be kinder to the skin. Natural mineral makeup is non-comedogenic and is not as aggravating to acne prone complexions as "traditional makeups."

But with so many brands available, what really are the best mineral makeup products?
