Elite Mineral Makeup: Concealer Picks

It’s a Tuesday so it’s cosmetics time!

As usual, I’ll be talking about collections from Elite Minerals. Today, I’m focusing on concealers. But, what are concealers anyway? And how important are they in our makeup routine?

Concealers, from the word conceal, you’ll already know that it’s role is to conceal something. Concealers are used to cover blemishes in the skin such as acne, blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, unwanted marks and other stuff that you want to stay hidden. Concealers hide imperfections. Therefore, we can totally say that concealers are the magic in the makeup world and are a must have.

It is important to choose a good concealer. One that goes well with our skin tone, foundation and something that doesn’t only hide our blemishes but reduces it. Some concealers found in local drugstores are harmful and instead of concealing breakouts, they induce them. So be very careful in finding the one that fits you best.

These are the following concealers I chose from the concealer collection of Elite Mineral‘s catalog.

1. Natural

This Natural shade concealer is best for those who are fair to light skinned individuals. You can use it everyday as it’s safe and can even heal your breakouts.

2. Light Beige

Light Beige shade is perfect for under the eyes. If you haven’t had enough sleep due to partying all night or the piles of untouched homework since the beginning of the week, try this.

3. Medium Tan

Medium Tan goes well for dark skinned individuals or those who uses dark shades of foundation. This is also good for under the eyes. It also reduces redness in the face.

4. Ultra Light

If you have skin as light as snow, Ultra Light is perfect for you. This is a very unique and quite hard to find shade for a concealer. So if you want to be the next snow white, this is for you.

The best thing about mineral makeup is that they came from organic materials so its less likely to have reactions towards the skin. Elite Minerals have 83% return rate from customers so you can truly stand behind their brand and products.

Elite Mineral Makeup: Foundation Picks

It’s Thursday so it’s Cosmetics night!

Tonight, I’ll be focusing on one of the most basic type of makeup, the foundation. Foundation is a coloured cosmetic applied on the face to create an even, natural look. It is used also to hide blemishes and sometimes to change the natural skin color. It is the first makeup we put on after cleaning our face and putting on moisturizers. Foundation is therefore one of the most, if not the most, important makeup we have. There are lots of types of Foundation. There are available in liquid type, mousse, cake and minerals. We will be focusing on the mineral type of foundation.

I am featuring Elite Mineral Makeup again. I just can’t seem to stop loving their collections!  The all natural, no animal tested products are just love.

So here are my picks for their Foundation (they have tons of different shades, check it here)…

1. Fairly Light

This shade is used best on very fair and light individuals. It has a warm undertone so it will fit perfectly.

2. Light Beige

Light Beige is a darker shade than the Natural foundation. This is probably my favorite as it’s best for my type of skin tone, yellow pigmented. Asians will do well on this.

3. Deep

Deep is a red pigmented dark foundation. This is used best on medium to dark skinned individuals.

4. Natural

This is probably the most popular shade in choosing Foundation. It’s also the most popular in Elite Minerals. This is best to use on light to medium light skin tones. This is definitely a must buy!

5. Honey

Honey is best for individuals with pink hues on their skin. So if you have a pinkish face, try Honey to compliment it.

Elite Mineral Makeup: Matte Eye Color Picks

I love Eye Shadows. For me, they are the crème de la crème when talking about makeup. That’s why when I found out that Elite Mineral Makeup have variety of eye colors, I was so happy. But I became ecstatic when I found out that they have Matte Eye Colors! Matte makeup are really nice as they bring out the colors. It really stands out and not that easy to be smudged or erased. So if you wanna go to a night out where’s there is so much moving, try matte makeup. If you don’t like putting makeup again and again, go for matte. If you want to stand out to an evening party, matte makeup will surely help.

So here are my matte eye color picks from Elite Mineral Makeup

1. Dirty Blonde

I’m not really a fan of eye pencils, the ones you use in lining your brows. I use eye shadows instead. And Dirty Blonde is a perfect candidate for that. It’s light to medium tan brown so it matches my hair color which is Ash Brown. So if you have light to dark brown hair, try Dirty Blonde, whether you want it for your brows or for a natural eye color, it will complete your look.

2. Forest

I fell in love with the color when I saw this. Perfect for nature lovers and outgoing people like me. Forest will help you create a sexy vibe when used in making smokey eyes. And since our world today has leaped so much in beauty and fashion, you can use this one even for everyday makeup just to look more stylish and creative.

3. Fantasy

This violet color has brown undertones making it perfect for everyday or evening makeup. Fantasy is a great partner if you are wearing earth colors.

4. Gothic

I love Taylor Momsen. If you have been reading my blog for a long time, you know that already. This Gothic Matte color reminds me of her beauty and makeup style. This color is perfect for the smokey eyes effect. You can use it as a liner too. This is probably the most used color in the makeup world and I really recommend everyone to use it.

Cosmetic Feature: Elite Mineral Make Up

Anyone who knows me personally knows I’m a sucker for makeup and cosmetic products. I have products from Clinique, Hema (Amsterdam), L’Oreal, Maybelline, Nichido, NYX, Revlon and Careline (a local brand). Some were bought, the rest were given as gifts. Most, if not all, of my cosmetic products are either synthetic or those tested in animals. I have no idea on mineral makeup as the only store available here offering such product is The Body Shop, which is quite pricy. However, there is a rising cosmetic company that offers makeup from ORGANIC AND 100% NATURAL ingredients, the Elite Mineral Make Up.

Elite Mineral Make Up products are from high quality minerals. Materials are not from China and no chemical-animal tested ingredients whatsoever. Most of the people I know using their products complimented that they are tout naturel. No itchiness or any skin irritations have been reported from using their products. And from that perspective, I can say it’s even better than the Bare Essential ones. For the next few weeks, I’ll be talking about my picks on Elite Mineral MakeUp products. From their matte eye products (which I’m so excited about as I love their collection!) to their glimmering blushes and uber nice lipsticks. So stay tune and while you’re at it visit their website, http://www.mineralmakeupme.com, or click their badge at the right side bar of this blog.

Happy Valentine’s everyone! Happy Desire Day to all of us!
