A: As the seasons change from Winter to Summer so will your complexion. We've included two shades so that you always have a perfect match for your complexion. Even though our minerals are super forgiving, sometimes customers will blend their minerals to create a customized shade.
Q: How long will Mineral Hygienics foundation last?
A: Mineral Hygienics foundation lasts all day. You can go all day, and into the night with out needing to touch up or re-apply. Mineral Hygienics is water resistant so it wont fade during work outs and even continues to provide flawless coverage and protection in hot humid weather. Best of all…Mineral Hygienics is so light that you wont even notice it's on.
Q: How can Mineral Hygienics provide such great coverage without looking thick and cakey?
A: Mineral Hygienics actually lays on top of the skin, rather than in the skin. Many super light minerals overlap each other to provide a super sheer finish. Mineral Hygienics will reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and imperfections. Traditional cream based foundations actually do the opposite, they mimic your skin and all of the imperfections that we are trying so hard to hide. Mineral Hygienics uses a natural product called mica which reflects light to give your skin a natural, luminous look.
Q: Whats the difference between Mineral Hygienics and the traditional makeup that I use?
A: Traditional foundations cover the skin with a thick compound that acts like an icing or glazing. They wear off and are absorbed into the skin. Traditional makeup fills pores and fine lines which can cause acne, and prevents the skin from breathing. They are heavy and wear out the skin which makes it look tired and aged. Mineral Hygienics can cover a wide range of skin imperfections, even sun spots, rosacea and acne are able to be covered giving you a clean clear complexion. Apply as much as you want, or as little as you want to achieve the look of flawless, natural, beautiful skin.
Q: How much product is each jar?
A: Traditionally cosmetic products are measured/weighed by the amount of product in the actual container. Since the weight of our mineral weights can dramatically vary it makes it very difficult to give the weight of each color. Due to the popularity of the mineral makeup jar sizing system our measurements are given in this system to give a more accurate weight/volume of product in our jars. The Products and corresponding jar size are listed below!
Q: Does Mineral Hygienics test products on animals?
A: We do NOT test any of our products on animals.
Q: How do I care for my brushes?
A: Cleaning your brush will help extend its life. Use a mild facial cleanser or body wash to clean your brush. Gently swirl the brush until it is clean, many users find that the inside of their palm is a good place to swirl. Rinse your brush and reshape the bristles, letting is sit on the edge of your countertop.
