High-Quality Mineral Makeup Products (FAQs)


Why should I use mineral makeup?

The best mineral makeup works well for all ages and skin types. It is especially gentle on sensitive skin, making it an ideal choice for anyone seeking a more natural, sustainable and thoughtful alternative to traditional makeup.

Mineral makeup is incredibly easy to apply and offers a range of tones, styles and forms, making it the perfect option for salons and makeup artists who want to provide their clients with the best products on the market. Mineral makeup from Face By R delivers further skin benefits such as sun protection and deep hydration.

Is mineral makeup better than other choices?

Mineral makeup and traditional makeup both have their uses — whether one is better than the other often depends on your preferences. If your ideal makeup is all-natural, eco-friendly and high-quality, our line of mineral makeup products may be the best choice for you. Additionally, mineral makeup may be better suited if you or your clients have sensitive skin, as it is made without parabens, fragrances, or chemicals that can irritate the skin.

How long does mineral makeup last?

Unopened, powdered mineral makeup can last indefinitely, as it doesn’t sustain microbial or bacterial growth. However, not all mineral makeup products are created equally, so it is still recommended that you use your makeup within the specified time. Any mineral makeup that has been opened and used should generally be disposed of within a year for best results.

The lifespan of your mineral makeup will also depend on how it is stored. Mineral makeup products should be tightly closed and stored in a location with limited moisture, light and air circulation. This will lengthen the lifespan of the makeup.

What is mineral makeup made from?

The best mineral makeup is composed of all-natural ingredients with no added chemicals or synthetic ingredients. At Face By R, we create our mineral makeup in Australia using only high-quality, natural, locally sourced ingredients such as minerals, vitamins, plant extracts and natural oils. You can find a list of ingredients for each product we sell on our site.

Is mineral makeup easy to apply?

Yes, mineral makeup is very easy to apply. It is easy to blend, layer and work with, making it a great choice for beginners as well as experts. The only thing to remember is to use a light hand and resist over-applying products — with mineral makeup, less is more.

How long will mineral makeup last once applied?

When properly applied, your mineral makeup should last all day without caking, drying, creasing or moving. Many people use mineral makeup in Australia because minerals are naturally water-resistant and don’t spread or transfer easily, making them a wonderful choice for warmer seasons.

Can you use mineral makeup to look dewy?

Yes, mineral makeup is incredibly diverse and can be used to help create a wide variety of looks, including a dewy appearance. By using certain face mineral makeup colours and products found at Face By R, you can instantly create a luminous glow that mimics the popular dewy look.

Is mineral makeup okay to use on acne-prone skin?

Yes, mineral makeup is a great choice for acne-prone skin because it contains fewer unnatural ingredients than traditional makeup does. In addition, some mineral makeup products — such as those that contain zinc oxide — can have anti-inflammatory properties that help soothe acne.

Mineral makeup is also a great choice for acne-prone skin because it is lightweight and breathable whilst still offering full coverage for spots, blemishes and discoloured skin.

Does mineral makeup cause dry skin?

Some argue that mineral makeup can exacerbate dry skin, but some of the best mineral makeup products — such as those at Face By R — can help combat it. Our makeup is specifically designed to resist clogging pores and to hydrate and nourish skin so that you and your clients can wear it without worrying about a dry and uncomfortable experience.

Does mineral makeup provide sun protection?

Even the best mineral makeup is no replacement for sunscreen. However, many mineral makeup products that contain ingredients such as zinc oxide or titanium dioxide can act as natural barriers to the sun. Many people use mineral makeup in Australia because it can help provide basic protection from light exposure to the sun.

Does mineral makeup cost more than other makeup choices?

High-quality luxury products such as mineral makeup are often more expensive than traditional options, but most users agree that the price is well worth it. Mineral makeup may not be as cheap as some traditional products that are full of inexpensive fillers and preservatives, but it offers a higher-quality appearance and is much better for your skin than other options.

Where does Face By R source makeup ingredients?

We ensure that all our ingredients are vegan, cruelty-free and sourced locally from other Australian-owned businesses. By obtaining our ingredients in a more sustainable way, we can ensure that our product range benefits not only you and your clients but the planet as well.

Will I find my shade/tone at Face By R?

Yes, we pride ourselves on offering a diverse range of makeup shades and tones at Face By R. If you can’t find an exact match, don’t worry — it’s incredibly easy for you to blend mineral makeup to create a look that’s perfect for you.
