- Getting Started
Getting Started with L.A. Minerals is actually EASIER than liquid or cream makeup.
Mineral makeup shades are very forgiving.
Our mineral makeup kits and most individual products are all based on the skin tones below.
Now lets decide what your skin TYPE is...
What is Your Skin Type?
We have customized starter kits for every skin type.
Normal Skin: you rarely break out. Your skin is neither oily or dry
Hollywood or NoHoGlo foundation
Hollywood has a natural finish and buildable coverage. NoHoGlo has a dewey/glowey finish with light coverage.
Oily Skin: you're an oil slick by noon. You buy stock in oil absorbing papers and powders
Valley Girl Mineral Foundation Formula- soaks up oli, good coverage.
You may also want to purchase our Oil Control Powder - a finishing powder that helps soak up extra oil all day long
Acneic Skin: you break out often. Some decent coverage would be nice
Valley Girl Mineral Foundation - it soaks up oil and contains allantoin, a natural antiseptic and skin soother. Does NOT contain bismuth oxychloride (found in bare minerals and most other brands. Bismuth Oxychloride causes redness, itching, and cystic acne)
You may want to choose our Green Goddess Hide It Concealer for covering redness.
Dry Skin: your skin can be flaky and dull.
Hollywood Foundation - includes silk powder and other minerals to hydrate your skin
NoHoGlo Foundation leaves a glowey/dewy finish.
