10 Reasons to Use Advanced Mineral Makeup
As many of my readers know, I am a huge lover of mineral makeup. But with so many options, how is an individual to choose? While I have come across a handful of fabulous brands over the course of my lifetime, one that has really stood out to me over the past year has been Advanced Mineral Makeup. I recently had a chance to chat with Annie Mayo, Film/TV makeup artist and Founder of Advanced Mineral Makeup about her line, and I wanted to share some seriously fabulous reasons why this brand is definitely worth your time, with you.
1: Artist Created for Artists - If you have watched hit shows like Grey's Anatomy and NCIS (to name a couple), then you have seen Annie's makeup in action. Indeed, Annie is the creator of the High Deinition makeup used by the actors on these shows, and has now made that makeup available for anyone wanting “close up,” camera ready coverage.
2: Minimal to Medium to Max Coverage - Annie's makeup makes it easy to achieve your desired coverage level, meaning you can go minimalist natural, perfectly professional, or all-out glam.
3: Airbrush Look and Feel - Advanced Mineral Makeup uses a special technology that allows you to glide the makeup over the skin, creating a smooth and even look and feel.
4: Maximum Staying Power - Advance Mineral Makeup was formulated with activity in mind (hello, actors the Grey's Anatomy characters often did some serious maneuvering and were always on-the-go). The makeup products in the line were tested for water-resistance and their transfer-proof ability, meaning it will stay on until you take it off at the end of the day.
5: Anti-Acne - If you like the benefits of a BB Cream (Blemish Balm), but crave the coverage capability of a foundation, this is a fabulous option. Annie's foundations are oil-free, non-clogging, toxin and pollutant fighting, and do not hold bacteria on the skin. This means you can expect your skin to remain beautiful and not broken out.
6: Most Refined Textures - Advanced Mineral Makeup uses extreme milling processes, so you can enjoy a soft, velvety feel and look.
7: Age Reducing - Annie's formulas use light reflection, sun protection, and antioxidants for a luminescent, youthful appearance. Another bonus: her formula encourages collagen production!
8: Minimizes Redness, Dark Spots, and Inflammation - The 100% pigmentation of AMM's foundations deliver a beautiful, high coverage finish, with a "low visibility" look. Their formulas also help to diminishes puffiness, swelling, and irritation.
9: Alternative to Traditional Makeup - If you are looking for a 100% Vegan formula that does not contain chemicals, preservatives, fragrances, fillers, binders, talc, petroleum, coal tar, parabens, and toxins, Advanced Mineral Makeup may be jus the line for you. They use ingredients like Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Zinc Oxide, Antioxidants, Vitamins, Grape Seed Oil, Amino Acids, Hyaluronic Acid and Human Identical Lipids for a bright, glowing complexion.
10: Miracle Color Correcting - This is incredibly important, especially if you are purchasing your makeup online! Annie offers advanced neutral colors for easy color selection. Peep the shade finder below for celeb comparisons!

I personally love Advanced Mineral Makeup! The products really do deliver a beautiful finish (plus some fabulous skin benefits), and I am especially fond of the fact that they are compatible for most sensitive, acne, and rosacea prone skin types. If you are in the market for a new foundation, concealer, etc., I definitely recommend checking out this fabulous line.
