  • • Is Beautiful Me make up cruelty free?
    • Absolutely. We're proud to say that Beautiful Me products and the ingredients in them have not been tested on animals. The Beautiful Me range has the approval of the BUAV (British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection). Let's help to stamp out animal cruelty. Lend your support and visit the BUAV website www.buav.org
  • • What if the foundation samples that I ordered arent the right colour for me? What can I do with them?
    • We're all about making use of what you have and we hate waste! What you can do is mix your foundation colours to see if you can find a match for your skin tone. You can also use the empty jars to make up your own eyeshadow, blusher and bronzer colours from existing colours in the collection. Get creative and have fun with it. The possibilities are endless!
  • • Is Beautiful Me mineral make up organic?
    • Mineral make up cannot be classed as organic as it has not grown. Minerals are what you'd call INORGANIC. Minerals are naturally occurring on our planet and abundant.
  • • Do I need special brushes to apply mineral make up?
    • You'll achieve the best results with brushes specially designed for mineral make up. However, there's no reason why you can't get going with the brushes that you already have in your make up bag. Just experiment till you find a way of applying that works best for you.
  • • How can I use my mineral eye shadow as an eyeliner?
    • It's easy! Simply dip your eyeliner brush into some water and then into the mineral eyeshadow. You may find that the lid of the jar is good to use as a palette. Then use the eyeliner brush to line your eyes.
  • • Can I mix and match my products?
    • Of course! This is where the fun starts. Check out our online tutorial where you'll find lots of ideas.
  • • Is Beautiful Me make up suitable for mature skin?
    • Yes, it is suitable for skin of all ages. Just remember to add your minerals little by little and keep buffing to achieve great coverage. You may find that Dewy Perfection finishing powder used as a base will stop your mineral foundation settling into lines and wrinkles.
  • • My skin is itanned after the summer and my foundation now looks too pale. What can I do?
    • You could switch to a shade darker or try mixing a little of a darker foundation into your usual colour. Use a separate container and add a tiny amount at a time until you find your perfect colour.
  • • My skin is sensitive. Is Beautiful Me mineral make up suitable for me?
    • The best way to find out is by trying it. Mineral make up is generally a lot kinder to skin than many traditional liquid foundations. We would highly recommend that people with all types of skin, sensitive or not try a trial size jar to test the foundation's colour and suitability on your skin. The likelihood of a reaction is very rare but we would recommend that you do a patch test on a small area of skin 24 hours before commencing full coverage.
  • • Will mineral make up effect my oily spot prone skin?
    • Yes, it will actually help! Our mineral foundation contains zinc oxide, a naturally occurring mineral which has anti inflammatory properties. This makes it ideal for unsettled teenage and spot prone skins for all ages. Beautiful Me mineral foundations and concealers won't accentuate spots and blemishes in the way that liquid make up can. You'll feel great knowing that the minerals are helping to treat your blemishes as well as covering them up.
  • • My skin looks chalky. What am I doing wrong?
    • You're probably applying too thick a layer of minerals or you are using a colour that is too pale. We recommend that you apply your minerals little by little to achieve a great result.
  • • My fine lines and open pores look accentuated. What am I doing wrong?
    • It sounds like you're not blending enough. Use a small amount of mineral foundation at a time to gradually build up coverage. Blend thoroughly so that your minerals don't settle into fine lines.
  • • What is bismuth oxychloride and do Beautiful Movements Cosmetics products contain it?
    • Bismuth oxychloride is an ingredient commonly used in make up to give a silky feel to the product. It has been known to cause irritation in some people. Because of this, you won't find bismuth oxychloride in Beautiful Me products.
  • • Does Beautiful Movements Cosmetics make up contain parabens?
    • Absolutely not! Beautiful Me products do not contain parabens, synthetic colours, fragrances, animal products, fillers, petrochemicals or bismuth oxychloride.
  • • I've heard that mineral make up has a natural SPF. Is this true?
    • Mineral foundation does contain an ingredient that acts as a natural sun screen. We would however recommend that you do not rely solely on this and protect your skin with an appropriate sun tan lotion.
  • • How do I apply mineral eye shadow?
    • Mineral eyeshadow is such a versatile product that can be used in many different ways. Apply a light sweep of powder for a subtle daytime look. For a more dramatic effect, load up an eyeshadow brush and press the powder onto your lid for a heavier finish. For an ultra dramatic look, apply the powder wet.
  • • How do I apply mineral concealer?
    • Load up your mineral concealer brush with powder and then tap off the excess. Gradually build up coverage on blemishes and dark shadows until they are no longer visible. Clay Eyeshadow also can also be used as a colour corrector. The yellow pigment will neutralise under eye shadows as well as mild red tones. Great for cancelling out the redness in pesky blemishes.
  • • Do I need to wear a finishing powder?
    • Not if you don't want to! Beautiful Me mineral foundations look great when worn alone. Dewy Perfection finishing powder is great for minimising the appearance of open pores and fine lines and for giving a smooth, flawless finish.
  • • How do I know which shade of foundation to choose?
    • Why not try a sample size jar? At just £1.25 for a 0.75g sample size jar, you'll have enough foundation for a few applications. Make sure that you have good lighting, and apply a little mineral foundation to your jaw line. The one that blends with your skin tone and appears invisible is the one for you.
  • • Can I wear moisturiser under my minerals?
    • Of course! We would advise that you wait for a couple of minutes before applying your minerals to ensure that your moisturiser is fully absorbed and your face doesn't feel sticky.
  • • Will I get the same coverage as my liquid foundation?
    • Most people find that they achieve superior coverage with mineral foundation. The beauty of mineral make up is that you can apply it in a way that suits your skin's own requirements. If you have clear, blemish free skin, all you need is a light coverage and you're good to go. If you need a bit more camouflage, just keep building up the coverage where you need it the most. Just remember to blend, blend, blend.
  • • How do I apply Beautiful Me mineral foundation?
    • It's very easy! Simply shake some powder into the lid of the jar, swirl your brush and tap off the excess powder. Then apply to your face in light, circular motions. Check out our online tutorials for more information.
