The 10 Best Mineral Makeup Brands You've Never Heard Of

BB, CC...we're as excited as anyone about the latest innovations in skin care, but we couldn't help but wonder: What happened to mineral makeup? We fondly remember our favorite silky powders, a.k.a. the original skincare-as-makeup hybrids, made up of pure, natural pigments that actually nourished our skin while covering seamlessly. Determined to bring back these oldies-but-goodies, we rounded up ten indie brands that you — and your skin —will love.
Buildable, hypoallergenic, and water resistant, they're so pure that you can sleep in them, without risking clogged pores or breakouts. Plus, the natural minerals are anti-bacterial and will improve the texture of your skin over time. No offense to BB, but we think these natural wonders are beauty forces to be reckoned with.
