Foundations are what a canvas is to a painting. “Why?” you may ask. Well, just the way a painting comes out beautifully when it has a spot-free, fabulous canvas; makeup looks fantastic on the skin well prepped with foundation.
Foundations are usually a little on the heavier side as they are expected to give full coverage. This can be a minus point for people who suffer from acne. This is where mineral foundations come into the picture. Mineral foundations are proven to be milder on the skin as they don’t clog the pores. Thus, there are lesser chances of acne and breakouts.
Here I am listing the top 10 mineral foundations.
All of them are available in their respective outlets and online too.
