Mineral Make Up 101 Lynnette Cole of Pür Minerals walks us through the wonders of mineral makeup.

Former Ms. America Lynnette Cole knows a thing or two about the importance of using makeup that lasts you through out the day. Now a spokesperson for makeup line, Pür Minerals, she came to Manila to educate local beauty junkies about why mineral makeup is the way to go and how best to apply it.

Free of talc, chemical dyes, petroleum-based oils and fillers, the Pür Minerals line exists to provide customers with a natural based make up line that delivers a breathable and believable finish. Lynette herself swears that it only takes her eight minutes every morning to get ready. She explained that concept of the line is to give women easy alternatives to creating the same looks that you can get with other brands' products—but in half the time.

The Pür Minerals system is founded on a three step procedure—dip, draw and dust. Dipping is done by emersing the brush into the foundation compact to gather the pigment. Drawing is done to remove excess product from the brush by swirling the tool to make sure that you don't over powder your face. Lastly, dusting is the motion of actually applying the foundation onto the face in light, gentle strokes.

To see just how fast and easy mineral make up application can be, watch Lynnette Cole apply a basic face using Pur Minerals Start Now Essentials Kit here.
