Where to begin, Bella Terra Mineral Cosmetics is a moving target, every time you mention an ingredient, an issue regarding skin care safety, they have been there, done that, and have the T Shirt to prove it.
Meeting with Helen Deian Marketing Manager recently at Cosmoprof, she was with a totally energetic team, first point to know about the line is that Bella Terra products are made with finely-ground, mica-based mineral powders that do not contain any impurities, abrasive preservatives, dyes or harmful chemicals.
Then, you are using a line that allows you to take control of not just the appearance of your skin but also the health of your skin. The all natural mineral makeup will not block the pores therefore allowing your skin to breathe making it ideal for even the most dry and sensitive skin or skin prone to rosacea or acne.
Made from 100% pure and natural mica, zinc and magnesium, mica is a fine, translucent powder that retains its properties longer than most pigments, allowing for a longer shelf-life. No alcohol, talc, oil, additives, fillers or dyes, no preservatives, hypoallergenic, anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties, natural UVA and UVB sun protection (SPF 15) entirely animal-free and therefore cruelty-free.
A star product recommended by Helen is the Bella Terra “Makeup Primer”, which will temporarily fill in fine lines and other imperfections, creating a smooth and even canvas for the skin, this gel-like texture of the Primer forms a bond with other cosmetics, helping them to adhere to the skin to remain fresh and color-true for hours.
When I saw the “SHIMMER 9-STACKS “ these are just so flexible, I could not believe the options you have from this 9 gems of color, each shimmer can be used in 8 different ways.
Creamy Shadow moisten the brush to create a more intense color
Matte Shadow mix the shimmer with Bella Terra eye primer for a matte shadow look
Eyeliner wet the tip of an eyeliner brush and applies around the lash line for high intensity eye definition
Lip Color mix any of the shimmers with lip balm or lip gloss to create intense lip color
Nail Polish add to clear nail polish to give a unique nail color that matches your eye shadow
Body Glitter mix with body lotion to create an all over body shimmer
Mascara dip clear color mascara primer brush into the shimmer for amazing lash colors
Hair Streaks mix a small amount of shimmer with hair gel and apply to a strand of hair for funky streaked look that easily washes off later.
So what are you waiting for get your brushes busy creating your own look, that takes care of your skin “Bella!”
