no cod, which make?

mineral make-up is ace. Have you got the base powder?

p.s. we've all got hairy faces - some are just more furry than others! Shouldn't matter though if you blend it right

According to an upmarket makeup artist I met yesterday (bundle can work out who I am and where I met this person -- I'm in hiding for no good reason) mineral makeup is made out of...
crushed pearls
Honestly. What a load.

MyEye Wed 04-Jul-07 16:58:33

How can it kind of be made out of crushed pearls?

It is, or it isn't, surely?

bundle Wed 04-Jul-07 16:59:35

I think some of them have some crushed pearl in

most of them are based on mica and zinc oxide etc
ie rock

I love the way people talk about mineral makeup: 'ooh, it's sits on top of your epidermis so you can sleep in it'
As if we don't all sleep in our makeup anyway
Huge black blotches on my pillow, at any rate

I'm a bit backwards when it comes to sciencey bits. Any pearls in there?
