"It's all about the base"

Foundation is the base of all makeup and is used to smooth your skin tone and hide the impurities in the skin. A good mineral foundation is well-covering and non-additive to allow your skin to breathe. Talk and similar filler products can clog your pores so you get problems with unclean skin in the long run. Mineral makeup is easy soothing and therefore can be used on all skin types as it does not dry out your skin. It also gives some protection against the sun, but it depends entirely on how much product is used.
