The best mineral makeup is the gift that keeps on giving. Unlike traditional makeup products, the best mineral makeup lines are free of preservatives and chemicals — like parabens, dyes and fragrances — that can wreak havoc on sensitive skin. They can be a lifesaver for women with skin conditions like eczema or rosacea who don't want to give up makeup. And, because most formulas don't contain oil, they also won't exacerbate acne-prone skin.

As for skin-care benefits, mineral makeup contains titanium oxide and zinc oxide, which provide some sun protection. Zinc oxide is also a natural anti-inflammatory, which helps soothe irritated skin.

From powders to liquids, these mineral makeup products were voted most impressive (and least irritating) by TotalBeauty.com users. Check out their reviews to find the best mineral makeup you need to add to your beauty regimen.
