Before the invention of mineral makeup, the only way to get essential minerals to the face was to peel it off and soak it in a reduction of pennies and fish oil each night. Nourish your face the easy, attractive way with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $35 worth of mineral makeup online from e.l.f. Cosmetics.
Fashion magazines regularly applaud e.l.f. for its no-nonsense approach to creating choice cosmetics for beautiful, budget-minded fashionistas. The mineral collection eschews parabens, preservatives, and chemical dyes in favor of natural, mineral-based ingredients that blend in easily with the skin's natural tones. Light-as-a- feather mineral foundations come packed with SPF 15 to shield the face and its feelings from the sun's harsh gaze and its even harsher laser pointer, and are available in a quintet of shades, ranging from fair to deep ($5+). Lip gloss ($3) and eye shadow ($3+) contain vital vitamins known to hydrate and minimize fine lines, and bronzers ($8) can help achieve one's preferred pigment hue.
Those who want it all can pick up the mineral starter kit, which includes foundation, concealer, blush, and two brushes, all wrapped up in a canvas case ($20), and e.l.f. also boasts a number of attractive mineral-makeup gift sets, perfect for every mom, friend, makeup artist, or hard-to-shop-for vaudevillian in your life. Shipping costs can be found on e.l.f.'s website.
