Despite a market saturated with mineral makeup lines, makeup artist Sonia Kashuk is entering the category this fall with a Sheer Magic Mineral Face Palette.
Similar to last year's Solid Fragrance Palette, Kashuk's goal was to create something simple for consumers to use.
"I wanted to come up with something that took the guesswork out of applying makeup and that was light and sheer on the skin," said Kashuk. "With so many women hearing about minerals, I wanted a product that was easy for women to apply."
Launching in Target next month, the mineral face palette trio set will include a concealer, powder blush and powder foundation. Retailing for $14.99, the stackable and portable set will be available in light porcelain, medium beige and warm tawny. The Sheer Magic Mineral Face Palette is designed to match the skin tone so customers don't have to worry about having each individual product match.
"I coordinated the shades to make them work closely together to help any confusion, so consumers can feel at ease, knowing it all matches together," said Kashuk.
Kashuk believes the mineral makeup category will only continue to grow.
"Everyone sees mineral makeup as something that's not going away and is only getting bigger, since everyone is paying attention to being as healthy as possible," said Kashuk. "I wanted to keep creating as healthy a product as possible."
In addition to entering the mineral makeup category, Kashuk has partnered with Target and The Breast Cancer Research Foundation to launch a limited edition collection of cosmetic bags. All proceeds from the three sets — a pink brush set, a purse-size pouch and a duffle — will be donated to the foundation.
"After I went through breast cancer last year, I immediately wanted to become more active," said Kashuk. "I feel blessed that I've been given a voice that can help educate women on looking and feeling better."

“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.

“Azzedine has been one of the biggest influences in my life. He has always been such a strong, loving, fatherly figure to me. I call him Papa. His designs are indescribably unique, they are pieces of art. He knew how to make the female form look its loveliest. I have so many memories of him; my favorite might be during my first show with him in Paris. He liked me and he wanted to help me get more work. He called all his friends at Kenzo and Comme des Garcons, and asked them to book me. They said, ‘But she can’t walk!’ And he said, ‘but she has such a great ass!' His friendship and support has been the great privilege of my career. I can't imagine life without him. Repose en paix mon Papa.” - @stephanieseymour tells @wwd. #wwdfashion (📷: @steveeichner) #alaia #azzedinealaia

He designed Seymour’s dress for her 1995 wedding to Peter Brant, and treated Campbell (who famously called him Papa), like a daughter. For more on the legendary designer, tap the link in bio. #wwdfashion #alaia #azzedinealaia
