Angel Minerals Vegan Make-Up: Colour Consultation and Mineral Make-Up
Karin Hunkel’s Angel Minerals vegan make-up brings out the natural beauty of every person. But what does holistic psychological colour consulting have to do with it?
If you take a look at the colourful range of Karin’s products, you can already guess. However, this connection becomes clearly perceptible during application. The individual beauty of each person suddenly begins to shine. For the dedicated team of the natural cosmetics brand, the pursuit of individual beauty is inseparably linked to the natural beauty of our entire planet. At Angel Minerals, mindfulness, sustainability and naturalness are writ large and lived out authentically.
At the beginning, it was not the intention of colour consultant Karin Hunkel to develop her own natural cosmetics brand.
Colours, Chakras, Energies and Holistic Mineral Make-Up
Angel Minerals vegan make-up: the effect of colours and our energy centres
Since 1986, Karin’s work has revolved around holistic colour consulting. An art enthusiast and studied psychologist, she became interested in the multiple effects of colours on people at an early age. She studied the special psychology of colours and their interaction with our chakras. According to classical Ayurvedic teachings, each colour has its own energy that resonates with our energy centres.
It didn’t take long for Karin to develop her own holistic concept of colour counselling. She began to support people by helping them find the optimal colour tones for them. Her holistic way of colour consulting was so well received that Karin started training colour consultants. In the meantime, she has published three books on the effect of colours.
In the course of colour consulting, the question of optimally compatible and vegan make-up came up. It should allow the skin to breathe, be natural and harmonise with the subtle energies of the colours. Her search led her to mineral make-up, which is vegan by nature. However, in order to apply mineral make-up perfectly, very fine brushes are needed. These special brushes are usually made from the tails of squirrels and offered together with the corresponding make-up. The idea of animal sacrifice for human beauty was unbearable for Karin. She decided to make her own mineral make-up for herself and her colour consultants, and to offer vegan brushes. Her customers were so enthusiastic about the new mineral make-up that the demand for it virtually exploded.
The foundation of her own brand was the logical consequence of this success. And so, Angel Minerals vegan make-up was founded in 2011.
Angel Minerals vegan make-up developed so rapidly that Karin has been able to dedicate herself exclusively to the further development of her special mineral foundations since 2016. She has handed over the colour consulting to her colleague Elke Diemar.
Natural Cosmetics Mineral Make-up
Angel Minerals vegan Make-up is Beauty and Skin Care in One
Mineral make-up is based on mineral ingredients and colours. The finely ground minerals melt into the skin. With the carefully coordinated colour blends from Angel Minerals, enchanting shades are created that harmonise with an individual’s skin tone.
A great advantage of Angel Minerals make-up, especially for very sensitive and troubled skin, is its very good skin compatibility. Many of the minerals contained in the make-up, such as boron nitride or silicon, are known for their balancing effect on our skin. In addition, the Mineral Foundation does not dry out the skin. Natural beauty and skin care simply belong together at Angel Minerals. Some customers even use the Mineral Foundation overnight, if necessary, in order to benefit from the special care effect of Angel Minerals vegan make-up.
The mineral-based foundations do not require any other additives or carriers, such as a cream, lotion or fluid base. Preservatives are therefore superfluous. On the contrary: mineral make-up lasts indefinitely.
Angel Minerals mineral-based liquid products, such as the mascara and lipsticks, do not contain palm oil. Aluminium is never used, neither in the products nor in the packaging. All raw materials are sustainably sourced, produced without child labour or animal suffering. The packaging is also designed and produced as sustainably as possible. Karin is constantly on the lookout for the latest sustainable solutions.
No mineral foundation without the perfect brush
The perfect application of mineral foundation requires the use of special brushes. This sounds complicated at first, but the technique is worthwhile and easy to learn. Karin offers online workshops on application and, together with her team, always gives useful tips in the tutorials on her website and in the social media.
Angel Minerals offers a special vegan brush, the Kabuki. Kabuki brushes are optimised to pick up the mineral make-up completely and release it again in a targeted manner. To apply the foundation, a knife tip of powder is placed in a small bowl. The Kabuki is then moved around in the bowl until the foundation is completely absorbed by the brush. Then it is gently applied to the skin in circular motions. A beautiful ritual that gives an amazing result.
Mineral make-up - a question of quality
For Karin, it was clear from the beginning that her mineral make-up had to be vegan. That’s why Angel Minerals products carry the Vegan Society logo. At Angel Minerals, ‘vegan’ stands for vegan right down to the last detail. Consequently, the brushes also must meet the strict requirements of the Vegan Society – right down to the glue that holds the fine brush hairs together.
At the same time, Karin focuses on natural cosmetics qualification. All Angel Minerals products are certified natural cosmetics. In the following interview, Karin Hunkel, the founder and managing director of Angel Minerals, tells us what she thinks about natural cosmetics certification.
Interview with Karin Hunkel on the Natural Cosmetics Certification of Angel Minerals
What motivated you to have your products certified as natural or organic cosmetics?
Because I myself always pay attention to certificates for natural and organic cosmetic products. Therefore, it was logical to me from the beginning. However, it was very difficult for me to find the “right” seal.
What values do you place certification?
The natural cosmetics certification stands for honesty, transparency, good raw materials and high responsibility of the raw material suppliers.
Since when have you been certified by whom?
Since the beginning (2011) with ICADA and Vegan Society.
Have your expectations been fulfilled?
No, unfortunately not. ICADA is still too little known. Unfortunately, only my retail customers are interested in certificates. The online customers don’t care. They mainly react to horror stories about, for example, titanium dioxide, parabens, heavy metals, etc… Everything else doesn’t interest them.
What do you wish for the future?
More information about ingredients and a stronger accompanying presence in the “social media”, as well as a representative, modern website of the natural cosmetics standards that inspires confidence in consumers.

Angel Minerals foundations give the complexion a natural tone and make it appear more even. Choose from neutral, yellow and rose shades.

The classic Mineral Foundations provide a good foundation, the intensity of which can be influenced by the application.

The delicate skin of the lips loves the protection and care of natural waxes and plant oils. That’s why Angel Minerals offers lipsticks and practical Mini-Lips in little jars.
The Clever Innovation: Grey Off® Minerals And How Grey Hair Roots Disappear Quickly
Beautifying grey and white hair with plant colours is fun and cares for the hair and scalp. But recolouring roots remains a challenging task or has to wait until the next visit to the hairdresser. How nice would it be to have a quick solution for special occasions or stressful times? Angel Minerals has the answer: the GREY OFF Minerals!
Distracting roots and thinning hair can be “powdered away”, naturally and effectively, between hairdresser visits with GREY OFF. The frequency of the necessary recolouring of the roots can also be easily reduced with this ground-breaking innovation from Angel Minerals.
The mineral pigments blend in perfectly, adhere well and are easy to comb out again. As certified natural cosmetics, they do not irritate the scalp or hair.
