How we started…

Our story starts with mineral makeup (and a missed Valentine’s Day dinner)

Modern Mud mineral makeup began almost two decades ago, when our founder, Kylie Wheatley went in search of a solution to her sensitive skin.

‘I couldn’t wear foundation because my skin got itchy and my eyes puffed up. I tried everything, but nothing worked.
I just wanted to cover up my red, blotchy skin. I felt awful.’

The turning point came just before Kylie’s sister’s wedding day.
‘We had a lovely day of pampering, including the makeup trial,
and I was all dressed up and going out for a Valentine’s Day Dinner with my husband.’

But that’s not what happened.

‘We were in the car when my face puffed up. My eyelids swelled, my eyes itched, and I could barely see.
I couldn’t go to the dinner looking and feeling like that.
So I had to miss out on dinner altogether. That was when I had enough. Things had to change.’

Kylie had heard of mineral makeup, so she checked out a range of products. Some worked, but most didn’t.
Many ingredient lists contained fillers and binders, taking Kylie right back to  those blotchy, swollen-eyed days.

In the end, she knew there was only one answer.

‘I had to make my own mineral makeup. That way, I could control the ingredients and test them on the most sensitive skin I knew – my own.’

It took several years for Kylie to formulate perfect recipes. Friends loved the products so much that she began to make small batches for them.
Many requests later and a natural skincare range was born.

That’s how Modern Mud came about and that’s how we still operate –
making small batches of high quality mineral makeup and skincare,for customers who become friends.

Our new owner, Kylie Levande, has been on the Modern Mud journey since the very beginning. You can read more about her here.

Mum loves the skin saver salve. I used some on a spot she had & it cleared up in no time.
She was amazed
as it wouldn’t
heal before.
