i think it depends on the ingredients added to the minerals. some might clog your pores.

Many mineral foundations include bismuth oxychloride as one of it's ingredients. In some people it causes skin irritation and break outs.
See if your foundation contains bismuth oxychloride. If so, it is very likely to be the culprit.
The good news is that many brands of mineral make up don't use it anymore. Just make sure to read the list of ingredients on the package.
