Foundation That Gives You a Natural Look

bare_mineralsx

Let’s just get this out there .. Having to do the same ol’ concealer, foundation, powder routine gets old. Sometimes you’d just like to have your face done in 5 minutes and actually feel like youΒ look somewhat put together. Well, with Bare Minerals foundation you can.

Bare Minerals is a loose mineral powder that covers imperfections whilst also creating an even layer on your skin. Because it’s made up of minerals, it doesn’t have a drying effect on the skin.

My current shade isΒ “Golden Fair” from the Bare Minerals matte foundation line. Its description is: “for the fairest of porcelain skin with yellow-olive tones”.

CONS OF USING BARE MINERALS

None that I’ve found yet

I really like this foundation because it’s very simple to use and you don’t have to use a lot. You simply put a little bit in the lid, swirl a brush into it, tap away the excess, and buff it into your skin. It only takes a minute or so and you don’t have to really deal with using concealer or anything else because it’s basically an all-in-one product. Not only that, but it lasts a long time. You don’t have to worry about having to redo your makeup in an hour.

The price tag is $28 for a .21 oz. jar — which sounds a little steep, but with as much as you need to use daily, this lasts so long.

Β Definitely a must-try! πŸ™‚ You can find more at Bareescentuals.com

    this foundation looks great on you, it doesn{t cover your freckles which I think are a beautiful feature.

      Haha yep! I think if I build it more it would somewhat but I don’t mind showing my freckles as long as my scarring is covered.

    Ok. I’m sold. Definitely on my To-Buy list this weekend. Do you think you could blog about the proper way of applying it? Mineral foundations always leave my skin looking powdery and white-ish. But looking at your flawless face, I’m sure I’m applying it wrong!

    • prettyloved March 5, 2015

      πŸ˜€ Thank you so much. I’m glad to know it’s doing its job! πŸ™‚ It’s actually super simple to apply, you just have to tap some into the cap and swirl the brush into it and then buff it into the skin. I do circular motions all over. You may have to put some skin cream on before hand if it’s not sticking very well. If you don’t feel that the mineral foundation works well for you, you can use their new liquid foundation! πŸ™‚ My sister was telling me about it. I actually want to try it.

    • prettyloved March 5, 2015

      Yes! Definitely and I think it’s sort of buildable if you want it to be. You can see my freckles but everything else is covered up like my scars and things.

      Thank you so much. When I first tried this, it just didn’t work for me but then trying it again it was great. They have a liquid foundation that I’m super curious to try because I think it has the same effect. πŸ™‚ You could try that too
