bareMinerals Original Foundation

Hello lovelies, I hope you are all well! I was talked into purchasing this foundation recently but, my gosh, am I glad I did! Usually I rarely step away from Clinique in terms of foundation, but I knew mineral foundations are so much more beneficial to the skin so I thought I may as well give this a go.

After using this foundation just once I absolutely fell in love and literally haven't stopped using it since! After a few weeks of experimenting I've learnt that you can apply the tiniest amount to make your skin look even and flawless but like you're wearing no makeup at all, or, it can be built up to cover absolutely anything but still look like you're wearing little or no makeup! It is amazing. When buying this my main worry was that I wouldn't be able to achieve a full enough coverage, but trust me on this one, you definitely can!

I did consider buying the matte version of this foundation as my skin has the tendency to get rather oily throughout the day, however I didn't because I like glowy-looking skin and worried the matte foundation would look too matte or too cakey. With the Original foundation, I get very little excess shine throughout the day and my skin looks healthy, dewy and glowy - so I think I made the right choice there!

I use the Full Flawless Application Face Brush by bareMinerals (pictured above) to apply the foundation, it just buffs the makeup into the skin so perfectly. However, the Real Techniques Buffing Brush also works a treat!

Have you tried any mineral foundations? What are your thoughts? Thank you for reading!! :)
