An Oldie, but a Goodie: bareMinerals Original Foundation


BareMinerals foundation received a lot of hype initially.  Mineral makeup seemed to be the golden standard for a while, but enthusiasm died down.

I still stand by my bareMinerals Original Foundation.  After trying several other powders to set my liquid foundation, none gave me the coverage or the finish I was looking for.

While it is meant to be used on its own, I prefer this loose, powder foundation to layer over my liquid foundation.  Since I have less that perfect skin, the combination of liquid foundation and bareMinerals covers everything flawlessly.  The powder sets your makeup and gives a slight glow to the skin without ever making you shiny or oily. 

An added bonus is the SPF 15 that is built in to the product.  I have fair skin and won’t leave the house without some sort of SPF on my face.  However, a word of warning: if you use this foundation or any other makeup product with SPF in it, it will reflect light and wash you out tremendously in flash photography.
