Dare to go bare with BareMinerals

March 1, 2015

I have turned 31 recently. I know, a deal breaker; I can’t enjoy my dates with my youngest friends without wondering if they gossip about my wrinkles when I’m at the ladies room. Oh gosh, since when do they call it ladies room and I like saying it? It seems I’m beyond hope, so I’m in a constant search for the best makeup products that will reveal my best features as I remember them: plump, healthy and radiant. There are many beauty products in my kit, but with age, I have became much more aware of their ingredients. I have a dry to normal complexion, prone to acne and irritation, so I’ve gone through some battles with well renowned brands, to end up testing much of the beauty products multitude on the market. Some better than others. If you are not familiar with my top 5 products that changed my life, you can start there. I am updating this list a lot, as I find more and more great brands.

The one I am going to talk now is BareMinerals. Rave, more than talk. There are many organic brands out there, but Bareminerals has something I haven’t seen before: youth essence in small bottles, just to put it mildly. Their entire concept is based around minerals and their power to deliver one-of-a-kind beauty benefits. BareMinerals utilizes utilizes naturally derived minerals to give you exceptional long-lasting coverage, breathable lightweight wear, rich pigmentation with creamy blendability, and broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sun protection. I absolutely love a makeup brand that doesn’t only make you look good, but it’s good for your skin too. I’ll take you through some of the BareMinerals products I’ve tried and loved.go bare with BareMineralsFirst on my list is the BareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation SPF 20. I have always searched for the perfect foundation with good coverage, that will last all day, look dewy, and not cake at the end. You can read my list of 10 foundations tried and semi-loved here. Just to resume, I haven’t found the perfect one. Except, the BareMinerals one comes close to perfection. What I love about it is its ultra-thin, skin-perfecting power with a natural finish. It does not cake at all, perhaps because it has a low to medium coverage, but even with my paranoia on looking doll perfect, I find it easily to adjust with the right concealer. Supercharged Lilac Plant Stem Cells and Vitamin C help to reveal brighter, more even-looking skin tone. It’s like nothing you’ve ever felt before, because, actually, you can’t feel it at all on your skin, which is amazing. Due to its serum, you have to shake it really well, and I find it perfect for the cold season, thanks to its rich texture. Together with the Perfecting Face Brush, specially designed for the BareSkin foundation, it will ensure an easy and seamless application.go bare with BareMineralsBefore applying the foundation, I always choose a great primer, especially if I am gone all day. The Prime Time BB Primer-Cream SPF 30 will perfect, protect and prime – at the same time. With a hint of skin-perfecting coverage, this multi-tasking BB primer-cream diminishes the appearance of discolouration, uneven skin tone and imperfections while providing SPF 30 protection and defense against environmental stressors. Plus the silky, smooth formula combats flaky dryness, excess oil and the appearance of pores to perfectly prep skin for a flawless foundation application. In other words, I know what I’ll be wearing this summer on its own!

To make the most of your makeup, the Mineral Veil finishing powder is a see-through but spectacular finale for any kind of complexion. Minimising lines, absorbing oils, and softening your complexion, it gives you a flawless finish that’s too good to miss. And best of all, it’s utterly weightless. Just a bare veil of minerals that lock makeup in place and give your skin airbrushed perfection.go bare with BareMineralsI always like to highlight my cheeks, just to give them that dimension and extra glow I lack most of the times. The Ready Luminizer Duo is an innovative concept in solid mineral technology. Created through a unique cold-pressed method, this formula highlights the complexion with two lustrous complementary shades for soft, candlelit radiance. It is not glittery, it just ads that golden glow that will make you stand out.

What makeup is complete without lipstick? The Marvelous Moxie Lipstick will make your lips look fuller and more voluptuous. An infusion of minerals revitalises lips for a healthy-looking pout, while a moisture-loaded hydrating complex helps to nourish and condition them for supple, baby-soft smoothness. All the while, an encapsulated vitamin A, C and E complex helps to deliver antioxidant defense, so you’re ready for anything – and everything. I absolutely love this lipstick, it is really moisturizing, doesn’t dry out my lips like so many other lipsticks do, and last forever. I’m never without it, that’s for sure.

Go to BareMinerals for your dose of healthy mineral beauty products. It’s time for that smart and healthy makeup!

    Hey Elena, si eu sunt mare fan Bareminerals. Din pacate in Romania nu se gasesc :(. Eu nu am folosit fondul de ten lichid de la ei inca, doar cel classic, pudra. Poti face o comparatie intre ele? Ai folosit cel pudra? Multumesc:).

      Buna Lavi, nu am incercat inca fondul de ten pudra, dar cel lichid este super, mai ales pentru un ten mixt spre uscat. Pudra cum este?
