I’ve always been a frequenter of liquid foundation. We’ve been through it all together; my late teens when I caked it on too much, and later when I wore shades that were a tad too dark for me. But now we’ve finally come out on top. I can (for the most part) match my colour in minutes, and apply it with ease. I’ve learned that less is more with liquid foundation. We’re happy together. But I think I’ve found something a little better.
Sometimes I crave something that feels like absolutely nothing, but can still offer me great coverage. Here enters the bareMinerals Original Foundation. It used five pure ingredients and buffs on like nothing I have ever used before. I am crazy in love with stuff. I want to sing my love for it from the rooftops. Instead, I’ll just blog about it.
With this foundation, you really just have to buff it and forget it. It is also so much easier to apply than traditional liquid foundations. Within seconds I have even coverage without ever having splotchy patches on my face. I used a Sonia Kashuk blush brush to buff it in, but I’ve found that the Real Techniques Buffing brush does a great job as well. Any dense brush will get the job done. Pictured below, I’ve just applied a bit of concealer on my face and buffed in the foundation. My shade is Golden Dark for reference.
Can I also say that I really appreciate the packaging? The twisting top locks into a closed position, making it impossible to have handbag disasters. This is a major bonus for me because makeup always seems to find a way to ruin my favourite bags. Not this time.
Does it offer flawless coverage by itself? No, but that’s not what I wanted from it. I have full coverage liquid foundation for that. With both an original and matte formula, and boasting a 20 colour shade range, they’ve got you covered. Mineral foundation is best suited for those who want an even base that looks completely natural. Or for those prefer a little extra sleep in the morning (every minute counts). I fall into both categories and thoroughly enjoy every second of using this.
