Thoughts on Bare Minerals Bare Skin Foundation


 

BareMinerals came out with a new foundation formula this year called Bare Skin. Its is a brightening serum foundation that leaves your skin with a smooth natural finish.

Bare Skin comes in 20 shades and I would strongly suggest your get a few testers before purchasing because the shade on the outside of the bottle is lighter than what is inside. I was first given the shade Bare Natural 07 which is way to dark for me, I went back in and was them matched to Bare Linen 03. That is a huge difference in shades. So definitely test it out and don’t purchase before you do.

The formula needs to be shaken before you use it as it separates easily. A little bit goes along way for this foundation and the coverage is amazing. It can be sheer or full depending on what you prefer.  As for the finish, if you put too much on you can feel it on your skin for awhile but it does dry in and you don’t feel it anymore.

I got the brush that is meant for this foundation and I wouldn’t recommend it, it left my face streaky so skip that. I apply mine with the Real Techniques Blending Sponge (like the beauty blender). Gives its a smooth finish and it really pushes it into the skin.

Bare Skin is £26/€31

What are you thoughts on this foundation? I think it gives amazing coverage and a flawless finish just make sure you pick the right shade.

Bare Minerals Touch Up Veil

Bare Minerals Touch Up Veil is a soft focus mineral powder that blurs out any lines and gives a flawless finish.

What it does?

  • minimises pores and fine lines for a smooth look
  • Absorbs oil without drying out the skin
  • Prolongs wear of foundation

My thoughts;

This powder is for girls who don’t like wearing powder. Its doesn’t have that cake-y finish most powder have. It does prolong the wear of your foundation and it does keep your oils at bay!

I use Touch Up Veil as the last step in my foundation routine to give my make up a nice flawless look.

There are four shades to choose from; original, translucent, light and medium. I got the shade translucent as it will work whether I am pale or tanned.

Price

£22/€26

You can find it on Bare Minerals  or on Brown Thomas
