Remember my quest for the perfect face cream for my sensitive skin, from skin rescuer to recovery salve (and more)? Alas nothing did the trick for me.
I do prefer to solve (skin) issues via healthy choices and good skincare products before covering it up with make-up. It was a very long time since I enjoyed a lot of make-up. Now I most always feel that, when it comes to a lot of things in life, less is more - but not when it comes to cats, books, carrots or colours of course - and that certainly applies to make-up.
But after a friend kept telling me I really should try mineral powders (specifically bareMinerals original foundation/powder) to both cover the redness and soothe the skin I finally succumbed to the idea and popped by the big department store to see if it was something for me.
I have to say that the difference was dramatic when the make-up cashier applied the product on my cheeks. Obviously a no brainer to get a jar.
I got a synthetic brush and it works great. The primer sample I haven't tried yet. But the original powder foundation me and my face are really happy about after one week's use. Easy to apply and looks natural not at all make-upey. Ie it gets a whole lotta thumbs up.
