bareMinerals Foundation

It can be so hard trying to find a foundation that’s just right for your skin type……….liquid, powder, BB, CC, it can be a minefield.

bareMinerals have a foundation to suit all skin types from oily to dry, from blemished to combination, from light coverage to full coverage. They all contain soil minerals such as iron oxide, zinc oxide and titanium dioxide that are ground and milled into very tiny particles and create the main component of the bareMinerals make up.

Unlike traditional make up brands that use preservatives such as parabens, chemical dyes and fragrances, the mineral make up leaves out these ingredients meaning they have fewer potential irritants and are soothing to the skin.

Here are a few of my recommendations:

All Skin Types- bareMinerals SPF 15 Original Loose Powder Mineral Foundation:

This is an all round foundation that is suitable for everyone.It first came out in 1976 and is still going strong. With an SPF of 15 it is anti-ageing, light weight, doesn’t clog pores and gives a natural dewy luminous finish.

Oily Skin Type -bareMinerals SPF15 Matte Loose Powder Mineral Foundation:

Suitable for more oily skins as it contains Silica which absorbs oil and eliminates shine. It also helps to minimise the appearance of pores, and the creamy minerals diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles without drying out your skin to give a natural Matt finish.

All Skin Types -bareMinerals Ready Pressed Powder Compact with an anti-ageing SPF 20:

If you find the loose powder a little messy then the bareMineral foundations are also available in a Pressed Powder Compact. Giving you all the benefits of the loose powder but with less mess!

Pigmented and Dull skin – Bare Skin Pure Brightening Serum SPF 20:

For those people who prefer a liquid foundation bareMinerals have now created a liquid mineral foundation called Bare Skin. Available in 20 different shades this ultra-thin, skin-perfecting fluid provides seamless adjustable coverage, a natural finish and the look and feel of beautiful skin. Containing Lilac Plant Stem Cells and Vitamin C  it helps to reveal brighter, more even-looking skin tone with a natural Luminous finish.
You con control the amount of coverage just by adjusting the amount of drops you use on the brush; 1-2 for light, 2-3 for medium and 5-6 for full coverage.

Normal/Dry Skin Types – Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream SPF 30:

Another new arrival from bareMinerals is the multi-tasker. Just like a BB,  CC and a tinted moisturiser it gives a natural smooth tint to your face without looking too heavy and giving a natural radiant finish. Super moisturising and anti ageing with an SPF of 30.

Blemish Prone Skin – Blemish Remedy Foundation:

With Tee Tree and Aspin Bark to promote healthy skin, Aloe Vera to soothe, hydrate and calm, and the mineral powders to reduce the appearance of facial redness and the look of pores whilst reducing oil and shine, this is a great all rounder. It gives the skin natural  coverage whilst covering up blemishes to give a healthier looking appearance. It doesn’t contain any SPF but the use of an SPF mineral veil over the top or Heliocare Sun Protection as a base, will give you the adequate sun protection required.
