I think it's about time for another review of one of my favey foundations at the moment.

This time it's Bare Minerals Foundation in medium beige, which I purchased as part of the Bare Minerals Medium Get Started Kit back in March.



It is designed for anyone new to Bare Minerals and retails at £45.00. The idea with these products is that you can "Swirl, Tap and Buff" your way to the skin you were born with i.e. beautiful radiant skin.

The kit contains:-
•2 X Foundation Shades
•Mineral Veil or Tinted Mineral Veil
•Warmth
•Full Flawless Face Brush
•Flawless Application Face Brush
•Maximum Coverage Concealer Brush or Light Stroke Brush
•Bisque Multi-Tasking Concealer
•Get Started DVD

I also got a sample of the Bare Vitamins primer I have previously reviewed here .

Before I purchased this kit I had a consultation with one of the MUA's who showed me how to apply their products. This is the routine I now follow:-

Firstly I apply a layer of the foundation, then bisque multi tasking concealer under eyes and over any other imperfections (e.g. corners of nose), then another layer of foundation, then mineral veil followed by warmth followed by dusting of mineral veil.
I swirl tap and buff and they suggest which is super easy and quick and here is the result...


The coverage can be sheer, but is also buildable. Its evens out my skin tone and I find it perfect for summer, as it is of course lighter on the skin than any liquid foundation.

This is my most used foundation by far. I use it during the day and on nights out following the routine.

I love it so much is because it looks like my skin.

All my holiday pic's from NYC look like I don't have foundation on but still have good skin. I knew it was good when people said that I looked really "healthy and fresh" on my pictures because I was shattered due to the jet lag!

For me, that's what a foundation should do. I mean don't get me wrong I like a fuller coverage but this foundation introduced me to the power of letting my skin shine through.

Just so you can see what it looks in more natural settings here are a couple of random (not the best!) pics of me out and about wearing the above products...







Clear, radiant, natural looking skin. Mineral makeup, for me, is the way forward.

Oh and the Mineral Veil should be in every woman's beauty collection no matter what - I wear it over EVERY foundation I ever use or try as it provides an amazingly luminous finish.

Anyone else a bare minerals fan??

  3. so impressed with how this looks - have just tried my first mineral powder foundation (arbonne - wee fotd on my blog) and was so impressed with the coverage - I never thought powder could do that. how long do you think the products in your starter kit would last you?
