One of my favourite beauty brands has to be BareMinerals, particularly for their range of foundations which look natural on the skin but also provides great coverage.
I usually use their pressed powder in Medium Beige before using their mineral veil to finish the look. I have had my eye on the “Bronze Splendor” gift pack for a while now and finally gave in.
I tend to purchase my BareMinerals products from one of my favourite websites, www.feelunique.com. This is brilliant as the brand is discounted and provides free delivery. They also send you free samples when you spend over a certain amount, hence the Cartier perfume sample in the photo below. Not a bad website overall!
I usually buy Mineral Veil, but since being away on holiday I needed a darker shade to match my skin tone. This is Tinted Mineral Veil which, with a touch of bronzer, provides a flawless but tanned look.
This is the Ready foundation in Medium Beige which has a slightly yellow undertone to it. It comes without a sponge, unlike Mineral Veil as it looks best when applied using a large all over face brush, blended in circular motions. It comes as a loose powder and a pressed powder which are both lovely to use but the pressed powder is great to keep in your handbag.
The Bronze Splendor beauty gift pack contains a compact with bronzer and highlighter, a brush to apply it and a lip balm. The bronzer looks a very deep colour in the compact, so only a small amount is required. The highlighter on the right has a subtle shimmer to it which makes it fantastic for glowing cheek bones and brow bones. This is a fantastic palette for creating a slightly contoured face look.
As with all BareMinerals brushes, the Tapered Fan Brush is extremely soft and feels great against even the most sensitive of skins.
The lip balm, Jack of all Trades, looks like a deep browny pink shade but when applied leaves a very understated colour. It provides a natural look and leaves your lips feeling extremely soft and hydrated.
I would definitely recommend this gift pack as it is not an expensive buy but does not falter on quality.
