I’ve decided to try a new brand of foundation because my current one seems to rebel against my combination skin. With soooo many choices on the market, how do you make the right decision? A hefty price tag, I’ve discovered, doesn’t always equal a perfect complexion. So do we follow celebrity endorsed products, believing we, too, can look like Kate Moss in an instant? Rely on a sales assistant’s advice, or a friend’s recommendation?
Well thankfully having a demonstration done in a department store by a trained assistant can help to narrow down the options. It’s so important to know your skin type, to prepare your skin accordingly prior to applying the foundation and to monitor how the product settles on your skin throughout the day. Always welcome expert advice.
I’ve been quite interested in all the hype about mineral foundation lately. I must admit I was skeptical, as I couldn’t see how a fine powder could give me the coverage I was after. I’ve tried a couple of mineral foundations and I’ve finally found the right one… girls, you must try I.D Mineral foundation by Bare Escentuals! It works wonders for my combination skin, as it controls the oily patches and keeps the dry areas moisturized, giving a very natural-looking result. It’s so simple to use and you can build-up the product on your skin until you are happy with the coverage. There is even a slight sheen to the powder which is flattering and acts as a highlighter.
A couple of my friends have actually said to me that my makeup looks nice and fresh (I wonder how I looked before!). Why not order a ‘Get Started’ trial pack and let me know what you think?
