Bare Minerals Makeup

hmmm ... Ah- makeup! The Truth. When I was young, I never fully "got into" makeup (or fashion but that's another post). Meaning, I never regularly wore makeup unless it was a formal occasion. Nor did I have a preferred brand of makeup. There were several reasons for this. I had very bad acne from about 16 to 22, and makeup, I thought, made it worse. I also never had the money to invest in good products and then I started having kids and thought "why bother!"

That was fine in my 20s. But now, at 30, and being completely honest, I can't get away with any sort of "youthful glow" because it AINT there! I decided sometime in September 2011 to invest in a product range, but I was overcome with a wealth of problems. First, I did not have a clue how to properly apply the stuff and I got tired of rocking the "whiter face than neck" look. Every time a salesperson would try something on me and asked what I thought, I would say "that's nice" - I did not have a clue.

I tried traditional brands and found them too heavy, especially for day to day use and my skin was definately breaking out as a result. I then tried several mineral makeup brands and thought they all provided too little coverage. I threw my hands in the air and gave up in November.

In December & while in California I sat down and met with a representative of Bare Minerals and have been sold ever since. I actually don't know how I coped before it came into my life. I love how you can change the coverage and the flawless look. It feels like I am not wearing anything. I wear it everyday. It takes minutes to put on and it actually feels like I am doing something very good for my skin.

Check out my before and after - I am sure you will be able to tell the difference.

So -
