Bare Minerals Matte Foundation: Light

Hey everyone,

I love discovering new foundations and the one I’m using at the moment is one of my all-time favourites. Bare Minerals is a brand that I’m sure a lot of us are aware of especially for their famous Mineral Foundation. I’ve heard so many amazing reviews about this but for some reason I never bought it.
Available on QVC {£22}
I finally purchased it about a month ago but in the Matte version. This one is recommended for oily skin (like me) because the original tends to give a more ‘glowy’ effect.  The foundation gives an even coverage and blends in really into the skin. I used this foundation in my latest Youtube Video (Everyday Make Up Routine) and I used a Kabuki brush to blend it in which tends to give a more even coverage but I prefer that a lot.

I find this to be a lot better than liquid foundation as I find that my skin is looking a lot healthier and I’m not getting as many breakouts as I was before (this might not be the reason however). I would say that a liquid foundation provides a little bit more coverage than the mineral foundation as I find it doesn't conceal my breakouts. However this is the perfect foundation for a natural coverage or if your someone that doesn't like wearing lots of make up. 

I went for the light version which is for a light skin tone with warm undertones but I like to go for a shade which is about a shade darker than my natural skin tone as I'm quite pale. The good thing about this foundation is that it doesn't leave you with an orange colour and doesn't leave foundation lines as it's easier to blend in. 

I bought this on QVC for £22 but on the Highstreet it retails at £25. 

This will be one that I'll be buying again in the future. 

Have you tried any of the Bare Minerals range?
