Season change also brings a change to my beauty rituals. As the weather has gotten a lot colder, my skin has been acting out and showing me that it’s time to ditch mattifying products and start using moisturizing ones.
People who have followed me for a while might remember a blog post where I was reviewing different products by Sampure Minerals (HERE). Their mineral powder foundation (HERE) is still one of my holy grail products! But it works for my skin only during Spring-Summer.
Therefore I’m SO happy they finally came out with a Mineral Liquid Foundation (HERE) which means I’m all set for Fall-Winter! Perfect timing!
I’ve been using it for 5 weeks now and to be honest I’ve had mixed feelings about it. At first I hated it. I thought it was one of the worst foundations I had ever tried. It didn’t blend at all leaving me with patchy and uneven skin. I actually thought about calling it off, this whole collaboration.
But finally I figured out what I was doing wrong – I was applying too much product! Once I realized that, my opinion changed completely. This foundation actually works so well and has such a beautiful & natural finish! Light coverage but easy to build up. It doesn’t clog the pores and when wearing it for 14 hours in a row, you don’t feel like “omg, I can’t wait to wash off my makeup.” Also I think it works very well with Instant Glow Mineral setting powder (HERE) as it makes the skin even smoother!
Here are some tips to get a good base:
✔️ Start with well moisturized skin. This is without saying the most important step!
✔️ Remember to shake the product.
✔️ Use a flat top kabuki brush or something similar. Beauty blenders/sponges don’t work because it’s an oil based foundation & sponges are all about water. Oil and water don’t mix as you know.
✔️ Don’t apply too much! Trust me on this! 😁
✔️ Use Sampure Minerals setting powder. It sets the foundation and gives you a beautiful & natural finish!
