...bareMinerals I'm talking, don't worry I'm not baring my soul yet again (or anything else for that matter)!

Since my life changed dramatically, it seems so has my skin. I'm not sure if it's all the hormones, stress, lack of sleep or all of the above but my skin has taken a battering. Its been my quest to bring it back to almost normal.I decided to try changing my skin care regime (more of this in another post) and also changing my foundation etc. Years ago (i'm talking at least 10!!) I got some bareMinerals in New York and used it for a while and then moved on to something else. I recently decided to give it another go and now I'm converted.

The powder foundation isn't actual a powder but lots of crushed minerals and after buffing it into my skin (think singing 'happy birthday to you...' all the way through for the buffing time) it leaves me looking all soft focus - well that's the idea anyway. Their motto is 'Swirl, tap, buff' - so you put some of the powder into the lid, then swirl your brush in it and tap off the excess...then buff onto your skin.

I love it because it doesn't feel like a cakey foundation, there are no tidemarks and it also lets my skin breathe. I've just received my latest batch and its called 'Return to Radiance' and I really hope it is for me, it includes the foundation, concealer, brushes, night time cream and a lovely lip gloss.

If you are thinking of a change in foundation, I would recommend this set (or the foundation in the very least). It's revolutionary in its approach so can take a while to get your head around the fact you are brushing on what seems to be a powder (there will be cries of 'how will it provide full coverage, won't it sit in my wrinkles, Oh don't like the idea of that') but I urge you to at least try.
