Mineral make up has always somewhat confused me – I have super dry skin, and always assumed I couldn’t quite pull it off. I’ve tried a couple of brands in the past and just haven’t fallen in love with any particular product. About a month ago, some of my closets friends came to stay with me – I always think it’s great to get product recommendations from friends who have tried and tested them, and spotted my friend Hannah using this little beauty:
It is the Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Mineral Makeup SPF 15. Not her actual one, of course – I popped out to purchase it for myself a couple of days ago. Hannah has very dry skin, like myself, so I knew that that wouldn’t be an issue with this product. The lovely lady at the Bobbi Brown Selfridges Counter colour matched me to Extra Light (unsurprisingly!) and it is the perfect shade for me.
When I first properly tried it out, I first cleansed and moisturised before letting my moisturiser totally sink in. I then applied my green concealer to my cheeks (which were super red after doing a workout) and my Benefit PoreFessional to my nose, as I’ve noticed that mineral products highlight my pores.
Using my Sedona Lace Kabuki Brush, I swirled the powder in circular motions all over my face and neck. I was instantly thrilled with the results – a little powder went a long way, and the effect wasn’t in any way cakey. I also had no pore-related issues after using the PoreFessional, and the finished look was light, natural and soft.
I posted a quick picture on Instagram after applying the Mineral Makeup, and got so many lovely comments! Thank you all! I still look quite rosy in the photo due to my workout, which gives you an idea of the coverage – it really is very light, but that’s something I love!
I bought the Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Mineral Makeup from Selfridges for £28, and I definitely think it was worth the money. I know that this will be my essential foundation during the summer months – it will feel lightweight and let me skin breathe, which is exactly what I need when it’s warm!
