Everyday Minerals Base

IMG_3132

As I mentioned in my last favorites video, there’s a new foundation love in my life. It’s the semi-matte base from Everyday Minerals. I honestly always thought I would use my Jane Iredale. I’d just never found anything that really compared to it. Most other mineral foundation that I’ve tried has that weird, chunky/gritty thing going on. Not really what you want to put on your face every morning. I like my mineral foundation to give me airbrushed natural coverage.
This does exactly that. It’s a super fine textured formula that goes on so smoothly. I find that the EDM foundation also has a similar wear time to the JI one.  I get about 8 hours of really good wear out of the foundation and it doesn’t fade into patchy nonsense. I think one of my favorite things about Everyday Minerals is their color selection. The options go on for ages. It took me two rounds of ordering samples before I settled on what I think is the perfect shade. Samples by the way can be ordered for a whole whopping 1 cent, and you get 7 of them! Crazy. Anyways,  I settled on Golden Fair – an awesome name as that’s usually how I describe my complexion. So far I’m pretty hooked. Great color, great texture and fantastic coverage. What more could you want?!

Have you tried any other products from Everyday Minerals?

Au Naturale First Impressions

So recently I got some samples of foundation, bronzer and blush from Au Naturale to try out.
I thought a little video first impressions would be nice.
I tried the foundation in Sand, bronzer in Kissed* and blush in Pomegranate.
I really like the color match for the foundation. It’s a little warmer than my natural skin tone but blends well with the bit of sun I’ve gotten.
The bronzer I love and have been using pretty much everyday since I filmed this. It’s a smooth formula that can be built up to your liking.
The blush is very pretty as well and super pigmented. I’m still trying to work out exactly how much to use on my brush. One false move and it looks like I’m going to an 80’s party.

All in all I really liked what I tried.

Incase you were wondering I did start this video with my brows, eye makeup and concealer already done.
