Christening Makeup Featuring BareMinerals

What I Used To Create This Look

I love makeup but as I get older, and my skin is more balanced and radiant due to a strong skincare routine, I really do not need to wear a lot.  In fact, when I apply too much or makeup is too strong, on the whole, I do not like it, especially during the summer.

The Look

Having picked a very romantic and airy dress, I wanted the hair and makeup to match.    The dress and the hair offered structure and elegance; anything too strong makeup wise would have been my undoing.    When I want a radiant, soft and natural look, I always reach for bareMinerals.  I have introduced you to bareMinerals before and I am sure I will again as my collection keeps on growing; their Bare Pro range gives flawless professional coverage without being heavy and enhances rather that hides.

What I Used To Create This Look

Primer – Becca Backlight Priming Filter. This is a  luminous primer that photo-filters skin imperfections for a smooth, long-lasting makeup application.  This is one of my favourite primers!

Foundation – bareMinerals Bare Pro Performance Wear Liquid Foundation SPF 20 in Warm Natural 12.  This is a medium to full coverage foundation but it feels very light on the skin.  bareMinerals is a makeup range for anyone wanting professional results and kind, clean beauty.  This shade I use (no.12) is for light to medium skin tones with a neutral under tone.

Eye Primer – BECCA Under Eye Brightening Corrector.

Concealer – IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer in Medium (Light Medium).

Powder – bareMinerals Mineral Veil.

Brows – Benefit Precisely, My Brow Pencil in Medium 4.

Eyelid –bareMinerals Barepro Longwear Eyeshadow Stick in Sunset Rose, Gilded Sun and Brilliant Bronze.  They are long wearing eyeshadow sticks which give shimmering eye-enhancing colour with a crease-proof, smudge-proof, fade-proof and water-resistant finish . The clean, vegan formula is made with naturally derived botanicals and 40% water to refresh skin with a burst of hydration, instantly and over time. I love these sticks!

Highlighter – Mally Glowing Goddess Lumizer Illuminateur.

Lip Pencil – bareMinerals Statement Lip Under Over Lip Liner in Kissathon and I applied all over the lip.

Lip Gloss – BareMinerals MOXIE® Plumping Lip Gloss in Charmer and 24 Karat.

Setting Spray – CoverFX Illuminating Setting Spray. A quick drying setting spray that sets makeup for all day wear and imparts instant, all-over illumination.  It’s alcohol free, so it’s not drying to the skin.
