Do you wear makeup? Well since most of my followers are female I assume they either do regularly or may just wear it occasionally. I do not wear makeup on a regular basis but as I am getting old (40+) I am finding that I definitely want to wear it more frequently – even if just to even out my skin tone. I want a very natural look – but preferably younger and smoother.
Plus at the moment I spend a huge amount of time outside and as my face gets exposure to the sun which means greater discrepancies in the color and tone of my skin.
All of you are aware that I absolutely prefer to use natural products over other options whenever possible. When I was given the opportunity to try out Mineral Hygienics I was thrilled to give it a try. They are recognized worldwide for having the best mineral cosmetics.
Mineral Hygienics are made of loose powders composed of crushed minerals taken from the earth with no fillers and they are the most natural cosmetic line! They do not contain any harmful chemical additives, harsh dyes, or fragrances. They are perfect for sensitive skin – which I absolutely do have. They are free of irritants such as talc, bismuth oxychloride, dyes, parabens, mineral oil, salicylates, carmine, synthetic fragrances, methylparaben, petro-chemicals and so many other skin irritants.
The coverage lasts all day without the consequence of clogged pores etc…
I used the Medium Foundation first. I also received Light but since I have seen a bit of sun – Medium was my choice. Once I finished with the Medium Foundation I applied Silk Translucent Sheer Perfection. I am not kidding you when I tell you it took a total of three minutes to take a before photo outside – run back in the house – apply the foundation and Sheer Perfection powders – then run back outside and take an after shot. I did also apply a quick dab of lip gloss.
I do not have time to apply makeup each morning. But if it only takes three minutes – I can absolutely fit that in! And the fact that it is all natural makes it even more of a possibility.
As a blogger I have had to put my face in the spotlight a couple times and I have NEVER been comfortable with it. But don’t you think we should all do what we can to face our fears? So knowing that this is definitely one of my fears – I am doing it anyway. Below is my before and after shot – straight out of the shower. Feel free to take the time to tell me how brave I am!!!! Fortunately I have some of the best followers out there who are not judgmental – I love you all for that. FYI I used one of their Kabuki brushes to apply the powder.
I know – I can barely keep my eyes open. Between the sun and still not quite awake… But see how my nose and just below my eyes got a little too much sun? It has all been smoothed right out.
I also love their website with Tips and Tricks, FAQs, how to apply makeup etc… I will definitely be buying more of their products. I could tell you about some of my horror stories with makeup from retail establishments. I had no problem at all with these products.
And just for readers of The Stuff of Success – here is a 10% off code for use on their website. (Thank you mineral hygienics) – code is: stuffofsuccess.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
