I'm the kind of makeup artist who is also majorly concerned about skin and I truly believe in treating your skin rather than covering it. Makeup should be fun, not a mask. Ya picking up what I'm putting down? If you've followed my makeup looks for the last year, you know I always have fun with my makeup! I love the artistic side of makeup but I believe you'll only love your makeup if you love the skin that is underneath it. Check out my skincare posts ----> Here, here, and here. Just a few of them.
:: ABOVE :: Bare Minerals Original Foundation, Bare Minerals Original Face Primer, and Bare Minerals Flawless Definition Mascara. These aren't skincare items but they are my staples for a flawless and effortless makeup application and look!
1- Bare Minerals Original Foundation: This foundation is anything but a dry powder! Its very creamy and is suitable for ALL skin types. This formula has a luminous texture providing a great full coverage while leaving your skin looking like skin. What a concept! It also helps diminish and soothe redness in the skin.
2- Bare Minerals Prime Time Face Primer: This lightweight silica based product is good for ALL skin types, will NOT clog your pores, and isn't oily even in the slightest. Trust me people, I'm an oily girl and I use this on the reg. It glides smoothly on the skin and leaves your skin with a very smooth finish for your makeup to go on top of. You'll get better blending, coverage, and smoother looking skin. Win, win, win.
3- Bare Minerals Flawless Definition Mascara: Free of oils, parabens, fragrances and tar. What more could you really ask for? This mascara comes in a black and dark espresso brown shade. The rubber bristle is truly the ONLY great rubber bristle out there. It snag's every tiny little lash, builds volume, doesn't clump, doesn't flake, and heck its safe for contact wearers. Go get some already!
I'll be honest. I'm trying to be a good girl and save some dough but after a month and a few weeks of NO shopping, I had to scratch the itch. I snagged these two darling bracelets at Free People yesterday on sale for $10 each! Screaming deal if you ask me. They are so dainty yet daring and I love them.
With my work schedule I try to blog as much as possible but where you'll get more Bloom in Saturation updates is through my Instagram account! You can follow me there and I'll be holding a cosmetic goodies bag giveaway soon and Instagram will be a key factor. I want you to win! More updates on this giveaway coming soon. In the meantime, this is what you missed....
