One more 'No-Makeup' Makeup Look!You've already seen my 'no-makeup' makeup look here which was mostly done with Lakme. Here is one more look mostly done with Mineral Hygenics!!! I recently came to know of this brand. Its a USA based brand and as the name suggests its a mineral makeup brand.
The foundations were the best part. There are 14 shades to choose from. I fell somewhere between Medium and Tan. Each skin tone has 2 foundation colors. I received 3 shades - Fairly Tan, Medium Golden and Medium Tan. They came in cute little plastic jars with sifter cap and black lids. They do claim sun protection but there's no mention of SPF.
Here are the bronzer and finishing powder. I've never used a bronzer before this. The point is, here the sun shines so hard almost throughout the year and I actually have tan and I never felt the use of bronzer, to create a sun-kissed look on my skin. But then, finally I thought, I should give this Mineral Enhancer a try and tried out this in Warm Kiss shade. The Sheer Perfection finishing powder came in 2 varieties - matte and silk and I obviously took up silk!
They also do have a range of brushes. I don't have a kabuki brush and for mineral makeup, kabuki is essential and I loved this brush. It was soft against the skin, yet it was very firm.
Well I haven't tried Mineral makeup so far and the moment I used this, I loved it!!! With so many shades available, its easy to find the one that suits your skin tone. The Medium Golden was perfect for my yellow undertone wheatish skin!!! I applied my Olay Cream and Serum as the base. On top it I applied the Medium Golden Foundation. I loved the way the foundation felt on the skin. It felt like it wasn't on top of skin, it felt like a part of the skin. It felt very light. It didn't clog the pores and preserved the natural texture of my skin. It did not look or feel cakey at all.
Using the bronzer for the first ever time I used it very limited, but I liked it. The finishing powder helped to add a hint of glow to the entire face, finally... It looked good in real and photographed well too. And even without a concealer, the undereye coverage was not bad. The day I tried out this makeup, it was cool but humid here and I sweated a bit. The makeup stayed on well for about 5 hours and then it started to look patchy...The lippies is Lakme Enrich Satin in 129 and that eyeshadow is from Coastal Scents Mirage Palette. Guess what? The Coastal Scents eyeshadow usually creases after a few hours without a proper base. Today I wore it atop Olay and Mineral Hygenics foundation base and even after 5 hours, the eyeshadow did not budge a bit!
