BareMinerals Matte SPF 15 Foundation!

What Got Me Started

All throughout high school I became more and more into makeup. I would literally do full on beautiful makeup just because I was bored at home.. and most of the time I never even went anywhere to show it off!

I would spend loads of time on my makeup in the morning before school. Not only because I loved doing makeup in general, but because I was SUPER insecure. So when I covered up my insecurities.. I felt accomplished and empowered that I could make myself look pretty. The insecurity I'm talking about would be the god-awful acne!

I'm happy to say that my face isn't that way anymore! I've actually had it tamed for 2 years straight and it's all thanks to Neutrogena's skinID line! I'll do a post about my skin care another time :)
UPDATE: The Neutrogena SkinID is now discontinued :( I started breaking out again and I was super unhappy with it but I've once again got it tamed with the regimine! I strongly recommend visiting their website. They not only sell their own products, but they have an entire community where people do reviews and post about what works for them, too.

The Point of Today! 

What I wanted to talk about today was foundation. 

So here it is!

Now, this picture is one that I JUST took, at the end of my day. I work an 8-hour job and this is the same makeup I put on this morning! 

Of course the flash on the camera makes my face look lighter than it would in person, but this color matches my skin PERFECTLY! 

What I have on is the bareMinerals SPF 15 Matte Foundation in the shade, "medium beige"

I've used the bareMinerals foundation since I was a freshman in high school. It's been a long time! I've tried just about 2 other brands but after about a day I always went back to my lovely bareMinerals! 

I just love how it feels on my face, and the medium to full coverage is so great! You can layer this baby on as much as you want, and it still feels weightless, like there's absolutely nothing on your face! I really like the matte finish because my skin is oily. It's clear, now, but still oily! It's so annoying.

Anyways, if you are looking for a completely natural looking foundation that looks airbrushed, covers well and just looks amazing, definitely go with the bareMinerals foundation! It's won beauty awards and everything of the sort. CLICK HERE and check it out! 
I also use their SPF 20 Concealer in the shade, "summer bisque".

Brushes I Use

I use this brush to apply the foundation. I love it because it's dense and really distributes the product nicely.
Then I use this handy little guy to apply the concealer under my eyes and on any red spots or blemishes.
And finally I use their Mineral Veil finishing powder to really keep the oil at bay! and I apply that with a big fluffy MAC brush. It has old numbering I think because it just says it's number 1.
