NEW IN: Bare Minerals Bare Skin Serum Foundation

Bare Minerals Bare Skin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation

If you’re a Bare Minerals fan (and even if you’re not), you can’t fail to have heard all the excitement about the new, first ever, liquid foundation from the brand. Think of all the things you’ve wished for from a foundation; it’s all here in the Bare Minerals Bare Skin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation (available here).

I was lucky enough to be asked, along with four other lifestyle bloggers,* to trial the foundation and have a chat about it on camera, along with a fabulous makeover using Bare Minerals makeup by the incredibly gorgeous Ioannis, so I thought I’d post both the videos here for you.

I’m already a huge fan of Bare Minerals, and have been for over 8 years now, so the idea of one of my favourite minerals brands introducing a liquid foundation was almost more than I could bear – I’ll admit, my expectations were beyond high. Ioannis was the perfect makeup artist to bring my tired face to life with a selection of Bare Mineral products, from primer to eyeshadow, radiances to lip glosses, he literally mixed and matched to perfection. The one thing he didn’t have to mix was the new foundation – with an impressive 20 shades to choose from, there were two that looked great, and one that was the perfect match to my skin tone. Two drops was all it took to give me a medium coverage that completely evened out my skin, gave me a radiant glow, but still didn’t look like I was wearing makeup.

And did you check out the brush? It’s like nothing I’ve ever seen before! A flat-ended buffing brush, but with a little well in the in middle to hold and perfectly distribute the foundation – genius!

It’s the holy grail, isn’t it? Perfect looking skin without looking made-up? People complimenting you on your skin, not your makeup? This is it, my lovelies! Two drops give a sheer to light coverage, four drops for medium and six drops for full coverage. Completely customisable and buildable without looking cakey, we even used this with a smaller brush under my eyes instead of concealer – always love a multi-tasker!

As a little thank you for the day, we were gifted with the products that were used to create our indivudiual looks, so check back soon to see if I managed to recreate the genius that is Ioannis!


PS – I’m a perfect match for the shade Bare Honey, but all 20 shades are available here

    Ambarina this is a great post – I totally agree with you on all the points!! It was such a great day and I still can’t believe none of us had anything negative to say about Bare Skin. It was so great to meet you and the other girls… happy memories and a great product too!
