bareMinerals BARESKIN Pure Brightening Serum Foundation

If you’ve never quite got your head round mineral make-up (Sarah has, Jo hasn’t), this is the bareMinerals base for you. bareMinerals’s genius make-up pro S-J Froom used BARESKIN Pure Brightening Serum Foundation on Jo for a recent QVC Beauty Bible show – and you can see how glam she looked here!

‘I was worried I’d be too “glow-y”’, says Jo. ‘Not a bit of it: the finish is healthy, without being shiny. It had a really brightening effect – which I definitely needed on a Friday night after a l-o-n-g week!’

The texture is completely different to anything you’ll have tried before – a truly weightless fluid, with a (non-pore-blocking) coconut oil base in which jojoba-coated mineral pigments are suspended. What’s more, not only will it brilliantly disguise age spots/sun spots; there’s an active ingredient which resulted in 95% of women who used the foundation reporting an actual improvement in pigmentation after eight weeks of use.

Really, it’s best applied with the special Perfecting Face Brush that bareMinerals has created, for the most seamless application. But with 20 shades to choose from (from alabaster pale Bare Porcelain 01 to beautiful dark tones including Bare Espresso 19 and Bare Mocha 20 – yay!), there’s something for every skintone.

The coverage is really adjustable: two drops gives sheer coverage, four drops medium, and if you like a more concealing finish, just use six drops.

If you don’t like the feel of foundation on your skin, we think this could change everything. But hand on heart, every woman - foundation-phobe or foundation-lover - should try this mess-free mineral make-up, we’re being so bold as to suggest…
