    Bare Minerals

    Advertisements
    Has anyone ever tried this? Or any other mineral makeup brands that do look good with olive-toned skin?

    Right now I'm using Maybelline Mineral Power foundation, and while I do like the feel, it always looks just a smidge too red.

    Bare minerals is all I can wear. Great coverage and never makes my skin look dry(my biggest problem). It always covers evenly too and lasts me about three months.

    I started using it almost 7 years ago and haven't felt the need to use any make-up since. I absolutely love it. It's pricey but it lasts a long time. I think it's totally worth it.

    I tried it, loved it...and then it started making my skin worse. Not really in a breakout kinda way, but I followed everything like I was supposed it and it wouldn't cover anymore. I bought new powder and brushes thinking that was the problem, but it wasn't. You could visible see it on my face -- no amount of blending would help.

    I hate the way bare minerals looks on my skin, it covers nothing and just looks really powdery and dry. You'll probably like it if you liked drugstore mineral foundation though.

    I've used it for years and wouldn't use anything else. My face is smooth and soft even after I take it off
    Vmigirl & missmay are my wifies!



    DH is out of the Marines and now I'm joining the military!
    Excited to see what the next few years hold for us

    If you ever need another suggestion for mineral makeup, try Avons. It's what I use & I have olive skin. Bare Minerals is overpriced IMO.
