Bare Escentuals: My Foundation Routine

Hello beauties!! I am so glad to be here today sharing another video with you all! Thank you so much for your wonderful response on my holiday makeup 2011: classic smoky eye tutorial!! I am so glad you all liked it and that some of you are going to even try it for your next holiday event which is fabulous!!

Today I am going to be sharing with you my new foundation routine for the moment of course (I can't stick to one foundation for too long, lol). For the past month I have been wearing the Bare Escentuals/ Bare Minerals foundation. You are probably thinking, what? Bare Minerals??? Yes, I decided to get back on the Bare Minerals band wagon since my skin is so tired of wearing liquid and cream foundations for the moment. Lately I just wanted to give my skin a break and wear something that is light weight and powder like and Bare Minerals was the one for right now. I am using the original formula foundation that goes on like a powder, but has a dewy finish like liquid foundation. If you have oily skin they now make a Matte formula too!

A while back and I mean a while back I tired bare minerals and I was always matched with either Tan or Dark and neither color matched my skin. One was too red and the other was must too dark for my yellow/olive skin. So since they now have this new shade Golden Tan I can now have a close match. I still have to manipulate the finish a little bit around the forehand and contours of my face with bronzer to get the perfect finish since my forehead is a little darker than the rest of my face. The bronzer I use for that is either NARS casino or MAC bronzer in Bronze.

I have notice that after wearing the bare minerals my skin is clearing from the breakouts I was experiencing from wearing liquid foundations and not sticking to my night time cleansing routine too. (Working late makes a lazy Tasha, lol) Anyway, in the video below I will be sharing with you what I use with the bare Minerals in order to create my flawless face routine. Do any of you use the Bare Minerals? If so, what do you like about it or not like about it? Let me know by leaving your comment below. Until then enjoy the video!!

Happy Holidays,

Tasha 🙂
