The leaves are turning, the air is getting colder and scarves are being brought out of the closet… that means it’s time for my favorite season ever! Fall is upon us! I probably go more against the norm when I say that I love the cold! I could honestly be happy with two months of summer weather and the rest of the year be Fall and Winter weather. My husband also agrees with me, another reason why we are meant for each other!
Fall also means time to bring out the warmer and deeper colors in my make up routine! I love autumn colors when it comes to make up; mauves, browns, nudes and rich colors are essentials for any fall outfit.
I am super excited to feature the BareSkin Breakthrough 8 Piece Collection from Bare Minerals on here today.
I ordered this kit from QVC after waiting for it to be on extra sale from the original sale price which is what it is listed for now. Even the price it is now is still worth it! You are pretty much paying for the foundation and brush, which together retails at about the price of the whole kit, and you get the other goodies too!
This is a great set to try out for a starter make up kit, or even if you are just looking for a new foundation to try. I love that it includes a whole face routine which makes it easy to travel with.
*Update 4/23/18: This kit is no longer available on QVC, but the products are all listed at the end of this post that can be viewed separately 🙂
This is my first ever video post so I am just a
little lot nervous but thank you for bearing with me!
Let’s get into the tutorial of how to use these:
Highlights from the video:
- The BareSkin Foundation is great because it looks very natural and you don’t need a lot but also has build-able coverage. This foundation is a must for my dry skin –> the serum-like formula helps moisturize my dry areas. I ordered this in my “winter shade” which is Bare Shell, and during the summer I wear Bare Natural.
- Again, I will say that the Perfecting Face Brush that was created specifically for this foundation. It really does apply it better than my fingers or any other face brush I have tried! It creates a little “well” to put the foundation in and spreads it beautifully.
- I ended up really enjoying the BareSkin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer. I don’t usually use concealer when applying make up, but I did notice how this really brightened my complexion and under eyes and will continue to use!
- The Urban Decay Eye Shadow Primer Potion, or any primer makes all the difference in the world!
Side note… If someone tells you you need to spend $20 on eye shadow for it to look like great quality, it’s a lie! You can use any eye shadow you already have from any store; the primer is what makes the difference for it to stay ALL day and show up more vibrant. Invest on a good eye primer and save yourself some money down the road! Okay, rant over.
This routine takes me on average about 10 minutes or less as you saw in the video. I’m all about getting ready quick in the mornings, anybody else? Also, don’t feel like you can’t achieve your fall look if you don’t have this kit. Work with what you do have; these are only recommendations of some products I really like!
I hope this has helped bring out your fall style and inspiration! Like I mentioned in the video, YOU are beautiful and God created you exactly the way you are. Make up isn’t something that should define our beauty or worth, but should only be there to enhance the gorgeousness that is you 😉
