I don’t have to be the one to tell you just how hard it can be to find the right foundation in the right shade that blends in seamlessly and looks completely natural (and not like you’re wearing makeup!) This has been my biggest frustration over the years when it comes to makeup and beauty. It seemed like no matter what I tried, I just couldn’t seem to find the right match, Even with shade match-perfecting apps, trying on product in the store, etc. It seems like as soon as I got the product, tried it out at home, and walked outdoors, you could tell I was wearing makeup that just didn’t quite match my face. I don’t even know what it’s like to apply base that doesn’t need to be blended in at the neck with moisturizer just to get rid of that obvious makeup line around my chin and the bottom of my cheeks. Well that is until now…
I recently got to try out some pretty impressive makeup from Advanced Mineral Makeup. This toxic-free Vegan (Love!) mineral makeup line is not only gluten-free, but also paraben-free, dye-free, talc-free, and fragrance-free too! And it comes with built-in physical sunscreens to protect your skin from the sun!
It truly is great makeup with great ingredients, great for all skin types, AND designed to give you that perfect match I struggle so deeply with!
Created by Brooklyn Native, Annie Mayo with over 25+ years experience in the beauty industry as a TV/Film makeup artist, Annie always believed in the products that she represented, but she always felt there was room for improvement in women’s makeup, so this cosmetics line was created in 2009, to marry great ingredients with great color under-tones that look natural, yet give great coverage too!
I recently got to try out the award winning Advanced Mineral Makeup Perfecting Concealer in Beige Cream and the Award Winning Pressed Powder in Angelina Compact, which functions as a foundation, powder, concealer and SPF all in one – and I was nothing short of impressed! This makeup offers impressive coverage and a perfect match, while also offering so many other fabulous skin benefits! I love makeup that actually helps improve my skin instead of just covering the imperfections!
I start with the Concealer in my makeup routine, and love how smoothly this medium to full coverage concealer hides my dark circles, and seems to minimize the appearance of my crows feet around my eyes as well, by brightening and lighting up my under eye area, making it look so much more youthful, awake, and bright! it does an amazing job of decreasing under eye puffiness too! It doesn’t clog pores and will not settle into fine lines and wrinkles, but instead creates a beautiful luminescence, that reflects light and makes eyes appear more hydrated too!
This lovely concealer contains Grapeseed Oil, Vitamin E, Shea Butter and Hyaluronic Acid, that all work together to moisturize the skin, giving the under eye area that plumper, more youthful, hydrated look. This concealer also works amazingly for covering hyperpigmentation, sun spots, scars, and acne too! I tend to have red undertones that pop up on my cheeks and nose. I love using this concealer to cover those areas before applying foundation, to give my skin a much more flawless, smoother, more perfect complexion!
