The foundation that’s sold every three seconds globally

Have you tried it?

Bare Minerals Original Foundation is a mineral base that contains only five ingredients and is officially so pure “you can even sleep in it”.

As busy mums know all too well, there just isn’t time for a full face of makeup and finding a base that results in the ‘no makeup, makeup look’ is essential.

The hero product has 30 shades to choose from, with one to suit pretty much every skin tone.

The popular buy is priced at €29.50 and the benefits include a long wear formula (eight hours), a naturally luminous finish and the fact that the creamy texture helps to disguise fine lines and wrinkles.

I’m often sceptical about beauty products that promise to transform and change your life BUT this one really does what it says on the tin.

I have oily skin and makeup tends to melt off so when hearing about long wear power from a lightweight product, I was intrigued.

I’m happy to report that after an extremely long day, it stayed in place, well more or less anyway.

More importantly, it didn’t cake on my face which is a common problem with foundations and if you’re looking for an everyday base with staying power, this is well worth a go.
