For me, January has always been a detox month - whether its switching up my diet, skincare, wardrobe and/ or make up. After a fun-filled and hectic Christmas, I love nothing more than quiet evenings spent de-cluttering and re-organising. This new year, I began with my everyday make up staples, it was time to throw out those dried out mascaras, ditch the heavy foundations (which have been doing nothing for my dry winter skin), and thoroughly cleanse my brushes of their glittery party dazzle.
Let me introduce Bare Minerals Original Foundation in 'Fairly Light'; a mineral powder designed to give flawless coverage with a bare skin feel. Its fine texture makes it extremely buildable (sheer to full coverage), without feeling cakey. It's creamy formula means it keeps skin hydrated, whilst portraying a powder finish. The high quality ingredients ensure it won't irritate sensitive skin, and provides an SPF 15 to protect the face (and neck) from harmful weather conditions.
Simply swirl a small amount of product in the lid with a large fluffy brush (I personally love the Real Techniques Blush Brush), tap off any excess, and buff into the skin using circular motions, working your way from the outside of your face, inwards. Continue to apply the product until you are satisfied with the finish!
Mineral foundations are usually my go-to products during the warm summer months. However, seen as I have been big on my skincare the past few weeks, I decided I would be ruining all my hard work if I was to layer a heavy base, so decided to opt for something a lot lighter.
Do you have any 'Beauty Detox January' rituals?
