Summer has arrived in Sydney with beautiful sunny, hot and some humid days.
The worst thing I can imagine in weather like this is to wear a thick, heavy foundation.
My skin is naturally dry and sensitive in Summer however it becomes reasonably more balanced and can get oily in the t-zone.
On days when I am working from home or I don't usually wear any makeup during this time,
( I just told you about my go-to Summer moisturizer here!) but I love products that look like I am not wearing anything and feel lightweight yet give some coverage and glow for when I go out or work in during this beautiful season.
Hello LIQUID MINERALS! Where have you been all my life?
Not only does this foundation have the most intriguing packaging, it really is different the way it works and looks on the skin. It is a serum gel base, which is a real skincare treatment with amazing anti-aging and hydrating properties in which the mineral pigments are suspended.
When you pump it out the pigments mix with the gel, sometimes they still some out a little separated and need a little further mixing. There are different techniques recommended for application by Jane Iredale, however, I think it applies PERFECTLY when used with fingers.
It just melts into my skin, the hydration sinks right in making my skin super plump and the pigments are just enough to even out my skin and give the most amazing glow.
Each time I wear it I get a ton of compliments on my skin, how it's glowing and so healthy etc.
The best thing is it's not an oily dewiness, which makes it perfect for this time of year. It actually really balances the skin and I don't even get an oily t-zone.
Many people use this together with the pressed or loose foundation for added coverage, which is a nice option. I love it on its own right now. It just perfects my skin. It also does not clog pores or cause any breakouts as it's so lightweight but still perfect for sensitive and dry skins.
It's definitely a luxury product but well worth the price. Think of it as your precious skincare serum, just that you would apply it during the daytime only and as a side effect it is your foundation. Liquid minerals is vegan & cruelty-free.
I hope this helped a few of you looking for something like this right now :)
