Meet Matte: Bare Minerals Matte Foundation

I did a review of Bare Escentuals Bare Minerals Matte foundation not long ago. Recently, I came across this video that Bare Escentuals must have created when they first introduced their matte foundation. It’s so funny that I had to share it with everyone. I didn’t know they had such a sense of humor. It looks like a fun place to work. Take a look if you need a laugh.

You can read my Bare Minerals Matte Foundation review if you want to learn more about this product. It’s great as makeup for oily, sensitive skin with acne.

P.S. This foundation has no bismuth oxychloride, in case that is an issue for those of you with very sensitive skin.

You are getting ready to head out the door to school, work, a party, dinner, shopping – you name it. Naturally, you want to look your best and feel good about yourself.  When you have acne, you are often more self-conscious about your looks than other people.  However, you can achieve a natural look with the right application techniques and tools.  Use acne makeup or any good makeup for acne prone skin, such as some of the ones recommended in our product reviews or store.  Just make sure you have thoroughly cleansed and moisturized your skin first, using your preferred acne skin care regimen, before applying your makeup.

Treatment for Mature Skin With Acne

Oil of Olay Total Effects Skin Smoothing Serum

Tinted Moisturizer by Stila

Stila Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer

I love Stila makeup and this tinted moisturizer I received as part of a kit. It provides just a little color for my pale skin without making it break out. It is best for combination or dry skin. If you are oily, stick with the Laura Mercier oil-free one.

Tinted Moisturizer by Laura Mercier

When my skin in relatively clear or I want to wear something light, especially in the summer, I use a tinted moisturizer with a little concealer.  Here is one I can recommend highly.
