It's safe to say I'm fairly obsessed with the whole natural face look at the moment. I would love to be able to wake up, moisturise and just apply a coat of mascara and lip balm and be out of the door. Old acne scarring and my lack of self confidence because of that makes that fairly impossible for me. Maybe it's shallow, but I have to have a least a light dusting of mineral foundation before I can leave the house. So I have to be not so natural in achieving that natural look I crave.
Lily Lolo mineral foundation has been my go-to foundation for a year or so now. I didn't believe that a powder could give me the coverage I needed until I saw some video's on YouTube and photos on blogs. I got myself some samples and my love for minerals started there. I firmly believe that it really helped my skin as well.
I cheated on Lily Lolo a few times with other mineral companies. I tried Bare Minerals and reacted horribly to it. The same thing happened with the Eyes Lips Face mineral line. I don't think my skin likes bismuth at all. So back to Lily Lolo I went, and luckily she took me back!
I find mineral concealer to be a bit rubbish on covering my rosacea, under eye circles & acne scarring. To be fair I do have a lot to conceal, so I reach for my Benefit Boi-ing and erase paste every day without fail. The fair shade in both of those matches me perfectly so I guess I'm lucky that I'm one of the 3 shades that they do.
After some major concealing and a light dusting of lily lolo I find I've created that fresh faced look I love. With a dusting of a peachy toned blush on my cheeks, a few coats of mascara to open up my eyes & a bit of lip balm I'm good to go.
Do you ladies like the natural look or do you prefer something a little bit more?
