Love: Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Mineral Makeup SPF 15


“This makeup actually looks like skin – it’s mineral makeup reinvented.” – Bobbi Brown

Bobbi Brown is famous for her belief that foundation should look like skin – and that’s why she has created various formulas that achieve a natural finish no matter what your skin type or skin tone. Her foundations are legendary in beauty circles for their incredible finish, and so it’s no surprise that her first foray into mineral makeup - Skin Foundation Mineral Makeup SPF 15 – is an absolute winner. Highly anticipated and long awaited, it uses an innovative blend of mineral powders to provide a unique translucency, while counteracting dullness – a factor that has often been exacerbated by mineral formulas in the past. Think shine-free coverage that glows, and you have a fair idea of how clever this little gem really is.
The formula consists of an exclusive vitamin and mineral blend that is triple coated with vitamins, moisturizers and conditioners, and film formers. It is then triple milled into fine particles that create a smooth, silky finish that absorbs excess oil on the surface of the skin but gives you a totally natural, healthy finish. It contains Sodium Hyaluronate, a powerful moisture magnet that keeps skin’s moisture balanced and prevents caking, whilst a unique complex that bonds Vitamins C and E together provides prolonged activity and a slow release of broad spectrum antioxidant protection. Phew, smart stuff!
The right tools are essential when getting mineral makup right, and Bobbi is renowned for her superb brush collection. The ideal pick to go with Skin Foundation Mineral Makeup SPF 15 is a kabuki-style Face Brush, which is one of the best I’ve tried. For light to medium coverage, apply with the Face Brush in a circular motion that allows the powder to be buffed and seamlessly blended into the skin. For medium to full coverage, use a powder puff as it picks up a greater amount of the product and allows it to be worked into the skin. Start by pressing the product into the skin with a powder puff and then blend it in by sweeping over it with a face brush.
Skin Foundation Mineral Makeup SPF 15 is available in nine skin-tone correct shades:
Alabaster, Extra Light, Light, Light to Medium, Medium, Medium to Dark, Dark, Deep, Rich
