Bare Minerals’ latest Hydrating Ready SPF20 Foundation,s$55, is so light you’ll be amazed how it keeps skin hydrated with its light coverage that minimises uneven skin imperfections of pigmented skin.

Why it is good for you

1. Superior coverage – featherlight feel and diminishing appearance of fine line and wrinkles

2. Increases skin hydration for 12 hours by 108 per cent and nourishes skin with  Sea Nutritive Mineral Complex

3. Does not contain preservatives, parabens, artificial oils, synthetic fragrance or talc

How to apply

1. Ensure moisturiser and primer are both completely absorbed before applying foundation.
2. For ideal finish, it is imperative to use recommended foundation shade. So get shade matched at the store as different types of Bare Minerals foundation may have a different shade recommendation due to the properties of the various foundations.
3. Next, every foundation has its own application techniques to ensure the desired finish. Hence watch the enclosed video links for a clearer picture of the application techniques.
4. Brushes to match the types of foundation coverage desired:
Medium Coverage: Flawless Application Brush
Full Coverage: Precision Face Brush

5. To pick up foundation from compact: Just tap brush on compact. There’s no need to swirl the brush once over the compact.

Application for Full Coverage:

1. With Bare Minerals Precision Foundation Brush, S$45

How to pick up foundation from compact:

Tap brush on compact once and buff on face in long gentle strokes. There’s no need to swirl brush over the compact powder to avoid picking up too much in one application, which would result in having too much foundation on your face and hence a stiff look.

After application: Use brush to continue buffing for the air brush finish (do not  pick up any more foundation from the compact).

Here’s how you can contour cheeks.
