I HEART Bare Minerals! Great for acne prone oily skin!

NOTE: I do not like to wear Bare Minerals foundation all of the time. I am afraid that if I consistently use it my skin will get too used to it. And if my skin gets too used to it, it may not possess the same healing powers!

Bare Minerals Foundation - $25.00
Bare Minerals Mineral Veil - $19.00
Bare Minerals All Over Face Color in Warmth - $20
Bare Minerals Soft Focus Face Brush - $30
*I like this brush better than the Full Flawless Brush; It's very soft (Reminds me of my MUFE Kabuki Brush!)

You can purchase Bare Minerals from Bare Esscentuals stores Sephora and Ulta.
*I suggest going to a store to match your skin properly. But all of the above have websites!

you can buy this whole kit at sephora or for $60.

btw: this is an old video. :T from '07.
i'm hating the quality and what i looked like. lol.
p.s.- can't notice the difference? start from the beginning of the video and fast forward to the end.
& sorry for the typos.

5/10/08: i am now starting to use clinique stay-matte sheer pressed powder. it's oil free, allegery-tested, fragrance free, and is really great on my skin.

8/18/08: if you're sunburned, bareminerals works good. i got sunburned yesterday and had to switch to my sister's bare minerals. :T

10/12/08: Panoxyl & Differin are working so well. I'm currently only using Clinique's Perfectly Real Compact Makeup, lightly.

12/2/08: My face is soo clear now. :] GET DIFFERIN, PEOPLE!

3/6/09: Yay for MAC concealer, Lancome Dual Finish Pressed Powder, and BareMinerals Warmth. :)

7/21/09: The only mineral make-up I use is MAC's Mineralized Skin Finish Natural.
