When I was in my teens and early 20s, I wore makeup. Raise your hand if you remember blue eyeliner lol. Then I kind of grew bored with it and didn't wear any for years.
Over the last few years, I am noticing more and more lines and wrinkles and redness from rosacea. I prefer powders vs. liquid makeup but I felt like it was messy and time consuming. I also have dry skin so wearing powders seem to accentuate the dryness. I decided to try Bare Minerals again. I used it before but it was expired. I went into their local store and they made up my face and showed me exactly how to apply it and what products would address my issues.
Well the day after I visited the store, I tried the new techniques and was actually told by one gal at work that I looked "radiant" and another said "how beautiful my face looked" Who knew that a little makeup could brighten me up and make me feel less self-conscience about my eternally red face.
It isn't cheap but I feel good about the company, the product and the contents of their makeup
Next time I visit them I want to learn how to do a smoky eye!
