shop front of bare minerals store buchanan galleries

I went along to the Bare Minerals store in Glasgow’s Buchanan Galleries to learn all about their new Bare Skin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation and get my make up done.

The store is amazing, and stocks everything from the Bare Minerals brand. The staff are really knowledgeable and will help you choose what make-up shades suit you best.

During my consultation, I fell in love with the Bare Skin foundation immediately (their first liquid foundation) as it gave great coverage while still being so light-weight. The brush has been designed especially for it, and has a small well in the centre. You add a drop of foundation to the well (a little goes a long way) before buffing onto your skin. You start with one layer; but can add more until you reach your desired coverage level. I liked two applications on my face.

There are so many shades to choose from, so there is literally one to suit every skin tone. If you aren’t sure which one is best for you, pop into the store to get colour-matched. My shade is the lightest- 01.

Bare Skin also has SPF 20 for protection and Vitamin C for brightening. It also  contains none of the ingredients found in regular foundations, such as oil, silicone, water or parabens; but instead has the bare minimum of ingredients added to a coconut-derived base.

My overall make-up look had a purple berry colour theme to it; which is perfect for Autumn. On my eyelids, I just have the BB 5 In 1 Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow in shade Elegant Taupe, finished with Lasting Line Eyeliner in Endless Orchid and their Lash Domination mascara. It’s such a pretty, but simple to achieve, look.

My lipstick is from the Marvelous Moxie range and is called Lead This Way, and they are topped with the iridescent Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in Hypnotist.

I also love the blusher I have on. It’s one of their loose powder blushes, and is in the shade Kiss- a soft and subtle rose shade.
