The wonders of Mineral Foundation!

Well what can I say but that I am truly sold on the idea of not having chemicals on my skin everyday. Mineral foundation and make up is so pure that you can actually sleep in it! (though this is no excuse to not follow a cleanse & tone routine!)

On my recent trip to a well known health spa I was offered the opportunity to have a “free make-over” using mineral make up and being the sceptic that I am, I thought there is no way the make-up artist will achieve full coverage on my skin…I was wrong it looked wonderful and since I have abandoned my usual liquid foundation in favour of Id Bare Minerals

starter-kit

I have been using Id Bare Minerals eyeshadows and blushers on my brides and they work well with liquid foundations too but over the weekend I used the complete kit on one bride -to-be and the results were WOW…watch the gallery space for images. The starter kit in the picture above is about £45 and includes all you need to get you glowing!!!

Here’s a list of a few on-line and store suppliers. Fenwicks Stores, Selfridges and online at http://www.carolegoddard.co.uk and for a complete range visit http://www.glowgirl.co.uk

By shahnaz

Hello everyone and thank you for visiting the new look website I hope that we have managed to achieve what we set out to with the makeover of the website! I would like to thank Phil Smith from A Million Monkeys who has been a true professional and has managed to work to my brief in re-creating the logo, branding and setting the style for The Make up Girl I am truly thrilled as I didn’t stress one tiny bit (as those who know me know that I can stress unnecessarily) I left all the design work in Phil’s capable hands and I am definitely pleased with the end result!! And as a perfectionist….that is saying something.

Keep an eye on this page as there will be some interesting and inspirational info added over the coming weeks and months!
