Fresh Faces Mineral Makeup

My beauty bag has been begging me for a makeover, so when Fresh Faces contacted me if I'd like to try some of their mineral makeup products I've jumped on the opportunity. Make up that's good for my skin? Sign me up! I've spent hours on their site trying to decide which products I'd like to try and in the end I decided to put some products in the mix which I have never heard of (primer, anyone?) as well. This is the little package that has landed on my doorstep:


I was in desperate need of some new brushes so I went with a brush for everything... ;) (Delux Buffer Foundation Brush, Chisel Blush Brush, Concealer Brush, Small Chisel Fluff Eyeshadow Brush) They say that your makeup is only as good as your brushes and if that's true, I must have the best makeup ever. Applying foundation on my skin felt like caressing my face with feathers.

Getting back to my new Primed for Perfection primer... it's a translucent gel which improves the look and feel of your skin. People, seriously, you must try this stuff! I have never had softer, matter skin in my life, it feels so good to put it on, plus I'm pretty sure that my wrinkles were finer after usage as well. (No! No! Scrap that! Of course I don't have any wrinkles.. hahaha)
Can you believe that I never had powder foundation in my life? Or a concealer?


The bronzer I've been using has been in my make up bag since.... hhhhmmm... high school? An update was very timely! I chose First Kiss and Apricot Shimmer. (the shades appear to be a bit darker on the website than they really are)

Last but not least I wanted  a dark, sparkly eyeshadow like their Midnight Sparkle, but couldn't decide from the other colors so ended up ordering several samples to try. On the pictures I'm wearing Stone Khakis with Midnight sparkle.

Overall I was very satisfied with the products I've tried. It's true what they say, they let my skin breath and I don't even feel that I'm wearing makeup and my skin is 100% smoother than without. My favorite product from the range was definitely the Primed for Perfection primer which I know I'll be purchasing as soon as I run out! Check out the Fresh Faces webshop and let me know if you end up trying something! Happy shopping! ;)

Awesome and fresh make up. I usually don't use a face primer, I used too, but now I just stick with moisturizer and eye primer.
