FLAWLESS & FULL COVERAGE | BareMinerals Foundation Routine + Tips

Hello Everyone,
Today’s video is showing how I get my flawless full coverage *Updated* foundation routine using mainly BareMinerals Makeup for 90% of the “full face”. I've been having multiple skin issues like skin texture and acne coming back! which made me think, Oh No there BACK! Hihi.
So I've resulted to using BareMinerals to get my skin covered up instead of my NARS Sheer Glow or Hourglass Foundations. And to be honest I'm loving this look, it's way more natural looking and doesn't feel caky or heavy on the skin, these minerals are gems!

PRODUCTS MENTIONED: The Body Shop Tea Tree BB Cream (in shade 01) BareMinerals Original & Matte Powder Foundation Both in the shade - Fair (TIP: Great shade match if your MAC NW15 OR NC15) BareMinerals Prime Time Primer BareMinerals Concealer in Well Rested  BareMinerals Mineral Veil (Setting Powder) MAC Cosmetics Mineralize Concealer in NC20 MAC Cosmetics Prep+Prime Brighten…

HOT OR NOT?: MAKEUP GEEK REVIEW | Eyeshadow, Liner, Pigment & Blush

Hello Everyone,   Today’s video is a Hot OR Not?! featuring only Makeup Geek Makeup.  I’ve been using this makeup for over the last 2 months fairly regularly. The eyeshadows have been getting a beating, as I’ve been using them a lot. This goes for the pigments too for my nighttime \ going out looks.  And the blushes I’ve reached for 8\10 times to really get the full idea whether they were any good or not. + the Eyeliners I used multiple times in different ways to find out if they where multi-purpose.  
So all in all these Makeup Geek Items have been through a lot for this Hot OR Not so I can give you my honest opinion. Enjoy Xx WATCH HERE:
