It’s summertime!! For me that means dresses, grilled food, flowers, and most importantly a lightweight foundation. In the summer, I want a foundation that will not be heavy on my skin but evens out my skin tone. My go to is from bareMinerals. I first tried this combo last year and have went back to it again this year.
The Prime Time BB Primer Cream is great! It can be used with a powder foundation or on its own. It has a somewhat thick consistency, but goes on smooth and easily without being heavy. I just apply a thin layer using my fingers. I also put it on my eyelids for my eye shadow primer as well!
On top of this, I use the bareMinerals READY SPF 20 powder foundation. This gives me a little more coverage without being too heavy. I use the “heavenly face” brush to apply, which works perfectly. With this flat brush, I just press the powder onto my skin.
This duo wears well all day. I am horrible at reapplying powder throughout the day….to be honest, I don’t!
The total cost of this foundation makeup is $54.50, which is on the high side. The BB primer cream retails for $26.00, while the READY foundation powder is $29.50. However, for me these products are worth the price for several reasons; it gives me the lightweight feel and look I am going for in the summer, it lasts well throughout the day without reapplying, and product itself lasts well too so that I don’t have to repurchase often. The brush retails for $30.00 online. I purchased mine last year from a local salon that was running a special if you traded in an old bareMinerals brush. I can’t remember exactly how much I paid with the discount, but it washes well and should last a long time.
If you have a favorite summertime foundation I would love to know what it is.
