I'm a huge makeup person. I own more than any one person should own. Sometimes I do make up for people, so that's my justification. I may have only had 3 makeup jobs this year… Shhhhh don't tell The Captain. When I cleansed my life of toxins and whatnot, my makeup drawers remained untouched. I'm still working to find natural brands that I like… It's a slow process, but I saw a post on bareSkin foundation via Refinery29 before it was out in stores and how it was formulated with out oil, silicone, fragrance, and parabens, I was determined to try it. When my local exchange had the whole rainbow of colors and only 1 of the patent pending magic brush left, I decided it was time for a new foundation. I was matched easily and loved the sheer application and buildable coverage.  I decided to jump in and buy the brush even though I was skeptical. Well let me say, since purchasing I've fallen even more in love with both the foundation and the brush. You need a shockingly small amount of foundation to cover your entire face. After you shake the foundation you place 1-3 drops of foundation in the well of the brush and then buff it into the skin. I don't find that I need more than that, but if I'm going out-out I might do another 2 drops over trouble spots or any extra preggo redness. I've applied it with a Real Techniques foundation brush which blends it well, but doesn't quite spread the foundation like the bareSkin brush. I really don't like fingers to apply this foundation, I think you loose the ability to spread it well. It soaks into your fingers and I think you end up needing more product.

Bottom line: LOVE IT. This stuff is pretty marvelous. It goes on light and easy, with a nice sheer coverage that can easily be built up to a medium coverage. It gives your skin a lovely airbrushed look and softens the look of blemishes and fine lines. Go buy it already!!!!
