Now, read on about why this company is my favorite.
This post is not only about a product I love but, one that is my all-time favorite. My foundation of choice: Southern Magnolia Minerals.
My first introduction to mineral makeup was watching a home shopping television show. I found out that Ulta carried this product, so I made a special journey there to purchase a kit.
Fast forward about 4 months later; I was sold on how minerals worked on my skin. I liked that it didn’t feel heavy and truly felt like I wasn’t wearing any foundation at all. And, I really was looking for a better price, too. So I went where the competition is heavier: Ebay. I found two different businesses that made their own mineral makeup. I got samples from both and immediately fell in love with Southern Magnolia Minerals. The powder was so easy to apply and it buffed on evenly.
Here are the foundations I use. Since my skin tone changes throughout the year, I do use various shades. Also, the container in the lower right-hand corner is my own. I buy my foundations in bulk and I keep them in these jars rather than in the baggies they come in.
Barb Hoffman, owner of Southern Magnolia Minerals, worked with me in determining what shade I should wear. I purchased a sampling that she suggested and from there I found my love!!
Because my skin is dry, yet will get shiny within an hour, SMM foundation will nix that all day. I always were a day time moisturizer before applying my mineral foundation. For even better results, I use a skin primer and baby, is that smooth to apply my foundation over! And, gosh, you have an SPF of 15+ without any gloo on!
Remember I told you that I started out with a big-name brand first? That foundation gave me a shine that was not even natural. I didn’t like the way it looked. Yet, with SMM, I have a soft, matte look. And, along with using my SMM Finishing Veil, I stay shine free with only a touch up of Finishing Veil midday.
