To get Okay, so what if foundation and concealer didn't have to be the big cover up? Many of the foundations we wear to cover skin imperfections actually make them worse. If you find yourself applying more and more layers and feeling like you can't leave the house without your makeup then maybe its time to re-think everything that's going onto ( and into) your skin.
Parabens, silicones, synthetic fragrances, mineral oils etc. are just a few of the controversial ingredients used in cosmetics today. Some of these ingredients are endocrine disruptors, skin irritants, comedogenic and some are toxic to our bodies and the environments.
In the search for foundation and concealer that excluded harmful ingredients I found a lot of mediocrity. Most formulas were rated highly on the "safety scale" but the performance was just not there. There was no way as a makeup artist that I could promote a product that didn't go on well and stay on well.
Advanced Minerals was the perfect fit. This product has a beautiful lasting airbrush finish as well as safe and healing formulations.
The liquid foundation comes in 7 self adjusting formulas making it easy to get a good match and versatile for my clients as they go through the seasons. The product is anti microbial, anti inflammatory, light weight and long lasting. It won't clog pores and is perfect for sensitive skin. No dyes, perfumes, talc, mineral oil or parabens.
Loose and pressed powders can be used alone or with the liquid and contain the same great resume as the liquid foundation. They are build-able and blend-able with a beautiful light diffusing technology. All of AM Foundations and powders contain natural sunscreen. The pigments are very finely milled and won't give you that bounce back white face in a photo and they won't settle accentuate fine lines.
The perfecting concealer works beautifully as an under eye or blemish cover up as well as a primer for your eye shadows. Using a light and dark concealer can give you the ability to contour like the pros! Secret ingredients? Grapeseed oil, vitamin E and shea butter that hydrate your skin. It won't clog pores and won't settle into fine lines but it will stay put all day!
