bareMinerals Mineral Veil

For over a year now, the ultimate finishing touch to my make up has been the bareMinerals Mineral Veil. I always use a setting powder and if not Rimmel's failproof Stay Matte, it's all about this wonderful product.

The powder is available in original, tinted, illuminating and even hydrating specialised formulas, all of which are going to really lock your make up in place, all day long. This powder absorbs excess oils in your skin, without drying it out, taking away the 'glow' or enlarging any fine lines or pores. If you're on the search for a longevity solution, then this flawless finalé cannot come any higher recommended...

To apply the product, I tap a little of the powder into the lid and use the large bareMinerals Full Flawless Face Brush. Tapping off excess product will ensure a completely airbrushed finish. Then, I press the powder into my under eyes and over any other areas where I have used concealer and do not want it to move. Then , I buff the brush over the rest of my face, concentrating on my t-zone where I my skin tends to become oily over the course of the day. The result: the longevity of my make up is instantly improved and I'm left with a weightless, baby soft, flawless finish. bareMinerals also live up to their namesake with minimalistic packaging. I really like the sifter, which is very effective at controlling the amount of product that you're using in one go and is actually something that I would love to see on some of the more high end loose powders. Overall, at only £20, this is one of the best finishing powders that I have used and one of the products in my make up bag that I can really rely on.



  1. I've never had a loose powder before and never tried bare minerals! Glad it doesn't take away too much of that 'glowiness' but keeps oils at bay, I have such a problem with that, hate looking too powdered! X

    1. It's fantastic Hannah! I'd love to try more high end powders (have had my eye on Laura Mercier's for ages!) but for now - this does a fantastic job! x

  2. I won this powder a couple of months ago and I love it! x
