Why We Like bareMinerals
"bareMinerals is the brand we can trust to look after our skin whilst we flaunt iconic makeup looks. Their mineral-powered formulas allow us to get creative without having to worry about breakouts, blocked pores or damaged skin as a consequence. We particularly adore the best-selling Complexion Rescue Tinted Moisturizer, especially on those 'no-makeup' makeup days. "
