Mineral makeup seems to have a great rap with my circle of friends but, not having experience in different kinds for raw mineral makeup, I decided to test out a few products. My favorite was Raw Natural Beauty because the Discovery Kit was a huge perk for me. Basically, you’re buying a kit and you get 7 pieces that will make your life easier. The Raw Minerals Discovery Kit comes with 2 foundation shades, Mineral Glow, Active Veil SPF 18, maximum coverage foundation brush, concealer brush, and a multi-tasking retractable brush. The Raw Minerals Discovery Kit is usually $180 but, with the Promotion code Discovery50 you get 50% off and free shipping!

Before purchasing, the first step is to pick your shade, and the website is very helpful with this process. The whole thing is spelled out for you. You have 4 categories to choose from: tan, medium, light and deep. Once you select a shade you get two different foundation shades and either one of them will work or you can blend them to get that perfect shade. After applying the foundation on a clean face, you can apply the Glow on cheeks, nose and neck, but I used mine on cheeks only. After you are all done you use the Active Veil SPF 18 for the entire face to set the foundation in place. These three easy steps are all it takes to get luminous, healthy looking skin.

I think this would be a great gift for moms and sisters for the holidays. I could see my mom loving this because it’s a minimal amount of makeup that goes a long way. The foundation is lightweight and doesn’t sit in wrinkles and fine lines. It really doesn’t feel or look like you’re wearing a lot of makeup. As I mentioned before, the interactive website is also very helpful. It goes through the steps of applying mineral makeup in the simplest terms for those that are mineral makeup virgins. Another perk is getting 2 different foundations, which enable you to darken or lighten your face. This is also good when transitioning into different seasons. Check out the website and get the process of radiant glowing skin started!
