Looks like it’s graduation season again ( end of March ), and as The Blushing Vixen featured her gorgeous sister’s FOTD, let me just share my baby sister Sarabeth‘s FOTD, whose makeup I did, just a few hours ago.
This is what the makeup set that I have prepared for Sarabeth a night before , since she planned on waking up 5 am in the morning, and her makeup was to be done at 6 o’clock. No time for me to think then!
I wanted a fresh, simple look for the graduating sixth grader so I chose the following minerals and tools to get the job done :

Mineral Makeup FOTD : Sarabeth’s Graduation
Having seriously dark undereyes had been a problem since the word stress and insomnia introduced themselves to me. Thank heavens for mineral makeup! With Bare Escentuals’ Well Rested and Ocean Mist’s saffron yellow concealer, I am able to look my best everyday. As if I had a good night’s sleep. Here’s a before-and-after shot of me with and without concealer:
Looking for your HG (holy grail) concealer is quite tedious, just as finding the perfect tools in giving you bright undereyes. I must admit it took me over a year (yes, I’m turning one year with mineral makeup!) to almost perfect applying concealer. And to be honest, I still am using a cream concealer from a non-mineral makeup brand to help in the staying power of my loose powder concealers. I rarely have any problems anymore, except when I over-apply too much product. I ended up looking like a panda, only that it’s a weird, yellow circle around my eyes. Lol.

Mineral Makeup Loves the Undereyes!
I was able to stock up some Oceanmist products a few months ago as they had a buy one, take one sale on their products. Mineral makeup sales are just so darn tempting because the promos are so generous! I was able to buy 2 full pots of Saffron Undereye Concealer (yeah, one can never have too much of this, this is a miracle worker ), and I decided to try again their foundation. Months ago, when Oceanmist first opened, they had limited shades, that hindered me from getting my shade. With their additional shades that had golden ( or yellow ) undertones in them, I was able to pick two shades to try : Lilia and Dandelion

From Illuminare Cosmetics:
I mentioned in my last article that Nikki, our latest addition to the talented mineral makeup blog writers here, has a penchant for MIY ( make-it-yourself ), and her latest project? Pressing her loose minerals! She’s quite outdone herself for the pictures of her pressed minerals are beautiful!
One thing that turns off some people with trying (or sticking with) mineral makeup is its form. Most are in loose powder form which makes application a bit messy especially for beginners. There is also difficulty in traveling with it or bringing it along for touch ups because it is bulky, requiring more tools and pots inside your makeup bag. Because of this, some mineral makeup companies are now coming up with their own lines of pressed minerals. Continue Reading »

Oceanmistâ€™s Saffron Yellow Color Corrector = Good night’s sleep
Yellow is a well-known corrector for nasty dark undereye circles. When I saw this in the sample pot, I was pleasantly surprised because it is a true yellow yellow, unlike others whose color correctors were pale and not yellowy enough. I believe I am the true test when it comes to concealing the dark circles because I have the darkest circles ever, because of genes and constant late night studying, thus lack of precious sleep.

Mineral Makeup For a Fresh Summer Look
Who doesn’t want free samples? They’re great ways of roadtesting mineral makeup brands before committing to full sized versions of them! One catch though – they’re free alright, but shipping isn’t. All we have to do is pay for the postage stamps, which , in my opinion is fair enough to the generous company owners.
This list will be updated, as soon as I get more leads and emails from helpful readers and brand owners themselves! So help me out here to create a great list of free mineral makeup offers! Continue Reading »
