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.

Mineral Makeup for Oil Control
As I continue to roadtest mineral makeup here, I discover more and more precious gems that are certainly for keepers, and one of them is from the brand BareFaced Minerals – the shade of Cinnabear. Whoever inspired Rhonda to come up with this shade should be worshipped. No, seriously! The picture might be a lil matte, but if you see it up close, it’s a beautiful beautiful shade ! I promise! ( I don’t usually rave without good reason *wink* )
From the BareFaced Minerals Website, Cinnabear blush is described as,
A perfect blush or bronzer. Semi-Matte finish.
