Most of you are probably familiar with my friend Ingrid Nilsen, she is the definition of BAE and continues to be a badass boss in everything she does. Not to mention the fact that she’s an all-round wonderful human being and a real GEM to have in my life! I wanted to put together a blog post all about something that Ingrid has been working so hard on for quite a while now and I’m so excited to tell you guys all about it! Ingrid has partnered with bareMinerals to bring us a collection of three of her most favourite illuminating bareMinerals products. The collection is GORGEOUS and contains everything you’ll ever need to create the perfect glowing base for any makeup look.

The collection includes one of the Original Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Foundations, a limited edition Invisible Glow Highlighter, a limited edition Beautiful Finish Brush and of course this cute makeup bag-Ingrid picked some real gems! They’re all wonderful in their own right and when you use them together they create the perfect base for whatever makeup look you’re going for.

You guys know that I’m all about that glow, so this limited edition Invisible Glow Highlighter is perfect for me! Ingrid developed this product in a shade that is guaranteed to flatter all skin tones, so don’t fret if you’re wondering whether this highlighter will work with your skin. I’m a bit of a highlighter hoarder and this one is definitely going to be a permanent fixture in my collection.I use a brush to pick up some of the product before sweeping it over the tops of my cheekbones, I also like to dab some under the arch of my eyebrows, on the tip of my nose and in my cupids bow. This stuff is gorgeous, you need it in your life!
This foundation is simply gorgeous! I hardly ever reach for a mineral foundation these days, but using this reminded me why I used to wear mineral makeup religiously. It’s designed to give your skin a flawless coverage with a super lightweight, bare skin feel (which as you guys know, I LOVE). What I really like about this foundation is that it’s super buildable and although it looks like a powder it actually feels like a cream on your skin, so you can build it up without looking super cakey. It’s enriched with SPF 15 which helps to shield your skin from the sun’s rays and prevents any damage from becoming visible on your face. This stuff is super easy to apply, all I do is pick up some of the product onto a brush and tap off any excess before buffing it into my skin. I like to start from the centre of my face and work my way outwards in circular motions. This foundation gives my skin a subtle coverage and a natural looking glow. I love it!
First of all, can we just talk about how super cute this brush is? I wish you guys could feel the bristles through the screen because it’s pretty much the softest brush I’ve ever felt, it’s beautiful! The Beautiful Finish Brush has been designed to fit perfectly into the Bare Minerals Original Foundation lids so its the ideal tool to use to apply your Broad Spectrum Foundation. Whenever I use this brush I actually notice a difference in the way the foundation looks on my skin, its wide handle means that it’s easy to control and allows you to get a really even application.

Make sure you get your hands on one of these gorgeous limited edition makeup sets! I absolutely love each and every one of the products that Ingrid has chosen to include in the collection and I know that you will too. Let me know which of the three products is your favourite by commenting down below. Huge congratulations to Ingrid for working so hard and launching this amazing collection!
