Jane Iredale's Purepressed Base Mineral Foundation in Golden Glow

Get that golden glow

Get that golden glow

There are a few life-changeing people in my life. I think I can count all of them on both of my hands. Romina happens to be one of those people.

Heck, she saved my eyebrows, helped calm down my problematic skin and suggested I try out Jane Iredale's powder foundation. Almost immediately, I marched over to Miss Fox (my local stockist in Melbourne) to get colour matched -- Golden Glow is my saving grace.

Golden Glow is a warm beige with golden undertones. It perks up my skin, disguises my red cheeks, squashes blemishes and ultimately leaves an empty canvas for me to do whatever I please. To apply I like to use Bare Minerals Powder Foundation Brush.

The initial purchase is an investment thanks to the refillable compact. Look at it this way, you're reducing the amount of waste and you get to have your MacGyver moment when it's time to jimmy the empty pan out of the case. The magnetic base is seriously strong!

All told, I've been using Jane Iredale's Purepressed Base Mineral Foundation for a little over a year and a half and I only just switched over to my third refill. This stuff doesn't discriminate -- it's seen me through some of my worst skin days.
