When I went to New York over the holidays, a few people commented on my “healthy California glow” and I was more than eager to brag about how it was naturally faux. I discovered the wonders of mineral makeup after realizing that most blushes and bronzers contain toxic ingredients you don’t want your body to absorb. Of course it makes sense that something natural will look natural, but I was surprised to find that it works even more effectively in making skin look good. Oh, and there’s a natural SPF in it, too. (I know, what’s not to love?) I’ve been using Mineral Veil by Bare Escentuals.
