Want something that's good for your skin and looks great too?  In that case Barefaced Beauty's award winning mineral makeup is the best option for you.  We only sell the most effective products which are safe for your skin.  All our mineral makeup is free from potential irritants such as parabeans, sodium lauryl sulphate, petroleum, dyes or synthetic fragrances, bismuth or nano technology and as such it is hypoallergenic and a great option for people with sensitive skin.  Also, all our products are packed with vitamins and antioxidants.

Barefaced Beauty mineral makeup has great staying power.  After using our mineral foundation we think you'll agree that getting a flawless, long lasting look has never been so easy!  Our foundation is made from finely milled earth based minerals including mica and zinc oxide.  Zinc oxide has both sun protective and anti-inflammatory properties meaning that your skin is protected from aging and irritation. Mica also possesses some great reflective properties meaning that fine lines are less visible and blemishes are covered up. Our mineral foundation is oil free and does not block pores. Since it is applied as a powder form straight to your skin after preparation, mineral foundation does not give you that cakey look which some liquid based foundations can create.     

Have you been contemplating the idea of testing out mineral foundation for a while now but you're not sure how to go about choosing the right shade for you? Well Barefaced Beauty are here to give you our advice...

First, determine the undertone of your skin. Do you have a yellowy tint to your skin? Or pink? It may sound strange but if you are having trouble deciding you can use the colour of the veins in your wrist to decide. Greener veins tend to appear in people with warmer, yellowy undertones whilst blue veins suggest you have a pinky, cool skin tone. If you're still having trouble deciding then you may have a neutral tone to your skin.

The list below is a handy guide to deciding which of our foundations are the best match for your skin:

  • Serenity for very fair skin with a pink undertone.
  • Gentle for medium skin with pink/bronze undertones.
  • Simple for medium dark skin with a caramel undertone.
  • Whisper for fair to medium skin with a pink undertone.
  • Innocent for very fair skin with a peachy yellow undertone.
  • Promise for fair to medium skin with a neutral undertone.
  • True for medium - tan skin with a peachy yellow undertone.
  • Honest for fair skin with cool olive/neutral undertones.
  • Elegance for medium skin with a golden yellow undertone
  • Sincere for medium - tan skin with both yellow and red undertones.
  • Gracious for fair skin with a neutral undertone.
  • Angelic for medium skin with a neutral undertone.
