Product Profile: ColoreScience
Today I would like to share with you my all time favorite make up line…Colorescience!
I was introduced to this mineral make-up line back in 2009, when I worked at Spruce Body Lab in Vancouver, Canada and was immediately hooked.
Not only does it even out complexion but it also provides SPF coverage. The advanced UV protection comprised of naturally safe zinc and titianium actually creates a breathable mesh on skin to keep the bad stuff out and the good stuff in. Colorescience uses pure micronized minerals, processed in a way that does not cause harm. They are completely water-resistant and form a protective barrier on the skin keeping the skin clean and clear. Using high-tech ingredients that actually nourish and protect the skin (peptides, pearl powder, salicylic acid, and liquid crystals), Colorescience is so much more then just make-up.
This make up product works to camouflage the skin while protecting it from the damaging effects of the sun and the environment. With regular use, your skin will appear healthier and more radiant.
I use Tint du Soleil as my base (SPF 30) and it acts as a primer, completely smoothing out my skin. I follow with the pressed powder foundation. I find that it adds just enough coverage for that nice even complexion.
Next I use a little ColoreScience mineral bronzer (Mojave) to give that natural sun kissed glow while also highlighting my cheekbones and temples. If you know me, you know that I naturally have very pink cheeks but in those days where I seem to be lacking a bit of colour, I use the Apple of my eye blush wand.
Eyes & Brows
I recently just started using the ColoreScience mascara and I absolutely love it! They also have a great eyeshadow palette that can be used everyday for work but also has the ability to smoke out the eyes a bit if you are going out or to an event. I'm also a big fan of the mineral brow palette because I also use these colours as eyeshadow as well.
Best Sunscreens for Active People
Being that Perth happens to have approximately 265 days of sunshine per year, it is imperative that we are protecting our skin from harsh UV damage.
The Sunforgettable range by Colorescience is great for those outdoorsy types like myself. It comes in various shade to even out complexion while protecting the skin. My favourite product is the Sunforgettable SPF 50 mineral sunscreen brush. It also comes in a non-pigmented version which is great for men!
