Summer is in full swing and no one wants to be an oily mess lol. You all know I love to be dewy and glowing but once summer hits my T Zone gets very oily. Having a fabulous mattifying primer is key to controlling my shine in my problem areas. A new primer on the market is by Bobbi Brown, Primer Plus Mattifier. “A fresh, lightweight face primer that extends the quality of your foundation’s wear while controlling oil, blurring pores and helping keep skin’s moisture level balanced. Skin looks matte, never flat” – bobbibrown.com
Mattifying Primer: All The Details
Price: $38.00 buy it HERE (I must say this is a very nice size. You will get your moneys worth!!)
Controls Shine / Absorbs Oil: With a special powder technology
Sodium Hyalurante: Keeps moisture level balanced
I really am enjoying this primer. I was just talking to my followers on my Instagram how most pore filling primers do not work on me but as long as it says blurring in the description I am good. This is a very light weight primer and has a silky texture. It has a white consistency that is not heavy. I think that is why thicker pore fillers do not work for me. For some reason they break up on my skin and then my foundation looks bad. Once applied even though its to give you a matte finish it almost feels hydrating! Crazy right? It does not dry you out just keeps all that oil at bay.
This primer paired with Bobbi Browns Foundation (see it here) works fantastic. It helps keep the foundation in place all day! I was not only impressed by this mattifying primer but the foundation as well. Another product that is breathable and feels like your skin. So tell me what are some of your must have primers to keep your face matte?

I had the pleasure to attend the Complexions & Cocktails event hosted by Bare Minerals to get a first look at their NEW BarePro Matte Foundation. This event kicked off here in Chicago at the very trendy and stylish Cindy’s Rooftop inside the Chicago Athletic Hotel. The event will be traveling to other states so stay tuned! While we sipped cocktails and ate delicious food we learned all about the NEW BarePro Performance Liquid Foundation and got to preview other Bare Minerals products and new releases. This foundation comes with benefits that has me asking myself, can this be the best matte foundation?
The Bare Minerals Makeup artists were on hand to give all the guests a personal shade match while we sipped on our cocktails. I was very impressed with how fast the Makeup Artist found my shade. Shade 6 matched perfectly to my neck (the best way to find your match!). Once we were matched we were able to go over to what was my version of a candy store to receive our foundation with brush which was made for the foundation along with other Bare Mineral Goodies to try.
Per the Ulta Website: The bareMinerals Luxe Performance Brush is the perfect partner for the creamy texture of barePro Liquid Foundation. Its dense, tapered fibers mimic the shape of your fingertips to provide smooth, flawless coverage, while the compact head size allows for fast and easy blending around hard to reach areas like the nose and eyes.
Lets talk about the claims of this magical matte foundation:
Good For Your Skin
24 Hour Wear
Naturally Matte Finish
Non Chemical SPF 20
Available in 30 Shades
Sounds amazing right? The way they are able to have a naturally matte finish is from the bamboo stem plant extract along with papaya enzymes that improve skins texture over time. The foundation is “powered by Mineral Lock™ Long-Wear Technology that blends mineral pigments with lipids naturally found in skin to lock in transfer-resistant, color-true coverage” Aside from all of this its heat, water, humidity and sweat resistant which is something we need for Chicago Summers lol
In the next couple weeks I will be testing out the foundation so please stay tuned! I did play around with it the other day and to my surprise when I pumped it on my hand (yes it has a pump!! winner right there!) it was very thin and creamy and it covered my redness immediately. Needless to say I am very excited and intrigued by this foundation.
I received a ton of questions on Instagram about my makeup for the event so I wanted to give you a breakdown of the products I used. I kept my makeup minimal with a bold red lip. I knew I did not want to do a full coverage foundation as I wanted to be matched as accurate as possible. I was actually very pleased with the outcome and it lasted despite the fact that I forgot to put on primer. Oops!
