bareMinerals READY SPF 15 Touch Up Veil

This summer, I’ve been on the hunt for a pressed powder to throw in my purse. I don’t have oily skin, but with all this heat I was getting shiny. At the same time, I didn’t want a lot of color. A tinted BB Cream is already part of my routine, so I just wanted something that would improve staying power, cut the shine and provide a little touch up.

Eureka!¬†bareMinerals READY SPF 15 Touch Up Veil hit the nail on the head. This solid mineral compact uses their¬†proprietary SeaNutritive Mineral Complex. So you get anti-aging benefits while you touch up. I love that it also has SPF. It isn’t enough alone, but it certainly doesn’t hurt. The effect is soft skin that looks even and airbrushed. It doesn’t have a matte finish, but reduces shine in a natural way.

You can use it with the enclosed puff, but I carry a Trish McEvoy Bronzer Brush in my purse and I love the way it blends out the powder. While this also comes in Tinted, I prefer the Translucent. It doesn’t require precision while you are on the go. And works for any skin color.
