    I love my mineral makeup!! The best I've used and still use is glo mineral makeup & bronzer.

    Everyone always asks what makeup I use and tell me I have flawless skin, If only they saw me at 6am lol. I get redish skin around my chin and nose and dark circles under my eyes but mineral make is amazing.

    I use bare minerals and love it.
    you can get a starter pack with a few different colours, brushes and a DVD on how to apply. Someone have me a starter pack a few years back which is how I got addicted to it.

    You'll NEED a kabuki brush to apply it, so don't scrimp on that. You won't get any real use out of your product if you're using a different brush or a crap kabuki.

    Minerals can offer great coverage - you can usually determine the level of coverage based on how much you buff into your skin. At currently I've got 3 brands that I use - Yuva, Priori and Dottie and Ez. Dottie and Ez is my favourite, and it's got kaolin clay and silica powder in there, which is great for oilier skins (these 2 ingredients absorb oil - they're often used in skincare products).

    You can order samples as well for a few bucks, to see which colour is going to suit you best.http://www.allnaturalmakeup.com.au/m...Pack-Fair-Skin

    I buy my glo online from the facial care company. It's the cheapest one I've found
