I’ve mentioned the bareMinerals Prime Time Neutralizing Foundation Primer a few times (including in last months love list here) because it is just so good and now I’ve finally got the pictures together to show you what I mean, hopefully you’ll see why I’m such a fan!
The bareMinerals Neutralizing Foundation Primer performs quite a few functions on top of neutralising redness; it evens skintone, combats flakiness and includes light-reflecting pigments to brighten skin which is especially helpful as a lot of colour neutralising products can leave skin looking rather dull and flat.
Interestingly, this primer has a great feel to it and doesn’t have that siliconey feel that a lot of primers do. I apply this with a dabbing motion using a synthetic brush (such as The Body Shop’s Foundation Brush) which allows the primer to effectively reduce the redness without looking too heavy and I find one pump is enough to cover all my redness. I then apply a foundation over the top and conceal anything that needs help. The big thing for me is that this primer does a lot of the work that I usually rely on foundation for, meaning I can go for a lighter base that looks a lot more natural all round and it works well under both liquid and powder foundations. As you can see from the pictures, the redness-reducing effect is quite something, so if you have spots or Rosacea then this primer will do a great job at neutralising the redness considerably.
