Reviews: bareMinerals Well-Rested face and eye brightener and Ready Eyeshadow in The Perfect Storm

bareMinerals Ready Eyeshadow in The Perfect Storm-£19 / bareMinerals Well-Rested Face and Eye Brightener -£22

bareMinerals is one of those beauty brands that you can really rely on if you are looking for good-quality products that are kind to your skin. Up until now, I have only used their blush as part of my daily make-up routine, but after trying these two products that is probably about to change.

Two of my very good friends are always raving about these eyeshadow palettes and say that  the colours are super long-lasting as they tend to stay in place without smudging. 

I wanted to put their theory to the test, so I went for a palette called The Perfect Storm, which contains a bright white eyeshadow called Cumulus and a dark taupe shade in Tempest. 

At first glance, the white eyeshadow appears quite scary as I would usually use beige or shimmering golden tones if I was going to wear a pale base. But when it's blended with the dark taupe it creates the most beautiful smoky eyes. 

I applied the white shade in the corner of my eyes which helped to make them appear brighter and I then added Tempest until it faded gradually to the other corner of my eye. So my decision is made...the taupe smoky eye is definitely going to be my staple Spring Summer look!

Another bareMinerals product I have been pretty impressed with is the Well-Rested Face and Eye Brightener.

 I tend to be quite a night owl these days, so I probably don't get as much sleep I'm supposed to which means this product is going to be my latest skin saviour!

So far, I am loving the texture as it is smooth and silky and the fact that it is fuss free in terms of it's application is always a winner. You simply twist the end of the pen and away you go!

Since using this highlighter on my cheeks and eyes, I have noticed a big difference in the way my skin looks and feels. It appears much more radiant and has definitely helped to mask my tired eyes!

I would also recommend this product as a primer, as it contains light-reflecting particles to even out the skin tone. If you are interested in trying out these products for yourself you can find them both here.
