    Change your life, change your makeup, part 2

    Last time we talked about changing skin tone and how to adapt makeup to that, but what happens if the feel, texture, behavior of the skin changes? Keep reading for a fun New Year giveaway! Mineral makeup foundations Life change: skin condition My skin is fairly oily in the summer, and super dry in the winter. During the summer months, PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation gives me just the right touchable barely-there coverage. But right around -- oh last weekend -- my skin suddenly looks dull. Makeup change: foundation diversification When I am seasonally disaffected with my skin, I switch my foundation. As soon as the cold weather and dry inside heat make me look ashy, I switch to Amazing Base Loose Mineral Powder. It breathes a whole new, luminous life into my complexion, and gives me the extra coverage I need during this time of year. In May-June, when dewy becomes unflatteringly shiny, I know it is time to switch back to the fresh, sheer finish of my trusty PurePressed Base. If you prefer liquid/cream formulas, try Dream Tint Tinted Moisturizer in the summer and Glow Time Mineral BB Cream in the winter. If Liquid Minerals A Foundation is your BFF, you still need SPF, so try topping it with a dusting of PurePressed Base in the summer, and Amazing Base in the winter. Skin changes may strike during different life phases, too. Aging, hormonal changes, pregnancy, and changes in lifestyle and health can change our skin. If your skin just doesn't seem to look as fresh and lovely as it used to, consider foundation diversification. Aren't we lucky that we have such a huge range of foundations to choose from? The year is coming to an end, but we’re not done giving yet! Comment below and tell us what you’re going to do for a fresh start in 2013 and you could receive our Fresh Start Kit, this includes a Starter Kit, POMMISST Hydration Spray and Magic Mitt! Happy New Year!
