I am so drawn to mineral foundations because they are healthier bets for your skin, especially for anyone with allergy problems or prone to acne.  Many traditional foundations have talc and harsher ingredients in the binders and preservatives that can lead to sensitivity issues or breakouts.  Less risky are the natural mineral foundations since they do not have any talc, dyes, perfumes, parabens, or preservatives associated with likely reactions.  

 Recently, I tried Advanced Mineral Makeup from highly acclaimed TV and film makeup artist, Annie Mayo, and was more than impressed with the gentle formula and flawless coverage of her Pressed Powder Foundation that I looked forward to reviewing her Loose Powder Foundation in the same shade of Taylor, the lightest of the three color choices.

Using mineral foundation simplifies your beauty routine because with a quick swipe or two of your brush, depending on the coverage you need from light to medium, you can apply.  Though the easiest way, instead I dip a cotton ball into the foundation and dab the powder on, pressing it in and then brushing away the excess.  Applying the foundation this way gives longer lasting coverage and prolonged that gorgeous almost airbrush looking finish I discovered from its vitamin-enriched formula.   Try this technique with any loose powder deepens the coverage and keeps shine away so much longer.

I really like the Advanced Mineral Makeup Powder Foundations of either form now that I had the chance to wear them because they don't fade or seem to settle into wrinkles like some foundations can after a period of time.  Another thing that is dear to my heart is how ultra- breathable their mineral foundations are for your skin. 

As to my favorite form, I do prefer the pressed form for when I am especially short of time, need less coverage, or for taking with me in my handbag.  When I want more coverage, I do migrate toward the loose form. 

If you haven't tried Advanced Mineral Makeup Loose Powder Foundation, I can tell you now that you will be glad you found their website once you see what it can do for your face.  Either form retails for $38.50 at Advanced Mineral Makeup.   Like I said, I do love the Pressed Powder Foundation as well, only in different ways.
