Clarins BB Skin Perfecting Cream + Skin Illusion Mineral Powder!

Clarins BB Skin Perfecting Cream in 02 Medium

Hey Beauties! This is a nice foundation combo if you want to create a natural lightweight finish. Clarins BB Skin Perfecting Cream in 02 Medium on its own is a little too dark for my skin tone at the moment, if you are very fair I'd recommend the 01 shade. However, set with Clarins Skin Illusion Mineral Loose Powder Foundation in 108 Sand the BB cream looks perfect. If you don't know what BB cream is, it's basically skincare and foundation at once, quite often with a not very strong coverage, so it either can be used in place of tinted moisturiser, base, or SPF. Clarins BB Skin Perfecting Cream has a light coverage, it helps to create a more even skin tone and gives you a great base for a mineral foundation. But if you have acne scars or other visible imperfections then you will need to use a concealer. You can of course use the BB cream on its own if you have dry or normal skin type, but I have a combination skin so I always need to set it with a mineral foundation.

Clarins Skin Illusion Loose Powder Foundation is beautiful product to use on its own or as a setting powder. The fine milled Minerals & Plant Extracts create the ultra-fine silky texture, for a natural and flawless skin. It can be built up from light to a medium coverage. This mineral foundation  has illuminating properties, although it is meant to give you a matte finish the skin will still look beautifully radiant and perfectly even, so it is great for all skin types. On my combination skin I had to retouch the powder foundation after a couple of hours, as my skin started to look a bit too glowy. The packaging is stunning, it comes with a great quality pop out kabuki brush, which you have to push out and click back in place. It does look stunning on the vanity table! Both the BB cream and mineral foundation have a gorgeous rose scent.
