Re: Everyday Minerals (all)
One more thing I've heard has caused irritation while using mineral foundation popped into mind just now: a brush that's too harsh. Some people have been fine by washing their foundation brush (be it a kabuki or whatever) more often and some just need a softer brush. I'm using MAC's 187 and am loving it. Compared to any kabuki, powder or blush brush I've had (and I've had some very good brushes) it's super soft. Some skins don't like any sort of buffing either. Then again, the "glowing ingredient" might be the thing causing trouble, but that's easily sorted by trying out matte fndts. I hear Meow has some really nice ones for oilier skins at least.
ladyJ, I just love EM's blushes! I have so many I'll soon start storing them in a bag from which I'll draw the blush of the day each morning with my eyes closed (I'm sure the daily blush lottery would definitely make my morning routines more exciting ). Which foundation do you use? I'm not familiar with MAC blush colours since my skin can't handle the talc-y formula, but basically, what kind of colouring do you have?
