It's no secret that I love make-up and beauty products. Time and time again, we have brought you reviews of beauty products of all sorts. Recently, I participated in a ModernMom campaign where I received Sheer Cover make-up and I'm super excited to tell you about their mineral make-up that I have fallen in love with! They are dermatologist tested, non-comedogentic, paraben-free, fragrance-free, and sensitive skin tested! *Be sure to read at the end of this post where you can enter to win 1 of 10, years worth supplies of Sheer Cover make-up!
I received the following:
Base Perfector Primer
Conceal & Brighten Trio- Concealer
Perfect Shade Mineral Foundation (in medium shade)
Sun-Kissed Bronzing Minerals
Lash Extending Fibers
So to get started, you start by applying a thin layer of the Base Perfector Primer on a clean face. I really like this product because it makes your face a clean "canvas" for the mineral make-up to last longer.
Next, you apply the concealer. I do like that there are two different shades. Before I went to the beach and developed more of a tan I would use both colors to come up with the perfect shade. Once I became more tan I only use the darker concealer and matches my tone perfectly. In this trio-concealer there is also a brightener (the white). I have to admit, before receiving my Sheer Cover make-up I have never used a brightener for and wasn't quite sure what it was for. Thankfully my kit came with a guide and it told me where to apply the brightener and that is for highlighting your eyes. You apply under the brow bones and at the inner and outer corners of each eye, blending well. I am really enjoying the brightener and the concealer! I use the concealer brush and my finger tip to blend in both.
The next step is to put on the mineral foundation. You simply tap a little foundation into the lid, then use a big brush to apply the foundation to your face in circular motions. I love that you can noticeably tell a difference after applying the foundation. It has great converge, but is also so light on your skin-- no thick cakey make-up! Afterwards, I do apply the bronzer onto my face. Since I have tanned more in the last couple of weeks I have noticed that this bronzer is not dark enough for my skin tone, but it will be perfect for me as a winter bronzer once I lose my tan (sad face).
Having a really good mascara is important to me. My eyelashes are definitely blonde and thin, so I am always wanting to lengthen them and thicken them. While the lengthening mascara and lash extending fibers do get the job done and accomplish a look I like, it is not my favorite mascara. I'm noticing it is really "sticky" and I do not like that all in a mascara. However, it is very easy to apply the mascara and fibers which is nice.

Overall, I am really loving the Sheer Cover products and my 'fresh and light' look! All of my blemishes are easily covered and ultimately that is what I am looking for when choosing make-up!
