Beauty Spot: Arbonne Mineral Powder Foundation

I was recently sent the Arbonne Mineral Powder to try out. I was so excited to try it because I have never actually tried a powder foundation before. I usually use foundations which have a moose of liquid consistency. 

The Arbonne Mineral Powder Foundation packaging looks like this....


I really like the sleek design, it's just cool to look at and it's the perfect size that could fit in a handbag nicely.  

 After trying it I realised that a little goes a long way! The way I applied it was with a large buffing brush. I tapped the brush into the powder and buffed it into my skin. Once I did this I went outside to take a photo of my skin in natural light, which made me realise I should have primed first or placed this mineral powder over a more wet foundation. I have large pores and my skin has been getting extremely dry for some reason, so the powder seemed to be showing of my large pores and dry skin patches (as you can see from the photo below....

I then decided to clean my face and do what I should have done in the first place, I primed my face and then applied the powder. This time it worked so much better, as you can see below. My skin looked smoother and felt so much better!

 I have to admit, I definitely need more practice with applying powder but I think it will be one of my new good friends!

Let me know if you use a mineral powder foundation, have you tried the Arbonne one?
