I will never forget the time I decided my cute little doll needed some blush. I climbed up the shelf in my moms bathroom, and grabbed the brightest blush I could find. I took the blush brush, and put it all over her face. Little did I know, it really wasn’t meant for my doll, and blush wasn’t meant to go all over your face either. Regardless, I thought it looked amazing. Looking back, it was an important moment in my life. I was no longer just a 6 year old girl, I was a makeup addict! The years to follow would prove that no makeup shelf was too high for me, and no face would go untouched. I remember putting makeup on my mom, my dad, my DOG (poor thing), basically anything that looked like a face, had makeup on it. It wasn’t until high school that I really decided to start wearing makeup myself.
At the time I was blessed with beautiful skin (little did I know that the makeup I was using was actually hurting my skin, not helping it). So when I decided to start wearing makeup it was slow and gradual. First it was eye liner and mascara, then some shadow, and lip gloss…and then I graduated to foundation. I was SO jealous of all my friends with their Covergirl compacts. I had to get my own. I think I picked the wrong color about 12 times before I finally found the right color.
It wasn’t long after I started wearing makeup that I noticed my skin was slowly starting to breakout and my pores were extremely clogged. I quickly realized that my skin did not like what I was putting on my face. And I was not using it properly either. I would go to bed with it on, and wash it off the next morning. I stopped using that makeup and decided I was NOT going to use makeup again for a LONG time.
After beauty school I decided to try my hand at foundation again. I knew much more about makeup than I did when I was 14!
A couple of things I learned.
- You have to be careful about what you put on your face, because not all products are created equal.
- If you decide you want to use a product, you need to use it the correct way.
- invest in your skin, it is with you all day, every day.
- Skin health is IMPORTANT. If your skin is not in great condition now, using anything less than pharmaceutical grade makeup or skin care is not going to do your skin any favors.
- Makeup is not meant to just cover things up, good quality makeup should help your skin too!
And that is when I was introduced to Glominerals. A makeup brand I had never heard of.
This makeup is like nothing else you will find at Sephora, or Target. Glo is pharmaceutical grade makeup that is full of nutrients, and antioxidants, that are actually GOOD for your face. It is more beneficial to wear this makeup than nothing at all, because at the same time you are wearing it, it is healing your skin. I fell in love with this makeup because not only was it gentle enough for me to wear, but it didn’t make my skin breakout, or clog up.
Because Glo is a less known name, we get a ton of questions about it – here are a couple we hear on a regular basis:
Who should use this type of makeup?
Pretty much anyone can use GloMinerals. Glo has many different shades as well as multiple powder and liquid formulations. This is also a great makeup to try if you have sensitive skin, or if you are just not satisfied with your current brand of makeup.
What is it made of?
Glo is 100% minerals made. It does NOT contain talc or any fillers and is triple milled for optimal quality.
