Why Makeup Makes Me Feel Like a Princess (Giveaway)

My skin tone looks SO uneven. It’s splotchy from sun exposure this year, there is redness, and don’t get me started on my adult acne. I honestley feel like I have the skin of a 15 year old girl going through puberty!

Anyone else out there have skin like that?

Because of my skin, I have to be very careful about the products I use. One wrong move and I will have a major breakout going on in my chin and neck area. I think it has to do with the chemicals used in certain pressed powders. They really do a number on my skin. However, I was recently  introduced to Advanced Mineral Makeup, a company with women like me in mind.

Advanced Mineral Makeup creates pressed powders and mineral foundations that are made with organic material. This allows your face to feel beautiful without worrying about what you are putting on your face. They contain important nutrients like Vitamin A & E and do not contain talc, starch, perfumes, bismuth oxycloride or other unhealthy substances that are often found in conventional makeup.

I was sent both the pressed powder and the loose powder to try out. I have never had a makeup that allows my skin to breathe so easily while making me feel as beautiful as a princess!

What you can’t see from this picture is all my acne and redness that usually take over my face! My entire skin tone looks like one color — like it should. I was extremely impressed and have become a fan for life of the Advanced Mineral Makeup line. Yes– it is a bit more expensive than my normal makeup, but I have come to realize that you get what you pay for. So I will definitely pay a bit more to make me feel like a beauty queen!

Reasons that Advanced Mineral Makeup is WORTH the extra money!

  • Non-comedogenic and oil-free allowing your skin to breathe.
  • Anti-inflammatory and helpful with sensitive acne and rosacea-prone skin.
  • Advanced minerals are 100% pigment.
  • No perfume or FD & C dyes are used in our bases offering a minimum allergy risk.

    I really wish makeup could take away my double chin,but since that’s not possible I would love to have makeup that moisturizes.

  2. Lisa Brown says

    I wish my makeup really did cover redness and the multitude of broken capillaries on my face :(

    I wish my makeup made me look older! I hate looking so young. Yes, I know I may appreciate this youthful look when I am in my 60’s but pushing 30 and looking like a teen isn’t that enjoyable.

  4. Christine Jensen says

    for me, I wish it would last longer. When I put on make-up I am usually pretty happy with how I look, but inevitably by the end of the day my foundation has started to wear off and my skin doesn’t look as nice :(

  5. Susan P. says

    I need make-up to even out my skin tone and take away the redness. Many brands of make-up seem to make the rosacea worse so I have to be careful of what I use.

    i have freckles and hate them, but after 55 years i am use to them, now my grandduaghter is 9 and has a face full of freckles and she is beautiful. i love hers but i dont like mine. i would cove mine up but keep hers glowing. if this makes sense to you.

    I am entering this for my daughter she is 17. She came home from Rehab on November 6th and we always have shared our makeup. I love monerals because it covers my dark circles and she loves it because it has reduced acne qualities!

  8. ANGEL JACKLYN says

    SIMPLE- I WISH IT WOULD NOT MAKE ME BREAK OUT!!! I HAVE YET TO COME ACROSS A FOUNDATION THAT DOESN’T FEEL LIKE I AM WEARING CAKE ON MY FACE & ALWAYS RESULTS IN PIZZA FACE- UGH! NO JOKE- WHETHER IT CLAIMS TO NOT BLOCK PORES OR NOT, IT ALWAYS ENDS THE SAME… GUESS I JUST HAVE BAD LUCK???

    ADVANCED MINERAL MAKEUP SOUNDS LIKE A DREAM AND I DON’T MIND TRYING EVERYTHING AT LEAST ONCE, I’M JUST FLAT BROKE AT THE MOMENT =(

  9. Jennifer Ilojiole says

  10. kim lazor says

    I wish that it would hide those dark circles, tiny fine lines, and be good for my skin. I know…I am asking a lot, right?!?

  11. LV says

    I just don’t wear powder or foundation because it is heavy on my skin. This product looks light enough to wear everyday and natural, too! I’d like to win!

  12. Molly Bussler says

    Wish my makeup would hide the tiredness that I have from the lack of sleep, getting up at night w a baby is hard.

  13. Jordan Y says

    I have very oily skin so anything that would help tone down the oil and not wear off within a couple of hours.

  14. ACMommy3 says
