I recently attended a make-up session presented by Glo Minerals. This was a new make-up line to me and it was fun to talk with the make-up artist, Bethany, and learn about the products and the line. Glo Minerals is a professional mineral make-up line that is cruelty-free, talc-free and non-comedogenic. While not a solely natural line, the products contain a number of natural and botanical ingredients.
Bethany applied a full face starting with the Protective Liquid Foundation in the matte finish. This foundation gives a lot of coverage, but it felt very light. Bethany sprayed a mist on the foundation to make it dewier and easier to blend. She used the Glo Therapeutics Calming Flower Mist. At home I’ve been using Lush’s Breath of Fresh Air, and I really like the results this technique gives.

On the eyes, we used the Glo Minerals eye shadow in a mossy green on the lid and a gray green in the crease. She used a combination of the lengthening and volumizing mascara to good effect. On the brows she used their Brow Collection Kit, which includes brushes, tweezers, stencils, two powder shades, a highlighter and a wax. So, like, basically everything.
Bethany gave me a tip on filling in brows: If you want to add fullness to brows build up top of brows to avoid bringing the brows down.

We finished off the look with Spice Berry, a powder blush, and Suede Matte Lipstick in Port, a dark burgundy. Even though this lipstick was matte and long lasting, it was incredibly hydrating, which is a difficult feat to pull off. It contains Vitamins C and E as well as conditioning Mango Oil and Shea Butter, which gives the moisture.

As much as I liked the lipstick, I am trying to kick my lippy habit and so instead chose to bring home with me the Spice Berry blush. It’s a universally flattering shade of bronzy peach. The blush is highly pigmented and lasts a good long while. It contains Vitamins A, C, E and Green Tea Extract to make skin feel good.
I was pleased with all the Glo Minerals products used. They were of high quality and felt very light, not make-upy at all. The prices of the products are reasonable for the quality and are in line with most mid-range brands. This cosmetic line is exceptionally good for those with sensitive skin, so if you are having skin issues, I would not hesitate to give it a try.
