Nude by Nature

Listed as one of my favourite things, I have been using Nude by Nature Mineral Foundation as my everyday foundation for a few years now.

Nude by Nature foundation is a loose powder that contains natural minerals such as iron oxide, mica, zinc oxide, and titanium dioxide, that gives a natural coverage without any hidden nasties such as fragrances, dyes, preservatives, chemicals, fillers, or synthetic binders that can be found in other make up brands.

When I first came across Nude by Nature I was a little sceptical that a loose powder could give the flawless coverage that it was advertising, but I was pleasantly surprised at the result and I loved that it was so quick and easy to apply.

The Nude by Nature foundation range has three products; the Natural Mineral Foundation available in light, medium and dark (I purchase light as you can always darken it up with a bronzer), Mineral Bronzer and Mineral Finishing Veil.

Personally, I just use the foundation with my own bronzer from a different brand. I have tried the finishing veil which Nude by Nature claims that it diffuses the appearance of wrinkles and adds that luminous, poreless, flawless complexion similar to airbrushing – however I feel the finishing veil is a luxury not an necessity.

Unfortunately, the Nude foundation is not a wonder product and you will need to conceal any dark circles, pimples, redness or any other problem areas before you apply. To apply, simply tap the mineral powder into the lid and use a powder or kabuki brush and swirl in the powder and tap off the excess. Gently buff onto face in circular motions until you receive your desired coverage. Finish with a light bronzer to frame the face or highlight features.

Nude by Nature Mineral foundation is available from Myer, David Jones and Priceline and retails for $39.95.

Note: I have since purchased Chanel’s Vitalumiere Aqua foundation which is my new fav however I still love and use my Nude by Nature everyday during the working week.
