Everyday Minerals has an astounding selection of foundations. Not only do they have a fantastic number of colors, they have four different finishes to choose from! For someone unfamiliar with Everyday Minerals, it can be very overwhelming to select a foundation shade and finish. In this article, I will quickly go over the four different finishes of Everyday Minerals foundations.
Intensive: “Perfectly matte with extra coverage.” This supposedly offers the most coverage. If you need a lot of coverage, consider the intensive formula. It should offer a more matte coverage and even out skin tone and cover some blemishes. If you have a lot of blemishes, or have coloring issues, this may be the formula for you.
Matte: Everyday Minerals claims that this finish is “naturally matte, buildable coverage, full coverage, all skin types, shine free!” Most mineral foundations will have some shimmer and shine to them because they contain mica, a naturally shimmery mineral. However, this foundation is for those with more oily skin who want to get an entirely matte finish. It is very buildable, so you can adjust the amount of coverage according to your needs. However, it won’t allow a glow.
Semi-matte: “Moisturizing silk to satin finish, full coverage, all skin types.” This finish creates a finish that has some more glow than a matte foundation, but still maintains some coverage.
Original Glo: “Luminous with light reflecting minerals, medium to full coverage, normal-dry skin types.” This supposedly offers the least coverage. Though Everyday Minerals claims it has medium to full coverage, really expect it to offer sheer coverage. If you add on too much powder, it will make your face look oily or shiny. Choose this if you’d like light coverage, and keep a dewy look.
Different foundation finishes may suit your skin better. Make sure you consider the needs of your skin, whether you need more or less coverage, whether you need shine control when choosing your foundation.
