Gems and jewels give skin a precious glow

Get skin like Angelina's with smoothing new make-up

by hellomagazine.com

This autumn sees a plethora of mineral make-up launches by most of the big beauty houses. And there's a sneak preview of Prescriptives' at Selfridges from July 19, 2008, with a special offer, too, so you can help create skin as lumininous as Angelina Jolie's without breaking the bank.

All Skins Mineral Makeup SPF15, £24, contains vitamins and minerals without the usual oil, talc and fragrance of traditional foundation. Plus it includes amethyst and rose quartz for a more flawless, lightweight finish. And silica helps keep skin shine-free. As with all mineral foundations, the formulation is powder and needs to be smoothed into the skin by rotating round a much shorter, stiffer brush onto the face than would normally be used with powder, which is traditionally swept over the face – mineral make-up is 'worked' into the skin.

Prescriptives has created its own Round Buff Brush to go with the new mineral foundation, which will be retailing for £24 when it goes on general sale nationwide from August 2, 2008. For the two-week preview period at Selfridges, the brush and foundation will be available for £38 when purchased together, saving £10 on the brush. Call 0870 034 2566 for stockists.
