Beauty Find: Easy Summer Shimmer

What: Piaffe Mineral Loose Powder

Why: Maybe it’s flashbacks from elementary school musicals, but the pancake-y feeling of liquid foundation makes my skin crawl. Foundation formulas have become lighter over the past few decades, but the feeling of a bare face is always preferable. Still, a makeup-less face doesn’t always cut it. Piaffe Mineral Loose Powder is light enough that your skin can breathe, which is key is stifling summer heat, but it provides enough coverage to wear by itself. Plus, it has a hint of shimmer and it’s SPF 8. You need the SPF and mineral makeup lacks harmful chemicals. Are you sold? I am.

Price: $34
