I am very excited to tell you about this fantastic range of pure mineral makeup! It has just been released into the UK!
For any of you out there that are beauty junkies, please read on, I am pretty sure I have just discovered the best mineral range out there!
Christopher Drummond is a US Celebrity makeup artist and also has been a model for many years.
After being in the fashion industry for a long time and having to wear lots of makeup for shoots etc, he quickly realised how bad makeup could be as his skin regularly broke out.
He began to work on a makeup range himself as nothing he found in the Industry was exactly the kind of product he wanted to use.
After a few years of testing and trialing formulations, the brand is now in full swing and receiving rave reveiws.
Mineral makeup is all the rage these days, but many are quite below the bar of being decent. Some of the major cosmetic brands are bringing out mineral products but they are still not 100% natural nor do they contain the best quality minerals.
Christopher Drummond Beauty has many glowing positives to his range.
His products are some of the best I have tried. The foundations are so fine and just glide over the skin, and give you the healthiest glow, but this is not the best part! The best part is, each product has super antioxidants blended into their formulations.
He has used specially blended organic and 100% vegan ingredients such as Açai, green tea, calming botanicals, balancing essential oils, and anti-inflammatory soy isoflavones and fruit extracts which help to treat the skin and actually make it ‘better’ the more you use it. So for people with Acne, you can use makeup and not make the problem worse, if anything it will help heal it faster!
We all think that skin is far better off without makeup on it but that is no longer true. When we have nothing on our skin, we can actually make it vulnerable to pollution and the environment, air itself these days, is no longer pure.
Also, I would like to add that the foundations and face powders are 100% free of Titanium Dioxide, zinc oxide and Bismuth Oxychloride. Christopher Drummond is the ONLY brand on the market that does not use these three controversal ingredients! Very important and sets his range apart from the rest.
Minerals help to protect and calm the skin. If anyone has a reddened skin that gets quite hot at times, Mineral makeup will benefit you immensely.
What I noticed about these products is despite them being powders, and usually very drying on a dry skin, these did not dry at all and my skin looked hydrated. I also noticed that the powder covered up my fine lines and not accentuated them.
I have a very sensitive skin at times and I know that it is always more uncomfortable before I put mineral makeup on.
Now I have tried many brands, some quite good and some average but I do not think I will try anything better than Christopher Drummonds products.
I did a photoshoot the other day myself and before the makeup artist was there, I put on the Christopher Drummond Veludo Foundation powder and also used the Finale Face powder to set the makeup.
The makeup artist was amazed at the fact that I had done this myself and also because of the products that I had used. She did not believe I hadn’t even used concealer!
She also did not need to touch up my face at all during the shoot! There was no shine and no patchiness even after hours of it being on my skin.
We were both amazed, I had a good close up look at my skin 7 hours after the shoot had started and I couldnt believe how perfect the makeup looked.
The range consists ofChristopher Drummond VELUDO Velvet Foundation Christopher Drummond CONCEALER Christopher Drummond FINALE FINISHING POWDER Christopher Drummond SAÚDE PELE Radiance Booster Christopher Drummond For EYES Christopher Drummond For Lips Christopher Drummond For CHEEKS Christopher Drummond Kits Christopher Drummond Try-Me Sizes
I have tried out the three products below: Veludo Velvet foundation, Finale Finishing powder and Saude Pele Radiance booster. All are equally as good as each other.
This is the kind of makeup you try and think, this is what I am supposed to use, there is no better.
We all want perfect skin and if we don’t have that, we want our makeup to look perfect. Well, now you can have that!
If you don’t want to get the full sizes straight away, you can order small sample jars to test out. They start at £4.00 and you will get a few uses out of them.
If you don’t have a decent kabuki brush, I would recommend ordering one such as this one from Ultimate Kabuki Brushes from the Just Beauty Direct Website.
They are 100% vegan, so soft, the perfect size, and very silky.
A good brush makes all the difference to your makeup effect.
Christopher also has a fantastic Youtube channel with over 70 videos. There are great tutorials and reviews of his products. I also like seeing how just how lovely a person he is too, and it doesnt hurt that he is pretty darn cute as well!
