The Beauty Insider’s Monthly Miracles: English Mineral Makeup

Fairy Godmother2If you’re anything like us, what you want from your beauty experts is not reams of columns about their experience at a gazillion pound a week spa nestled in a remote mountainside a 20 hour flight away. No, what you want to know is what works. Fortunately, beauty editor and our Beauty Insider Rachel Fiddes is a like-minded girl. There’s so much choice out there that the brain boggles – so with her new series, Monthly Miracles, Rachel presents her edit of the best. Granted, these products won’t always be super-cheap, but they will be worth investing in and they will WORK. Read on for her first hot tip…

If there’s one beauty treat you spend out on this month, make it Fairy Godmother (£55) from English Mineral Makeup. Brand new from mother daughter beauty duo Jeanette and Grace Burrows, the range was dreamt up when they struggled to find products to suit both their skin types. Jeanette wanted to blend away age-spots, thread veins, soften fine lines and be traceless on mature skin, while Grace has a keen interest in sustainability and natural gentle products that don’t aggravate the skin or block pores, but still needs good coverage for young problem skin. As Jeanette says “We couldn’t find it, so we made it”.

100% mineral ingredients with no skin irritating artificial colours, chemicals, perfumes or preservatives. It’s also vegan and all the individual ingredients are sourced from non animal testing companies. Fairy Godmother was years in development and it really is astonishing. Use like a primer for the perfect base, as a finishing product to set make-up, help it last longer and add luminosity, or even as a bed-time treatment – like lingerie for your skin. A translucent powder packed with skin-nurturing anti-oxidants, rosehip and jojoba oils, it suits all skin tones and types. Just swirl it around in the pot with the complimentary Kabuki brush and apply in circular motions around the face for a natural luminous finish. Fast, easy to use and instantly flawless – my kind of beauty!
