Mineral Makeup Foundation - Adonia Shade

Mineral Foundation For Balanced Warm And Cool Undertones

A mineral makeup foundation that is natural and perfect for light to medium skin tone, and is a cool soft pink combined with a hint of warm golden undertone for the skin that rarely tans. It is a mineral makeup shade that can work well for women who have a slight peach undertone, yet possess pinkish red overtones to their skin. It can also be lightened with FIORELLA or JENNIFER if it is still too dark, or darkened with a touch of JACINTA for deepening this shade with a perfect balance of pink and golden undertones. This is a wonderful shade for women of Northern European descent such as English or Irish heritage. Works very well for natural redhead complexions.

    Looks natural

    Posted by Carol P Cuadra on 9th May 2018

    Beautiful, light color. Doesn't crease, if I use one of your moisturizers first. I'm 67, and this is the best foundation for my very sensitive skin.

    The Adonia shade foundation is perfect for my very fair skin. It brushes on smoothly for a flawless finish. I even use it to cover the dark circles under my eyes. I used Bare Minerals for several years, but I find that the Sterling Minerals products work better for me.

    natural coverage

    Posted by steff on 4th Oct 2017

    I have light to medium skin, this foundation is a perfect match when I add a touch of fiorella. The coverage is buildable and excellent. Without telling my mom I switched makeup, she said “your foundation looks perfect today”. I have enjoyed the moist application ad prefer it so much to the scratchy buffing required by other brands.

    As Good as any liquid foundation

    Posted by Ellen Mueller on 6th Sep 2017

    When I ordered a sample, I was skeptical since other brands of mineral make-up caked up and made me look 10 years older while not providing the right coverage. I have always tried to get a natural look with foundation. I was pleasantly surprised that the makeup goes on smoothly and has staying power. It doesn't seem to aggravate my psoriasis which is why I ordered it in the first place. The application is easy and quick and I can still get my foundation on in a couple of minutes. A Satisfied Customer!

    me again..lil update

    Posted by Melissa Davis on 29th Jan 2017

    Just realized this morning, using the lighter shade Calla as a concealer first works even better and actually gives me that full coverage look without having to use a lot of product. I actually used my old liquid foundation brush, sprayed it with a self-made concoction of water and a few drops of hemp oil, and concealed my red acne scars with it. Then just lightly blended the Adonia over it also using the moist method, and voila! So fast and easy. Like I said before, LEARNING CURVE. Do not be quick to give up on this stuff y'all- it takes trial and error, but the results can be breathtaking.

    Learning curve involved but CLEANEST MAKEUP you will ever use!

    Posted by Melissa Davis on 24th Jan 2017

    Okay, so I don't usually write reviews for anything, mostly because eventually everything doesn't suit me. I have had acne-prone skin since I was 12/13 years old- I am almost 30 now. After years of the onslaught of every OTC and high end cleanser/treatment/moisturizer/make-up and the endless trial and errors with homeopathic methods (yes I even tried to make my own make up), I had pigmentation scars, pock marks, constant acne flare ups, blackheads, dry patches, redness, and hyper sensitivity- we are talking itching, burning irritated skin all the time- with little to no relief from annnyyytthiiinngggggg. I was literally in complete despair...until now. This make up is so pure and so delicate (I use the "delicate" kind), that it has helped clear and calm my skin in a matter of weeks. Now, there is a serious learning curve with this stuff, though. First- I suggest getting LOTS of samples and combining multiple colors. I am very pale but warm almost sallow, blue eyed, brown haired- I use Adonia as a base and lighten it slightly with Calla and warm it up with just a touch of Mirabella. I also use it very lightly using the flat top brush and moist method. I do not need to buff, which is great because that can be irritating to a girl with skin like mine. Now, when done correctly on cleansed, exfoliated, moisturized skin, and when the right shades are used- the result is soooo natural and healthy looking- too much looks heavy- I would rather let a little imperfection show through than have it caked on. Plus, if you are wearing it everyday and taking care of your skin properly, the blemishes will clear so fast, it won't matter. Now the second part of the learning curve is washing this off without irritating sensitive skin. My holy grail of facial cleansers, my friends, and you will love me for this, if you are bold enough to try and diligent enough to stick with it, is YOGURT. YES. Yogurt's creaminess helps melt this make-up away and its lactic acid keeps your skin exfoliated and supple, making the make up even more beautiful when applied. I moisturize with hemp oil (if you have acne, you should be too). Anyway, I am so happpyyyyy. I wear this everyday and love putting it on. I set it with a light dusting of the satin rose mineral veil. I touch it up towards the end of the day if I decide to go out- but its lasting power is lovely- it melts into your skin so naturally- you forget you are wearing it. With this make- up, you have the chance to conceal your insecurities while healing them. This make-up is MAGIC. Also, added bonus, the packages always arrive super fast. Sterling Minerals, please stay around forever, I LOVE YOU!
