Hello everyone, this is my first post & I am super excited to get started with all of this. First off, I would like to officially introduce myself. My name is Lili--I am a young makeup artist that has a passion in makeup, fashion, and alike. It is a hobby of mine to obsess over new beauty products, fashion and beauty trends, etc. I also love to write and communicate with others so I figured this way right up my alley!
I worked for MAC Cosmetics for about 2 years. For that time being, I believed that MAC was the only makeup company to exist on planet Earth itself. Yes, I did hear of other brands (including bareMinerals) but never really had the urge to try anything else. That was until I left my job at MAC and moved away to school. Starting college, I came to learn about myself, and I found that I had a love for makeup and fashion, no matter what brand it was. Shortly after, I landed an interview with Bare Escentuals--a company I faintly knew about. After months of interviewing and waiting, I found out I`d been hired for a position at the not-yet-opened Bare Escentuals bareMinerals counter! The first thing that came to my head was, "Oh great--mineral makeup. No color, no fun, no artistry". It only took a matter of time for me to absolutely fall in love with the products that bareMinerals has to offer--I was very impressed.
The thing that got me hooked the most was the foundation. I`ve always been a fan of full-coverage foundation, yet found that liquid and cream foundations looked "cakey" and fake. I never really thought there was a product out there that helped me achieve a natural, yet covered finish. WELL I FOUND IT, ALRIGHT! Ladies--the Original bareMinerals foundation is one of the most incredible products I have ever come across. This lightweight mineral infused foundation is 100% minerals that goes on like a powder but finishes as a soft, creamy appearance. It is buildable, but not cakey. It also has a beautiful natural glow. My face has never looked so good!!!
A lot of people claim that the foundation never worked for them and that it did not cover enough. This is because they were not properly taught how to use the makeup. It really is all in the swirl, tap, and buff--swirling the brush into the minerals "activates" the minerals by warming them up. The more you buff the brush onto the skin (in a circular motion), the more coverage you will receive, leaving your skin flawless.
Another wonderful thing about this foundation is that it is so pure that you can sleep in it. As a college student, I don`t always remember or have the patience to remove my makeup from the end of the night. Not having to worry about breaking out horribly when I sleep in my makeup is an amazing feeling!
All I have to say is everything happens for a reason. I truly believe that I found bareMinerals during a time of need. My skin never pleased me and I was always jealous of others, even as a MAC makeup artist. The bareMinerals Foundation allowed me to feel natural, yet beautiful, and I don`t think I will ever go back to other foundations.
