Everyday Makeup Made Easy

Posted on August 11th, 2009 by liapatrice in Makeup

Bonjour Mademoiselles!  I hope we’re all doing and looking fabulous today!  Just as we would any other day, right?  Okay, okay.  Who am I kidding?  We all know we have those days when we just don’t feel like getting all dolled up.  And believe me, about 75% of the week I feel that way.  If it was up to me, I would be makeup-less and in my PJ’s 24/7!  But unfortunately, this dress code isn’t appropriate in most workplaces.  So I try to find ways to make getting ready, aka getting pretty, simple.

Now I’m sure most of you have heard of Bare Escentuals and their bareMineral makeup line.  Well I have to say that I am an absolute fan of their stuff.  As industry leaders in mineral makeup, they find more and more ways to teach the non-professional how to do their makeup professionally.  With DVD’s and step-by-step kits to get you started, their line has become increasingly popular.  Not to mention that the products themselves are great!  They have a wide range of complexion colors from fair to deep, their eye colors come in varying textures and blend super easily, and the quality of their makeup brushes aren’t too bad either!

bareMinerals Getting Started Eyes KitFor me, I like things to be laid out plain and simple.  And whenever I can buy things in a set I’m all for it!  One of my favorite kits is the bareMinerals Get Started Eyes Kit.  This 7-piece kit comes with 4 very natural eye colors and three brushes (contouring, defining, and lining).  It also includes a How-To guide with simple steps on how to achieve your desired look.  You can go from an every day look to a bumped up evening look.  The colors can be used wet or dry, stay on all day, and like I mentioned before blend so easily that it’s almost impossible to mess it up.  They make it so simple that doing your eye makeup will take no time at all.  And when you’re like me rushing in the morning so that you can catch the train to the city (all while trying to look cute mind you), this kit is the perfect solution.

Check out some of my other favorite kits bareMinerals offers such as their tutorials on looks like the smokey eye, their complexion kits, and their Free to BE collections that come with matching clutch!

Until next time ladies… xoxo
