Skinsorials Makes It Debut At Planet Beauty

Great news, bareMinerals fans! If you were saddened by the departure of their skincare line at Planet Beauty, bareMinerals is back with their new Skinsorials collection! Considered a 3 Part Beauty Ritual (Purify, Empower and Moisturize) you're going to love the simplicity of this brand new skincare. 

To give you the best cleansing option for your skin type and preference, there are four Skinsorials cleansers to choose from. If you're looking for a cleanser that will cleanse on a deep level, then you'll love the Pure Plush Gentle Deep Cleansing Foam. If you wear full-coverage foundation, then you will appreciate the lifting power of this creamy, foaming cleanser. Elderflower, Rosemary Extracts and mineral-rich Sea Salts keep your skin refreshingly clean and fresh from debris. Just a little amount of this product is all it takes to see some foaming action. 

If you're looking for some purifying power in your cleanser, then the Clay Chameleon Transforming Purifying Cleanser is right up your alley. This clay cleanser transforms into a cream as you work it into your skin. Brazilian Red Clay not only gives this cleanser an interesting brick red color, but also works to purify your skin and lift impurities. Papaya, Bamboo Extracts and mineral-rich Sea Salts help gently exfoliate, and detox the skin while leaving it soft and hydrated. The combined scent of Bergamot and Mandarin awaken your senses with each cleanse. 

Weatherproof your beauty routine for Rainy Days

It looks like El Nino has finally hit and the much-needed rain is here! Next to figuring out how to rotate your wardrobe to accommodate the wet weather, you'll also want to to weather-proof your hair and makeup for all-day looks that won't melt down your face. To keep the rain from cramping your style, check out our tips for looking your best.

1. Waterproof your eyes: While you may have your umbrella, sometimes weather has a mind of its own. The wind can cause rain to go in all directions, including horizontal and straight into your face. Don't get caught with raccoon eyes and wear weatherproof mascara and eyeliner. If the mascara you love isn't a waterproof formula, try bareMinerals Locked and Coated Lash Top Coat. Simply run the fine bristle-brush over your mascara application and your lashes will be sealed and protected from water. Stila's Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner will stay in place all day long, as well. You don't have to forgo lining your eyes on rainy days.

2. Go easy on the foundation: The high humidity and rain doesn't always pair up well with a heavy foundation. It can look extra thick, giving your skin an unwanted caked look. Use something a little lighter like a BB cream and blend your concealer carefully on unwanted blemishes and imperfections. Set your makeup with a matte powder like jane iredale's Beyond Matte in Translucent to keep your face makeup in place all day long.


Keep Your Skin Glowing in Dry, Cold Weather

When it's dry and windy out, your skin can lose its luminous glow. You may notice your regular makeup flaking or looking patchy and heavy on your face. If you're already taking preventative steps to keep your skin from becoming dehydrated, you're on the right track. If you want your makeup to look gorgeous and dewy, then consider the following tips for a winter glow. 

1. Steer clear of matte finish foundation products: To create a lovely, dewy canvas, choose a foundation that is sheer or medium coverage. Dr. Perricone's No Foundation Foundation is one of my favorite products to recommend for winter skin because it gives a beautiful radiance with a dewy finish. Redness and blotchiness is immediately blurred away for a natural look you'll love. It also contains a non-chemical SPF 30, which is always a plus.

2. Seek the help of highlighter: Get a healthy-looking glow with the help of a liquid luminizer. Stila's All Over Shimmer is a must-have for those winter skin blues. It immediately enhances the look of your skin with soft-focus pigments. Wear this product alone or mix it into your foundation or moisturizer for an instant brightening effect.

3. Go easy under your eyes: One of the places we notice dryness in our skin is right under our eyes. If you're battling dryness and crepiness, you'll want to use a good eye cream. Aside from doing that, you'll also want to minimize the use of heavy under eye concealers. The Stroke of Light Eye Brighteners from bareMinerals are great to use during this time of the year because they provide instant radiance without drawing attention to fine lines and wrinkles.

Get Inspired with this Bridal Look Using Bare Minerals

We’re in full bloom wedding season and we’re here to inspire you with more wedding looks! If you’re still debating on how you want to wear your makeup for your special day, don’t stress—it’s a big decision. As a bride, it’s important for you to feel comfortable in your makeup. After all, you still want to feel like YOU. If you’re getting ready to trial some looks and need some inspiration, check out the bridal look our very own Makeup Department Lead Sara tried with Bare Minerals.

Since Sara has natural glowing skin, our makeup artist Jessica Orozco decided to enhance it with the BareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation. This breathable, lightweight foundation is ideal for any bride who wants to look done up without feeling cakey. It’s also ideal for sensitive brides who have some pigmentation and redness in their skin. The Bare Natural 07 was the perfect shade for Sara. To set her foundation, Jessica used the Original Mineral Veil. To lightly highlight and contour Sara’s face, she used the Ready Bronzer in High Dive and Stroke of Light in #2.


Met Gala Makeup Inspiration for Spring and Summer

The Met Gala was a week ago, but we’re still obsessing over all the makeup looks we saw trending among some of our favorite celebrities. If you’re looking for some beauty inspiration to add a little sizzle to your spring and summer, check out some of our favorite looks from the Met Gala.

All eyes were on Sarah Jessica’s head piece, but we loved everything about her jade eye shadow. Recreate this look with bareMineral’s Soiree Eye Shadow and draw extra attention to your eyes by smudging out your eye liner. Be generous with your mascara (or opt for falsies) and go nude/pink with your lips.

Selena Gomez looked absolutely radiant in her white gown and beautiful updo, but her red lip brought her look to another level. Carry a classic red lipstick in your purse this summer and bring it out when you want to stand out. Smashbox’s Legendary Lipstick is a great classic shade to own.  Complete your look with a cat eye and mascara.

Jennifer Lopez always looks bronzed and beautiful and we loved her intense eye shimmer at the Met Gala. Steal her look with Stila’s Metal Foil Eye Shadows and tap along the outer corners of the eye for a dramatic effect. Contour your face and bronze up for a smoldering spring and summer look.

This Week's Beauty Must-Haves from bareMinerals

bareMinerals has some new products that you're going to want in your beauty rotation through the summer months. The weather is warming up again, which means it's time to re-evaluate our daily beauty routine. bareMinerals has always encouraged us to embrace our natural beauty and with the recent launch of Complexion Rescue, it's apparent that their au naturel mentality isn't going anywhere. 

If you've been feeling the wrath of dry weather on your lips, then you're going to fall in love with the new bareMinerals Pop Of Passion Lip Oil-Balms. Oils have been taking over the beauty industry for a few years now and it shouldn't come as a surprise. When used correctly, oils can really have some amazing beauty benefits that can leave us feeling hydrated and nourished. 

The Pop of Passion Lip Oil-Balms instantly nourish and hydrate lips with a solid oil formula that melts beautifully into lips. Antioxidants, Passion Fruit Oil, Sunflower Oil and Jojoba Oil make the balms non-sticky, while giving lips a healthy-looking shine. Staining pigments in the formula allow for buildable coverage as you reapply, leaving your lips stained in between applications. With four neutral shades and 4 bright shades, there is an oil-balm for almost every occasion. As a lipgloss lover, I love the simplicity of this product. The perfect lip product for the woman on the go, you don't need a mirror or lipliner to apply. While you can layer the oil-balms with any of the other lip products, they really look beautiful worn alone.

Survive Winter Skin with Bare Minerals

Last week, Punxsutawney Phil predicted six more weeks of winter, which means it may be a little longer before you can take out your flip flops back East. If your skin is still suffering from the cold weather, bareMinerals has a limited 4 piece collection which may just be the answer to your skin’s woes. The Winter Survival kit comes with four of the best skincare products bareMinerals has to offer. Even if you don’t live in one of the more frigid parts of the country, you should still check this kit out for dry and dehydrated skin.

The downfall to battling dry skin is that it can deplete essential moisture in our skin that keeps us looking youthful. If you already have some fine lines and wrinkles, experiencing dry skin can make them look more noticeable, which let’s face it—is not fun. Smooth out fine lines and wrinkles with bareMinerals’ Wrinkle Repair and regain some of your youth. Infused with bareMineral’s exclusive ActiveSoil Complex, this lightweight treatment contains anti-aging peptides and plant extracts which help target unsightly wrinkles and keep them from becoming more prominent. The perfect wrinkle-fighter for the bareMinerals lover, this treatment gives the Winter Survival Kit an edge.

Wearing scarves to keep your neck warm is a great idea, but what are you doing at home to keep your neck looking beautiful? The Extra Firming Neck Cream helps tighten, firm and improve the texture of your neck and décolleté area with ActiveSoil Complex, while keeping it moisturized and protected against harsh, dry environments.  A rich, creamy formula, your neck and décolleté will feel instantly soothed.
