Bare Skin Launch at Planet Beauty

If you're a Bare Minerals purist and the thought of leaving your favorite mineral foundation scares you, there is no need. Bare Minerals has finally launched their first ever liquid foundation, Bare Skin. There's a catch though--this isn't just another liquid foundation. Bare Minerals is proud to introduce their revolutionary brightening serum foundation. You read correctly--this foundation is going to help improve the look of your skin.

If unwanted pigmentation and lackluster skin tone brought you to Bare Minerals in the first place, then you're going to want to try Bare Skin. It has an ultra-thin, no-makeup feel that won't leave your skin feeling suffocated. Allure Magazine has called it, "The Liquid Photoshop". Free of silicones, oils, parabens and fragrance, this foundation is hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic. Jojoba-coated mineral pigments, lilac plant stem cells and vitamin C all work together to brighten skin and improve dark spots, leaving your skin looking radiant and healthier than before. A non-chemical SPF 20 helps protect your skin against future damage.

If you're worried about the coverage, I guarantee this bottle of liquid magic will surprise you. It builds to the coverage desired, so start with 2 drops and build from there. I suggest using the brush specifically designed for Bare Skin if you want a flawless, full coverage. It really makes a difference when applying this foundation. 

Met Gala 2014 Inspiration

Every year, the Met Gala delivers with high fashion, gorgeous beauty trends and artful inspiration that makes all of us want to be a little more fierce and fabulous. From classic ball gowns to modern short dresses, A-List celebrities make their mark on the red carpet, taking risks and going bold. This year, I was particularly surprised with some of our favorite younger actresses rocking the red carpet in a seamless fashion. Blake Lively, Hailee Steinfeld and Emma Stone all brought a different look to the Gala and each was a winner in their own right. 

Blake Lively

Why we loved her look: No matter what role she's playing on screen, she sure knows how to rock the vintage Hollywood glam look. From her sexy, vintage waves to her natural makeup and heart-stopping dress, it was hard to take your eyes off her.
