A post about make-up!

by Christen Coppola


So how about a post today about make-up? Why not!

So, I work at Bare Minerals part time, mainly because I just love make up and between gratis and the employee discount and all the wonderful ladies that work there... well its just a win-win. Here's a look I did today, and, this makeup just instantly makes me skin look amazing.

I'll walk you through my look below. Mind you, I use about 90% Bare Minerals, not only because I'm an employee but because I swear by it.

Pre-foundation is the Purely Nourishing tinted moisturizer mixed with L'Occitane Divine cream (just a wee bit of the latter since its expensive and a little really goes a long way for luminosity and moisture.) Then I use Bare tinted BB primer cream. Best feeling BB cream out there, I swear to you. Works completely like a primer, but smoothes on with an amazing tint.

Foundation: I use a small concealer brush to spot on the Ready pressed mineral foundation in color Medium. Then I use a light amount of the loose original foundation in Medium Beige and dust it all over with a semi dense brush. (I use the Medium with the concealer brush any where I need coverage and highlighting - under my eyes, around my nose, etc. Since its a teeny bit lighter than Medium Beige. )
I use a dense precision brush to blend.

Post-Foundation: I use BM Warmth on the outer parts of my forehead, cheeks, nose and chin. Then a highlighting mineral veil lightly all over. I then use a concealer brush again with an all over luminizer in The Love Affair. It's one of my favorite products (In the white Ready case.)

Eyes: I love Urban Decay eyelid primer. Eyes is the Hidden Agenda duo, along with Queen Phyllis loose shadow in the inner corners of my eyes. Lash Domination mascara.

I also love the Bare Minerals eyebrow pencil in universal light.
