Breaking the Bare Minerals Rules

Today was a crazy day. We woke up at 6:30- thanks to two energetic boys who like to wake up when the sun comes up. We went into Boston for the day. Our boys rode the T for the first time and it was a fun, exhausting day.  Boston Common Park, Quincy Market and lots of walking were on the list.

I wanted my make up to stay on for a long time- so I went with an old favorite. Liquid foundation with Bare Minerals bronzer and blush.

I first started using Bare Minerals years ago. When I purchased my first set they walked me through all of  “the rules.”

Swirl the Bare Minerals brush in whatever powder you are using and then do the tap several times. Don’t use too much product. Use the specific Bare Minerals brush for use.

Well  I am a rule breaker! I thought I love this brush- I am going to use it with other products. And I love the Bare Minerals blush I am going to use it with liquid foundation. I loved the results.

One of my favorite things to do is use the Bare Minerals bronzer warmth and blush in aubergine with liquid foundation and studio fix powder.

Today I started with Clinique Moisture Surge and Bare Minerals prime time primer. I wanted to have a smooth base because Clinique skin perfecting foundation/concealer is heavy and needs a moisturized base to go on well. Then I used my favorite MAC studio fix power in N5 and the Bare Minerals products. I used the bronzer in warmth all over my face and the blush in aubergine on my cheek bones and the apple of my cheeks. I normally would finish with Bare Minerals clear radiance, but I didn’t have it with me today.

I love the colors Bare Minerals offers. They give that glow we all want, more so than most other brands I have tried. I have found you can mix and match Bare Minerals with other brands and the outcome is great. Breaking the rules sometimes works!
