Did you catch my Insta post about the bareMinerals Friends and Family sale? Unfortunately it ended on the 13th of this month, but you can still find a few great offers online and in the bareMinerals boutiques. Click to see some of the steals I found; plus some free gifts because who doesn’t appreciate freebies?

BARESKIN LIQUID FOUNDATION & PURE BRIGHTENING SIRUM – This is one of my favorite liquid foundations I’ve yet to discover. If you have troubled skin and haven’t quite found a solution to cover it all without simultaneously breaking out then I think you should give this a go! I started using this formula a few years ago while my skin was having a rough time adjusting to the East Coast humidity and thankfully it worked really well with my skin care routine. I was able to wear this over my healing breakouts without risking clogging my pores even more. Although it’s not quite as full coverage as some ladies might like, it’s a enough to disguise any blemish or red tones while looking completely natural. I wear the shade Bare Beige for the Summer time when I finally rediscover the sun!

BAREPRO PERFORMANCE WEAR PRESSED POWDER FOUNDATION – Admittedly this is the first time I have ever used the Bare Minerals Powder. I used to cling to the original foundation Matte powder as my sole source of coverage, but I eventually found I liked the combo of Bareskin Liquid Foundation and the magnifying powders best. When I went into the store the other day I tried this just on top of my Bareskin Liquid Foundation and it looked flawless! The formula was created to look good when taking videos and photos, so with the start of THE BIXBY LANE, I pretty much had no choice but to buy it immediately and take heaps of photos. The powder has an extremely smooth and light feel which makes it effortless to blend and apply. I’ll make sure to follow up on some good makeup brands/products, but I’m positive this little guy will make this list!

HIGHLIGHTING RADIANCE POWDER – The bareMinerals Radiance Highlighting Powders are probably one of the most underrated products from their line. Yes of course, their foundations are superb and the eye shadows are pigmented, but the radiance powder is that extra bit that just makes your makeup stand out amongst the rest. I chose this particular shade because during summer time I’m all about convenience…well let’s be honest, I’m always about convenience! The shade thistle radiance goes so well with nearly any skin tone and can double as blusher and bronzer! I used it just below the cheek bones for a natural sun kissed glow.

GEN NUDE MATTE LIQUID LIPCOLOR – Finding a good nude color lippie has always been so difficult for me. I guess it might be because I upgraded from chapstick to fire engine red lipsticks in one fell swoop! Yes I love the bright and vibrant shades, but sometimes I’d like to just rock a color that has the “my lips but better” shade. I’m pretty sure that is BO$$. It wasn’t an easy decision to make since bareMinerals just came out with so many new shades of the matte lipsticks (Slay, Juju, Swank, Friendship, Weekend, and Scandal were all top contenders).

BONUS FREEBIES – Since I had spent over 100 dollars on my purchase, I was able to receive 2 bareMinerals face brushes!
