bareMinerals Modern Pop

bm-Modern-PopbareMinerals wasn’t a brand I usually gravitated towards, since a number of years back I thought all it consisted of was mineral products (ie: loose powdered products that was a recipe for disaster with my clumsy-self). But lately I’ve been thoroughly enjoying their lip products, and now trying out their eye shadows I’m a convert. One dab into the eye shadow pan and it packs on colour like nobodies business. So you can definitely say their colours are pigmented, and you only need to dip into the product with your brush ever so slightly to get this natural look — something I tend to go for on the regular.





I’m going to walk you through the steps on how I created (yet another) natural look using some of the items in the bareMinerals Modern Pop collection.

bareMinerals-Complexion1. Bobbi Brown Extra Eye Repair: If I don’t apply an under eye cream my eyes get really dry. This is one of my 2 favourite eye creams that I’ll keep repurchasing.
2. philosophy Full of Promise: This is a firming neck cream, but I prefer to use it on my face when I have annoying dry patches that won’t even go away after exfoliating. It’s the epitome of moisturizing face creams and feels luxurious going on.
3. bareMinerals Complexion Rescue & Beauty Blender Sponge: A new foundation out by bareMinerals. It definitely has a strange consistency as it’s a gel cream formula. What I like best is its a no-mirror application type of coverage. It glides onto the skin but doesn’t give too much coverage unless you want to pile it on.

BeautyBlender-application1. Cle de Peau Concealer & Beauty Blender Sponge: I can’t believe I am almost out of my super expensive concealer. I will definitely head back to Nordstrom to pick this little fella up again. Like always, apply concealer in a triangle shape on the face and under the eyes to appear brighter. Blend in with beauty blender sponge for a natural creaseless look.
2. Nars bronzer (shade Laguna) & bareMinerals brush: I haven’t picked up another full sized bronzer by my favourite brand because I’m trying to use up some samples. I don’t mind this bronzer, but you have to apply using a light hand!
3. NYX Cream Blush (shade Glow): This was the cream blush colour I used on my wedding day. A favourite piece of makeup I cherish, and to achieve a healthy glow with a bit of pink to the cheeks.

Modern-Pop-eyeshadow1. bareMinerals Modern Pop eyeshadow (Modern Icon palette): Apply chic all over the lid, in the inner corner and on brow bone to lighten up the entire eye area.
2. Using the same palette dip your brush into the colour carefree and apply only to the crease of your eye for a pop of peach.
3. Finally, add a touch of the colour exhale to the outer corner of the eye to add depth and deepen up the lash area.

bareMinerals-SS20151. bareMinerals Lasting Line: Apply this shade to the lower lash line.
2. bareMinerals Lash Domination: I loved this mascara so much I gave one to my neighbour. She loves it too! It adds volume and whispy lengths to create a voluminious natural full look to your eyelashes.
3 & 4: I mixed up the two photos, forgive me! I applied bareMinerals lipstick in Express Yourself, and then for some added glossy shine I used bareMinerals cream glaze lip topcoat in a gorgeous vanilla cream colour.

    1. @Alli: I remember trying them out when I first moved from Newfoundland to Ontario (Canada) in 2005-2006 or so. I tried their mineral loose powder foundation. I *think* they had eye shadows back then also in loose format, but don’t quote me on it. :)

  1. I hope this doesn’t come across as too harsh, but wanted to provide you with a little bit of feedback. Although you look lovely in all of your sponsored posts, it feels a little forced. I noticed a huge shift to sponsored posts when you moved to California and find myself quickly scrolling to the bottom or else passing right by. Your blog used to be the first one that I’d flip to on my feedly but this has changed in the last little while. I completely understand that blogging is changing and you may be happy with your content but wanted to weigh in.I hope you can find your awesome blogging voice again because I miss it!

  2. As someone who doesn’t wear, nor KNOW HOW to wear makeup, I think the natural look is the way to go! The older I get, the more I see the reasoning behind fine tune touches but I almost feel so out of touch with it that it’s intimidating to try. Thanks for giving me some ideas and products to use.

  3. I have used my moms bare minerals lotion before and love it! I love your look! I need some help in the make-up area. ( mom of two small children, I usually dont get make-up every day). I am trying to at least put mascara on though. I am going to use this a reference.

  4. Bare Minerals was one of the companies that I tried when I was first experimenting with wearing more makeup. I was pleased with the quality of their products and my mom wears their lipstick. Great review.

  5. First I wasn’t sure about the colors you picked. I dont know that shade of lipstick is weird for me. However once you actually put it on you, it looks really nice. I love the fact you actually showed how to put it on and not just show us, for people like me who don’t wear makeup. Very nice!

  6. I have always liked the Bare Minerals line, but admittedly I hardly wear them. When I want my look to be ‘barely there’ I end up just using a BB or CC cream, lipgloss, and maybe a touch of mascara. But the look you have is fab and I want to reconsider them again for my daily makeup essentials. So thank sharing your post!
