Bare Escentuals Makeup

So I'm sure you've seen the various commercials for the new mineral makeups that have filled the makeup market recently. If you're like me, though, you may be wondering what makes a mineral makeup different from a regular cosmetic and if there's even a noteworthy difference between the two. If you want to pursue mineral makeup, there is a sure way to go, and that way is through Bare Escentuals makeup, the makeup line that started producing mineral makeup in the first place.

The actual name of the company is Bare Escentuals makeup, and they are an umbrella company for bareMinerals makeup, RareMinerals, and their own Bare Escentuals body products. Trying to steer away from the processed cosmetics field, Bare Escentuals took on cosmetics and went natural. Most makeup contains a myriad of ingredients that are artificial and processed. Foundation for instance, contains a slew of ingredients most people don't even recognize: ascorbyl palmitate, butylene glycol, dimethicone, propylene glycol, and tocopheryl acetate. What the heck?

BareMinerals makeup uses only natural ingredients to create long lasting and dependable makeup. Straight from the Bare Escentuals website itself, Bare Escentuals products boast of being "free of any preservatives, fillers, or binders, 100% pure bareMinerals represents the ideal mix of makeup and skincare." BareMinerals makeup seeks to take the chemicals out of makeup so that cosmetics best serve your skin and your appearance. The caked-on makeup look isn't attractive and takes away from natural beauty. Bare Escentuals aims to restore and enhance natural beauty using natural products. Their push is purity—their makeup is pure and free from unneeded chemicals and contaminants.

Bare Escentuals makeup just goes to show that the best kind of cosmetics are the natural kinds and that you can use nature to enhance your beauty. The most successful cosmetics are the non-manufactured kind, and if you can invest in Bare Escentuals products, you'll be doing your skin and appearance a service. Your skin is natural, so you should use natural products to enhance yourself.

I do realize that not all non Bare Escentuals makeup is bad and that you can find great processed makeup that works with your skin. There are several products out there with skin enhancing characteristics, products that don't come from Bare Escentuals cosmetics lines. If anything, though, mineral makeup is an option worth looking into, especially if you're currently frustrated with your makeup and are looking for a new look. And like all cosmetics and skincare products, you'll need to experiment to discover what works best with your skin and complexion. Good luck!
