My makeup exploration has evolved over the past 5 years. I was a total eyeliner, mascara, and lip gloss kinda girl prior to my intro with Bare Escentuals. Bare Escentuals has done 2 major things for me. Most importantly my mom started wearing this makeup 5 years ago when going through chemo therapy and her fight with breast cancer. The people and the makeup line made her feel so good and so pretty while at the same time she felt so ill and uncomfortably selfconscious. So, thank you for her moments of feel good. Secondly, on a more materialistically vain level, Bare Escentuals taught me how to wear makeup; foundations, powders, and cheek color. Both my mom and I have since moved on from mineral makeup. Mom is healthy and using Trish McEvoy and I am infatuated with Laura Mercier's Flawless Face. These are my go-to products that help me with my moments of feel good.
