Hey everyone! How’s your summer going? Hope you’re relaxing, having fun, and finding some new favorite bareMinerals products (we had so many new goodies for you in our May shows!). On Facebook, I shared that I’m digging my summer makeup routine: a touch of concealer, a light layer of bareMinerals Matte Foundation, then READY Touchup Mineral Veil (to control any summertime shine), and a layer of READY Skinny Dip Bronzer, which I think is the secret to making my skin look polished and refreshed…try it! My whole routine is so easy, simple, and leaves my face looking flawless.


Last week, I had a super fun day with the gorgeous Nicole Feliciano of Nicole, like so many of my friends, is a supermom and successful business woman, but is still super trendy, cool, and hip. Love that! (I also loved the chic black pants and super cool shoes she wore to the shoot).


So, QVC hooked Nicole and I up to film a series of videos. I was more than happy to introduce her to the world of bareMinerals, and I think she was equally happy to learn about our superstar products.

First up was a “low-maintenance chic” look: Prime Time Foundation Primer, Bisque Concealer, Foundation, READY Touchup Veil, and Well-Rested Face & Eye Brightener. I explained to Nicole how a fresh, flawless complexion can take a busy woman anywhere, and I showed her how to achieve the famous bareMinerals glow. She loved learning how to swirl, tap, and buff!


Next, Nicole asked me which products are must-haves for going on a getaway. I showed her why Advanced Protection SPF 20 Moisturizer in Sheer Tint is a must. She loved that she was getting hydration, SPF, and tint in one step. We also used some other bareMinerals essentials: READY Bronzer, READY Eye Shadow Quad in The Truth, Flawless Definition Waterproof Mascara, and Moxie Lip Gloss.

The last thing we talked about was how to wear metallic eye shadow. Nicole said a lot of her readers ask about metallic makeup. I explained that anyone can wear metallic, and we have a lot of different options to give the eyes a wearable metallic/shimmer look: Prime Time Primer Shadows and READY Eye Shadow Quad in The Soundtrack.


By the end of our day together, Nicole was looking absolutely gorgeous. This busy mom is a true force of beauty!
