Celestial beauty: Star-studded picks from Bare Minerals

Looking for clean beauty gifts this holiday season? Don’t worry, I have you covered.

Bare Minerals has been around since 1995 when they launched their iconic mineral foundation. In fact, this foundation, which is a powder that you apply with a brush, was one of my very first luxury foundations. Although I haven’t dabbled in the brand too much since that time so many years ago, it’s always been on my radar and I love seeing what they release every season.

Since this is a more prestige brand (you can find it at Sephora), if you are hard pressed in finding beauty products for that friend who only uses clean beauty, then Bare Minerals is a great option to look into.

Here are my top picks…

Bare Minerals Original Foundation limited edition holiday set

If your friend has never tried Bare Minerals Loose Powder Foundation, then now is a great time. Special for the holidays, this limited-edition set ($45, valued at $69), available in seven shades, includes a large collector’s jar of the Original Foundation with rose gold detailing, along with a celestial-themed charm bracelet.

The Original Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 is made with only five ingredients and provides a rich, creamy coverage while promoting clearer, healthy-looking skin. You apply it by shaking the foundation into the lid, then swirl your brush in the lid and buff it on the skin.  You are left with a beautiful finish that is natural, but medium coverage.  It lasts for eight hours and you can totally customize the amount of coverage you desire.

If you have a friend that is already a fan of this foundation, then this is the perfect gift since this jar contains more product then what you typically find in stores. I believe that it is sold out online at Sephora, but I have seen it in my local store.

Bare Minerals Northern Lights Rose Gold Makeup Palette

If you are looking for an awesome small colour gift, then take a look at the Northern Lights Rose Gold Makeup Palette ($12, valued at $30), which includes two eyeshadows and a blush.

This palette has neutral rose gold shades so it’s perfect for pretty much any skin tone. There is a GEN NUDE Blush in the colour Pink Me Up, a medium nude pink with gold pearl, and two GEN NUDE eyeshadows in the shades Anticipation (metallic radiant rose) and Woo Is Me (shimmer apricot pink).

This palette is great to toss in your bag for travel or just to carry with you on the go.  On the front is features a clear cover with confetti in it to make it extra festive.


Finally, for the lips, Bare Minerals has a ton of different lip sets available. I really love the Lunar Light Lip Duo, which features two full-size lip products.

Available in a beautiful mauve shade, this set consists of a GEN NUDE Matte Liquid Lipcolour in the colour XYZ, as well as a GEN NUDE Radiant Lipstick in the shade Sugar. The liquid lip colour delivers transfer-resistant colour that is a velvet finish. The wear is comfortable and moisturizing on the lips.  The lipstick is creamy and is full of moisturizing ingredients so your lips will never feel dry.  Both of them are long wearing and are a flattering pink mauve shade.

Bare Minerals Lunar Lip Duo

If none of these tickle you fancy, then Bare Minerals also has a ton of other holiday gift sets that will be sure to impress anyone on your list. Although there’s so many clean beauty brands around now, Bare Minerals has been kicking it for a long time and offer some impressive and stunning products.
