On Friday of last week myself and my gorgeous blogging friends Eltoria and Melody made our way to House of Fraser in Bristol to a bareMinerals beauty blogger event. Hosted by the lovely Ashton (my lovely ex-Benebabe friend) and her colleague Joseph, we had a wonderful evening, munching on the most amazing cup cakes, trying out all of the mineral enriched makeup and having our nails painted by the lovely lady at the Estee Lauder counter.
The evening started with Ashton showing us all the ‘Swirl, Tap, Buff’ technique for applying the mineral foundation. In the picture below, Ashton has applied the Original SPF 15 Foundation to Eltoria. It’s such an easy way and such an effective way to apply loose powder and gives such a great coverage – something I never thought you could get with a mineral powder. Made with only 5 ingredients, all of which are minerals, bareMinerals Original Foundation is very kind to the skin and covers blemishes with the easiest of touches.
We all then received our make-unders and got to try out the individual techniques ourselves. Something that I love about bareMinerals is that the MUA’s get you to try it out yourself so you know how to do it when you get the product home!

The bareMineral’s team were so lovely and we came away with a very generous goodie bag, in the most gorgeous pink and white stripped paper bag. It contained a lolly pop, a mini version of their Mascara and the cutest mini Moxie lipstick! All products are photographed below! I also bought the bareMineral Starter Kit (at £50 for 8 products including a full sized foundation and 3 brushes), an eyeshadow, an eyeshadow brush and also the Night Serum!
