    I love Bare Minerals! I've been using it for about 1.5-2 years now. When you add the powder it gives you a nice matte finish, but still a slight natural sheen. When I first got it I used to pull all my friends into the bathroom with me and give them a sample makeover. People would always wonder what the heck we were doing in there for so long. I was a walking billboard/advertisement for them! Whenever the subject comes up, my closest friends will still poke fun of me for it... Just swirl, and tap! LOL

    Other than that I use Urban Decay for eye shadow, Maybeline for mascara and something else I can't remember for eye liner.

    We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

      I can't believe you did all your own make-up, not that I don't have faith in you, but you looked amazing and I am so worried that I will be too nervous or excited to do my own make-up. I am afriad I will look like a clown cause I am shaking so much. This gives me faith that if the make-up artist there is not so good, maybe I can do my own.

          I threw out all of my old makeup and brushes after my face issue - just wanted to be safe. Anyway, I got the bare essentials starter kit and just tried it out. I think I like it! It's really easy to use and looks natural. I have a grease slick on my face most of the time so I'm hoping this helps with that.

            What I like about bare minerals is that it's not really cakey or unnatural looking but you can totally conceal any spots you need to without wearing a ton of makeup. Also the amount they give you lasts for a long time and you can blend the colors.

              Is there a difference between Bare Escentuals & Bare Minerals. Is Bare Essentials also the same thing? I was thinking about trying it. I don't wear makeup daily. My powder is clinique. I bought it for a wedding in 2001. I should probably get some new stuff soon. I just feel like I should finish off the container, but 6 years is probably getting a little old. I bought it to wear in a friends wedding, because I didn't own powder. She is already divorced & remarried, so thats probably a good clue the powder is old.

              I use the citi diamond card & I'm almost eligable for another $100 gift card. I've thought about getting it for sephora & getting all the stuff I need to start using bare escentuals. Everyone who I know that wears it, becomes a spokesperson for it because they love it that much. I also like a clean feel & natural look.

              This isn't exactly makeup, but my must have beauty product is Sally Hansen nail polish. It's the best & it's cheap. It's so easy to put on & has a great finish. I'm always getting asked where I get my nails done. I do it myself at home with Sally Hansen. They make a french manicure set with a white paint pen. It's the easiest french manicure I've ever done.

                Mostly Clinique and MAC. Although Lancome makes some really great eyeshadows and blushes! The powder is finely milled and goes on like a dream:)

                  I love MAC makeup. Because my skin is oily I use Proactiv for cleansing and then put on a light moisturizer from body shop before using any other makeup. I've never tried Bare Essentials.. maybe it's not in Canada.. or I just don't know where it's carried..
