With so many different brands and types of makeup that are available, it’s very easy to become intimidated and dismiss makeup as a false construct that exists only to help men objectify all of us, but it’s actually one of our best friends in the quest to embrace, develop and maintain our Aphrodite Attitudes! Think about it for a second… Aphrodite would NEVER allow the crazy stuff that’s in our air like car exhaust, pollen and dust near her face, so why should we?! Thankfully, more and more women are adopting that mentality.
I don’t know about you, but I could watch QVC for hours, especially when they are spotlighting Bare Escentuals, Mally Beauty, Josie Maran or Laura Geller. These brands blended my long-time passion for great skin care with my new love of makeup. Josie Maran, for example, is known for having high quality argan oil infused into all of her cosmetics.
Bare Escentuals has been my preferred makeup for about five years now and I thinks it’s a great brand to start with if you are just starting to play with makeup. The minerals are very pigment rich so less is definitely more! A second reason Bare Escentuals is perfect for makeup novice is that many of their kits come with instructional DVDs that will teach you the basics and help you master classic trends like the smoky eye. As much as I am in love with Bare Escentuals, I’m ready to branch out and try other brands.
