I had to share these two new bareMinerals products with you as not only do they look beautiful but they work beautifully too! 1: bareMinerals Invisible Bronze Powder Bronzer I am in love with this bronzer!

If you have ever struggled to find the perfect nude lip before, you may just find something here… This Jan & Feb, bareMinerals UK are launching a new 40-strong ‘Gen  Nude’ nude lip collection made up of varying lipsticks, lipglosses, lipliners and for their first time ever, matte liquid lipsticks.
