This week has been filled with style, beauty and amazing new friends! Day 1 of the Independent Fashion Bloggers Conference included panels of some of the industry’s most influential. I had so much fun getting my DIY on, sampling Spring beauty, discovering a new obsession (fashionable headphones..crazy chic!) and checking out fab jewelry.

I’ve never been one for on-ear headphones, but Monster has completely changed my perspective. The glam Diamond Tear styles and interchangeable headbands totally won me over, added to my wish list!

Barely There

In need of a makeup refresher, I headed over to the bareMinerals booth at the IFB Conference. After trying out a couple of new products, I was on my way with a gift bag, filled with their newest foundation, precision brush, concealer and concealer brush.

While getting ready for Lucky FABB the next morning, I decided to test out the READY SPF 20 Foundation. To my surprise it was incredibly lightweight, yet had great coverage. Unfortunately I wasn’t matched the correct color, so with the help of bronzer, I was able to achieve the color of my skin tone. I later ordered my correct color from Nordstrom.  Their color palette made it easy to find the true match. Choose a color that appears darker than your skin tone. I was originally matched with Medium Beige, but Medium Tan was my best match.


I love the idea of wearing something lightweight, that doesn’t feel like a mask. The Precision Face angled brush makes it really simple apply the foundation evenly, even around hard to reach spots like around the nose. It looks completely natural, and after a long day at Lucky FABB, no touch-up needed. I’ve been using it ever since!

If you would like to learn more about the foundation, this Thursday, September 27th at 12pm PDT / 3pm EDT Creator of bareMinerals, Leslie Blodgett, and Celebrity Makeup Artist, Fiona Stiles will be LIVE on Facebook at http://www.Facebook.com/bareMinerals. They will show you how to get Red Carpet Ready and introduce the bareMinerals Ready SPF 20 Foundation. Join the conversation at #bareMineralslive. Tune in the first ten minutes of the show for a chance to win an exclusive bareMinerals giveaway.
