City Pulse

By Ashley Goldsmith

I can’t think of a single beauty conscious friend of mine that doesn’t have at least one Bare Escentuals product making its rounds in their daily beauty routine. For me, I’m completely and utterly obsessed with the Mineral Veil Powder, it’s essential to setting all of the moisturizing and concealing I’ve done. For my acne-prone friend the RareMinerals Blemish Therapy is perfect for simultaneously covering imperfections and working to prevent future breakouts, while my beauty editor friend swears by bareVitamins – Skin Rev-er Upper for creating a perfect canvas for makeup application.

If you’re already a cult follower or have yet to discover the greatness of the mineral makeup giant you’re in for a treat. Yesterday the brand opened their Flagship NYC Boutique, in Herald Square. The grand opening celebration continues through Monday and is full of gift raffles, token of appreciation gifts given to the first 100 visitors and a special visit by national Makeup Artist Renee Smith all day today.

Make an appointment for a make under with Renee or take a walk in and browse the boutique for some essential beauty steals.
