Make it a beautiful Mother's Day with bareMinerals makeovers (and breakfast in bed)!

The best thing about a mother-daughter relationship is sharing: experiences, wisdom and, obviously, beauty products. But we know it isn’t easy to buy makeup for someone else. Even us pros won’t judge you for wondering if she’s Neutral Dark or Warm Deep, no matter how close you are. That’s why we’re inviting you to visit a bareMinerals boutique on Mother’s Day weekend to get free make-unders together (and, with your $75 purchase, three free eyeshadows—enough to go around!).

So what should you look out for? We’ve selected a few products that we think you’ll both love, with tips on how you should each use them to best target your individual beauty needs and styles.

BLEMISH REMEDY™ SERUM
Why You’ll Both Love It
Salicylic acid has earned a stellar reputation for combatting acne. Why? Because it’s like a gentle, super effective declogger for pores, which is a service we can all benefit from, at any age. Buy one bottle to share (for now)—we’re pretty sure you’ll both fall in love.
Tips for Mom
Skip the harsh scrubs—just apply this fabulous exfoliator every morning on your T-zone, or wherever your pores look enlarged, to smooth your skin and keep those pores in check.
Tips for Daughter
Consider this serum your partner in crisis management. Rescue your skin from the stresses of life – and the stress of a monster breakout on the worst possible day – by spot treating as needed, including overnight.

COMPLEXION RESCUE™ TINTED HYDRATING GEL CREAM
Why You’ll Both Love It
Here’s a secret: we actually developed this as a moisturizer, but so many people loved the sheer coverage that we now recommend it as a one-stop-two-second-SPF-30 complexion wizard (that’s obviously super hydrating too).
Tips for Mom
We get it: you’re busy, you’re working, you’ve got kids to love (and worry about). This is your instant glow for any time you don’t have a second to spare. It’s a primer, foundation and hydrator all in one so you can get on with life. Oh, and it has SPF 30 because preventing more sun damage is key—even when you’re in a hurry.
Plays Well With… Original Foundation
For a big day in the office, date night, her graduation: add the buildable medium-to-full coverage of our Original loose mineral powder foundation, using Complexion Rescue™ as your primer for super smooth application over fine lines. Original Foundation has only 5 mineral ingredients so you’ll have a little more polish, without looking cakey or overdone.
Tips for Daughter
We know your natural, no-makeup look has to leave you poreless and flawless, and Complexion Rescue™ can help with that in a flash. Wake up, throw this on and look fresh heading out the door. Plus, it’s got SPF because prevention is key to a gorgeous face later in life.
Plays Well With… barePro® Performance Wear Powder Foundation
Go from class to a night out by using Complexion Rescue™ to prime before applying this hardworking pressed foundation that won’t clog pores or cause acne, but will leave you flawless and photo-ready.

INVISIBLE BRONZE + GLOW BAKED POWDERS
Why You’ll Both Love Them
Raise your hand if you want a gorgeous, luminous glow.
Tips for Mom
You understand the value of SPF—and a little color. That’s where bronzer comes in. This ultra-fine baked powder means a super natural looking tan is super easy to achieve. As for the highlighter, ask your daughter how to use this one because she’s definitely on to something.
Tips for Daughter
Highlighting is one of our favorite trends and it’s definitely sticking around, so invest in a baked formula that is more break-proof than a traditional compact. We love these two together because they can do everything: double as eyeshadow, gently contour and, of course, give you an instant tan and a gorgeous, eye-catching glow.

Happy shopping – and sharing – we can’t wait to see you! Find a Boutique.
